Mastishk Interview

     On last Wednesday and Thursday, I had my first forum interview. I had earlier skipped committees and wanted to join only those forums where my skills would be utilized properly. Mastishk was one of them. I had earlier worked on an online gaming contest, i.e. VJTI’s very own Virtual Stock Market.

     First interview was more technical, was much better than the second one. The second wasn’t bad actually. Just that I could not answer some “why?”. For e.g. “Why you didn’t apply for committees?”. They even tried to stress interview me, by telling me that I wont be able to study in August as I would be coding for Mastishk and might have to miss quizzes in the classes (implying zero in class test). I was really confused at that moment. But hey, I am a Naruto fan, and even I don’t know when to give up. I kept saying that I would be able to manage it. They even said that it might affect my summer internship. Finally, at the end of the interview they clarified that they were lying about the whole “You wont be able to study” thing.

     Results are still not out. Hoping for the best!!!

P. S.: Results were not out by the time I wrote this post, but I got the news that I could not make it to the final team. No worries though :) I would be able to participate (and win) in Mastishk now :D

Raja Shivchhatrapati Lyrics

इंद्र जिमि जंभ पर… बाडव सुअंभ पर… रावण सदंभ पर… रघुकुलराज है !
पौन बारिबाह पर… संभु रतिनाह पर… ज्यों सहसबाह पर… राम द्विजराज है !
उदरात माउली… रयतेस साउली… गडकोट राउळी… शिवशंकर हा
मुक्तीची मंत्रणा… युक्तीची यंत्रणा… खल दुष्टदुर्जना… प्रलयंकर हा
संतास रक्षितो… शत्रू निखंदतो… भावंडभावना… संस्थापितो
ऐसा युगेयुगे… स्मरणीय सर्वदा… माता-पिता-सखा… शिवभूप तो
दावा दृमदंड पर… चीता मृगझुंड पर… भूषन वितुंड पर… जैसे मृगराज है !
तेज तम‍ अंस पर… कान्ह जिमि कंस पर… त्यों मलिच्छ बंस पर… सेर सिवराज है !
जय भवानी, जय शिवाजी !Thanks to Nik for sending this.In case any of you want to read the whole poem you can visit this link.


Finally gave the last exam which I had targeted in the year 2010. It took me 7 months to give my first NCFM exam. But soon got into study mode for rest of the exams. I guess toughest of them all was "Investment Analysis & Portfolio Management”. The last one – “Derivatives Dealers Module” was also tough because I had lost the momentum in between as I participated in lot of Operations Simulation Games with no touch of Finance during that one and a half month period. Now, I am proud NCMP Level 3!!!


It feels really frustrating sometimes. What is the point of being the so called sincere guy in class, the “nine" pointer guy when your parents are worried about how much time you spend on TV serials and movies in hostel!
