Types of Class Participants

1) ROI Types – These are ‘serious’ people. Always worried about the Return on Investment (ROI) of fees paid for MBA. Very aggressively prepared for class discussions. They ask lots of questions and react to all justifications given by professors with a ‘No but…’

2) TNH Types – There is No Hurry (dude). Exams ke time dekh lenge. Seniors se guidance le lenge..

3) CNY Types – Chod Na Yaar..what’s the point is all this high-funda kitabi gyaan…life is all about getting things done. Text book stuff…let us have fun in class.

4) CPA Types – CP addicts… Extra bit of humility with Profs…Sir aap aa gaye..nice shirt sir…kal dikhe nahi…I came to your cabin trice yesterday…

5) PPA Types –  Private Planning in Action…they will be thinking of life after 5.30 pm. Often totalling expenses of last night’s party, estimating cost of next trip to Goa or calculating total of internet top-ups made in previous month or anything that keeps them busy…

6) LHS Types – Life Here is Sick. I wish I was not undergoing all this pain…Mera koi mood nahi tha MBA ka..now I am stuck..just hoping to get out of all this…

7) TBG Member Types – Tali Bajao Group…these people will be seen in library slogging all night for additional courses like cFA but in class they wish to appear cool…they will poke fun, do slow clapping, crack a joke and laugh aloud alone…to prove a point..look I’m not as nerdy as you think!

8) OMG Types – Oh My God..they get startled about any new concept discussed by prof. Anything excites them. Dairy Milk, a 110 year old brand is now taken over by Kraft Foods…such emotional statements can make them cry…

9) MOS Types – Mad over Socializing (Whatsapp/Facebook/Twitter) Types – They enjoy that special pleasure of hiding the device under a book/desk and reading every update. to them sending a LOL is more fun actually laughing over a good joke in class..

10) QSQT Types – Finally these are some blessed souls in nirvana mode. QSQT stand for Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak..they are in love… singing Pehla nasha pehla khumar…they look at the PPT but beyond the board …into the gardens..flying like birds..they have found their first crush..and they don’t really exist inside the class…they are walking hand in hand…somewhere in wonderland.

What Say, Been there? Done that?
