The fire within to do MBA

Sorry for blogging after such a long time. This last one month has been stressful to say the least. Have been working worser than an army of ants. Late nights, working over the weekends has really left no time for myself. In this process i happened to have completed 2 years in Infosys. Wow what an event! A guy who never was a 'Software Guy' during his Engineering College days is now 2 years old in here. But does he want to be here always? Does he want to fix defects, debug lines of code and argue about requirements not being met?Is life all about Dynamic Link Libraries and Stored Procedures? Where is MBA? Where is the guy who wanted to be a marketing guy when in engineering college? Those presentation skills which raised quiet a few eyebrows some years back, are now lying somewhere over a heap of dust. Wake up deepak. Wake up. You are not gonna end up as one of those guys who always aspired to be an MBA and change his field, but ended up being a mid level manager in a software company. Its only you who knows what you want and take you where you want to be? I give you three options - Wharton, Stanford and ISB. You are gonna be in one of them. Get going. Start studying.

The burning desire for doing MBA

More than 2 months in Middletown, CT. Less than 2 years work experience. Still pursue the dream of doing an MBA in a top notch institute. But...have to hang on to gain valuable experience and also money. Getting to learn a lot of things in the working life. Indeed glad that didnt join an MBA school, directly after completing my Engineering. Only when you face, handle and survive real life situations, see real managers only then can you share, experience and enrich yourself with an MBA. Else whats the use of being a bookish Manager?

The meaning and application of the teachings of an MBA will penetrate much deeper into the roots of the 21st century manager, only when he has seen good and bad managers, has been managed well or misused.

The management principles cannot be applied in real life, unless one knows what principles to apply and in what scenarios. The scenarios will be more clearly visible only when one works for some amount of time.

Thankful to Infy!

I have come down to USA for an Onsite Assignment. Its indeed glad to be a part of an organization like Infosys and be given this global exposure in less than 2 years of work experience after finishing engineering. I have had my share of frustrations and tough times in my working life, just like any one of you, but that still doesnt deter my determination and loyalty towards Infosys. They say love your job and not your company, because you never know when your company stops loving you. I dont know if i love my job or my company, but am patriotic to my company and would definitely payback for selecting me as an employee. I am typing in whatever's coming to my mind, and am sure you would be bored now. So more details on my onsite experience will soon follow.

The creation of "Lets Talk" public speaking club

Am starting off a brand new day..tadada. Hehehe its yet another eventful day in the life of Deepak Chandrasekaran, the guy who is keying all these words down, which will eyeballs will savour for years to come! No was indeed a pleasure to see the posters of my club 'Lets Talk' being put in all the Food Courts of our IT Company Campus. Indeed a very good job by the PR Team, to whom the task was selectively delegated. Its indeed a different kind of feeling to bump across something that you are trying to initiate in a new place. Am trying to initiate a public speaking club in this office of our organisation with a close friend. We have a vision to upgrade it to a full fledged Toastmasters Club in the future. Even though we are just starting a club, the feeling, satisfaction and challenges are same as that of being a budding enterpreuner and starting your own organization. More later..

Air Supply's "All Out of Love" by a Software Engineer

Am lying alone...with my head on the desk.
waiting for work till it comes.
i know am on bench..
but what else can i do..tormented and of no use (to the company)

I wish i could add some bugs to the code
the times when i was given a deadline..
I am searching for a project are u seeing it too
the feeling seems too tiring

Hahahah the above was a custmoization of the song "All Out of Love" (Air Supply) by a person who is on the reserves in a reputed IT company.

This just goes to show that IT guys are creative and do have a sense of humor.

More slapstick humor at this place.

19 months of work ex

Hi there! Almost a day since i posted anything. I have been employed for the past 19 months or so. I wont exactly vouch for the fact that its enjoyable working on a job profile, for which you arent carved out to be. But thats the best opportunity that fate had in store for me, 19 months ago when i had kicked a BPO job..only to be jobless,remorse and depressed at home. Then came in this opportunity to show case my abilities and that helped me make up mind is all about sailing through boulders with your chest held out and head held high. Nothing comes in a platter. Your favourite job, your cute girlfriend or your much desired palatial house. Blood and sweat and untiring efforts on the path of discipline is what will lead you to where you really want to be in life.

Today as i create this Weblog on the internet..i am unleashing my innate ability to connect with human beings all around the world by sharing my experiences and giving a sneak preview of the happenings around me.

They say strength is all about mental toughness and internal ruggedness more than the exterior muscular self. We as human beings are always passing through a passage of emotions, anger and mixed feelings. The journey indeed has a host of demons, who have to be kept at bay by the sword of mental alertness.

Too much of crap already! More to short...i am gonna help unleash the potential of using our inner strength, through this weblog.
