About the theme…

The theme currently in use (“Regulus” after using some of the customization options available) looks like an answer to all the prayers really :). Thank you WordPress.com.

Update: No, not so soon Jaya :(. After solving all the existing problems, it creats a new problem. It does not display the Categories on the main or archive page (only the post pages!!). Guess I would write a feedback.

  1. Please comment on this Jaya

    AHMEDABAD: Think about an Indian Institute of Management-Ahmedabad alumnus and you conjure up the image of a corporate warrior engaged in boardroom battles.

    That’s till you meet people like Bhushan Punani, director of city-based Blind People’s Association, or social entrepreneur Vijay Mahajan.

    “Money offers pseudo comfort which never attracted me,” says Punani. And Mahajan wishes that “more IIM-A alumni would move away from the beaten path”.

    The latest issue of IIM-A’s inhouse magazine ‘Alumnus’ features 20 IIM-A alumni who took the road less travelled. These “intrepid souls”, says the magazine, put their cause above themselves by promoting livelihood for the poor, supporting the visually challenged, contributing to performing arts, sports, eco-restoration etc.

    It features the likes of Pavan Kapoor (1985 batch) who made a career in the Indian Foreign Service. “It is particularly satisfying when we are able to defend our nation’s interests against others,” he writes

    Kapoor’s job involves negotiation on behalf of the Indian government in specific WTO committees. Then there is the more famous Harsha Bhogle who lived out of his wife and batchmate Anita’s income before making it big in the world of cricket.

    “It is important to realise,” says Punani, “that the concept of management is relevant to any activity which concerns people and money.”

    It was while working on dairy development in Punjab, that Punani decided to pursue an alternative career and has established a leading disability development organisation.

    There are a few odd students who do think differently. Vardan Kabra (2004 batch) made headlines when he chucked an offer from P&G and started Fountainhead Education Foundation.

    But what about status and money? Kabra is candid, “At times, I do wonder whether I have made the wrong choice but that’s a temporary phase.”…

    Punani’s words probably reflect the overall sentiments of many others of his kind, “My batchmates earn tonnes, while I earn pennies; most people have sleepless nights, I go to sleep content.”

    There are some unconventional souls in the present batch too, like Gaurav Dagaonkar, a guitarist and vocalist who wants to start a music company. This soon-to-be IIM-A grad calls money “a by-product of talent.

  2. Nice to know, but why spam about it? Comments on two consecutive posts, a mail through formmail? What else is planned?

    Its good to know that IIM system is not devoid of such people.

  3. I am new to all this, so Initially I thought posted in the right
    place, but after discovered it is in technology, then
    looked for appropriate heading, so I posted it in thoughts,
    but later again saw in the left column to this mail me link,
    so did it again, that’s why 3 times

  4. also is this topic not for spamming, just interested to know
    how elite group(this Bloggroup) reacts to these kind of
    things, please comment

  5. Sandeep: Thanks a lot and same to you πŸ™‚
    JJ: This is a personal blog. I can write about it for sure, but from your use of the word “blog group” I got a feeling that you confused it with something else. Anyway.

  6. Thnx, anyways I mean your blogrole and also visitors to your blog
    the likes of Ayan’s,Ted’s and IIMites/IITians taking a role
    in helping the scoiety/common issues

  7. hmmm… Jaya, you seem to be an amazingly patient person. By this time I would have blocked/blacklisted/screamed/badmouthed… done everything possible to (i hope) you know what πŸ˜›

  8. Ha ha – I would not care what someone wants to prove himself/herself so long as it does not affect me. πŸ˜€ Otherwise I am a bit too impatient as many of my regular readers will know πŸ™‚

  9. Null Bit : I am not sure if it is for me or for something else

    I just want to know how current crop of IIMites think about
    taking different role(s) to improve society’s common issues

    Jaya: Thanks for your patience If I am prolonging this
