Media and IIMA

The 1.44 crore salary story is a perfect example of CreativeET!

A complete lie, that can be exposed without recourse to much else than common sense! I wonder how low these media people will stoop to to sell a few more newspapers. A comment on that article on the ET website has been blocked. IIMA’s official statement regarding this matter was never carried in any newspaper (and ET completely ignored it). Their justification of “Right to Information” is pure BULLSHIT! People have the “right to CORRECT information”.

One reason I dropped EPETMC course in term 6: it had Ethics and Mass Communication in the same line. The experiences I had as coordinator of Media Relations means I have lost respect for most of the reporters.

More on life at the end of my IIMA stay on this blog later. Sort of getting senti (but then I started getting senti at the beginning of term 5 itself!)

These are my personal views and not that of IIMA or the Media Cell on campus. They do work to improve relations with the media and help project the best image of IIMA.


1 billion for 1 billion

Samrat made a presentation on the World Food Programme in the Managerial Communications class and it was impressive.

I would like to think they are doing good work, work that actually makes a difference.

I have a link on the sidebar where sponsors give money if you perform some activities.

I’d much rather feed real people than digital ones on Farmville.

Also, check out World Food Programme.

Placements at IIMA

310 students, 4 days…a hell of an effort by the Placecom.
Congratulations to the PGP1s and to Placecom. IIMA placement committee has been ranked Numero Uno by the Economist and it is entirely deserved.

4 night outs for me, working in stationery…a better idea of how far I can go without breaking down. I have no intention of doing this any time soon again.

Got quoted in TOI and had people calling up to congratulate. It probably wasn’t as big a thing as they thought it might be. I was mentioned in one of the press reports that were sent out. It was a nice feeling nonetheless. Thank you all!!

Food for thought…

Read these words while surfing the net today… 

But he was at Wharton now, where perception is reality, return on investment is all that counts, and the only fires worth putting out are the sparks inside ourselves.

Can/should we replace Wharton by WIMWI?

It’s getting hot in here!

Today the mercury touched 37 degrees C. In the next 4 days, Google say it’ll touch 38.

I still have a month to spend as a fachcha. Lots of work to do as well, lots of reports to write…not so many quizzes. Maybe IIMA will teach us what ‘burn out’ is in more ways than one.

EOS1 ( End of slot 1)

This blog was meant to be a ‘diary’ of sorts for my days in WIMWI…and the rate at which I write it will tell you what kind of work they expect out of us.
Today we had the last classes of the first slot. Midsems from Monday. This slot has screamed past me and I am living on the hope that I have caught something while it has gone.
Its been a complete change from the ‘relaxed’ lifestyle at IISc…infact the only time I have had good coffee is when I went home a couple of times ( yeah…I managed that!!).
The tuchchas (thats what the seniors are called) say this was the easy part and the pressure will really mount from the next slot. Everytime they talk I can hear them go Muggo Fachchon Muggo silently.
I am down to an average of 5 hrs of sleep a day. So much has changed since I left IISc abt 6 weeks ago…my lingo has gone from spikes and splines, DWT and CWT to WAC and ME, FRA and ID to DC++ and DBab.
By the end of this year I guess I will agree with Peter Robinson when he says “If someone told me I would have to repeat first year at B-school, I’d do just one thing. Get on my knees and beg for mercy!”
I knew what I was getting myself into and I intend to make full use of the opportunities WIMWI presents. I will never complain about the workload no matter how inhuman it gets…and I will try to update this blog as frequently as I can.
