I landed in London on the 31st of August, 2009. The orientation began on 1st September. On my first day to school, I woke up at 5:45 a.m., practiced Yoga, showered, prayed, made breakfast and reached half hour before the orientation began. For my friends who think it doesn’t sound like me, of course I am joking! The truth is – I woke up at 7:45, got out of the bed at 8:15, took a quick shower, skipped breakfast, ran to the bus without a ticket, borrowed money from a stranger to buy a ticket and made it to the orientation just in time (apologetically read 15 min late). Here is how: So it had been less than 24 hours since my arrival in London and I had limited knowledge of Oyster cards. All I knew was that I could get to school by bus for which I could buy a ticket at the stop. No one told me from where/whom. So I decided to ask the driver himself (:P) when the bus came. The driver showed me the door and I was astounded by his rudeness. Then I turned towards the door and realized he was actually pointing towards... Continue reading

As I write this post, Flora is on a flight to Hong Kong for a job interview, Prou is organizing the end of term party for MiM class, Marcus is solving the finance assignment due Monday and Andy is amusing himself with Korean baseball videos on youtube. Get introduced to the MiM team that, just an hour ago, competed for the European regional finals of One Laptop Per Child Global Case Challenge, held at Imperial College London. The College, in collaboration with Hult School of Business, hosted over 20 finalists from all over Europe, including MBA teams from INSEAD and London Business School itself. The challenge was to crack a real business problem pertaining to OLPC’s current initiative of providing laptops to children in least developed countries. This had to be accomplished in a span of 3.5 hours and presented to a panel of judges. The team providing the most practical and effective solution would be rewarded. This all-day event turned out to be one of the most rewarding experiences at school for all of us. Being a part of a gathering comprising the best consulting brains all over Europe to work together for a noble cause was a real... Continue reading

It’s over. It will be remembered. It was legendary. It was everywhere – Nash Lounge, Marquee, Quad, Regent’s room, Dining room, parking lot. TATTOO2010 was an evening that brought together more than 1200 odd LBSers from all programs to relish the cultural diversity of the school. It all started in November with sponsorship, when we had our first Tattoo meeting. Though the economic climate greatly affected sponsorship, we had some leads and decided to focus on raising funds through ticket sales. Come December, and we were aggressively marketing the event. By January, Tattoo was everywhere – in classes (presentations), Nash Lounge (Tattoo-taster week), Sundowners (T-shirt sales and tattoo distributions) and even on Facebook! On Feb 1st, the tickets sales went live and set a record for first-day sales. The event was sold out in a week. The days that led to Tattoo built up the excitement. One could see students from various programs rehearsing dances, ramp walks and rock band performances in Fitness Studio, E-wing basement (commonly known as the Salsa room), Lower Nash etc. There were posters everywhere on campus and more than 60 students had volunteered to help with the evening for bar tending, reception desk, events management...
