Well, the PGPX bullet-train hurtles along and I find myself barely hanging from a footboard trying desperately to stay aboard. There are 10 subjects in the very 1st term, each of them coming at you with an average of 8 cases, 2 quizzes, 5 submissions, and 1 end-term exam. While pursuing studies is the primary concern, I don’t want my life to become uni-dimensional and hence try to keep myself involved with extra-curricular activities as well. I equate this to fulfilling both my blatant and latent needs, and talking about needs, here are a few others described a bit more.
|Activity||Blatant Need||Latent Need|
|Media Rep activities||Contributing to overall PGPX marketing||Getting fellow student Manoj Khare a role in some “Saas-Bahu” serial|
|Morning Walks||Reduce the paunch||Want the toothpaste froth to fall directly in the sink and not on the tummy|
|Music, Song & Dance stuff||Reduce stress, enjoy peer company||Giving Kumar Sanu a run for his money|
|Meddling with food menu in the PGPX mess||Getting healthier and more palatable food||Obtaining systemic power to stop the damn server from snatching my plate away mid-meal|
|Gym||Getting into shape||Avoid getting into a bigger spherical shape|
|Managing the PGPX blog||Contributing towards PGPX Branding||Outlet for creative juices and itchy finger relief|
|Sports – cricket & TT||Physical activity||Taking out frustration of bad grades by hitting the ball|
Signing off with the hope that the study-load will not exceed what it already is , and that there will be adequate time and opportunites this year, to fulfill both my set of needs!
