(You may become another sales man in the market if you are not specialise properly in your course)
In 2001 while I was going back from Delhi to Pune, once again I was alone. I took out some newspaper and magazine to read…this time I was in 2nd Class (Sleeper) with confirmed ticket. In the same compartment, there were also some guys seem going back to Pune after the winter vacation. While I was just reading the magazine, a guy who is sitting near to me started to talk with me. He looks very confident and acting over smart because he is doing his MBA from a prestigious institute like IIM, Pune. I like his confidence but I don’t like him acting over smart/show off. MBA: “Where are you from?”Me: I am basically from ManipurMBA: Is that from Assam?
Me: Yes, Manipur is the capital of Assam
MBA: Where are you going?Me: I am going to PuneMe: What about you?MBA: I am also going to PuneMBA: What do you do in Pune?Me: I am a student from Pune UniversityMe: What about you?MBA: I am doing my MBA from IIMSMe: That is great, so you are going to earn a good sum after finishing MBA.MBA: ThanksMe: Well, in which branch are you doing specialization?MBA: I am doing my specialization in MarketingMe: Oh I see that is very goodMe: But now there are too many MBAs and you need to specialize properly otherwise you will become another sales man in the market.MBA: (He was shocked when I said that)Me: We may be doing Engineering, Doctor, MBA or any course; we need to have sound knowledge and specialized properly, otherwise there is no point of doing for the sake of doing.MBA: (He is little nervous after I told him)MBA: Yes, there are too many MBAs and some are getting very low payment.Me: Nice talking to you Note: If he would have not acting over smart, I would have told him that Manipur is a separate state and the capital of Manipur is Imphal. However since he is acting smart even though he does not know the names of all the states in India, I told him that Manipur is the capital of Assam. (He just believe me and I was shocked in my heart) I would have no told him that he may become another sales man in the market if he was not acting over smart.
