• The woods are lovely dark and deep…

    Prashant Gutch (PGP 2011-13) on his preparation for the IIMB interviews. The woods are lovely dark and deep But I have promises to keep And miles to go before I sleep And miles to go before I sleep These 4 lines are the closest to how I can sum up my experience post CAT.

  • Take the Plunnge…

    August 1st, 2012 – I enter my fifth year at IIM Bangalore this month. From a travelling salesman in Qualcomm, to a nobody today, it has been a fantastic joyride – something I really feel blessed that happened to me.  I call this state a “Plunnge” from where I was to where I wanted to be. And I wrote a book on the same topic (More details on www.plunnge.com ) which has 15 stories of ordinary people like me.
