What is in a name?

24 Apr

Although I agree I exaggerate sometimes (ok, always) to dramatise things and situations, this happened for real…
Today a classmate told me this story. Couple of days in one of the waking interludes he was reading a newspaper and his room-mate was orkutting.Somehow the roomie reached my profile and my scrap book (for people from Jupiter orkut is a kind of networking portal where you meet and can chat with other people including strangers.You leave messages in people’s scrapbook)
Suddenly he goes yaar,yeh dhivya bhi gazab ki ladki hai..kya kya likhti hai..his tone implied I had fallen even below the low levels of morality expected from me..
so my classmate jumps up,flings his newspaper aside and comes to have a look at what new kaand I have created..and there it was another testimony to my loose character..I had scrapped a guy asking Are you in nitie?
It would have been probably one of my future classmates who might have sent me a friend request.The roomie had interpreted nitie,the institute name as nighty as in lingerie…and had thought i was asking some guy if he was in nighty!!
(a guy in nighty..interesting possibilities there…pink floral polka dotted…)
So people I know its not as famous as some other b-schools but it is one of the best..I am actually inclined at this point of time to preferring it over MDI,Gurgaon where am waitlisted because of its better placement in the sector of my choice..
so for further info check out life at nitie and b-school rankings
And yes please it aint NIIT either..another friend asked why I was taking computer certification program after in Comp Science…
I mean I know I have susupect technical knowledge but….

    I faced similar probs too.. Ppl mistook NITIE for NIT( the Old RECs ) or NIIT( Phew!! ). But any one remotely related to MBA wud acknowledge its prestige.

    Guy in Nighty…hahaha..I hv this problem of imagining things while reading.

    Hey grail! Good to hear that you’re goin to be in Bombay – my most beloved Indian city. Though miles and seas away, I still remember the days I spent there – the crowd, the malls, three movies back to back at adlabs..hmmmm, I miss the city. I’m sure you’ll like it if you stay away from the local trains..
