You're Not Transformed Yet


As you wrap up your last class, submission and exam – this year is not yet over. Not until, aside from the life in denial, the transformation is complete.

I remember before I accepted my admission offer, there were friends who mentioned that I should’ve applied to schools outside the country, as ISB was on a growth spree – while in ranking, but more specifically in its intake year-on-year. There were arguments against the quality of the institute’s churn out as well as against its placement focused, rat-race culture. I was told that I probably settled while I could shoot higher – all personal opinion, mind you. And I walked in with thinning hair but thickening confidence.

Within a week, the fellow Chartered Accountants seemed more accomplished; the engineers definitely smarter. And why wouldn’t they when it’s expected for CAs to be math geeks while the JEE experienced ace at financial equations.

I hope my conceitedness can be forgiven for I thought I could walk into this institution and rule it for having settled for something in India rather than moving farther from home, whereas my classmates would be those for whom this was a dream come true. It’s a pity how far some of us can imagine ourselves from reality.

Now, what would you do but transform when your bubble of self-assurance bursts. This year, as many of our alums mentioned during the O-Week, is a humbling experience. You’re amidst a pack of doyens, ready to sprint and grab what you’ve laid your heart on while you trot on a Jaipur foot. Or Delhi foot, or Bombay – coming from cities where egos inflate with small achievements.

The year was tough to begin with: a feeling of loneliness, never-before-experienced competitiveness and given by a few instances at the squash court, head-breaking if not cut-throat competition. It took months to figure out how this world works, cracking case-studies, making resumes, attending interviews and running calculations of ROI – like it’s so easy to put a percentage on experience.

We’ve seen brave-hearts with GPA 4 rejected by companies by the dozen and party-planners get the highest of packages. And then we’ve found ourselves in the middle somewhere – either with changed career paths or hands folded in gratitude for being blessed with a job-profile that we think we were only lucky to bag.

We’ve all humbled through the year, as most of us will claim on our way out. However, it’s important to remember that true humility is not a result of undervaluation of one’s talents and accomplishments. It differs from a phase of dealing with relatively low self-confidence. We’ve been in an environment for a year that put us amidst the smartest bunch of 900 we can possibly never find ourselves in again. The world outside will have a more rich portfolio of skills, abilities and talents – not all of which we may have learned to appreciate in whatever degree they present themselves in.

Maybe, the test of our true humility will be when we realize that anyone else we interact with may have probably done better or at least just as well as we may have, had they found the same opportunities for growth as all of us were lucky enough to find not just at ISB, but even before and much after.

With this, we’re almost ready to sign off, knowing that we were definitely blessed to have been a part of this cohort. We leave with dreams to fly, to achieve much more than what we thought we could before coming to the Indian School of Business. Among all these hopes should be the dream to create platforms for others to achieve – for hopefully, that would be the mark of the true to its core, humble leaders from the PGP Class of 2017. The test of transformation awaits.

**********

This piece was addressed to the PGP (MBA) Class of 2017 at the Indian School of Business on 31st March, 2017 - a week before their convocation.

  3. Hello everyone out there, I'm here to share my unexpected miracle
    that had happened to me through the help of Dr OKHUELEGBE. I was happily
    married with two kids, we lived together as one because we both
    loved each other. All of a sudden, my husband started acting funny
    and started keeping late night. I took out time to know what was actually going on and realized that he was cheating on me. Later on, he told me that he cannot continue with
    me, i even pleaded with him but he never listened. The worst part of it was that he left me and my two kids with noting to hold on to. But there
    was nothing i could do to stop him or bring him back to me. I work so
    hard to pay the kids school fees and other responsibilities for good
    three years. I cry all day and night because I didn't know what to do
    to have my husband back to me until this fateful day I read the post
    from one Mrs Victoria testifying how the great spell caster helped her
    to get her ex back. I just wanted to try my luck because I never
    believe it will work but i said let me give it a try. I contacted the great spell caster and he told me not to worry that my husband will return to me in no distance time after he must have finished casting the spell, that i will get back my
    husband . The unbelievable happened on Sunday when I got a call and I
    was so surprised to hear my husband’s voice apologizing to me that he is so
    sorry for all his Wrong did, telling me he is coming back home to fix all the pains and hardship he brought upon me. wow!!! I really appreciated the great work of DR. OKHUELEGBE. I will always acknowledge your "FABULOUS WORKS" and there is
    noting i could say than to tell the whole world about my miracle. So, if anyone is
    out there reading this post and you have similar issue like this, worry
    no more Dr. OKHUELEGBE is there for you, he can also offer any type of
    help like Reuniting of marriage and relationship, Curing of genital
    herpes and all types of Diseases, Court Cases, Pregnancy Spell,
    Spiritual protection and lot's more. You can contact him on

  7. Hi My name is "BEKAR JOE" I was married for 15years with lilian. things started getting ugly and we had fights and arguments almost every time... it got worse at a point that she filed for divorce... I tried my best to make her change her mind & stay with me.she moved out of the house and still went ahead to file for divorce... I pleaded and tried everything but still nothing worked. The breakthrough came when someone introduced me to this wonderful, great spell caster who eventually helped me out... I have never been a fan of things like this but just decided to try reluctantly cause I was desperate and left with no choice... He did special prayers and used roots and herbs... Within 2 days she called me and was sorry for all the emotional trauma she had cost me, she moved back to the house and we continue to live happily. what a wonderful miracle Dr Brown did for me and my family. I have introduced him to a lot of couples with problems across the world and they have had good news... I strongly believe someone out there need's his help.{ drjoebroken48hours@gmail.com} or Whatsapp him ( +2348132557027 )so make extra effort to save your marriage/relationship if it's truly worth it

  13. Testimony By Lizzy Desler. How to get your ex back fast!

    I was hurt and heart broken when a very big problem occurred in my marriage seven months ago, between me and my husband . so terrible that he took the case to court for a divorce. he said that he never wanted to stay with me again,and that he didn't love me anymore. So he packed out of the house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get him back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and he confirmed it that he has made his decision,and he never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband .So i explained every thing to him,so he told me that the only way i can get my husband back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for him too. So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow his advice. Then he gave me the Email address of the spell caster whom he visited. Pristbacasim2000@gmail.com. So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address he gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my husband back the next day. What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me, and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my husband who didn't call me for the past 7 months, gave me a call to inform me that he was coming back. So Amazing!! So that was how he came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and he apologized for his mistake,and for the pain he caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster.

  15. I recently saw a testimony about a spell caster of some sort, i saw
    the testimony in a blog I visited for relationship and dating
    counseling because i have been having serious issues with my husband
    and we have been married for six months, he just suddenly changed, he
    started cheating, he was hurting me in so many ways i never thought it
    was possible for him to change and be good again, and I just thought I
    should contact the spell caster, maybe i tried it out of desperation
    of some sort, and I contacted him. At first everything felt dreamy
    and unbelievable, the consultations was strange and I was scared a
    little cos I have read and heard lots of stories of fake spell
    casters, scams and i never really believed in magic. So i played along
    with a little hope and faith, so he asked me to send him sum things
    which he said will help in preparing the spell and i did, when he
    finished the spell he sent some few stuffs to me after he has
    prepared it, and to my greatest surprise it worked like a miracle!
    everything went to a new direction, it was and it's amazing, my
    husband started loving me the way i can't explain... I guess it was
    all because of the good faith that made me read That particular post
    that faithful day..I hope he could help other people too like he
    did to me...I did a little and I got everything I wanted and wished
    for. You too can receive help from this great spell caster because he
    told me that he can help in any problem. You too can contact him via: moonlightspellhome@gmail.com
