The first week of the term is always a relaxed one. Therefore this is also the best week to hold all events and talks. We had the head of India’s number 1 retailer, Pantaloons, give a talk. Then there was someone from Oracle, organized by the Tech Club. One of my classmates, who is a Major from the Army, gave a talk about leadership lessons. And finally the Sports Club organized inter-section matches for soccer and tug-of-war. Tug-of-war was interesting because the audience was allowed to throw buckets of water on the competing teams!

This term we have to give presentations to our class on the IT industry. Different study groups will get different topics. The first group’s topic was on value creation in the PC industry. Over lunch I was talking to one of the group members on this topic, and it felt so good to talk about tech after so many months of Finance and Marketing. We discussed tablet PCs, 64 bit architecture, Centrino, Apple’s new iMac etc. My group’s topic is outsourcing/offshoring, which should really be a cakewalk. A paper of 15 pages and a powerpoint presentation of 15 minutes is what is required.

A new Admissions Director has joined ISB to fill the vacuum left by the departure of the previous Director. There are some changes planned for Admissions this year, which I believe to be prudent ones. Will give details later.

Meanwhile I joined the Editorial team of the newsletter for the Technology Club. It’s difficult to juggle so many responsibilities – Admissions taskforce, student newsletter, club newsletter, website, communications etc.
