APAD: The Last one

Conversations, stories, (gallons of) Chai, running, offsetting all those burnt calories by a heavy intake of unsaturated fats (disguised as the choicest of sweets)…yes, I’m in India.. …and despite some NYC (and coffee) withdrawals, it feels good to be back! Being back also means, this is going to be my last APAD. While it got … Continue reading

APAD #NYC: turnaround

In a few hours I’ll be on a plane back to India, probably peering through a similar view from the window and thinking about the past four months… If I think about it, there’s so much that happened and that I experienced in this time, yet, it all seems like a blur!

Now that the semester is officially over and everyone from the business school is seeking shelter in the comfort of their homes with family and friends, coffee&conversations were the last thing on my mind when I walked into Watson last time.

APAD #NYC: Let’s go Nets!

First NBA game. The Amazing Barclays Center. Awesome company. A close finish. Could this get any better?*  *to answer my own rhetorical question, The Brooklyn Nets could have won..that would have been awesome

APAD #NYC: Anybody can cook…

..especially ‘ratatouille’ It’s farewell time already (Mark left, Am’s leaving soon, so are most of the other people at the business school)..and what better way to spend the last few days than cook a nice little meal together! Of course, the fact that it was snowing outside made hanging indoors a more attractive proposition! (not … Continue reading
