THE B-SCHOOL BLISS

A shot of pain pulsed through his temples ,he sits up, startled...0H!!CHRIST...Another slogging day of workout and yoga,however,the customary shavasan which offers the rare ecstacy of sleep,carfully concealed under the so called title of stress busters...

One careless glance at the timer,HELL!!he pulls on his tracks and heads at top speed to his temple of learning,courtesy to the party outs last month,60 seconds late,he is destined to multiply his existing backlogs to a two digit numeral.

FELIX had ben an average student at a nascent B-school,that aims at propelling its way to the top shots of the reputed B-schools,in the process,he was victimised to the grilling and barbecueing thereby toughening his skin to pace with the grit and dirt of the corporate world,to survive in the world of rat race and cut throat competition.

FELIX,had been a proud descendent of the guinnea pig race that had happily inhabited a lone bush,a long way hidden from the pollutions and noise of the suburbs in centr…

PLAYING THE COP....(Part II)

The phone rang,and it was him.Mr.X.He was watching me from a distance as I had overseen and lavishly complimenting me on the efforts i had taken to make myself up..As i franticaly looked around I could just not figure out where he was talking from,he finally admitted he was a stalker and that he was not the person I had expected him to be.Before he could ask me for further forgiveness I almost implored him to make his appearance before he finally gave in...

I could almost hear my heart thumping hard on my ribs I wonder if he heard it as well.As he waded his way through,a handsome young man walked with a confidence yet an embarrased look did linger on his face which he tried in vain to hide with a broad smile.I greeted him with an artificial smile, my teeth all gritted and a handshake soo firm that he almost looked down at my hand.My first question was to what made him play this dirty prank on me,to which he answered he was fond of hearing my squeaky voice over the phone.Before I could …

PLAYING THE COP....(Part I)

The series of Nancy Drew's,Sidney Sheldon's and Sherlock Holmes had rather created a profound impact on my thrist for subtle clues and unseen circumsances,Oh!!I was more than startled to learn that they were mere fictitious characters and all that i have read were just manifesations of the writers imagination..(HELL!!)

It all started with a phone call from a long lost friend of mine.As usual my identification skills of male voices over the phone had always been disappointing,often been a laughing stock for the one on the other side,the unfortunate guy here too enjoyed gofing around,flirtatiously winning over me.To make it more clear,I shall name him Mr.X...Shrewd as he was,I have the least idea why he found me a susceptible prey he played very well, every moment , anonymously extracting information from a moron called ME!!

Days passed by and seeds of doubt started sprouting slowly and gradually.The anticlimax occured when my original friend who I had supposed to be Mr.X in disgu…

OUTBOUND REVEALATION

Contrary to the conventional ‘outbound learning’, I’d rather describe this two day venture as an ‘outbound revelation’. This revelation was a realization of the subtle truths that existed beyond our reach of reality.

If the course of the generations of life on this weird planet called earth had a rewind and pause button, WHOOSH!!!! We are now standing in what seems to be a patch of barren land, incapable of any potent source of life. At the push of a forward button, we are now in the same patch, which is now blessed in abundance with lush and greenery. The time lapse for which many of us do not know (rather didn’t bother to) lies a story of hardwork, determination , persistence and sensitivity.

When the idea of an outbound learning which is directly linked to our subject called systems thinking was put forward, it was decided that analyzing the inception, growth and development of the WOTR in Dharewadi would provide an ideal example of how the system and the various related factors woul…
