The elusive idea called MBA

Master of Business Administration degree is something I was looking forward to learn ever since I got the bachelors degree in engineering. I am pretty sure that I wont become a master of business administration even if I complete the course. But people say that the learning process that happens in B-Schools groom you to face successfully the onslaught of events in your business career.

I was asked to pay Rs 42 for kshetra pinda karmam, Thilahomam in the name of the deceased and an ashtothara archana in the name of me. Then I did the

I took Duplicate Driving Licence from the same RTO in 2008.Now I have been postponing the efforts to take duplication voters id card due to various reasons. One election came in between and election people were giving duplicates but I didn’t went. Now local body election happens in Kerala.
