Date: Writing this just before 2 days of this decade end – 30.12.10
This year brought drastic change into my life. (Wait, I will explain what drastic is actually). I faced failure at the beginning of this year; results, tears, frustration and waited for good.
I was called for SCMHRD and came to Mumbai first time (I thought I won’t be back here when I was returning back to my hometown, but my destiny...) Interviewed by people who were among the smartest guy on this earth. They screwed me throughout the interview. Asked how the vodka is made? O Jesus! I knew nothing about it; I did a mistake to tell them ,fermentation was one among my favorite subject and now vodka did its best to titillate me. (I regret I should have a glass full of vodka before entering into interview-cum-screw-room ) rejected there.
Learning : Drink vodka, have fun.
Next went to MICA, Ahmadabad. Best college for Mass Communication in Asia.
And see, I was waiting outside of IIM Ahmadabad for catching up bus arranged by MICAians people. Watching profs going for morning walk in shorts. Pride is what I can feel on their face. No doubt, after all they are screwing best mind on this earth. With Assignment, seminar, presentation & semester exams. This is tough task throughout.
MICA – the first thing came into my mind, when I recalled MICA for the sake to write this, is color. A big colorful cloths over all auditorium; Green, Red, yellow, blue, violet, pink. Seems like rainbow theme was in mind of decorator. Cushion on stairs, not usual chair was just fabulous and gave a clue of “Out of box thinking all you require here, Guys!”Creative mind and innovative ideas – is the buzz word for MICA. Interviewers were coolest guy on this earth. Dressed in T-shirts, smiling face just not like usual characteristics of professors. They are different. MICA is different. Media, glamour, brand and party hard.
Frame Board – A picture of patient-on- Parle-G replacing glucose bottle, clearly a marvelous idea to say everything about brand-Parle-G that it is full of Glucose. There were around 200 posters like this: full of innovative ideas, reminding me every time what a wonderful creator human being is. I love it.
Learning: What you can do is doesn’t matter, what matters is what you did?? (What I did?)And finally money matters. You can not enter without cash.
Again I know outcome is futile but I don’t care. Beauty is journey not fruit. My journey is deep & slow and now I am learning to accept it warm heartily. This year is also beautiful because I am living here in Mumbai, earning on my own, leveraging my future dreams and I am independent financially.
Emotionally I am Independent too. Turbulent flow inside me will be slowly laminar, I hope! I just hope!! Still I hope!!!
O God! You blessed me with Courage & Truth, Hope you will be always inside me.
Finally Great year, Great learning, Stars are slowly falling into my hands. I will adorn those in my home. A very happy and prosperous new year to all.
