Life these days...


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Flash Back: 24-05-2007

Mr. K: "Why change now if you are planning to do full time MBA. Quit from here and join the college when you have to."

Me: Yea true. But you know. It had got so monotonous. Wouldn't have changed ...... but.

That was my penultimate day in HP and I was speaking to my Practice head.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sometime in the June 2007, when the temperature only got hot and hotter in Delhi.

Me: Does the role Associate Consultant mandate me to do all this.
Mr. S: Yes, What do you think ??

Me: Well business analysis is something i like to do.
Mr. S: Sanjaya, do you have an MBA?

Me: I don't, but i intend to have one and also have started planning for it.
Mr. S: What happened, wrong mapping of skill sets or something like that?

Me: I don't know about that, but this is not something i like to do.
Mr. S: Sanjaya, don't worry I will send you to Bangalore. Don't think about it too much !

My discussion with my TM in Wipro.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
February 10th 2008, Hyderabad.

Interviewer 1 on seeing my profile: Now, you have almost 4 years of experience in IT and you are doing pretty well. Then why crossover now?
Me: Sir, doing an MBA after putting in some quality years at work has always been my goal.

Interviewer1: But you know, not everyone maybe paying you the amount you expect.
Me: Sir, its not only about money, its about the roles i would be playing post my MBA. Business Analysis and Research are the fields I would see myself growing in, and later find the entrepreneur streak in me. Hence MBA is the right impetus for me at this stage of my career.

Interveiwer1: :-)

Interviewer2: So what are your hobbies?
Me: Reading, travelling, playing etc.

Interviewer2: Which is your latest read?
Me: Fountainhead, now with Atlas Shrugged by Ayn rand.

Interviewer2: So you have a blog?
Me: Yes, I do.

Interviewer2: What is it called?
Me: metalbook.blogspot.com

Interviewer2: Why is it called so?
Me: During those days I used to workout often.

Interviewer2: :-)

Same day evening got to know that I was through to Icfai Business School, Bangalore.
Those were mixed emotions as i recall. Sorrow of not having made to Hyderabad and Joys to know about parents feeling it great that I would be based out of Bangalore.

On the hindsight, I am now too.

March 17th 2008, Bangalore

This is to bring to your kind notice that I would like to tender resignation from my duties effective today. I intend to pursue my higher studies and hence wish to be relieved from my duties on April 18th 2008 with this considered as my last working day in Wipro.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Enough Said, I am waiting for May 1st, when I will be a student all over again

Wish me luck, Sanju
