And I’ll stop calling myself PGP – 1

Blog dost – It’s 22nd of March!!! Yeah right what is special about it?
Blog dost – It isss 22nd of March!!! Ohk no more drama. I am super excited and high on life today. Something inside me making me to dance, jump, enjoiii!

We have completed term III and that brings down the curtain as PGP – 1. Although the biggest viva of the year is yet to take place! And after that each one of us will have our first face off in corporate as mini MBA’s.

It makes me feel nostalgic for many reasons. We as a batch stood one for 10 months. We (my class) stood as the most notorious class (sec C). We have sailed through half the sea smiling, crying, making others laugh or furious. Sometimes we got applauded, sometimes we got screwed. We supported each other at all point. We showed to others in exam in the name of friendship, we cheated in the name of competition. While song “ishq- risk” took off with formation of couples in 1st trimester, 2nd saw the toll of subjects relieved through Sadda Ahq aithe rakh. Close to finish line it’s “Tenu mai love karda”!!! And soon the batch of 240 shall be divided on grounds of majors and minors. Finance groups would be hanging in rooms, marketing on roads, HR in mid -way:)

In the MBA journey Pgp-1 is defined as the nascent stage. You are still fresh to what a MBA is ought to do. Suddenly as you embark on becoming pgp – 2, the expectations take a leap. A miracle has to take place in your behaviour, knowledge and maturity. First we are comforted saying you’ll learn slowly, you all are still new and will take time to get adjusted. Suddenly everything fades off. The next potential batch is on its way. And I can relate how it was for me last year. Just a piece of advice, in case any of the MBA aspirants get to read this – It’s just the beginning of a Very long journey. Getting into the best of B-schools is dream of many. But it’ll only be an add – on in the huge career profile of yours and not the deciding factor life- long. It’ll fetch just the first job, rest is the potential. So do not worry if you could not make it to your dream college – I too did not. And still I can say I did not lose anything.

Well getting back to the story of 22nd – Every three months since june, our term exams have been scheduled on 19th, 20th and 21st – Sept, then dec and now march. So every 21st we left the campus and were home on 22nd. But it’s not the same this time. It’ll take us more to get back home. And few might not be able to before internship! Keeping fingers crossed and hoping I am not one of them.

We ended our last day as PGP – 1 in sec C with an awesome photo shoot and below are few glimpses of the journey so far -

A Geek?

Still wide awake at 11:45pm, i find pleasure in taking this up as last part of my long day's activities before i call it off. 

I woke up with an alarm ringing at 6:30 am. Did the morning chores by 7 am, picked up few photocopies, my laptop, a marker, a notebook, filled the bottle with water and slipped into my bed just to be comfortable while studying. I started flipping through the pages and suddenly things started looking interesting. The subjects are isn’t that bad. It’ s true I have no other option but to study just before the exams, but liking to study is a different feeling. Yes, I feel like a geek and I am liking to be feeling so ..:)

What to do..:):):)

 With the bed scattered with soft toys, books, marker, pens, laptop – I feel like being home but with the exception of rounds of noises to clear the bed (Maaa). As they say, a smile after shedding tears is more pleasing, a success after facing a failure gives more satisfaction. Similarly a day of studying after weeks of parties, farewell, few ****ed up presentations and disgusting encounters is filling in the vacuum of discontent.

Waiting for a few things to happen quicklyJ will keep updating you all! 

P.S: “Iamvijender” is going to love this and will have lots to sayJ

I was out of place.....

Goa, beaches and its sand always tempted me to attend one of parties marked with Goa specialty.  I attended one and two and more and more. While everyone around cheered with glasses of drink in their hands, i was alone most of the times sitting on the beach. Sometimes moon and stars accompanied me, sometimes just the sound of waves or sometimes even a phone call. Sitting on the beach i reflected on one of the discussions with friends where i had mentioned of attending and enjoying these kind of parties. 

It's Party Time!
I Prefer this..:)

 It has often happened. The things i loved from a distance disappointed me with a closer look. Be it food, clothes, guys or now parties. Until stepping into Goa, i was a girl for whom day ended at 10:30-11 pm. Enjoyment meant    all friends sitting in a place and talking heart out or some fun filed group assignment. It did include sometimes a well thought night out for which a week's preparation would be needed to convince parents followed by at whose place the night out shall happen. We did go out early breakfast but never for a late night ride. That was not a vacuum. I did that with my brother and it had its own charm. 

Here parties are different. On the way to venue, you find instances which you have observed only in the movie. In the party, people are high and waiting for others to get high and later justify their actions in the name of insanity/ out of mind behavior. May i ask these people do they have any sense of responsibility towards if not others at least themselves. I am not against smoking or drinking. You live in a democratic country and you have all rights to take decisions.  But atleast check on your limits. Agreed, first time to check your capacity, the mistake is considered a mistake. Even after knowing your threshold, you cross it voluntarily and create trouble for others, i consider it to be a breach of law. 

 Although i might be smiling around in the best outfit. A person who can read my eyes can make it out easily that i am feeling out of place..:)

But the best of memories and the cherishable time reminds me of Jinal's room and our never ending discussions..:) **Hugs** - Wish you all a belated Happy Women's day. We are together the best..:)
