The true taste of MBA

Till you dont do it, you dont feel it and you can now way predict it. Until now I had only heard about how MBA will make you work like never before, more than 5 hours of sleep will be a luxury, but had never experienced it. SJMSOM was rigorous but at no point I had felt that this was getting out of hand. But the last 10 days have given me the true taste of MBA.

We had a big event Systems Continuum 2006 on 4th and 5th of February. I was a member of the core organizing team and while the preparattion had started 1 month in advance, the last week before the event was extremly hectic. So many things to do and so little time . Only when you organize such an event that you realize that so many small things have to be done to make sure that the event goes off smoothly. We had to work day and night and at the same time ensure that we did not miss out on Classes and quizzes. To our credit, we did manage to pull off the event very successfully. And i can tell you that when the event finished, we were literally on top of the world. We had managed to pull it off.

If we thought that we could relax for one day, then we were very wrong. This term we have projects for all 5 subjects and none of them had progressed beyond the drawing board. Submission of 2 projects was today . I had to work even more than I did for Sys Conti. I havent slept more than 5 hours for the last 10 days . And in the last 2 days a cumulative sleep of 6 hours. Of course, there is no respite in the classes either. Every other day we had quizzes to give or assignements to submit . But I manage to do it . I dont think that I have ever worked harder in my life. MY mind and body wanted to give up but i soldiered on !! Somehow i was sure that if i could make it saturday then i would be fine .

And i have made it to Saturday . We now have 2 days of Holidays . Although 2 projects are to be submitted on Monday and there are 2 presentations as well, but it wont be as hectic in the weekend . Oh and i almost forgot, I also had to play Cricket Matched for the SJMSOM team in the intra-IIT tournament . So, more tiredness and less sleep. Thankfully, we have won the first match and are in the 2nd round .

Our SOM Assiciation elections were held this wednesday and i was elected as the Social Secreatry . This is a very responsible post and I hope i can do justice to it. Our exams are starting from next saturday and now have to prepare for that . I guess I can only relax on 23rd when our exams finally end. Until then -- " Lage Raho !! "

P.S. Now i realize why IITians sing - " Dinbhaar Kaam nahi Araam , Koi ye bataye kahan jaaye " .
