15th Week @ XIMB

15th Week --- 18th September to 24th September

18th September - There is complete lack of any participation of student in decding the course structure of Rural Management. Institute like IRMA (Institute of Rural Management) should be named IRDA (Institute of Rural Development); The camouflage of campus placement does not change the mentality of the faculties who push students towards NGO sector. There is call of "bottom-up development" in every rural management programs without being implemented on their own students !

The recording, identifying and acknowledgment of “every casualty of development propaganda” in a rural management programs is an idea whose time has come.

Hope, the rebel voice of mine gets a fruitful result otherwise we all know that the people who produce half a revolution, dig their own grave.

19th September - MEARS : Mischief mongers dig their own grave. Parasite, below poverty line and ungrateful are the words used with full sarcasm by Prof S P Das. But its quite reflection ours lack of clear knowledge.

There is a lot of anger over selection of candidates for Live projects for RMAX (Rural managers' Association of XIMB). Its clear that there is lot of compromise over merit. Few of us have planned to talk to seniors regarding this biased selection process. It is necessary to distinct between participatory and organizational model of RMAX. First round of talks with Shivam failed a general sense of mood of dialouge was initiated. The word 'perception' and 'sop' were

20th September - I don't notice whether it's raining or not today because I was happy for having a coffee on rainy day.I barely managed to finish FR assignment. The task of making a balance sheet of a shop no. 23 of Xavier vendor zone. I understood why no body believes the data given by government.

21st September - There was cancellation of visit to flood zone of mine and Rahul Wahi at the last moment. It was disappointment for me.

In RPLS (Rural Production & Livelihood Systems) class there was a discussion on BAIF and ideas of development by Late Dr. Manibhai Desai. BAIF Development Research Foundation is a professionally managed non-profit Public Trust, established by a noted Gandhian, Late Dr. Manibhai Desai in 1967, to promote sustainable livelihood in Rural India.

I missed the dance deliberately prevailing health reason. I don't know why but I remembered a quite good paper on management.

"Bad Management Theories are Destroying Good Management Practices" by Sumantra Ghoshal, Academy of Management Learning and Education, 2005 Vol. 4 Issue 1, pp. 75–91

22nd September - Average performance in FSA test . But a good joint venture study session with AP. Quite an easy and relaxing day.

23rd September - There was discussion on an article of economic times : Teach People to Fish in RPLS lecture. There is good debate in the class itself on the approach to see poor from market or welfare view.

I feel little low on energy as was not selected for 2nd Round of Sanguine Management Services.

24th September - A sleeping and tiring day for me. Two SRM classes back to back were highly boring. The assignment of EQ & Leadership shows my trait towards : Innovative Leadership and Strategic Leadership.

It is also remembered as a day of gift of a special book :)
