Coffee Conversations


My parents had come to drop me off at IIM Cal. We reached on a Thursday and they left on the following Sunday. That day as we were having lunch in my mess we over heard the conversation of three students at the same table. They were talking about the market fluctuations in the last week.

My dad had observed it. So had I. I was scared wondering if I blend into this system. He was delighted and he said to me tha the next time he'd come over I'd probably react like this. I just thought he was crazy.

Following Thursday, we were supposed to report a case as a group. We were sitting at the library pouring in our brains and three of us took a coffee break. We walked out to Nescafe and were havign a causal conversation about our case.

Well I m still not discussing the market but at least my coffee conversations have refined :)

(Come to think of it I think I had my life's most interesting conversations over a coffee... a lot can happen over coffee...)

  1. I had warned you... Good tht you are cautious... Nothin pisses ppl more than the fact tht despite the fact tht u r in the sys you are not with the sys...

    I like tht... I do it all the time...
    I really scares the ppl... And best comes when you are actually you are very good at handling the sys... Cause you see if you are good at what you do then you define the sys... And the sys goes according to you and not the other way around...

    I preach too much for now...
