Are you confuesd??

With November approaching fast..in India..the most common phenomenon which grips a major share of student community is MBA entrance examinations across the length and the breadth of the country.
Even if it had been till examination it would have been much better, but the real pain begins not during the examination preparation but once you are through with it.

This pain comes in form of filling various forms for different B-Schools spread across the nation. These entrance forms are big time money spinner for these MBA colleges. when I was going through this stage..I always use to wonder why the heck a small piece of paper with few columns and boxes spread here and there cost me so heavily.
Trust me filling a form of 1200-1300 bucks (this is standard these days I guess..) is big time pain in a**.
specially students from humble background really feel the pinch of this consistently. Every time you go to your dad and ask him to dole out some moolah..he will always look upon you as if you you have committed some crime..and folks..he will be the first person to boast about your B-school admission..(lolzz so natural..with due respect to their feelings)..still its a hard time for B-School aspirants..

Coming down to business…how to fill forms???…people generally take it as a very casual process leading to a messy situation and loads of wastage of money..earlier it was not that difficult but with ever growing B-Schools, one feels that for what to go for and what not…
Actually form filling is sort of pre-test of your managerial attitude..what B-school to aim for what to leave…so many questions..

well the basic fact one should always keep in mind is that never be very impulsive on form filling…that never be to under estimating about your MOCK Exams score and even don’t be too bullish about it..suppose you are scoring consistently between 80-90 percentile..then you can aim for few colleges which are within 95 percentile (because you never know that it may be your day..)..and also keep few colleges below 80 percentile level..so that you can save your face for the worst case scenario..(surely it all depends on your choice of college).. and then surely you can go on to fill forms of those B-School whom you think you can easily manage to get through.

Another very important fact is that, always maintain a diary..keeping track of all the B-schools you have applied for..it sounds a bit casual..but it really helps..maintain information like Deadline, cost of the form, website address and other important facts related to that particular college.

Make a sound strategy..and prepare accordingly for that B-Schools. Form filling is all about holding your nerves and playing it safe….and if you feel that you can make it to a particular B-school then don’t stop your self from filling the form..I mean investment made in forms..are normally not wasted (provided that you work hard enough to secure that coveted B-school seat)…with these points in mind..I guess form filling process can be a cake walk (for me at least this was the case)…So what are you waiting for…make your plan and go for the final kill..

When every one sleeps..

its 3:45 am in the morning and I am sitting alone on the stair case of my hostel..searching for that precious wi-fi signal..so that I can access net and beat my boredom by surfing something on net..ok ok chuk it..I am looking for that person who has been elusive since long..and I am just sitting in wee hours with a dull hope of chatting with that person..

Life is pretty strange these days..things are changing pretty fast..new relationships coming up struggling to replace the old one..sort of constant struggle going on to make a better future..to inflict less pain to my near and dear ones..I don’t know what I am saying..sometimes in our life we are so confused that we just don’t know that in what direction we are being driven by the driver called life…

Painful memories of past are rushing through mind..making this moment of solidarity a more painful one..

Loneliness is really beautiful sometimes..you be alone and suddenly you can feel as if so many facts of life gets unrevealed in front of you, which is hidden in our day to day life.
Sometimes I feel as I have fallen in love with being alone..I feel like spending loads of time introspecting about my life..which is just not happening…

Ok ok ..no more philosophy..loads of things coming up..time to gear up for acads (although this time never comes 😉 )…time to gear up for the upcoming placement season..in nutshell time for some change…

I just wish that coming time can bring in some hope with it…

Amen…

Rock On- DCH 2?

With this weekend witnessing slew of releases…Rock On was one of those which also hit the silver screens across the nation.
well Initially when the music was launched of the same movie some where in July I guess..my Initial reaction was that what the heck this will be all about..and I was almost with the decision- not to watch the movie, but then classes wrapping up I was having plenty of time in hand this Friday to catch up with the new release..and frankly speaking I went to hall looking for Bachna ae Haseeno..and changed my mind on the ticket window itself..neways time for some review…

well the movie comes from the makers of DCH (Dil Chahta Hai), with this movie being a acting launchpad of Farhan Akthar (who has already proved his mettle as a director) stakes are high.
Movie opens with the already hit number “Socha Hai”…and I must say that it really sets the mood of the whole offering coming up in next few hours.
this movie is about a rock band called as MAGIK..with four members in it..Aditya Shroff(Farhan), Joe (Arjun), Rob (Luke Kenny) and KD killer drummer (Puran Kohli).

The story revolves around this band itself and happenings around it..infact the storyline is pretty simple, from the first reel itself you know that what will be the end of the movie.
in initial hours of movie its all about the yippee things..I mean fun and frolic involved with the band..etc etc.

The story is simple. There is a band called Magik, they get their first break with one audio company, but while making of their debut album, loads of ego clashes crop up between Aditya and Joe leading to breakup of the band..and then you know what happens after ten years of breakup, all four members of the band are busy with something or other, but none of them is happy because the dream they saw of making MAGIK a success was never fulfilled.
Bottom line..the movie is about breaking up and then how the members reunite to fulfill their dream after ten years.
Acting was everyone is in top form..watching Farhan altough is not that pleasent and sometimes he is too loud..but still you can see that maturity in his acting, Arujn Rampal has finally got his due..I don’t know why he is always underutilized by directors..but trust me this time he is a revelation. watch him when he expresses without saying a word-Amazing.
Purab is another fine actor..who movie after movie is maturing, he is lovable to watch.
Rob is also good I mean ok types.

Overall the movie is primarily for Multiplex audiance, and will surely find crowd in college going pepole.
Somehow this movie has a hangover of DCH, but nevermind even that hangover is good to watch.

Songs in my opinion are a letdown infact I feel there was much scope for improving those songs..but never mind finished good is of top notch.

Climax of the movie is amazing, the concert, the songs, Arjun’s Pain..everything has been captured beautifully..

7.5/10 is what I will give to this movie..Go for it…
