BITS Pilani Campus recruitment drive

Image
So I had been to BITS Pilani again (I never thought I would go there again after my MS project viva).... Reason: Campus recruitment from my current company.  We set off from Bangalore on Saturday morning with Question Papers.. Answer sheet (to make sure we don't goof up correcting the answer sheets given by the students). Reached Delhi at around 12:00 and then headed to Radisson Hotel to pick up the HR. We then went to a mall in Gurgaon to have our Lunch. Gurgaon I believe is in Haryana district and not Delhi (surprising.. hv to check it up again!!! ) but it looks like more "metro"ish than Delhi. 1000s of huge buildings - offices.. 100s of malls.. . well maintained wide roads. After having rajasthani lunch we set off to Pilani in 2 Innovas. 3 Techies (Anil, Jeetu, Sumeet) in one car, my PM (Balajee), hr poornima, Pranay & me in one. Reached Pilani at around 8 PM and went to Connaught place for dinner. This place is like MG Road of most cities - the only bustling busi…

My First Property...

[DRAFT]Yes... Bought an house yesterday (10th Jan 2008). After 2+ months of *praying* to the ING Vysya bank, the registration did take place yesterday. Location Details: #380, Shirdi Sai South Avenue, Gottigere, Bangalore. It's supposed to be part of JPNagar 9th phase and is about a km deviation of bannergatta road (about 3 kms from Meenakshi temple). Once the nice road gets completed, should be a quick 15 min drive from/to Electronic City.So, the dream of owning an house atlast is fulfilled. Just as an investment opportunity and hopefully will get a tenant soon. The house is right behind the 60*40 site where my sister is constructing an house for us, so it should be easy to manage.

"Inside Intuit" - A great READ !!!

Image
[DRAFT] Initially I thought it was another of those marketing strategy books... And thought of skimming through the chapters on the cab drive back home. But after reading few chapters... I believe this is totally different. This turns out to be a great read not only for the interesting things happening in each chapter but for some amazing thoughtful pointers. It's great to know the mental thoughts going through the founders as they take each and every step. Definitely creates an entrepreneur thought in you. It's quite different from the "Google Story" where you loose interest after few great interesting chapters... .U can read some excerpts from the book at Google Books and review comments at Amazon. .

Wish you all a very Happy New Year 2008 !!!

Let this year bring on the determination, capability, courage & luck to fulfill all your long standing wishes ! ... Wish you all the best again !
