5:50AM, August 28th 2005. On a hill somewhere in central India.
__________________________________________________________________

Sun rise. Dawn. A greyish blue sky with streaks of red and orange. Mist slowly lifting from the hill. The water tank in the distance still just a hazy image. A night spent wide awake.

I've been awake throughout the night on only a couple of occasions in life but this time there's something different. I did not realise it. This is probably one of the things that comes with being in one of these b-schools. :) I have lost all sense of time, I can carry on conversations at 4AM in the morning with either of my neighbours on any topic in the world. I can have food at any time of the day, I've woken up sometimes to ask myself if its night or day. Its 6AM now and looking back, I have no idea how the past 5 hours have rolled by. :)

B-school gives you the liberty to do nothing while being busy at it. :D It gives you the pleasure of having worked all night for a 0.02 increase in your grades(not tonight though). One of my neighbours said "being in an IIM is about the experience, studies are just a part of that", maybe he's right...maybe not but from what I've seen over the course of the past 2 months, it doesn't matter. One can actually live any which way one wants to and still manage a share of that CG pie. Whether it be to study all day and sleep all night or vice-verse or simply sleep in class, it doesn't matter. There's a spot for everyone here. From the bleary-eyed nerd to the perennial badminton court resident, from the invisible book-muncher to the Counter-Strike addict...this place is a learning in time-management, both good and bad.

Enough fart for now. The sky is lighting up now, the mist has disappeared, the street lights have turned off, its morning. I miss my camera.

Time to turn in.

Indeed he does.

Still alive. Hoping to post somewhere in the near future, or distant past.

Till then, shall leave you with these words >> "Look into your heart and you'll find the vein"

So there.
