This post marks the beginning of a new section on GEO 12.97°N 77.56°E called “The G Cam” – a lens on Nature’s beauty through Goutham’s DSC-H2. The first collection comes from his recent trek to Ballala Rayana Durga in the Kuduremukha mountain ranges of Karnataka. This album is accompanied by a special message from Goutham […]
“An assignment a day keeps the blogger in you away!” Yep. I made that one up. It summarizes why I have temporarily disappeared from blogging/commenting. Consider what I have been through the past week: Business Strategy Group Work 1 International Business Assignment 1 Cost Accounting Group Work 1 Business Strategy Group Work 2 Internation Business […]

SP Jain has a vast and meaningful collection in it’s library. You can find the whole gamut of management books and text books, non-management books, business magazines, and general magazines (a wide variety). You also get to read a whole bunch of Mumbai newspapers (if you can find the time). I have discovered magazines, which […]
[This post should make our good old Notary and Anoop sit up and take notice. I miss our badminton days guys.] Our campus is strategically located – in Andheri (West). There’s everything you might possibly require, close by. Malls, multiplexes, temples, restaurants, and bazaars, you name it and it’s there. There’s even the humongous Andheri […]

The subjects in this module include: Decision Analysis and Simulation Negotiation Skills Business Law Business Environment Business Strategy International Business Leadership and Change Management Costing Whew! Eight subjects and a number of […]
You certainly don’t feel that way after you have just written four exams in two days with a 3-hour exam on the nuances of Corporate Finance for dessert. Whew! I am glad that the past two days are over. In fact, I am glad that the past two weeks are over. They were full of […]
Nah. It’s not what you are thinking. :-) It’s just a neat little restaurant that serves some yummy food in a quiet ambiance. I had been there, with Vinayak, yesterday night celebrating the end of the “Functional Management” term. Things are not hunky-dory though. The “General Management” module starts from tomorrow! In the interim one-day […]
Butter and margarine have almost the same total fat and calories, about 81% fat and 729 calories per 100 grams and both should be used in small quantities. Margarine is made from assorted vegetable oils that have been heated to extremely high temperatures (a process known as hydrogenation) during which trans- fatty acids are formed. […]
What should you think when one of your closest friends sends you an SMS that reads: “Y dont you join ur man, it will be great.”? Wow! What was that again? The moment of horror vanishes, the moment you realize that a typo has occurred. In this case “ur” should have been “us.” The true […]
I don’t have any direct experience. I would love to hear your thoughts on the truth/falsity of this topic.
The ubiquitous “bhaiya” is back again. In a saner world, “Bhaiya, ek cutting dena” would mean “Bother, give me a hair-cut.” But, we are talking about Mumbai. Sanity is what you won’t find here – no matter how hard you look. Therefore, the above statement actually means, “Brother, give me half a cup of tea.” […]
Taken with Goutham’s brand-new Sony DSC H2. My first reaction: MESMERIZED. Who wouldn’t be?
If “Fanaa” was released in Kannada and Jaggesh played Amir’s role then guess what would be the dialog? Nan usiru nin hrudayadalli touching aagli, Nanna praana nin preetiyalli yakkutthogli. Hilarious. Thanks to Sudhir for this creative piece. PS: A translation into English wouldn’t do justice!
“Kargil – From Surprise to Victory” is one book you’ve got to read from cover to cover. It’s almost impossible to put down this book once you have started reading it. It’s all about the Kargil War of 1999 and it’s authored by General V.P. Malik, who was the Chief of Army Staff during that […]
Caught this wandering beauty on camera on the way to college, while lugging a heavy backpack and an umbrella in one hand trying to fend off the incessant rains. Quite a good job, I say.
The flooded path from our college back to the hostel. The lake – mentioned in the previous post – is to the left. The packet clutched tightly in my hand contains emergency rations (to be used in case we are cut-off from the rest of humanity). It really appeared as if the Indian Air Force […]
Scenes from our college hostel. Believe it or not, there even was a sofa floating by on Igdah Road (this road, or what’s left of it, exists in between the two compound walls in the top right image [Row 1, Column 2]). The huge property, worth several crores, on the far side belongs to SBI. […]
Here’s something that you, as a customer of the banking industry, SHOULD read – The Code of Bankâ€™s Commitment to Customers.
