Life @ AIM - K


Just Chillll!!!!!!!!!

What a scenario. Everybody is getting ready to take the exams head on. All of them except those cool(or should i say Fools) guys who just depend on last minute prepration. But that is their style of handling the pressure of examinations. All work and no play makes a person less productive so remember to take some time out of the busy schedule and play(as some really do).

Best of luck guys!

Battlefield

Right now i'm coming from battle field not that kind of battle field which means -
  • -An area where a battle is fought
    -A sphere of contention

but the field where we MBA guys fight - Group discussion and PI, we fight for our placement when ever a good company comes then, our conference hall turns battle ground, till now i fought two battles one for TATA Rayerson and today for HCL Technologies.

Today in GD we had different groups, and no. of soldiers were 10 in each group, my group was D and my no. was D-2, while waiting for our chance I felt that i'm waiting for some kind of war and going for it, 1st our group members made many plans before entering into the field, that we will discuss properly in organise way and don't create any mess but those guys who planned as friendly fighter later they turned into our enimies from hell they were fighting like d.... well dog is not the right word but still they were fighting like hell, like this is there last chance etc.... through out the discussion i felt that i'm in the wrong place b'coz the topic what we got was abstract and we could make out some thing creative out of but our group memebers/soldiers took it in wrong direction from Iraq war to India-pakistan relationship, the topic was so simple and nice - dead yesterday, unborn tomorrow which means what ever we have is today.
The GD is still going on, different battle teams are getting ready for it to fight till the last breath of their life after that we have the main fight which we fight individually with HR team of Companies.

Choolaaayyyyy!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is a humble request to all those in the mess Comittee to improve the taste of the food being served in the mess. Thfe food's quality is really in a MESS. The only thing that is served well is th choola-Bhatura that too ocossionally. The mess staff should vary the composition of ingredients so that the taste changes.
All u guys out there are requested to bring the matter to light so that atleast we get food with different taste.

Won, Lost and Learned

As I always say there is no failure only learnings or we can say we never loose only learn something good out of it.

We had our annual inter-college fest – Inferno this weekend. I had participated in two events one in marketing and the other in Web designing. My marketing team members were Nidhi, Joydeep, Poonam & I, and Web designing team member were Naveen & I.

We spent about 4hrs. on the marketing case study and 40 minutes in Web designing. We bagged the 1st. position in marketing and 3rd. position in Web designing. This achievement was not at all possible without the help of my group members. But since I love to make website and it is also my hobby i really wanted to win the Web designing event, and as far as my feedback about both the events goes, i think i used my grey matter more in the f Web designing event, but unfortunately the two judge out of three being a marketing person and software designer were incompetent to understand the technical aspects which my group has presented and awarded the others as winners.

What i hated is not losing but the fact that i lost the 1st position because the judge could not look beyond his own fixed ideas and accept something new which even the worlds best Web designers would acknowledge.

Anyway later I told myself that, one should not always win, because until you don’t lose once in a while you don’t understand the value of winning. That really helped me to calm down and move on.

Not to mention that on Friday I and 5 of my friends had gone out to celebrate the Rs.1400 and gift coupons we got as prize money for the 1st. position. We had a nice time outside, i really loved those mutton briyani and chicken bharta…
Anyways the fest is over and now there are more important things to do, like our 3rd semester exams and our placements.

There is no mistakes, only learnings

I like web designing and i love to develop WebPages, even though I haven’t joined any institute for it, today we'd got website designing competition (online Dot Com) in our institute as part B'school festival - Inferno, My partner + very good friend of mine, Naveen Sharma we both participated, we got one case study upon which we had to develop one site in 1 hour 15 minutes, Since i'm very much comfortable with windows Xp i demanded PC with XP but they denied to provide even though we were the first group(may be they don't like the concept of 1st come 1st serve), I don't like to make any excuses but i would like to write truth what exactly went - the kind of PC we got was pathetic in 15 minutes it get hanged for 15 times, There was'nt any thumb view of pictures option some how file got corrupted so it took us 35 min to search right kind picture out of more than 200 pictures, we didn’t allowed to use Adobe photoshop by which i give a lots of effects to pictures like I did with the banners and posters of B'school fest Inferno and many more things.... so that i got so pissed off and furious, I just revolt against organiser of abacus club which again wasted my 15 minutes. 1st i decided that i won't participate coz if i can't give my best shot then what is the use participation but later my partner tried to pacify me. later I told one thing to myself that if you get all kind of luxury + etc.... Then how can you judge your abilities, the best designer is that person who can take out best things from worse situation + so many constraints.


Then we both started building website and amazingly it was really beautiful and very simple, the best thing about the website was attracting appearance, colour combination, consistency, our logo, home page, etc..

Here i'm not saying that we had created the perfect site -
-=- we did many mistakes like we didn't made questionnaire page due to time constaraints
-=- Judges were stick to order billing form which was very lengthy (but here i would like to mention one thing is that if you go through any site like eBay, alibaba.com etc who deals with B-B/B-C/C-C transaction you will find that they will make you fill up 5-6 pages of form which is very lengthy as compared to our 1 page billing form )

another mistake that i would like to mention, from which i had learned a lots of things in my MBA life thatt no matter how good is your product if you can't present it properly then you can't sell it, After all Jo dikhta hai woh Bikta hai (you buy only those things which you can see)

Almost all the contestants had made there website like...(no comments) except one which stood 1st whom i thought will stand second after us, i don't like to talk about the other contestants coz i did'nt liked any of them, they didn’t had any consistent theme, almost all of them didn’t made questionnaire except one for which judges screwed us, they forgot vital information which is very essential while making any transaction (i know b'coz i did some homework about it last night), and many more things....

Now the question is whether we won or not, if you ask this question to judges they will say NO......
If you asked this question with us then we'll say we'd made best website from others and we'd won coz we'd learned many things from this contest

There is no mistakes, only learning’s
Never take anything for granted
Never underestimate yourself and others too
How to work in constraints and lack of resources
Belive in yourself even results don't favor you
Simple is the best

Later all the winners and contestants were saying that you'd made best website, even they din't had any idea what judges saw in their site if you ask me - they did many major mistakes if your ask with any professional website designer you'll come to know. Even you can tell who won just compare these two sites http://www.frontech.com/ and http://www.dell.com/ or http://www.apple.com/

In these last lines i would like to mention that winning and loosing was not the issue which bothered only thing that i didn’t like was i hurt the expectations of my batch mates who thinks that I’m the best web designer i don't know why... but i would like to say them that if you always win that you won't care about your mistakes but if you loose then you will take care of your mistakes and try to improve your self which is the essence of our life.


Update-=-13.11.05:
last night i tried to interrogate what went wrong but I didn’t found any solid reasons but later I found it, as I use to say there are three things which brings you down to the earth that is greed, lust and anger and yesterday I was driven by greed and anger which pulls me down from goodness mode to passion mode and later to the ignorance mode.

Great Show!!!!


I have been taking part in inferno for two years in a row and am amazed by how much it teaches me everytime.Last year since other colleges could not participate so the contest was not so competitive and we did not know where we stood..........but this time around it was really great,the number of other colleges who gave us strong competition, the sponsorships which we were able to bring, the way the event was managed, the number of prizes our college bagged, the whole enviornment was really, really good.Other than the serious stuff it is really nice to see that there is so much of talent amongst my batchmates and juniors........because its really easy to give presentations, work on cases, etc. but really, really difficult to go up on stage and bring a smile on the audiences face.......i really appreciate those people who have done it.On the whole i think that our Inferno 2005 was a huge success and hope it will keep on improving and do better the next time and the times to come.
