16 November 2009

Some folks related this to - 16 December -starring Milind & Dipannita ;)

They say - "Success isn't a result of spontaneous combustion.You must set yourself on FIRE".

Good things happen to good people who too have good people by their side.

Just to sprinkle , good time ,good luck ,good blessings & yes ! good love also do the final refining.

Something similar happened on 16 November,2009.

My third semester exams started from this date . That's just a part worth :)

A lot more happened .

In words of my peers ,as they said -

Karan -

-->your MBA is OVER / has come to an end

-->you can / could possibly be engaged now....even marry

-->why even study for the exams . Damn. You don't need to .

-->so all sincere people making it to the top,

-->you deserved it all,


-->Enjoy whatever time you have in the B-school to the full......







Views and opinions matter. Only good ones :) ;)

So,why all this "gyaan" on one single day. For it's not my BIG DAY or even a D / B 'day.

Just because I got placed ;)

Well,that's not JUST .

Its a dream come true.

Its divine.

Its just.......

"Doubt is a pain too lonely to know that faith is his twin brother."

One of the toughest selection processes I ever undertook , spent one full day ,including giving an end term paper and then preparing for an another one on the 17th . huh !!

It was all so very Happening.

and best part was not at a place I knew but at a place which I adore for a number of reasons ;)

You really never know when time takes you places .

It was all falling into place.The day,the process,the works.MAGIC all over.All around.

Calls,texts,emails,hugs and xxxx all came poring in .From all around.

Believe me it was the BEST DAY of the year and one which goes into my top list.

And it wouldn't be fair on my part not to say this to ALL you special people-


To all the teachers / profs / mentors who taught me everything in most amazing ways,

To all those who studied with me @ MSM,SBSCET,SIIB,

to all those who worked with me at PMP,IOCL,Genpact,

to all those who helped me @ MNYL,

for all the love,the blessings ,the good wishes,

for all those whom I met / will meet in this journey of life,

for those who are no longer with me but still in my heart,

for the memories that I carry -the good ones and the bad ones ;)

from the bottom of my heart


Best Wishes ,


Remember --We may encounter many defeats but we must not be defeated--

Being an Indian Police Service Officer - an IPS

Everytime I watch a movie , like  - Sarfarosh , Gangaajal or Sehar , all I want to be , in this life is - an IPS officer. 

You may think its the power and the pride that comes with the post which an IPS officer holds or some of you may say its the sheer status the word IPS reflects upon . The perks like most of us know , is having an unprecedented power , a lal-batti , a huge team which does ' Jai Hind ' and a whole lot of a new world .

Given, I have had a good fortune to be in a family of IPS and know and understand from them what is it being an IPS officer most of the above mentioned movies or may be the image we tend paint in our minds is very different from what actually is an IPS officer and what all does he undergoes to be one.

I would put my take on this and share with you all my thoughts on what is a life of an IPS .

Studying is just a part of it . The civil services examination is considered not only the toughest in Indian competitive examination scenarios but also one o…

10 things to do in Kodaikanal

There is something about rains and open spaces that make me a little more than hilarious . And not only me , couple of others as well . 

Today , rains in Delhi bought back the festive cheer killing the week long SMOG clouding all around Delhi / NCR . As I up for an early morning catch-up breakfast with a few special folks , we decided let's step out and drive away to a place far from the traffic snarls yet has a festive cheer .

The thought came to go to Kodaikanal . While you may think I am crazy and my rest of the gang mad but then this is how life should be - unplanned , unbiased and unimaginable yet positive . 

Known world over as the princess of hill stations this place has made me fall in love all over again . My first thought on reaching here was , this can't be in India . This has to be a foreign location.   Pristine surrounding ,  lovely people to talk to and spend time with and not to forget the bicycles that can be rented to take a ride or two around the famous Kodaikan…

Travel Diaries & more - Make it count

Everytime I travel, I look forward to meeting new people. New places as well can be explored but what is home without humans!?
Off late, besides the flights getting delayed, I like to reach the airport ahead of my scheduled departure timing & sit around in the lounge & read or chit-chat. Works for me.
Last week was fun & yet a bit hectic. During one of my lounge visits I hosted a dear friend ( though exactly for 15 minutes ) for a small #CoffeewithKaran session & off he had to go. In those 15 minutes we spoke in true blue corporate styles. First 5 minutes updates from him and I sipped my hot chocolate and then the next 5 minutes updates from my side.  The remaining 5 minutes were spent on discussing  ' better than before'  .
During my flight I met an amazing doctoral student or a fellowship candidate as she likes to be described. She was pursing her close 4 years doctor fellowship from a premium institute and such was her focus that she decided not to get married …
