We dedicate this post to the funnest “terminators” MICA has seen. We know PGP-16 was full of ‘em and then there’s PJComm and the evergreen picture terminations of Prateek Chhillar such as the one above. Disha’s point to be noted: “I only hope that when we move on from here, to our workplaces, at home, and in the real world at large, we are able to see...
Good bosses abuse employees in English. Bad bosses abuse employees in Hindi.– MICA Strategy Management and Supply Chain Management faculty, Venkatramanan Krishnamurthy, being candid on more than one occasion. (via greenteanchocolate)
Tum engineer hi toh ho. Usmein kya hai?– MICA PGP-18 student Kajri Saxena (engineer) to Shaili Desai (engineer) - The B-school refrain (via greenteanchocolate)
The path to PGP2 is full of "Lessons Learnt"
Reblogging an insightful but anonymous MICAn: Thank you for reminding us that the sun shines, always! Whoever you are, hope you keep writing =) i-am-a-big-girl-now: 1. Selfish people exist. 2. After getting over the shock of point number 1, really nice people do exist too. Look around, they are the ones you probably haven’t spoken too much if you were spending time with selfish people 3....

“Our rooms, as much as it may annoy people back home, are really like our own home. They are where our most special and most personal MICA memories happened. Some rooms were masterpieces, others were, well, a dangerous combination of excess paint and excess enthusiasm. And all of them were fun.” Could it have been said any better? And we did think it was imperative to include...
I used to work for a retail company. Their supply chain systems were very...– That’s a supply chain alright: MICA Strategy Management and Supply Chain Management faculty, Venkatramanan Krishnamurthy, after telling PGP1 about a real company problem that he was involved in. (via greenteanchocolate)
Race, like development, is a Janus-faced word. You never know which side you’re...– MICA FPM faculty, Dr. Somnath Zutshi, during a class on the evolution of racism (via greenteanchocolate)
Race is a mythical creature, like a unicorn. Hence, it is equally substantial.– MICA FPM faculty, Dr. Somnath Zutshi, during his class on the evolution of race (via greenteanchocolate)

Following up on Disha’s insights into the sport as essential to MICA’s wellbeing, a march day dedicated to Badminton. Also, as an erstwhile resident of Parijat 24, I vouch that baddy AND the chilling-around-the-baddy-court-at-all-hours-of-the-day-and-night noises are yet to leave the brain :/ comfortableawkwardness: This is not a sport. It is arguably the single, most important...
Wonderful. One year and 20 minutes late! Well done! That’s a new record.– MICA Strategy Management and Supply Chain Management faculty, Venkatramanan Krishnamurthy, when a PGP-2 student, Nitin Mohan Shandilya, walked in 20 minutes late to a PGP-1 class (via greenteanchocolate)
On Breaking Ice
Anonymous 1: What's with the new *** batch and all the Micamail spamming anyway?
Anonymous 2: They're just trying to blend in with PGP and become a part of the whole MICA scene.
Disha Pinge: Someone hand them a badminton racquet.
The thing about MICA is that it is extremely insidious. You never know when it...– Shrey Chakravorty, MICA PGP-18, being nostalgic (via greenteanchocolate)
Market Research is not rocket science. Unless you are researching about rockets.– MICA Marketing Research and Consumer Behaviour faculty, Rajneesh Krishna, during his oft occurring light moments (via greenteanchocolate)
Don't laugh. We are serious
arkor: We are taught to think strategically. We learnt to not get caught. We are taught to collaborate for optimal results. Our CGPAs are proof. We are taught to make business plans. The monkey business is to our own credit. We are encouraged to recreate. We learnt to relax deadlines. We are told to reflect laterally. Only our eye movement has caught on. We are taught to recognize politically...
31 days of MICA - (4th March, 2012) Micamail
Today Disha Pinge muses over the entity that leaves little time for one to muse over anything. Presenting MICA’s most compelling and addictive fixation: Micamail comfortableawkwardness: I wonder sometimes how MICA functioned before there was micamail. You can imagine MICA without any other single piece of infrastructure, except micamail. Even as you read this, many will have micamail open...
I (Heart) Culcomm!
A little bit of mush never hurt anyone. But we gotta admit Valentine’s Day is a bit of a bummer outside of MICA. This year it especially seems to have left some swooning, yes, Amrita Korwar? Btw, we <3 your post. Here goes: arkor: Is love really in the air a lot more this year or is it the effect of staying away from home that makes friends’ hearts grow fonder? Either way, for someone...
Off the walls - Of originality, art and identity
Making your private space your home holds a particularly enterprising meaning in MICA. It’s almost painful that these spaces exist as sand-clocks of another kind and must be wiped clean each year to accommodate new thoughts and expressions. They remain intact however, in their role as a conduit of the times that were, those that will come and those that are lived by the inhabitants even as...
31 days of MICA - (3rd March, 2012) Deadline...
Ahem. Let’s just say MICA has a universe of it’s own and it’s only natural that there will be a MICA Standard Time, yes? A perfect complement to this hilarious post by Disha is this sketch by Ankit Kalkar from PGP2. MICA deadlines seem to inspire all sorts of erm…work. comfortableawkwardness: ‘Deadline Extension’ are the words that make me refresh my micamail page every...
31 days of MICA: (2nd March, 2012) Chhota
In celebration of the newly stocked Chhota (Thank You Amitbhai) and in mourning of the one hour that Chhota was shut today for “maintenance” which led to frantic door-to-door begging of food, Disha Pinge presents: comfortableawkwardness: Chhota. That one small (quite literally) word that could describe my whole time here at MICA- every midnight conversation, every steaming cup of...
31 days of MICA by Disha Pinge: (1st March, 2012)...
PGP2 student Disha Pinge, an artist, a wordsmith, creator of all sorts of things and to-be Brand Strategy Associate writes about her last one month in MICA. Stay tuned for #31daysofMICA. comfortableawkwardness: I dedicate this post to whose birthday happened to fall on this day- Neha Kulkarni. Neha is one of the people who make MICA what it is for me. She is probably the most understatedly...
