A Simple Thank you isn't enough, but still

In a way, this is very late. In a way, this is very premature. But still, I wanted to do this, so here it is. 

I got placed in Shapoorji Pallonji and Co Ltd. That too after a GD, removing all my fears about a GD. I just wanted to get placed and be done with it so that I could kick start my CAT preparations. And two of my best friends, Kumar and Swami, were a huge support through out the process. Without them, and all my other friends, I'd never have got through. [Found another very good friend that day too :) ]. Many thanks to the both of you, and also to my class TPOs, Manish and Rajul. Also, thanks to Sathappan, Kumaresh and Anand for some great support through out.

Also gave a multitude of Management Exams. NMAT (Got 233), IIFT (34.78, missed out on a call by 0.7 or so), CAT(99.27), FMS(Screwed up) and XAT(hopefully non negative). Needless to say, I went through a whole lot of ups and downs through out my preparation. Thanks to my parents for their support, the whole of Career Launcher Bhopal especially Subodh Sir and Ratnabha Sir for motivating me whenever I felt down in the dumps.

Also special thanks to two people, to whom I owe a lot, for being there for me all the time. For their small and large gestures in keeping my morale high throughout the last six months. For their company, at all points of time, whenever I felt the need to trouble them. My two best friends, Kumar and Vaishali. Thanks both of you for being there for me every time I wanted company. Also for Anand, for constantly offering advice for Vocabulary and other stuff.

Needless to say, I am missing out on many names here. Thanks to everyone else of my friends too. Krithika, Balaji, Ram Prasad, Manoj, Vineel, Prabhakaran and Naveen. Thanks guys.

And also to Geetanjali, for saying 'No other college wants to call you and get disappointed' each time I met with a reject. Thank you. That meant a lot. :)

That's about it I guess. Sorry if I missed out any names, it was unintentional :)

Makeover ..

... and hopefully more posts too. Feedback welcome, about the look of the blog.

January will give a makeover to my life, in the real sense. All results queued up. CAT, FMS, NMAT, XAT and what not. Just hoping to get a call from a decent B-school and a convert, god-willing. And Seven Point Someone is now Nine Point Someone. My return to 9, after my 10th board exam, which I guess was my last academic achievement.

After just a solitary post last year, the only way is up. And I've already posted more than last year, courtesy this and the previous post. (Junk it is, agreed, but still, something is better than nothing).

Blogger is all new. Half the features seem alien. After experiencing the vagaries of hostel internet, I've decided to remove half the unnecessary widgets on the side and hopefully, the page is faster to load too. Shocked to see an average of 40 odd hits a day for the last year, despite just one update, though most of it is for 'Shreya Ghoshal marriage' wherever that came from !!

2010 was quite a landmark year in every way. And here's ending with the hope that 2011 will be better.

Not Dead !!

Well, after a lot of deliberation, I've decided not to let this RIP.

Happy New Year 2011 and hoping I'm able to post regularly here, if at all any readers still visit this space.
