Winds of thought

Just back from 1 week residential training at Rennaisance ↓ .....

A full week's training ... with a mixed group of KPMG consultants from Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore ... all ages, all enthnics, all qualifications (and so all designations in KPMG) ... 'twas fun - learnt a lot, revised some of my MBA stuff and found how to use it in actual business etc etc ... lots of case studies and mock interviews - an exciting week all in all .... will be leaving for home in about 2 hours time (Indian Airlines Flight for 6.30 AM) ...
Today is a night out after a long time ... spent some time in NITIE writing software to be taken home ... and spent the rest reading blogs (we have net at home now :D ) ... read evam's blog after a long time - while reading the poems and about 'evam Indrajit' - the play ... and thoughts that I had just after watching the play, came back to me .. also inspired by the Poems on evam-blog here is a gush of wind from my side . . . . . .
One Works for a living,
Or one lives to work?
Amal, Vimal, Kamal ...
All work to make a living,
But what do they live for?

Mindless chores ?
Or efforts to make a career
Career? Is it your life?
Or a social sore!

Indrajit lives to dream . . .
But is a dream worth living for?
Dreams shatterred ...
Crushed and battered ...
Do they remain as before?
Are Dreams worth living for?

Run away .... become a loser?
Indrajit cannot win ...
So says the writer
But is he Indrajit or Nirmal????
Is choice an illusion or real?

How will travel industry transform post-Covid

Unlike philosophers, journalists and teenagers, the world of entrepreneurship does not permit the luxury of gazing into a crystal ball to predict the future. An entrepreneur’s world is instead made of MVPs (Minimum Viable Product), A/B Tests, launching products, features or services and gauging / measuring their reception in the market to arrive at verifiable truths which can drive the business forward. Which is why I have never written about my musings or hypothesis about travel industry – we usually either seek customer feedback or launch an MVPised version and gather market feedback. However, with Covid-19 travel bans across the globe, the industry is currently stuck – while a lot of industry reports and journalistic conjectures are out, there’s no definitive answer to the way forward. Besides there is no way to test your hypothesis since even the traveller does not know what they will do when skies open. So, I decided to don my blogger hat and take the luxury of crystal gazing

Experienced vs. Freshers – an MBA perspective

Shubham and me compiled and created an article during our first year of MBA. It was never published, nevertheless MBA aspirants will find it very useful. Publishing it online for the same purpose. However, Shubham and myself claim a copyright on the text .... and of course very many thanks to all our freinds whose views have helped us compile the article. Experienced vs. Freshers – an MBA perspective By Nikhil Kulkarni, KPMG Shubham Choudhury, Infosys PGDIM- X, NITIE, Mumbai Ashita Mittal was placed during her final year in engineering college with a leading software firm. But she never wanted to be another brick in the wall. She wanted to differentiate herself from other graduates who start their career at the lowest rung of organizational hierarchy. MBA was a natural choice for her. On the other side is Shailesh Dhawla, who worked as a software engineer with a leading software consultancy firm for 3 years. He started his job with some ends in mind, like working with a known c

Ekla Chalo re

Watched "Bose- The forgotten Hero" on Saturday. Gem of a movie and probably the best of Shyam Benegal. Subhash Chandra Bose has always been an inspiring character in the history for the youth. This post however is not about the movie, its about the lead song 'Tanha Rahee' which is based on the poem 'Ekla Chalo Re' by Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore. I had pasted the English translation of this poem on my blog earlier. However, yesterday I found the original bengali text of the poem and found that the meaning in the above translation was not exact. So I have endeavourer (with the help of Shubham ) to re-translate it into English and Hindi by myself. Here is the output of my work: Bengali Jodi Tor Dak Soone Keu Na Asse Tobe Ekla Chalo re Ekla Chalo Ekla Chalo Ekla Chalore Jodi Keu Katha Na Kai Ore Ore O Abhaga Jodi Sabai Thake Mukh Firae Sabai Kare Bhay Tabe Paran Khule O Tui Mukh Fute Tor Maner
