80th Week@XIMB

80th Week@XIMB - 16th December to 22nd December, 2012

16th December - STM book reading session started today.

Prof Deepak Malhotra - HBS - 2012 Speech to Graduating Harvard MBA Students

17th December - STM reading session continues.

18th December - “Complacency is a part of Indian psyche and you can’t do much about it. Every time an Indian tries to be ambitious he is pulled down and that’s one of the reason why Indians don’t have the killer mentality,” Sunil Gavaskar once observed.

The fees is submitted. Yet I didn't find enough motivation to attend classes next trimester. Without a dream to chase, the soul stagnates. This has happened to many individuals here at this place. I once wanted to change the brawn environment of RM but failed miserably. This place has capacity to pull down in an institutionalized way. Neither are we great in knowledge nor have sufficient human capital in alumni database.

19th December -STM exams were over. I started studying about financial inclsion : Financial Inclusion by Extension of Banking Services – Use of Business Correspondents (BCs), Financial Literacy and Credit Counselling Centres and Financial Inclusion talk by Deputy Governor, RBI. Those who are more interested in examining their banking knowledge can give quizzes here at IIBF website.

20th December - BM guys have nailed very good jobs today. That is much talk of the town today. Always aspire, never envy. I have chosen to take career path with TINA effect - there is no alternative.

21st December - FINO aspiration dies slowly. I qualified in aptitude test but was disqualified in an HR interview. The only one reason that my batch-mates are getting job is because they had prepared much meticulously than me. They simply did not turn up and expect things to get done on past achievements. The twin crises of a shortage of jobs and a shortage of skills are hampering mine growth.

22nd December - There was a private meeting of few people with student placement committee coordinator regarding rumors of future dates of the companies visit to campus. With the batch size of 100, it will be a gargantuan achievement for placing all people in their favourite sectors. RM is not given importance by administration and Placement Coordinator at XIMB. When the placement will falters, a lot of low paying NGO's will be pushed for recruitment. I have been hoping for the last 18 months that things will be all right as opposed to wanting to make them all right. How bad will it get before it gets better?

There is a rage within each student of RM program with this careless approach. I am in right mind will never ask anybody to join this program until new campus is established. Nothing grows in the shadows of big banyan tree. Continuing to the raging voices, there is nothing more risky and volatile of all thing than a self-pitying majority. It's now is the question of identity and only partition is the solution. XIMB - BM has a big network of alumni who are spread all across the globe and have made their names in different fields. And for few exceptions, there is not much harmony between at 'professional' level between these two courses. Also majority students have habit of placing loyalty to their programs above professionalism for the sake of XIMB.

One must record history to prevent atrocities from happening again. I am finding pleasure to write this blog now. Placing a story of struggle in placement scenario is a position that goes against the dominant narrative manufactured by B Schools. It is generally believed that anything that is not read, watched or consumed with immediate gratification can't be survive for long. Even if I have to compromise on the delay in leaking out such heated debates about XIMB, I assume its worth it and will never compromise on the authenticity of every written word.
