The "New" Year!!!

The New Year indeed brought some new rays into my life. The 3rd day of 2009, which is being considered lucky by many (for different reasons like numerology, stars, planets etc etc) got lucky for me too as I got placed in Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL). The process lasted the day starting early at 8 and ending around 5 after which I found myself to be the chosen one!

It was an irony of sorts for last 2 days wherein the Oil PSU Officers were on strike. On one hand, the whole country, including me were facing lots of problems and on the other hand if the strike was successful in managing hike in salaries, it was me who would be getting the benefit. May be the ironical situation is more prominent because presently, I am more a common man than an IOC employee.

Going forward, time to set some new goals. Have atleast 3 things to look forward to. The US trip and preparation for that, alumni meets next week and an attempt at Enduro. Another attempt will be to update the blog more often and do some more work on the newly started MBA gyaan blog!!!
