Meet Balu(in his MBA days)....the narrator

My day starts at 8 in the morning and ends at 4…... again in the morning. A sleep which was legendary back in my engineering College is mysteriously missing from my dictionary here in MBA College. I have realized it the hard way that it is tough getting into a top MBA college, but tougher to get out of it. Professors start fuming and my batch mates laughing when I come out with my case analysis or try to find sense in MBA theories. Quizzes, assignments, presentations have replaced Roti, kapda, makaan from my most important things list. Though specializing in Finance apart from Marketing, Balance sheets & Cash flow statements rob me even of the precious 4 hours of sleep I get. Girls keep flocking around me only in dreams. I sometimes wonder who will pay me a fortune to manage accounts when I am hardly able to manage my monthly expenses!! Two places you can find me: either snoring away at the last bench or checking out food items at panditji’s dhaba.

Nicely done.
Though I have never been to any MBA school, I have had the sleepy experience you have mentioned in engineering school.
MBA is always touted as the dream degree u know, but nobody mentions the darker side of it. Thanks for presenting the story in a different perspective.
Also, Your style of writing is what great blogs are made up of.

Keep it up

Hello Balu.
Thats exactly the way it happens in MBA. Essentially in the initial phase, when sleep becomes more of a luxury

nice nice piece of humor ....

"Girls keep flocking around me only in my dreams."

Nice post.

One opinion....

I am really disappointed looking at the length of ur posts. I really browsed through them looking at the lenght. Was looking at the smallest post. This was the 1st one.

Thats it ...

nice humor none the less ....
P.S : Opinions are like ass holes.
Everyone has one.
