Happy Birthday!

4 Aug 2010 In: General

Wow… just 5 posts since my last birthday… that’s not something i should be proud about 🙂 What have i been doing? The year seems to have passed by really fast…

There have been loads of changes in my life both personally and professionally… some good some bad…

My parents finally moved to a new house… something i am happy and proud about… they seem to have settled and adapted to the place pretty well…

i lost two dear neighbours… i have practically grown up in their houses… Sadly i was not around when they passed away… Good bless their soul…

i have been exceptionally bad in keeping in touch with my friends… Hopefully i will be better this year…

Tonight…

21 Jul 2010 In: Poems

Tonight i shall drink
For my health stay always pink.

Tonight i shall sing
Like the bird in the spring.

Tonight i shall bow
To the almighty
And pray a path thou show.

Tonight i shall dream
My worries flow like boats in the stream.

Tonight i shall sleep
Memories of this day i shall always keep.

Handwriting Analysis? I am spooked!

10 Apr 2010 In: General

I never thought i will get my handwriting analyzed… well for one i never believed one would be able to give proper analysis just on basis how one writes… I have known Suman Kalra for a while… though we have not really interacted much i was intrigued about her profession… the other day we were talking about it and she agreed to do a free analysis of my handwriting… i was asked to write a couple of lines (no copy paste from anywhere) and sign twice…

This is what i sent her…

And this was her reply… Which spooked me completely!

To MBA or not?

12 Mar 2010 In: General

On a recent flight to Ahmedabad on my way to attend a workshop on “Managing IT Projects” at the mecca of b school’s iim-a, I had an oppurtunity to read the jan issue of Harvard Business Review Asia.

The article “the best performing ceos in the world” caught my eye. Of the 50 ceos mentioned 35 of them didn’t have a mba degree! On average the top 50 ceos increased the wealth of their shareholders by $48.2 billion.

It was found ceos who were promoted from inside the company tended to have stronger performance than those brought in from the outside.

I do have a couple of friends who have got their b school degrees and bring a lot of value on the table. Their thinking is more progressive and better equipped to deal with challenges… The question I would want to ask is how important do you think a mba degree is? Since I don’t have one it would be difficult for me to comment on this but am curious.

I shall blog about my experience soon… tilll then do drop in your views…

Cheers.
