Buying a Car

Tuesday, April 20th, 2010

Hundreds of people buy cars every day in India – who would have thought that the process was so crazy – or maybe it was just me. My tryst with this process started about 10 months ago:

I had just landed myself with a job in Gurgaon, and anyone who’s been in Gurgaon knows that you cannot survive here without a means of transportation – as there is no public transportation to speak of. I had seen the Ritz while in Shimla a couple of days earlier, and had liked the car. It was the “new kid on the block” and everyone was after one – and hence the models we wanted weren’t available. We scoured through the showroom in Gurgaon till we found one which had what we wanted – a Blue Ritz Ldi (diesel) model. We promptly booked the car – using Sonali’s debit card – and then started the looooong process.

Me and Heads of Schools . . .

Monday, July 20th, 2009

This is a different post altogether – Its not a photo-journal, nor is it a photo-tutorial – as a matter of fact it has nothing to do with photos.

Its about a very curious phenomenon (you can call it co-incidence) that has happened around me and the heads of various schools I have been through.

1990 – St. Edwards School, Shimla: I left school after sixth to join Lawrence School, Sanawar. Our school principal retired in 1989.

1995 – Lawrence School, Sanawar: I passed grade 10 and went on to join DAV College, Chandigarh from my +2. The school headmaster left to join another international school in 1994.

1997 – DAV College, Chandigarh: Went on to join Chandigarh College of Architecture after passing grade 12. The school principal retired in 1997

2002 – Chandigarh College of Architecture: Graduated from college in 2002; our principal retired in 2002 as his term had ended.

2003 – School of Planning and Architecture, Department of Building Engineering and Management: Graduated in 2004. The HOD’s term ended in 2004-05 and he was replaced.

2009 – Indian School of Business: Graduated 2009, the Dean had to resign in 2008 end.

Isn’t it funny – can it be called a mere coincidence, I wonder . ..  . Any comments anyone ?
