Bum hoon main !

While others work hard for their interviews, I have just come back home after spending two dayz of aish in the hostel. I had deluded myself by thinking that I would go and study there, that’s a laugh, anyway In the end I played flash aka I gambled for almost 12 outta the 48 hours, slept another 12, another 12 spent in bakchodi and add another 6 for food, that’s 42 outta 48 hours, and the rest I studied. I mean, how can one study when you have the most lazy bums in the world as your friends. In fact I would say that when we join the industry one day, people will be astonished at how little work we can do while sounding excessively exhausted.

Apart from the BS, read Liar’s poker, a book on investment banking by Philip Lewis. Its about the experiences of a guy working at Salomon brothers. Cool book. Me really want to work in an I-bank some day, max fun career, that one is.

Anyways, due to lack of time and a being a lazy bum, me will get back to reading a project that moi will claim as mine in the IIMA interview :D. My own project is on some speech recognition using neural networks which sounds like “abakukumelupoporakokuko” to me.

Wish me luck guys, I need it here. I will be back after my II….nono lemme write the whole thing, Indian Institute of Management, Ahmedabad interview on the 22nd of February.

Damn those bastards, I am taking a gun wid me and I will not be shy of taking it out if they dare to ask me about analog electronics.

Dholakia Dood , Your days are numbered.

  • HEy,
    Read ur Interview nicw goin:))
    about the 3 ke saath 2 free wala funda for jwellery I guess the answer should be that it is a commodity and not a brand hence so sense in giving away for free.Ppl
    dont distinguish between brands while buying gold if it is say 22 karats u wont mind buying it from anyone...
    Anyways i stay near Dhaula Kaun could you suggest some nice place there(for the books i mean)...

  • dude wouldnt that in effect mean that it is not cost effective? anyways, the places where u can get those books near ur place would be CP, bookshop next to regal, you get all kinds of second hand books there at reasonable prices

    By Blogger Rohit Anand, at 11:48 AM  

  • Sorry I did not get you bout the cost effective part..
    Commodities like steel,copper,gold
    etc are never sold like FMCG products they are characterized by some industry standard for ex carats for gold.Thats why you see prices of gold published in the newspaper cause irrespective of who manufactures it you will only pay that amount for gold.Now HLL may start a scheme for 1 with 1 free cause it will increase it's market share but it makes no sense for a gold producer to do that cuase even if the demand for gold increases there is no gurantee that next time customers will purchase from you cause it is a commodity..
    Hope you get my point.
    PS:Bout the bookstores i knew these places but some how never able to find those books..

  • but dood what they were talking bout was finished jewelery and diamond n is not sold like bars of it or summin to people like u n me is only the raw material a lot of value is added in the for of crafting or whatever and then it is prices would vary for different sellers since the labour cost would also have been incorporated

    By Blogger Rohit Anand, at 2:26 PM  

  • Maybe ur right but as far as i now (maybe u can confirm with ur mom)in India Jwellers never charge for the craftsmanship only for the weight of the gold....

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 5:27 PM  

  • dude..i am saying this by simple logic ,not based after asking my mom :).Think about it ,u have some raw material and u create something out of it, u have to charge more to earn some profit, else where will you earn if the cost of the raw material = Final selling price?

    By Blogger Rohit Anand, at 8:29 PM  

  • by the way...u never told me ur name mate... u have been anonymous till now :)

    By Blogger Rohit Anand, at 8:30 PM  

  • Sorry I am Rajat IITB 4th yr Dual Degree,i didnt have a Blog ID so anon till now.
    Anyways the price of Gold quoted in newspapers is for u and me not for the sellers of gold who get it at a substantial discount.Hence price of raw material < Finished product.
    Although i still think by quoting Jwellery they wanted to imply commodities cause that i the only thing that makes sense.But since u gave the interview u will know better.Better to end it here.
    Bset of luck for the other interviews.

  • ok...i get ur point mate...newyz...intws done so can't change nething now...hope to see u often often the blog...keep visiting..take care

    By Blogger Rohit Anand, at 2:05 AM  

  • sorry to butt my way in...but the reason for which gold manufacturers cant do this is as rohit pointed out...tht it is not cost effective for them...they cannot afford to engage in price wars...

    and rajat dood, gold manufatcurers dont do it not because gold is not a brand,it is coz they cannot afford to so...if i were a gold manufacturer and i reduce my prices,everyone will cme to me for gold irrespective of the fact tht it is a brand or not...

  • I thought i had ended this.
    Anyways Rajesh coming to your point first of all have you heard any commodities producer coming with a 1 for 1 free offer say for example even foodgrains are commodities and their prices are comparable to your ordinary HLL shampoo bottle,but you wont see the HLL vs P&G kinda wars going on there.
    NExt point yes everyone will come to you until the point your prices are low not when you raise them back.HLL and P&G cut their prices so that once they inc their market share then they can inc them back again and make up for the previous losses.In Gold this is not gonna happen cause there is no funda of brand loyalty...
