A parting tribute to Manipal

So as we get ready to pack up and say our byes to Manipal, i would like to sum up my life over here one last time...Here s a list of things i ll miss about Manipal (from most to least).....

1. My Classmates -Really can't take them outta here. they have an equal stake in all the fun i have had.
2. Being in the top 31 students suspended from giving the final end sem :D
3. The K block gang & the wonderful first year we had...
4. All those bike rides sitting pillion to vikas varun and prusty
5. The IE E&C gang...a gr8 learning experience
6. Working for TechTatva in 4 straight years
7. My trips to Kerela, Bekal, Yana, Gokarna, Kaup@night etc. etc.
8. The so many anna s who made life in manipal so much more easier
9. The beauty around manipal (nature wise and otherwise ;))
10. My Faculty- Some sooo gr8 and others so gr8 for having funn wid ;)
11. The always busy construction company. They worked like a BPO serving 150 nations across the globe!!!

And the list will keep going atleast for the next few days....

And here s something inspirational for all my mates in college...
The unfortunate, truly exciting thing about your life is that there is no core curriculum. The entire place is an elective. The paths are infinite and results uncertain. College is something you complete. Life is something you experience. So don't worry about your grade or the results or success. Success is defined in myriad ways, and you will find it, and people will no longer be grading you.

All these xams...ohh god

So heres me posting after a long long time.
Actually i have been busy preparing for these xams that keep popping up from somewhere or the other every now and then...

And when there aren't xams to give, there are application forms to be filled for all those institutes that teach us time management and stuff. See, here's a proof...

‘Management is the art of achieving set goals by efficiently utilizing available resources through innovation, dedication and teamwork’. As the world moves towards becoming a truly global economy, the demand for quality managers has gone up. It is with these ideas in mind that I would like to pursue an MBA from one of the most reputed colleges in India.
Coming from an engineering background, I have learnt how systems that can help change the way humans live are developed. But implementing and maintaining these systems in actual conditions is something that can only be learnt by pursuing a career in management. In the future, I see myself developing innovative solutions (both technical and managerial) that can help in the progress of our country and the world as a whole.
So, a post graduate degree in business management from FMS would not only help me understand the basics of how technology can be used to improve the lives of people around me but will also enhance my capabilities – both as an engineer and as a manager. The course structure at FMS, with its summer-training and field experience, will give me the kind of exposure that is essential to survive in the dynamic world of business today, while opening up a plethora of opportunities to implement my ideas and thoughts.

wow!!! :D
