Summers and winters

As winter gains ascendance over Lucknow, it was time for summer placements on campus for the last few days. It was, as usual, a busy time for both batches - the PGP1's getting placed and the PGP2's conducting the entire process. I had my share of running around to do. But it had its positive aspects, two of which were: getting to know many more people of the junior batch in a short time; and observing the behaviour of people coming here from various industries and companies. From an observation of the latter, it becomes clear how pervasive 'corporate culture' is: an example comes from two leading firms in the FMCG industry in India, whose people behaved in totally different ways - one aggressive and demanding (perhaps overly so), the other more friendly and accommodating.
