"The Special Week"

"The Special Week"


April 03, 2018: "The Beginning"

This was one of the most interesting days of my life as it carried a lot of love in it. As the day started, I was concerned about completing my pending tasks and was bit worried about how to get them done on time. Luckily, I was able to use my time wisely throughout the day. The experiences of the day taught me the following lessons.
Things I Learned Today:
  1. Those unforgettable moments you spend with your loved ones will never go wasted. (P.S. The Special Tuesday)
  2. You must avoid premature conclusions in order to improve your relationships.
  3. You begin to waste your time when you are unclear about your actions and the time associated with them. (P.S. Starting a Product and Brand Management Assignment)
  4. Your team members may misunderstand you if you do not make it clear that you will also contribute to the task to the best of your abilities. (P.S. Making a Presentation for Scamania)
  5. That one moment when you cannot concentrate on anything else once you are accused for not doing the task in hand.

April 04, 2018: "The Event 'Scamania'"

Interestingly, this was the first time, we were going to participate in an event as a team and therefore, winning or losing was not the matter of thought as sharing the stage together was going to be one of the best moments of all time and I was genuinely waiting for the same from a very long time. This was the day when I attended the least lectures but was still very productive since morning. Right from 8:20 a.m. till 5 p.m. excluding three lectures, I had been working on the presentation for the event 'Scamania' along with my team mate who also left few lectures to work together for this event.
Things I Learned Today:
  1. You must let go some of your routine tasks to achieve something bigger in your life. (P.S. Leaving Lectures for Scamania)
  2. That amazing moment when you solve the sum so accurately that you get an opportunity to explain it to the whole class. (P.S. Operations Research Tutorial)
  3. Life becomes beautiful when your partner begins to believe in your capabilities and appreciates you for your hard work. (P.S. "You are very hardworking", she said.)
  4. That heart touching moment when your partner realizes by herself about how you felt when she misunderstood you. (P.S. Apologies for yesterday)
  5. It's hard to find a partner who is well deserving and feel fortunate to be with you but it's even more beautiful when you find one. (P.S. Thank you God)
  6. Even though when you don't win a competition, you still learn something more worthy, i.e. the art of self-assessment, through which you come to know about where you stand at present and what you need to improve in yourself.
  7. That amazing moment when people appreciate you for your efforts and your partner feels proud of it.

April 05, 2018: "The Day of 'Workshop at Internship'"

After 'Scamania', it was the day when I was supposed to interact with some of the MBA first year students at "Workshop for Internship". I was bit nervous and bit excited because this was one of the first chances when I was going to have an interaction session with them. In addition, I was supposed to submit my assignment before 5 p.m. on which I kept working since morning. Thanks to Angad, I was able to complete it on time by working on it throughout the day. While working on the assignment, I realized that a lot can be done in just one hour as well.

During the internship workshop, I was one of the resource persons but I was still not ready with any prepared speech rather I decided to let it go with the flow. Thankfully, everything went quite well and the audience was really happy with the inputs provided by me and other seniors as well. 
Things I Learned Today:
  1. Sometimes, it's hard to determine whether your information was delivered to the required person on call or not.
  2. That amazing moment when you get proper mental support of your partner even when she is unable to help you in any physical task. (P.S. Product and Brand Management Assignment)
  3. It feels awesome when you finish your pending tasks before the end of deadline. (P.S. Assignment submission at 4:50 p.m.)
  4. The best way to share your knowledge is to enjoy the act of sharing it.

  6. That amazing moment when you see a sense of pride, for you, in the eyes of a person you love.
  7. Your support means a lot to your loved ones and it feels even more amazing when they count on you if they ever need any assistance.
  8. Sometimes, we tend to postpone our decisions but it may hurt us in the end if it's too late. (Lesson Credits: Roli)
  9. It is very important to keep your partner motivated, because this is the only situation when they will be willing to give more love to you.

April 06, 2018: Finance Conclave 2018 - Day - 1

During my journey towards the university, I had a small chat with Angad in which I expressed my intentions to work as a coordinator in the Finance Conclave if required. To my surprise, he was having an opportunity for me which finally landed up with an opportunity to coordinate the session in SDMA auditorium in Lovely Professional University. 
The Finance Conclave began with the speech of Honourable Chancellor Sir, Mr. Ashok Mittal in which he discussed the parameters of NIRF ranking as LPU scored the 38th rank in the same. Later in the day, Mr. Jim addressed the audience with his speech in which he encouraged us to be a DFO i.e. Digital Financial Officer instead of just  Financial Officer. In addition, he also mentioned that the purpose of business is not to create jobs but to get their jobs done.
All in all, Things I Learned Today:
  1. Some opportunities knock our door while others, we have to create by ourselves. (P.S. Being a coordinator at Finance Conclave)
  2. Two things are really necessary; Adaptability and Quick Learning. (Lesson Credits: Mr. Vinesh Singh, Vice President, Sara Soule)
  3. You may easily get chance to go against ethics but that doesn't mean you should. (P.S. Allowing a student to go out)
  4. That awesome moment when you get chance to spend quality time with your loved ones. (P.S. Pharmacy after Conclave)

April 07, 2018:  Finance Conclave 2018 - Day - 2

It's funny that I started my day with anger but gradually everything began to become special in every way. Everything I did today, added some value to my experiences. Today, I presented one of my research papers in the Finance Conclave 2018 at Lovely Professional University. It was an eye opener for me as it was quite challenging and added enough value to my perspective. In addition, for the first time, I watched a movie, with a friend, for the first time which really helped us to create a very good memory.
Things I Learned Today:
  1. My heart began to gain confidence in me when it realizes that there is someone who believes in my capabilities and supports what I do. (P.S. Her presence in 402)
  2. That awkward moment when people try to put themselves up by only proving others wrong.
  3. It feels good when all your fears begin to sink at the moment you realize that you are good enough to get the assigned task done.
  4. It isn't a good idea to panic so quickly in any unwanted situation. (P.S. Leaving 402 for a while)
  5. That amazing moment when the person prefers you over sleep. (P.S. Watching 'Me Before You' together)
