Coming back to me :)

Where were you when I was burnt and broken
While the days slipped by from my window watching
Where were you when I was hurt and helpless
Because the things you say and the things you do surround me
While you were hanging yourself on someone else's words
Dying to believe in what you heard
I was staring straight into the shining sun

Lines from "Coming back to Life",Pink Floyd

The last week has ,without a doubt, been the best in my life.It wasn't so because of the fact that my dream of finally getting to study a field that i adore is coming true , it is because i have never learnt so much about myself,never been so strong, never been so satisfied and never been happier.

When i finally got to know what my results were( aka IIMK conversion) i was heartbroken to say the least, but held a straight face.The IIMC result brought me to the verge of breakdown but i survived :).

I thought a lot about what went wrong or where i let things slide.I didn't get anywhere for a while and was confused as hell.

Still in denial, i joined the IIMK 2007 Y! group.I learnt a lot about the college and more importantly the people coming there to study.Strangely enough, for a guy like me, I paid little attention to placements. As i got to know more and more people and their profiles, i was beginning to realise that this wasn't quite what i had imagined it to be.

With me being one of the two freshers in the group out of a total of 40, i started to feel better.I feel over the moon about the fact that i will actually have finance as a subject :), vishy and payne will understand.

I have decided to have a whale of a time at K and put in my best for the next two years of my life.

As far regrets go, I got none.

I do have a crib though.Now that we are through with the CAT n all.One of my best friends, my roomie(if he'll let me call myself that:), eh ) did not get through.I believe that few people deserve a seat in the IIMs more than him.Hemnani dude, you will, without a doubt, make it to where u want.

It will surprise many of you that inspite of 4 rejections and one conversion :) I feel i have got what i deserved.I have no complaints, people with better profiles and with more hard work got through where i got rejected.I am besides myself with excitement to go there, just a matter of two months now :).

Best of luck to all and to me :).


P.S: This blog will now belong to a B-schooler :)
P.P.S: For some reason i wanted to post this in italic, nothing else :)

  • Hi Rohit,

    Congratulations on making it to IIMK!
    You're going to have 2 unforgettable years in what is honestly "God's own campus". :)

    Put your disappointments behind you - there will be lots of opportunities for you also at IIMK, and like all opportunities in life - it's what you make of them.
    Go there with a positive mind, party hard, study hard, make friendships that will last you a lifetime, get involved in student activities and leave an indelible mark on IIMK.

    Feel free to mail me at if you ever need any help/info regd K.

    Good luck and Carpe Diem. :)
