All I Wanted To Speak About CAT!

Too much hype for MBA these days thanks to the agressive marketing efforts by the coaching institutes!

The result is : CAT aspirants tend to forget the thin line of difference between passion and hyped obsession.

Months after months are spent, personal lives are put in danger, relationships are kept on gas, job productivity is made to suffer: Just to study for one hyped exam in which all that matters is how you performed in those 120 mins. ( Now 150 minutes). The journey towards CAT becomes a drudgery ,rather than being an enjoyable picnic of like-minded aspirants.
So much of mental and physical energy is spent , and if you don't score then the end result is frustration,depression and so on...

And the cycle continues in the next year just to satisfy your egos, just to tame CAT because a stupid classmate of yours tamed it and to achieve Moksha

What people tend to forget is MBA entrance starts with CAT and NOT ends with CAT!

I am curious about the post-CAT lives of the people who spent too much efforts for clearing CAT .How did they fare in MBA academics, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities and post-MBA jobs? Just want to check whether they could put in so much of energy in post-CAT activities also or was CAT only one-off type act?

CAT season should be enjoyed. CAT is yet another exam.

That's all I wanted to speak about CAT!

One Tight Slap!

These free credit card and home loan calls have become damn irritating!

Credit Card lady (With sweetest voice) : Kya mai Mr. Anand Vaidya se baat kar sakti hoon?
AV: Wrong number, main Amitabh Bachchan bol raha hoon!

A pretty effective way for sure!

And to hell with direct marketing!!!!

1. We spend countless number of hours to decide which college to join or which test series to enroll for. And in the great Indian arranged marriage algorithm, we choose our LIFE partner in 20 minutes flat.
2. We watch matinee porn show in the morning. And in the afternnon, we burn effigees of Richard Gere.

Isn't the mentality of a conservative Indian paradoxical in itself?
