Term 1 learnings

I had an “Aha” moment today. I read this article and understood it on the first attempt.

To do or Not to do

Does it seem like an easy one? Really! Well that is the first thing I learned at school – trade-offs. Humanely it is impossible to do everything – time is the constraint. I wish I did not have to make these trade-offs, and yes I mean it. IIM Calcutta is a place where you would love to do it all. If there were no studies my wish list will be – birds (real birds, I am married guys) watching, fishing in the lakes and spending lazy afternoons reading a book under the shades of the numerous trees. But for us who have a lot of stake in this program are making the trade-off. We are trying hard to keep up with the work load which unlike the economy shows no signs of downturn.

(For the skeptics who think I am lying here is the proof. That’s Booksjust the reading material and books. The scale you see in

the image is 12 inches. Assignments exams and quizzes extra. This the stuff is for a terms’ study – usually about 1.5 months)

Well that all the economics I know as on this day. Next class we learn demand and supply; and maybe I will cook up a different recipe.
