Never again will you have anyone who will wake up half an hour before you do and give you THAT SPECIFIC … More Mummy! – The Indian male’s paradox
I knew in 6th grade itself that I would be doing an MBA. No kidding. My mother’s logic was, “Your dad has one degree. You must have at least two. We will see about the PhD”. Ever since I was a kid, I knew I had to prepare for the all important entrance exams. So … More Why MBA?
