A New Beginning

A new beginning was going to start a couple days ago on Avani Attam. Small failures on that day and the day after, but today I think I'm on track.

I've finally decided to move forward, faster and stronger. Leaving everything that hurts, now the focus is work and more of it. Prep needs to be like damn good so that even failure never hurts, used to know what that used to feel like. Working for that feeling once again.

A month more to got till I hot home, so plenty of time to get things back on track. Better now, a lil late, but so much better than never.

Mumbai happened for a week for "Corporate Placement Presentations" (as we used to sell it), a practice that has supposedly been followed in IIFT for quite some time.

Interesting events occurred throughout, and the whole exercise was personally a big question mark(?).

But the city totally rocked, a superb place to work in, provided you have the dough of course; but the skyline especially early in the morning and late at night is quite breath taking.

The locals are quite a different experience in itself, my round corners finally came to good use and I literally threw my weight around. A week at home Vs a week in Mumbai, well guess it was gonna be a tough decision either way..Lets see if Mumbai holds the key..[:D]

Back to Delhi..

Been a week at IIFT now, not all that great as I expected to be. Miss home and L terribly and delhi aint helping that one bit. Emotions running high. Juniors offer a good distraction, and PDP's are going on in full swing. Back home again this week for coach's wedding.
Electives seem to be promising, everything else is so "interesting". GEEP, SSE, IHRM, SCSS, GSBD; five subjects not in even a nearby line with respect to the future..
Waiting for it to get more exciting.. [:D]

Silver set to rule again

One of the most exciting weekends ever, a week ago. We were fast and exciting and the race had just about everything. A Champion losing control 4 times and a rookie not making a single mistake. Either way Mercedes was on top and they were unbeatable.
Bloggin this on a Sunday, eagerly awaiting for the next race tonight where Mclaren will reign again, the Champion I hope this time around. This season so proves that its the driver and not the ride that matters and that is jus perfect, almost 10 years after the Flying Finn reigned and bathed in Silver glory. Man, it been that long, a really really long wait..10 years..Patience pays..[:D]..I can never forget getting a kick out of the constant 1-2's of the Silver cars lapping everyone else including 3rd position.

The 22 Immutable Laws of Marketing

The first few chapters change your perception of Marketing drastically for a person nascent into that field. For a person familiar with the basic marketing functionalities it analyzes and attacks these commonly held practices of marketers. The premise behind this book is that in order for marketing strategies to work, they must be in tune with some quintessential force in the marketplace. Just as the laws of physics define the workings of the universe, so do successful marketing programs conform to the "22 Laws." Each law is presented with illustrations of how it works based on actual companies and their marketing strategies.

In this book, they argue that the market position of a product or service in the perception of the customer is everything, and offer up twenty-two "immutable" laws of marketing that to them demonstrate this fundamental point. Their basic thesis is that " cope with the terrifying reality of being alone in the universe, people project themselves on the outside world. They "live" in the arena of books, movies, television, newspapers, and magazines. They "belong" to clubs, organizations, and institutions. These outside representations of the world seem more real than the reality inside their own minds....

People cling firmly to the belief that reality is the world outside of the mind and that the individual is one small speck on a global spaceship.

Actually, it is the opposite. The only reality you can be sure about is in your own perceptions. If the universe exists, it exists inside your own mind and the minds of others. That is the reality that marketing programs must deal with. Most marketing mistakes stem from the assumptions that you are fighting a product battle rooted in reality. All the laws in this book are derived from the exact opposite point of view."

The book challenges almost every major corporation and its decisions with respect to marketing strategies.

The Iron Maiden Concert

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

It was a mind blowing experience. It was a semicircular stadium hall, and I was right in the middle with various fellow IIFTians. The rock was way over the decibel limit and it was ear shattering. The band were playing some of their best hits, at least my personal favorites.
Then the stadium started rockin literally and I soon found myself of the floor of Room No:51 thrown off the bed with my friend looking at me in horror.

At that moment my friend was playing "Run to Hills" in full blast and at that moment I knew how real my concert was.
An awesome experience neverthelesses..
