My Quotes!!

"How many mistakes God makes for every 1000000 decisions? Looking at the suffering of many good people it seems more than 3. That's why according to the quality vocabulary I think HE is NOT SIX SIGMA Compliant and process improvement measurement in heaven is need of the hour in this Christmas!! " ...

So let's do what matters most to YOU.. live every moment while you are not dead!!" ... Ahirjoy Biswas [1980 - 20??] -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- "Why somebody wish to live for 100 years to enjoy life when he can enjoy 100 lives in every moment?

The Wonder Years..

The best and most nostalgic TV series (1988-1993, US) I have ever seen. Kevin, Winnie still make me cry, sad and happy. We really miss this kind of series now a days. Truely evergreen!!! Few related links, en.wikiquote.org/wiki/The_Wonder_Years www.progressiveboink.com/archive/wonderyears.htm http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/celebritology/post/wonder-years-is-on-netflix-here-are-five-of-the-weepiest-episodes/2011/10/03/gIQAyiblIL_blog.html

During the Journey of My Life, Career Choice was so Confusing!!

Very true! When I look back at my life, it is really amusing to see how many options I had opted, but the good thing was, each path had its own reward. 1. GATE - For higher technical studies 2. DRDO - Was selected in written test and appeared for 1.5 hour interview in B'lore 3. GMAT - Got interview calls from IIMB and XLRI for 1 Year courses, was even selected in XLRI but could not take brave decision which clould have been transformed waitlisted 23 - to final list. However, the destiny was for IT and so I am here today :-),

Sin - A Poem Dedicated To AMRI Victims in Kolkata, in Dec, 2011

It was not your time... But you had to go... It was our time to be there... But we remain deaf... Just one thought.. when you shouted in pain in fire... "Oh God, what is my sin.". Whether the sin was more than us who left you helpless to die? - Ahirjoy Biswas

My XLRI Interview Experience

Just thought of posting it here also in case in future it helps somebody. The result was WL-23 and I was sure that it will convert and so it was. However didn't join the course due to several reasons - placement stats was not clear an was not sure whether ROI was justified. But again it was also true that this was the best opportunity to learn which I had given away. Not sure whether this decsion of not joining will haunt me always.

*********************************************************************************
At last My Intv experience!! It is pending for long, so finishing in haste before I go to sleep, please forgive me for the delay. ((btw.. I am an extraordinarily ordinary IT 7+, starting from secondary to GMAT, only good thing is a lot of awards for my EC).

Three professors (one lady), Jamshedpur, one fine morning...

P. So you have worked for two great companies - X and Y, how do you think those are different?
P. What was the rev of X in last Qtr?
P. Why despite of getting so many awards in X, you shifted to Y?
P. What was the difference between recesson in Country X and India?
P. What is your awarness about Indian and World history and current affairs?
Now, surprisingly next 6-8 questions were only on history and not a single CA!!!!
P. History Q - American Civil War, Indian Freedom Movement, 2nd World War, May Day etc etc (60% Hit I can say).
P. Ok now about IT - now some Technology related questions as that is my domain. Again 60% hit, few of the terms I came across for the first time!!!!).
P. What do you do in your free time? (Told Reading Books)
P. Oh great -, have you read the book 'XYZ'?
P. what are the differences between the Characters X and Y in the book, any similarity with any Indian literature?
P. How XLRI can help you to achieve your goals? (basically at last, why MBA, and no cross question this time).
P. One more Q on essays, this time a lot of strong negative logic from the profs.
THANK YOU!!!! So it ends..

25 Mins gone, to me it was Ok, was satisfied, (though as always I think it could have been better), but the same feel-good factor I had after IIMB intv too , so not hoping too much, just back to work and some browsing of pagalguy to keep the excitement alive. Thanks to you all for your help.

Moral of The Story: Before You Open Your Mouth, be honest to yourself, don't claim you know something which you don't, it seems the professors know everything under the Sun.

May the worthy get what they deserve. AMEN!

ATB to you all from the core of my heart

Deja Vu - SIT 1st Reunion

Still remember in 2003, when India lost to Australia and the hostel was deep down in frustration. After 8 years, the cycle seems to be completed- India won against Srilanka and I came back at SIT as 'Guest of Honour' on 3rd April, 2011!! In between I had 8 years of diverse experience across 4 organizations. It was real honour, things have changed so much, you can not recognize the college boundary, but SHI-UM is still there, now 3rd year hostel! Organizers had done great job considering this was the first reunion. Opening of alumni website by me was also an unique experience which I can never forget.

Here goes the pictures,

ART OF LIVING - PART-1

Finished AOL Part-1 course(25th - 27th March, and follow up on 4th Apr), really a nice experience. The breadthing techniques - Sudarshan Kriya is really very innovative - it really helps in reducing stress, increasing hapiness. Now the Sadhana should be practiced everyday with 100% commitment for desired outcome.

Libiya and UN

Libya - Gaddafi says protesters deserve to die and his son warns of a river of blood, UN, though it invaded Iraq on the slightest provocation of 'Weapon of Mass Destruction' (which was never found) now doing nothing to stop this atrocity, this is a shameless stand.
