Mumbai it is

Wanted to mention this here for a long time now... here I go.

I've gotten placed in Atos Origin, Bombay division as a consultant. Right now, I'm pretty thrilled with the profile et all. This experience was very, very unlike my summer placement experience. But all that later! :)

Anyway, looks like Mumbai it is. I was telling everyone a month ago that I would ideally avoid cities like Mumbai and Delhi, but I guess I liked the job profile so much that I had to take the offer. Plus the fact that Atos is still small in India and has a presence only in Bombay left me without other-city options.

In all, it was a pretty neat close to 2005. With this... it's the beginning of the end, what with just under 50 days left before we pass out. It's complete wrapping-up time - classes are few and far and my other official responsibilities here (as IT club Secy etc) would also get over in about 10 days. What's left is lots and lots of time to ponder over. I'm planning a quick vacation somewhere to Rajasthan and later to Munnar. In the meantime, Chandoo is asking me to squeeze in a biking expedition somewhere in the middle. Let's see how it works out.

Again, all the best everyone for a great 2006. It sure looks like a great year, atleast for B-schoolers.
