Term 8 started today. I have to take 3 subjects this term. Have got 3 and am waitlisted in 1. So would have to choose 3 out of those 4 after sampling the classes today and tomorrow.
I had just one class to attend today – “Leadership Lessons from World Literature” by Prof. Rajeshwar Upadhyaya. As written by the professor in the introductory part of the course material, “To use some of the best-written books to cull out the meaning of leadership and our roles as professionals, is an overarching objective of this course”. I had chosen this course because I had been influenced quite a bit by Prof. Upadhyaya when he took the Leadership Development Program for us earlier in the core terms. He is a really good speaker. There were moments in today’s class when there was a pause for a few seconds between two lines that he spoke and I could actually hear the wall-clock ticking (I think it was the wall clock :-) ) as there was pin-drop silence then. People were listening intently to whatever he was saying. He is one professor to watch out for when you come to ISB. There is a very high chance that you will like him.
I have three classes to sample tomorrow which means that its going to be a really long day.
Just a little more than a month to go before my ISB stint comes to an end :-(
