life! in alliance.
hello and a very warm greetings to all the readers out there.
let me first apologize for such inconsistent posting schedule, i know i haven’t updated my blog in a long time, and, from a blogger’s prospective, that’s not good.
but honestly, as much as peoples missed my blog, ( based on the response i get from my old friends/readers,) i’ve missed blogging, too.
no promises yet, but i’ll try and update more often, ( probably on weekends. )
so this particular post, talks about a new turn in my life.
i’m finally in alliance business school, bangalore, and i’m proud to be associated with such a prestigious b school.
so, from where should i start?
so much to summarize and express in just few lines, is definitely a hard task, but let’s give it a try.
after 21 years, it was the time to live independently and responsibly alone in a hostel.
first time, without mom and dad, at first it seemed a fun idea, but the reality is a bit different.
they have just left bangalore 2 days ago, and i miss them.
but life, you can’t have everything with you. to move ahead, achieve success, sometimes, you have to compromise
and so i’m missing my parents, but still going strong on that subject so far.
bangalore, is a city with a relatively colder climatic conditions and evenings are awesome.
from a guy from MP, where temperature spikes up to 47C, this definitely is a heaven.
people speaks their native language a bit in campus, which, i’ve yet to figure out at all, but others are hopeful that i’ll at least be able to understand after 2 years, so i’m leaving that task on them.
when i came to alliance, tens, thousands of thoughts were running in my mind.
for me, a differently able visually challenged guy, multiply the problems you face in a totally new environment by 10.
mobility? food? presenting my prospective? communication? you name it, and i had confusions about everything.
gradually i came to know that people, who deserve alliance, came here from different part of the country, so i’m not the only 1 who doesn’t understand south indian languages! (Y) 😀
gradually, i have made a few friends here, and its pretty good when it have been only 6 days since i’ve arrived in bangalore.
i’ve so far learned to keep things at proper place, because its me who suffers if i be careless and misplace things, ( oh, can anybody tell me where i’ve lost my USB drive:(? ) 😛
the acceptance and cooperation of friends in alliance is much more then i’ve expected.
its they, who are my strength here,with whom i’m going to share my happy and sad moments for next 2 years, and for the rest of my life.
they are not many, but those who care, understand and support me, a million thanks wouldn’t be enough.
but friends don’t need thanks, so i’m taking that back. 😀
on academic side, the rigger and grilling has already started a bit, we’ve just done our first case study today.
surely things are going to be challenging, but i’ll, like always try and give my best.
i’ll be positive and won’t give up, and hopefully like every past exam, i’ll be able to ace out this PGPM program too.
food is not bad at all, infact, i’m eating in a more scheduled way here, because you don’t control the time, time controls you.
punctuality, participation and listening to hundreds of different ideas and filtering the best part out of them, is what i’ve been able to understand are the key factors of this program.
guest faculties that visits us, are the top managers and industrialists who are expert in their respective fields visits us very often, and it have been an inspiring experience so far.
there’s a lot to say about alliance, but if you really want to experience the friendliness, energy and enthusiasm of alliance, you’ve gotta be here!
to all MBA aspens, i’d suggest, consider alliance B school, it mite be turn out to be the best decision of your life.
on that note, its coffee time!
till i blog again, love, peace and harmony to all!
