This book reading was really specially for me as I felt I was peeking into the the two years of my son's life thru the protagonist..Shekhar Varma. I always wondered, what they teach in IIMs to completely transform the personality. My son was totally changed person after these two years.. so confident with a certain charm, whereas earlier he was this care free person, exactly like Shekhar . paragraphs I liked....
Ashok and Vasudha ( parents of Shekhar) had made a silent pledge within their hearts to leave no stone unturned in pampering him with all that they never got during their own lives. " All they never got was not an idyllic garden laden with cookies and cream pies, All that they never got was good schooling in an English medium institutions, tutions to supplement the schooling and circle of friends focused on education.
If four consecutive questions were answered as one of either options b or c, there was a high probability that one of them would be right and greater than 50 percent probability that two of them would be right.
Two kinds of people go on to become successful....... those with extraordinary merit or those with extraordinary jugaad.
A long as they are getting what they want IIM guys can be really nice people.....its just the expectations we have that are so high, that its hard to get us what we want.
But in the end I felt sad when he (Shekhar) said, he felt happy to be back at hostel from home........ and realised that children grow like this only:)
