Yesterday, I asked my friend for some advice. And though he said some wise words, all I could feel was -“Damn. That’s the vaguest thing I’ve ever heard” I gulped down a cup of coffee to get into the zone and decided to make a framework for giving better advice. So here I present myContinue reading “How to give a better Advise?”

Toughest job in the world?
Afternoon. 2.30 PM. Intense struggle to focus on work and combat against sleep after a heavy lunch, only to be broken by an annoying phone call – a sales call.“Sir, I guess you should buy our product, xyz.” A tepid request.“But I don’t need it”“But sir…..” a founder pitching me her new product, which transpires me backContinue reading “Toughest job in the world?”
How to maintain your productivity in this pandemic – 3C’s of WFH!
To be honest, when I was in office, I’d always think, that working from home would be much better than coming to office everyday. No need to pull myself out of that dreamy sleep and slip into those formals, keeping an eye on the clock all the time. No last minute rush to book anContinue reading “How to maintain your productivity in this pandemic – 3C’s of WFH!”
How to know a job or company is ideal for you – The PWC framework!
“Hello Abhishek, I hope I didn’t disturb you.” The half-slept, half-awaken me took some time to recognize that voice on the call, as it broke my sweet sleep, with my bed being the back seat of my Uber. A sudden speed-breaker helped me to get back to my senses, and I looked at my phonesContinue reading “How to know a job or company is ideal for you – The PWC framework!”
Not a PPO? Not a problem (what to do in the second year of your MBA)!
“Hey Siri, read my notifications” I was just easing in my apartment, as I commanded my newly enslaved voice assistant to serve me (and this sounds so creepy)!“You have 7 new messages from a-girls-name-you-need-not-know” As Siri announced this, my heart skipped a bit. I threw my suit on the chair, left my tie half loosenedContinue reading “Not a PPO? Not a problem (what to do in the second year of your MBA)!”
Dear Serene Streets
A letter to the streets of IIM Bangalore -just to remember the unusual bond I shared with them 🙂
Every Soul Suffers For A Reason
A night is the best to have some deep and meaningful conversations. A night gives you a serene and calm environment to explore the ocean of another person’s mind without being disturbed by anyone and anything. All you can do is dive in that ocean and reach it’s depth (and oxygen is not a necessityContinue reading “Every Soul Suffers For A Reason”
Masala Chai (or How I Ruined My Chances to Get Into IIM Lucknow)
It was not my fault.Or maybe, it was completely my fault. The day wasn’t much pleasant, but it wasn’t going bad as well. I had an easy WAT topic, and I believe I had created a good piece of essay. And I had almost had a good interview. But…..Yes, I couldn’t control myself. I just couldn’t.Continue reading “Masala Chai (or How I Ruined My Chances to Get Into IIM Lucknow)”
How I fought 3 dragons and still survived (or the story of my IIM Bangalore Interview)
Background: I failed to score well in CAT 2015. I had converted a new and baby IIMs, but decided to not join them. Also, I had not taken any placement from my college’s placement process, as I wanted to start something of my own. I had tried to convert my final year engineering project intoContinue reading “How I fought 3 dragons and still survived (or the story of my IIM Bangalore Interview)”
Its All About The Attitude…
Mumbai is hot (literally). And it feels even hotter when you are wearing a suit. Wear a tie if you want to add a pinch of suffocation. If you will add the tremendous amount of sweat and the humongous pressure of an IIM Lucknow interview, then I guess you’ll get a recipe to make aContinue reading “Its All About The Attitude…”
