Finally… my CET gd/pi is over after a very long wait
Venue: Sinhgad inst of Mgmt (SIOM) ,Pune
Date: 17 May 2007
Time: 11:00 – 11:45
Reached ther at 10:50 am..gud enuff considering the inst. is 15 kms away frm main pune city and is situated atop a hill ..(literally)..had to walk atleast half a km on a zig zag hillway coz cars n bikes wernt allowd beyond a certain point..
Huffing n panting made my way in to the bful large campus…
Filled up a form ..its the same form whch is given here..signed my attendance on a sheet n then aftr 5 mins we wer calld for the GD
Out of a batch of 14 ,, 12 wer present…all guyz L
1 fella closely resembling john abrham (unshaven)came in wid his gf ! ha:
evry1 stares @ her..john to staff :can shee wwait here till my gdpi
staff: (wow..in mind) no not at all..no frnds allowd
In to the ACseminar hall..panel of 3 all male..middle age
The topics were :
1) Dotcom or Doubtcom (?? Wot was that)
2) Management like Swimming Cannot be Taught in a classroom through lectures (selected)
no time to think..start rite away
An oversmart guy stated that thee first topic wass fr engineers so v shd select the second one. (who said dot com is only fr engg?? Wot funda maan)
— Whispers —
The panelist then askd to raise r hands fr the second topic
Unanimously all hands (including my)went up.
All went good ..the gd took the turn of practical v.s theoretical..n I chipped in wid few points like dhirubhai –no mgmt teaching – reliance , 1 more exp of a person I knw etc etc .so practical more imp..though both go hand in hand…bla blah..
Only 2 ppl did nt speak ..n again d oversmart guy showd his motivational skills n askd that guy 2 speak.. he blurted out 3 -4 words..that nobody cud hear
The panelist then askd us to conclude in 1 min..
Then suddenly out of the blue.1 guy started in hindi ..agar ek chal raha hai aur ek gadi pe jaa raha hai..to koun jaldi pahuchega??
All of us wer too stunnd to reply
He smilled n said “joo gaadi pe hai woo”
Evry1 – WTF
He meant that an mba will give ua push in the job profile..(he later told me..coz was is the same panel as me fr PI)
All in all.. a decent healthy GD. No fish market
