Let the B Begin!

B-schools mean business! What better lesson can one learn on the first day at IIMK! I hadn’t even joined college and here I was submitting assignments and following deadlines. And the very first day – the registration day – was a clear indicator of how things worked here. The day had a proper itinerary from morning to night. Talk about an organized and systematic life!

Belling the Evasive CAT – Mera Version

The feeling after getting into an IIM is amazing. You become an instant celebrity. “What are you doing now beta?” “I got into IIM” “WOW!”(With a look of amazement & admiration) And finally, people know where the college is! No need to go all – “NITK Surathkal – Arre! Surat nahin, SURATHKAL, Mangalore ke paas. Arre! Bangalore nahi, MANGALORE!” The worst people can do now is mishear “IIM Calicut” as “IIM Calcutta”. And I don’t mind taking that 😛

“How did you do it?” That’s what everyone wants to know. Continue reading Belling the Evasive CAT – Mera Version

(The rhythmic sound of the train)

The first feeling is that of being watched, silently by many hidden forces. They have their stories to tell, if only one would care to listen to them.

Ranipuram & Bekal Fort, Kerala

Kerala is a really beautiful place in terms of natural beauty. You get to see pristine beaches, misty mountains, valleys, forests and backwaters – everything in that tiny strip of land along the south Indian coastline! I’m sure you’d have heard of Alappuzha, Fort Kochi and Munnar. But this time, I’m going to take you to two lesser known but beautiful places – Ranipuram and Bekal Fort in the northern district of Kasargod in Kerala.

Hanumangundi falls, Karnataka

The first really exciting thing to happen in the fourth semester of engineering was the trip to Hanumangundi Falls. It was only the first weekend back from home and I was expecting a quiet one. However it wasn’t to be.
