Why MBA/PGDBM are important in Corporate world?

MBA/PGDBM are the most important courses which one should undergo, if you are in corporate world and planning to continue with the same. I am one of those who wanted to stick to my core profession i.e. software development but alas no longer. What i felt when i started my career some years back is something which i don't see eye to eye with my present perspective. My perspective changed to a large extent. In this industry there is no place for hard working professionals (commonly referred as a resource) as mostly the people who are judging them are prejudiced. They are influenced by their managerial skills, which turns them into an egotist and work seekers. And this is prevalent right from low level Management to the top brass of any organization. Interestingly they will never let you feel what they have in their cold-blooded hearts. They will try to apply their managerial skills , which includes motivating, exclusionary goals, team work and many more to lure you. Don't let yourself feel that i am against this. That is their job and they are doing it efficiently and with diligence. Now the question is that how early we will understand this enigma, early we do, more beneficial it will be for us.
However just pursuing MBA from any college may not suffice. As this is your last formal education so it should be one of the best and remarkable for lifetime. Moreover getting into A, A+ or A++ B School is in itself tiresome and cumbersome. You need lot of benedictions, blessing and last but not the least is consistent hard work with positive outlook and confidence. You need to be focused if you want to crack CAT, XAT, GMAT, FMS, IIFT, JMET and other similar ones. Let me make very clear that CAT is not a cakewalk. It is the toughest of all the exams available. Even GMAT is easy compared to CAT. A little more of my analysis leads to the conclusion that it is toughest to extract the better of the best as this best constitutes a huge crowd especially in India. Everyone want to be in IIM especially ABC. But folks if you really want to, then buck up, be consistent in your performance, focused and hit the bulls eye. No one can help you other that the person whom you see early morning in the mirror while brushing your teeth. Till now no one was so nice to you to give answers of the questions asked in the examinations. Don't you feel IIM people are nice to you. Actually, they are judging your decision making skills. You have to choose one out or 4/5 answer options. But most of us try to find the 6th answer. But why? Because we are habitual of finding the answer. What rubbish. Guys we are here to choose the right answer and not to find the 6th one. Please understand. While approaching the questions think differently because leaders think differently and do differently.
Rest you don't need blessings, you need to work hard and that you will do only when you face an arrogant and irksome manager. So your inspiration is that want to be your manager's manager. As you don't like your manager's skills so work hard and show him, how to be a good manager. The movement you feel distracted from your goal remember your managers face, grinning on your failure. This is the mantra of your success and an easy, fast and reliable method of climbing the corporate ladder and reaching the acme of your career. Good luck and benedictions.

Price Rise Issue: Is this right way to corner Good Governance?

Introspecting yesterdays BJP's show off in new Delhi, i felt pity for them. This insane behavior brought nothing more than shame and disgust for the fainted and tainted opposition party. It is quite possible that once my favorites may get some benefit out of it. But i don't feel that everyone see price rise eye to eye. UPA is working elegantly and leaving no stone unturned to give good governance to the people of India. Hats off to UPA, how they are handling moists, terrorism in J&K and NE states. The way UPA handled situation post mumbai attack is mind blowing. The way UPA cornered Pakistan diplomatically by raising misuse of Pak Land for jihadi and terror training camps in front of world community is remarkable and had a huge impact on world initiative to eradicate terrorism. Other than junior external affairs minister no one in cabinet is in news for wrong reasons. Mr Minister tarnished the image of youth by his aberrant and barbaric behavior. This is another setback to people who believed that youth can bring change. What i say is that one bad experience can not be the universal truth and decide the fate of so many. Mr. Tharoor is either very cunning or foolish. Since he joined politics he is always in news. Anyways this is one part of UPA, well i am sure they will come up with some rectification method. The all-round performance of UPA is convincingly winning the hearts of the people. Let me go back to BJP's enticement . It is bad to say that price rise can be controlled by Government. The time when most of the countries in the world are in resource crunch, How come UPA govt. help in less cost of imported goods. Moreover with the sixth pay commission, if your salaries are almost doubled then why are you expecting that expenditure on commodities and services will be cheap. The person from whom you buy any service or commodity deserves increase in his income. Then whether it is essential commodity or not, it does not matter. Another important aspect of this is that it is cumbersome for more than half of the people in India to sustain. But again "survival of fittest" is the correct analogy for this. Once is poor is not always poor. You need to cross the barricade and move with others. Other way i should say you will lag behind if you don't move fast and that is what is happening. In short none of the Govt. in the past lead to price rise by will. It is the facade of opposition to lure illiterate folks. Actually NDA should go through ablution before criticizing UPA. We should thank PM MMS and Congress Chairperson to give us good governance. I salute you and your pledge to save the country.Please join me in congratulating UPA for its noteworthy governance.
