End of college days

Hi all. returning to this blog after a long time. I guess this is my nth post announcing my return. Dont know till when it will last. The new farmville fever has gripped me. To admit something frankly I am not interested in continuing with this blog. Instead feel like strating something new. That will be on my new blog address which will be added here as well. I see that visits to this blog are now continuous and I have been getting close to 18 hits per week. Though the google adsence revenue seems static like the Great Wall of China.. The new blog would be directed towards my first love, comedy. I will try to entertain all through my writings and lets see how much I succeed. As about my status, this B School Graduate is now ready to leave the confines of school and join the corporate world as an investment banker. It feels nostalgic that the education is coming to an end and would never get back to college life. Now I am heading towards bigger goals in life and take a plunge in the rat race. I hate it but cant avoid it. Every phase in life is supposed to be enjoyed and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay out here (discounting some of the bad incidents). It was a life full of Ups and downs (more downs than ups). But "all's well that ends well" as the famous saying goes I will again rate my stay here 4.5 on a scale of 5. Thanks DMS IIT D for all the love......

The power of Perceptions

I was just flipping over my book of finance when an idea sparked in my mind and in no time, I am here, putting it down. I was thinking about perceptions. How important they are. It’s all about how you think, you look at a situation. A winner finds a solution in every problem and a loser finds a problem with every solution, as the cliché goes but it holds true. If an intern is expecting a PPO from a company, he would look for every possible signs of his Guide, and would consider them as an indication of his positive chances. On the other hand a pessimistic would always find a reason to convince him, why he will not be offered the same. When we set out to do something big, you are sure to have a majority saying “this can’t be done”, but there would be few who would give their heart and soul to make it work. It’s about how much you can hold on. Narendra Modi, the Gujraat Chief Minister had the whole party against him in the last assembly elections. They did not want him to see him victorious. But he did not give up. Fought the election all alone without any help from the center and when the party emerged victorious, the newspaper headlines read “Modi Wins Gujrat” instead of the conventional “BJP wins”. If a single man can steer his party to a landslide majority in a state like Gujraat, imagine what we all can do.

Perseverance is the word. I have seen people who are almost as adamant as “The Great wall of China” when it comes to pursuing their dreams. The journey from dreams to reality is usually completed by those who are either very lucky or have a strong will and determination backing their commitment. A journey of thousand miles begins with a single step, but there would be many who would leave this journey at 100,200,300 miles etc. And the worst are those who leave after covering over 900 miles, failing to realize how close they were to victory.

So before setting out to achieve big, see the goal, focus on it, and get on with all your might and victory will be yours.
