Happenings

Just a few developments that I am noting for the record:

  • Academics are very light this term, but very interesting nevertheless. Management of Financial Services being a very practical course, International Finance having great intrinsic interest value and ERP having value in the lateral placements and being important otherwise too, the going is good so far.
  • Lateral placements start next week and some time has been spent in thinking about where to apply, in looking up information on companies and in actually applying.
  • After-dinner hours have recently been devoted to sports as an inter-class sports tournament is on based on the first-year class distribution. Old section loyalties have awoken and the competition has been good.
  • The cold has intensified in the last few days, largely unaccompanied by fog. This morning there was a heavy fog but it dispersed very quickly.
  • I completed another P. G. Wodehouse book - 'Jeeves and the Feudal Spirit'. It shares quite a lot, perhaps too much, with 'The Code of the Woosters', in terms of the plot, the roles of different characters, the situations, etc. Some excellent uses of the language fetch good laughs, but still the latter is much the better work.
  • The power situation has been abysmal here for the last few days. The computer is bearing the brunt of sudden and frequent power outages.
