Change

One my friends just quit his job at this company (I think it's best I don't name that organization; therefore: short mother and Sun God guard rear (8) ) and is now preparing for CAT. This was a guy with real enthu for tech- he'd put an excellent AIR in GATE in third year with barely any preparation and cracked a few math-modeling contests at various techfests- and now he's become so disillusioned with the tech scene in India that he wants to go for an MBA. Another friend wanted to quit and play football, apparently. I was willing to sell my soul and study management in case the research thing hadn't worked out (it did, thankfully, and I'm going to Purdue this fall), or perhaps even sit at home and study for CAT/GATE/whatever in case I couldn't convert those calls this time.

So, yeah, work sucks.

P.S. Yeah, yeah, I know it depends on the company and all that, but whatever. I'm just pissed at these companies right now, for selling dreams and then selling short.

I think I'm perpetually in a "Everything sucks anyway." warp.

Purdue huh? Awesome. Now we all know you're going to do well there since you're already talking "fall" and all. You'll also probably eat Burritos and watch hoops games and have super fun! And many more things I don't want to spam the hell out of your comments window with.

Wow that's intense!
But do you really think you will ever really really love doing something while u're doin it?
I, speaking from experience say, live each day like its your last and try to find that litle ray of light which is definitely there somewhere, just have to look really hard. Cliched? I know but BY GOD is it true!

Long time no blog see. But, Oh we see. Congratulations on Purdue, again. But yes, I aalso do this those capitalist bastids are killing dreams thing from time to time.

When the fundamentals of life,dreams,hope,desire et al are all scratched out, nothing really matters. They don't leave you elated, they don't leave you deflated.

Equilibrium, which was a problem, now unveils solutions.

Aaaaaah! :P

Hi ,

I was reading ur blog posts and found some of them to be wow.. u write well.. Why don't you popularize it more.. ur posts on ur blog student sermons took my particular attention as some of them are interesting topics of mine too;

BTW I help out some ex-IIMA guys who with another batch mate run www.rambhai.com where you can post links to your most loved blog-posts. Rambhai was the chaiwala at IIMA and it is a site where users can themselves share links to blog posts etc and other can find and vote on them. The best make it to the homepage!

This way you can reach out to rambhai readers some of whom could become your ardent fans.. who knows.. :)

Cheers,

Extremely belated congratulations for Purdue!
Do please start blogging again...I feel like a spot (make that several bouts) of sermon-inspired mirth. Blasphemous, criminal pleasure, but pleasure nonetheless :) Besides, a whole year without sermons might corrupt the morals of us young Indians...much like the late Savita Bhabhi did!
