The scent of placements is in the air. It was mild to begin with but as every day passes more and more students have begun to sniff around with interest. The Economic Times has been much in demand off late and the library has begun seeing some new faces. Books are being dusted and examined more intently. Small groups of people have also started meeting secretly to discuss current affairs. Its still a crime to be seen in the open with a text book in your hand but that will soon be forgiven as the days pass by. For now we just hide the Macro Economics textbook behind the Delhi Times and pretend to be lost in the pages and pages of page 3 (Actually its kind of easy to get lost in the Delhi Times)
At the end of 18 months in IMT, I have just begun to realise how appalingly ignorant I am of all thats been taught here. Sometimes I worry if I'm going to leave IMT knowing less than when I came in. I still cant get myself to read Philip Kotler and the Financial Management textbook gives me the willies. The Economic Times does a spectacular job of failing to hold my interest. I stare blankly at it for a while before my mind starts wandering. I fantasize about Deepika Padukone for a few minutes until she asks me my views on the sub prime mortgage crisis.Then I snap back into attention. I want to leave each job interview with my dignity intact.
There's about a month to go before companies descend on campus. God willing things should go well. Wish me luck.
