My First Guest Lecture!!!!!!

It gives me immense delight to write down the following stuff. As we rewind back 3 years from today that is in the year 2006 I never imagined of whatever, wherever I am today. The fire was there but it was just as lost as I was. What to do, how to do, when to do, I had no clue. My career took a radical shift once I joined Indira, Pune for MBA in Marketing. Those two years are the best phase of my life where I learnt the actual meaning of my existence, I found, I understood, I learnt my limitations and strengths and I worked harder than ever. All the hard work of those two years has paid off. I received a call from my college. They wanted me to deliver a guest lecture to the new batch that joined recently in the month of July. I took some time to think and then I called them back and gave an affirmative answer. 10 hours is what it took for me to create the presentation for this batch. I decided to speak on the importance of personality traits to succeed in MBA and hence in life. A batch of 240 students was supposed to attend the session in two slots of 120 each. I doubted my capabilities of speaking for 3 hours as told by the management to me. However, to my surprise I actually had to cut short few topics and managed to finish it off in 3.5 hours. It was an awesome experience to be on the other side of the class for the first time in my life. I thought this would be the first and also the last time for me to deliver a lecture to students. However, with the response that I got from students I understood that I had done a decent job and I am sure I would be doing this stuff again, and again, and again…..
