CAT Coaching

I have been an MBA aspirant for quite some time now (... actually some years now :P)
I have always been good in quant, logic, verbal... you name it, i have nailed it! No.. seriously! :)
But I don't know what happens to me in the test..I almost always miss the bus :'(
I have always been this friend who helps others with their studies but who ends up getting the lowest marks in the exam.

Success in any competitive exam is usually determined by 4 factors :
  • Your level of preparation
  • The methods that you use to solve questions - the method you use determines the time you take to solve questions which in turn determines the total number of problems you end up solving which determines how much you score.
  • The level of your stress on the day of your exam and during the exam
  • Luck... which you obviously cannot do anything about.
But you know what they say..? "luck favours those who help themselves" .. hope you get the cue :)

Till recently, i was quite clueless as to what was going wrong with my preparation ?!
Then I came across a few videos by Prof. Ravi Handa on YouTube.. n i realized i have been solving sums using methods which took a long time to solve. You just need to search for Handa's channel 'handakafunda' on YouTube  to find out more about his techniques. 
He has recently launched an online course on CAT/MBA exam preparation which he is offering at a fraction of what others charge. Seems quite promising coz theres even a 100% money-back guarantee (from the vendor - WizIQ).
Heres the link of the course- CAT Coaching

I am taking this course... Are you?

That Strange Feeling Called 'a Crush' ...

Hey friends... this article had been lying at the bottom of my closet for quite sometime now... Hope you like it :)

I was just wondering the other day when you sort of fall for someone, why its called a crush? The dictionary meaning of the word crush is ‘pressed with violence so as to break, bruise or crumple’. I was thinking when you have a crush, are you supposed to break his bones, bruise his heart or is it because you land up crushing his bank balance & crumple all his feelings?! On the contrary, crush is associated with the beautiful feeling of love or more precisely, when you are on the verge of falling in love with someone, your friends tell you that “you are having a crush on someone”. I spoke to a few friends of mine who are a bit experienced in this matter…. nevertheless, we could not figure out why its called a crush!

A crush is someone who gets you all excited, thereby brightening up your face immediately. He brings a smile to your face when you are feeling low and adds a sparkle to your eyes.

You know you are having a crush on someone when your eyes are eagerly waiting someone’s arrival & after you are gifted by his glance, you feel like jumping with joy and you are actually smiling at the walls or at the ceiling. It’s like entering paradise after a sad old empty life.

Although when somebody enters into an engineering college with such a feeling the situation kind of turns chaotic. What engineering actually does to this sweet crazy little feeling is what I would like to share. One can divide the semester into three periods.

# The first period is like living in heaven. You look forward to each day and hope that it is better than the previous one. You simply roam around with the thoughts of him.

# The second one can be called the transition period, when u realize that things are a bit out of place. In the sense that your classmates are busy with their college work & you still can’t stop admiring the greenery around you or staring at the sky.
You feel that what you are feeling is not what you are supposed to feel but you yet can’t stop feeling it. The sweet feeling that used to give you immense pleasure ceases to do so now.

# The last period (… the toughest one) can actually drive you crazy. You are not only loaded with assignments & submissions but also the following semester examinations. You slog reluctantly…. u crib & u cry & where is that cute feeling that you felt you are going to cherish forever...? It’s disappeared!!!
But hold it, this feeling is revived right after you have dragged yourself through your examinations & then you’re back to square one.

Hey!!! Who’s that? I think I’ll have to keep my pen down coz I saw him pass by ;)

Life goes on...

On my way back home, it just struck me that i haven't blogged for quite some time now...came home n saw the last date, it going to be 3 months since i last wrote something....but just don't find the time to pen down my ideas. miss blogging so much...often, during my long commutes and on my way back and during all the crazy trips here n there, i feel the need to just pick up a pen and paper and start writing........but always find myself wanting n waiting for a decent notepad/diary to write on...but my bag is already too full to allow for any space for my neat and thick diary.....and i am quite fussy about that....its so since childhood...always wanted the cleanest slate...even to scribble n doodle ..old habits die hard! anyway, the other day, i did pull out my office organizer to scribble something on...but the pen ditched me! :0( corked thoughts, bottled emotions, again!....

dunno why am i blogging today after a long tired n its late at night n i gotto get up early again tomorrow morning...mabbe i'm doing this just for a change. will come back again..some other time...when dunno! but for now, i shud go to'll be a big rush tomorrow again!!

There's light at the end of the road...

One of the best birthday messages i recieved this year,unfortunately sent to me by a social networking site n not any friends...was something that got me thinking...
Happy Birthday Anindita,

Why not seize the day to check out how your life is going? Rethink your errors and remember your successes, forgive yourself for your failures and take pride in your achievements. And remember that these errors, successes, failures and achievements are your story, the story of your life.
And for this reason they should all be equally valued. Without them, you would not be who you are today.
We would like to wish you lots of peace, health, happiness and, of course, lots of love.
Happy Birthday!
Best regards,"

Over the years i have lost thing quite unintentionally...and that is the ability to forgive myself for the mistakes i today's cut-throat competitive world there is no room for mistakes...everything has to be perfect....but in the process we have forgotten that we are human...that not everything can be perfect all the time...n it is by falling that we learn how to safeguard ourselves n not to fall...thats the irony of life...strange but true...
So henceforth i will try n forgive myself for all that i did to myself...
no matter what happens to us..we must never give up hope...because hope can do wonders...
We must remember that "There's always light at the end of the road..."

After all...its my story...the day i succeed...these failures are what will make my story interesting as well as inspiring...But,until then...searching for that light at the end of the road...

23rd March......Part 1

The day after tomorrow is my birthday…But the over the years I have lost the pleasure of celebrating my birthday…In the yester years birthdays were very special days meant to be celebrated with friends, a day when you went to school wearing your birthday dress, you distributed sweets among your friends and in evening you had a party with your friends who came with wonderful presents …J…hmmm…presents….;)… how much I wish I could go back to my childhood…its an altogether different matter that most of my friend claim I am still a child…hehe…good for me…I get to stay younger than others…

But nowadays birthdays have become more of a depressing affair…with the birthday comes the realization that you are now alone and all your friends have left for greener shores…that most don’t even remember its your birthday…

And then with your birthday you get a year older & you get dreadfully close to that dreaded age…”The Marriageable Age”…J All of a sudden your parents stop worrying for your education etc…and start looking for eligible guys n your already messed up life gets more unbearable…If you are an Indian girl…you must be knowing what I am talking about…

But what the hell…I still love my birthday… Whether I celebrate it or not…it’s still my day!
