The-Ignorant in B-School

I have got a big break. I couldn't resist the temptation to share this great news with readers of this blog.

I'll be joining JBIMS , one of the best B-School in India, this academic year.

By God's grace, this is reality, not fiction :)

Middle Path

A group of men and a group of women were involved in heated debate.

Men believed - "God is a man."

Women argued - "God is a woman."

'Wise' man thought he was master of negotiations. He believed that solution for every problem can be found by taking a middle path.

Wise man made heroic entry in this fight.

Wise man suggested to the fighting groups, "God is neither man nor woman, God is somewhere in between."

His suggestion had serious conclusion. Both groups were furious. They beat the 'wise' man to death.

The wise man died on middle of the road, on the 'middle path'.

Everything But Work

I was furious, my flat was not ready and builder's reply was "Work in Progress". I decided to check whats happening at construction site.

I reached at construction site. What I saw was really unexpected.

Almost no worker was working. Some were writing letters, some were busy meeting their friends, some were playing football. Even this was not enough. Some people were busy with pundit matching their kundlies and looking photos of possible future life partners.

No one was working.

I decided to contact the supervisor at this construction site. I was shocked again. He was writing diary.

"Why no one is working? Why everyone is busy with 'other' things?" , I asked him.

Supervisor was truly shyless. He didn't answered my question, he asked, "What is your profession?"

"I am an IT professional, a Software Engineer.", I answered.

"You shouldn't be surprised. What you people do with computer and Internet, we are doing same without them. You all are hooked to personal emails, blogging, orkut, computer games and matrimonial sites. We are on the other side of digital divide, so we are just doing same in a different way." the supervisor gave me this biggest shock.

I had nothing to say. I left that place.

Bookish Leadership

I was travelling by train. I was reading a good book sitting on a window seat.

A teenager sitting opposite me was also reading a book, "Swimming Guide". I thought he was the most stupid person on earth. Can art of swimming be learnt by reading book?

I curiously asked that teenager,"Do you believe by reading this book you will learn how to swim?"

Teenager confidently replied, "Yes!! This book is written by a legendary swimmer who has won half a dozen Olympic gold medals."

This confirmed my assumption that this teenager was the most stupid person on earth.

Then I continued reading the book, "Leadership Guide", the book by a legendary CEO.
