She told me dragons did not exist and then led me to their lair !!


I am right in the middle of exams....with a couple down and 5 more to go(or like one would say in QUAKE "5 frags left") . Ever since my degree years I have found a way of making exams interesting (well to a certain extent atleast), wat i do is...I look at each paper like a cricket match and a seven paper exam like this one will be a seven match series......Then after the exam I amuse myself by looking at how the pitch played(exam hall), How the bowling attack was (Each section of the paper) etc etc.
BUWUHAHAHAHA....if you are wondering wat kind of weirdo I am, Join the club !!

A recent visit to my future employer, gave me more reasons to look forward to working in that organisation.
At every visit I have noticed that the employees from the security personnel to the topmost guys in the hierarchy are very very polite and courteous, They make you feel comfortable. Great, I thought this was something that happened only in management textbooks under the definition of "Courtesy", great to see this in real life.

What Happens to Customer Feedback Forms??

I recently had to fill in a feedback form for Manipal Hospital during a general health checkup. I just mentioned in the suggestions box that the employees should avoid arguing amongst themselves in front of patients (i
experienced this)....having done so I forgot about it.
However the very next day, The dept. incharge called me up !! and asked me the employees responsible......Thus in that ways, the hospital seems to be actually working on customer feedback.
However they would need to do more than just screaming at the employees.
After all the SERVQUAL dimension of Assurance plays a very important role in the HealthCare Service.

Me and serious...??

Two years of MBA has led me to meet so many people who have aged beyond their years........I wonder why?? I wonder why Guys/Gals in their twenties need to behave like they are 60 yrs old.
I was shocked to see so many people being so serious about their wonder stress creeps in so quick.
But one curious thing I have noticed is that people who take life too seriously, do not get the same share of luck, that the not so serious get.....Maybe theres a learning there.

The Get-together

Had a small get together at a friends place....around 15 of us were there and I realised that though our MBA class is not as closely knit as it should have been.......get-togethers are fun, simply because they are such rare occurances.


Well my exams are round the corner and I have even started off on my study holidays....unfortunately so far they are more of holidays and less of studies.

The Best Days of My life......

Oh when I look back now
That summer seemed to last forever
And if I had the choice
Ya - I'd always wanna be there
Those were the best days of my life ........

or so Bryan Adams Croons (magically i must add), but since my life is still in progress I cannot really say if college were the best days of my life or whether I will have the best in the future.......But one thing for certain, I'm planning to LIVE LIFE, KING SIZE.


Well well.....Business Ethics, 10 AM to 12Noon on Jan 20th 2005 was technically my last class in college life !! Christ College......has been my Alma Mater for 7 yrs now.
I have truly enjoyed life to the fullest here and I am now in a transition period between College and Corporate life. And to add more zing to the whole thing are the 2nd SEM exams !!
Wat can I say.....This too will pass??

Me in Dreamland ??

I seem to be floating in some sort of a dream world.......right now I have been doing nothing.....wanting to do nothing........It feels good to be able to suddenly stop and step out of the crowd.
It feels good to be able to stand away and just watch the crowd and their hectic lives whizzing past you......Soon I will have to rejoin them. but for the time being it feels good to be in pause mode while the world is in fast forward.


I was just thinking about some ad jingles that I have heard and two that have top of the mind recall are...The close up ad "KYA AAP CLOSE UP KARTEY HAI..." and the other one is the Amaron Battery ad "bolo lasts long really long....ding dong" (The one with the rabbit and the tortoise.
Hats off to the creativity invovled...I yearn for more such ads.
