There really weren’t that many new year resolutions to keep up in 2006. Of course, the main goal for 2006 was to successfully navigate my way through an MBA education. A broadening of my awareness, thinking, and knowledge, good grades, a job at a cool company with responsibilities and salary that exceeded my goals, seem to indicate a fair degree of success. But this is just the starting point – the tip of the iceberg. The real test is yet to begin!

Having never lived in a hostel before, I wasn’t sure how I would cope up. But Darshan has been an impeccable roommate. Thanks CIO, for putting up with all those ringing alarms, for coaching me before many a quiz, for those innumerable Infiniti trips, and for bearing me as a roommate. Actually, all my schooling (Sri Aurobindo Memorial School and Sri Kumaran Children Home) and college education (The National College, Jayanagar and BMS College of Engineering) was done close to my home. This stint in Mumbai has been a BIG learning for me.

At the start of the year, I had plans to morph this blog into an MBA related one. Somehow that plan never materialized and all you got to read was a constant rambling on a gamut of topics. But I did cross the psychological barrier of 500 posts and I have, of late, begun to post two articles a day. You did notice, didn’t you? The idea is to hit the next barrier at 1000 in double quick time. Or should I take it slow and reflect on my experiences in a B-school? You tell me.

As in the first year, I did make a truckload of friends this year too. But I haven’t been able to work on building that into relationships. [ I can almost hear G screaming at me! ;-) ] On the whole, 2006 has been quite satisfactory and I have nothing to complain about.

Next up, my resolutions for 2007. There are quite a few!
