Reporting from ISB

Home @ ISB: We have now moved both physically and mentally to ISB. This will remain our Home for the next 12 months. I hope to be able to make best use of the resources here to improve myself. Let me see how far I will go on the ‘improvement meter’.

Lost in the crowd: People say two is company; three is crowd. What do you say when there are about 320 people. I have never in my life been amongst so many people. My first reaction to this – I am lost.

LRC: The learning resource centre (read library) at ISB is simply quite amazing. It could not get better. I have access to plethora of database and information (all e-access). It is important not to get lost and lose focus. Read what is important and relevant.

Recreation: This is a good place. There is a variety of offerings from swimming pool to squash court. I will have to figure out what I can or need to do here. Will I be able to learn swimming here at least?

Laptop: is now an integral part of my being. You can rarely spot me with this and me separated.

Wi-fi: ISB is a wi-fi spot. Cool. I have asked Airtel to disconnect my GPRS connection.

No need to go to gym: From my experience during the last two days, I can say that I am going to walk at least 3-4 kilometers a day in the campus. Moving from one building to another is pretty long. Add the weight of laptop to it. I really don’t have to go to the gym to burn calories.


PS: Too early to write about people here. Since there are many of them, it will be a while before I know the names, types and my-types. But rest assured, there are a lot of types which as a student of human behavior I will be glad to observe and report.
