This week is the last week for us in college. Next months starts external courses, as in we will be able to study some subjects which have no association to our BBA program. This lead to allot of last tests, assignments and presentation. For example I was awake last night to complete a assignment in risk management. Also, I got my groups presentation in social & cooperate entrepreneurship. That presentation will we hold today. Amazing, because I got presentation at 11 pm. Wish me all the best.
So, yesterday before I met my friend, I went to Hyatt to swim. The reason was, because of republic day Gold´s gym was not open. But also I felt I need a time for only me.
There for I went alone to Hyatt and swam for 1,5 hour till 3 kids families took over the pool.
May be one of the best part with Hyatt is they have jacuzzi.
After my hours in Hyatt, my whole body felt relax and just clam. Totally opposite to what I feel right now.
Right now I feel to go to a clam place, to a empty quiet beach with turquoise water and green palms. That beach I went to during stress management workshop in Symbiosis.
Today in Camp, I met up an old friend.
But before we met, I went to one of my favorite restaurant. If I remember right it is on 8-east street.
My biggest problem was I went alone to the place. To be alone mean wait for over to get a table. However, to get the table I needed to take away.
The food is amazing, really juicy and tasty.
Today is India’s republic day. So many people wear white kurtas. Anyone how knows why?
People are selling the flag of India on the streets. Stores have decorated with orange, white and green. My college had a function at 8 am -10 am. But of course I did not go, just like many others.
So, today has not been very special.
Last night one of my friends asked if I could sleep over in her room. The reason is she cannot sleep alone. My friend has a roommate, but her roommate is almost never in the room. The reason is she studying mass communication in Symbiosis.
In that college they have classes every day, also on Sundays. Monday-Saturday classes from 9 to 6/7 and assignments for the next day. If that not enough they have to use college bag and everyday they have to follow the dress code.
Is that not crazy, compare to Symbiosis center for management studies.
I can not believe sometimes I have been here for over 7 months. 7 Months is not the long, but still more then a half of a year. Which I have survived India, Pune and college with hostel life.
Many people have asked me why I went to India for studies.
Normally my answer is, I do not know anymore. I did have one perception of the education here, but now I have a totally opposite point of view.
I do not regret I came here, I am so glad I came back to India. The reasons are many I have study subjects which I would never study in Sweden, I have allot of time to focus on myself. I have picked up sketching, I have got a good habit of exercising every day and read books.
But I know when I get back to Sweden it will be hard to get use to all the studies and start to write proper papers. I know also it will be harder to give time to cook, clean (because in hostel we have workers to do that). Also, I can not wait to get back my “normal” life.
I can tell you this,I have already started to plan my new adventures, adventures which I can not wait to face. It will be so much fun!
Today a group hold a presentation in team. It was impossible to hear what they were talking about. That was not the biggest problem, it was the slides. On every slide they had so much text, for me it felt I was reading an essay.
This is what I would say a big problem in my college at least (probably in many other Indian colleges too). The students do not know how to hold a presentation. They just do not know how to do it, that they need to speak load, do not hide, read from the computer or the wall.
