#MyInternTheory of Life

Life is very challenging in the multinational companies and it becomes very difficult for young college boy to understand the situation and manipulate the situations to stay ahead of the game. The only answer is to get use to pressure situations and key problems by going through the stage of internship. Internship teaches you thing which cannot be experienced in college or through books. Companies are always looking for candidates who are ready to work and they have perception that the candidate coming out of college is ready to perform on the big stage where margins of errors are very less and there are too high expectations. Companies hire candidates and give them huge salaries and so they want the talent who have undergone practical training through internship.

Internship for me was part of my career and growth curve. My internship first day was kind of hell for me. It was raining and weather was windy. I reached the office and my clothes were already wet and peon guided me to my manager who was already waiting for me for more than thirty minutes. It was all screwed up and I had perception that he may knock me out of the project on the first day itself. I was nervous and very anxious during that moment but situation was completely different. The manager told me to just relax and be calm. He told to be having some coffee and gave me time to settle for the moment. I found the manager very supportive and took off all the pressure from me and understood my situation. It was his attitude and down to earth nature that made me understand about real life problems while working in the big company and how we should act to think of the solution to the problem.

I had to choose a project topic and I decided that my interest is more in marketing and branding. It is more towards finding about the consumer perception about the brands and its key gaps which leads to building the right strategy to build the brand. It was my luck that my professor also approved my project topic and he really played a key role in guidance, monitoring and encouragement throughout the project. I was given the chance to work under the marketing head of the company to find analyzed and understand the consumer perception. The project helped me to create awareness about company products and matching it with consumer choice trends.

#MyInternTheory

College education is not complete without working or taking the internship in any firm or company. It forms part of the partial fulfilment for the award of the degree at the end of the course. During the short internship programme had chance to implement my book learning to the practical applications. It also gave the perception to me about how the organisation functions are carried out and performed by people and what problems comes and role of managers and decision makers. I did many mistakes in that period but my senior was really patient with me and taught me everything ignoring my mistakes. He told me about corporate culture and dealing with people and office politics.I got to know so much things about good and bad things which can happen to you in the job.

As a part of project activity many office tasks were performed by me and it included checking the balance sheets, vouchers and cash receipt from different clients and vendors.I had to work from the ground up and working with labour and front line sales people.It was all about adjusting to reality where people work with team and do their work.I was told to co-ordinate with warehouse department for regular supply of material and inventory checking and then talking with the factory manager for stock update.This went for first few days and then I shifted to sales department which was more of my interest.I had to visit the market and meet the dealers and clients and build up the relationship with them for business development and growth.It was field operations job and one had to be active all time.All this work  was a great and memorable pleasure time for me and it honestly made me more strong and bold interacting with people from different field.I also gave my feedback about problems in the warehouse and how it can be detected early and treated to prevent wastage and cost reduction.

The idea about internship is really about learning and nothing else.I was not paid for my internship but still it made me a better person in life.Today students often want to know about the money and other benefits before taking the intership offer which is not bad at all but must see about the organisation and will it be benefit for them in the future or not.Overall Internship is excellent way to know about the working environment and taking the decision whether you have interest in that particular job and if it matches your passion.

Jungle Jungle Pata Chala hai

I feel the childhood days are back whenever I get a chance to hear the famous title song of the movie “Jungle Jungle Pata Chala hai”.My heart wants to sing that song and it gives me goose bumps and I want to be like a child and singing it at the top of my voice. This song which does not have any logic but still connected to every child born in that era when we had very few cartoons and having a television was a luxury for us.

I remember my father brought me a jungle book and gifted me on my birthday when I was a little kid which was with me for many years and it was quite a precious gift for me at that time. I would watch the Mowgli cartoon and Jungle show on doordharshan with my cousin every sunday.We would love and cheer up when Mowgli which was my favourite character would help the wild animals and jump on the trees and fight out to become hero in the end. I still admire him the most and I still remember his fights with the lion named Shere Khan.Mowgli brave nature and his activeness would make me attract to him and I would try to act like him at times and make my hair comb similar to Mowgli.I would also play the Jungle story in my room with my friend and they would act like Baloo and Bagheera and we would play for hours. I would wish to climb the trees and be close to nature and do things like him. I also once asked my mother to give me a boomerang similar in Jungle book cartoon that I would carry to the school.

I still love to watch this story again on YouTube with my nephew as it does not come on television right now. It is Mowgli heroics moves and his love for animals and caring nature which I want to show to my nephew so that he can understand the importance of nature and animals in this world. It was quite a wish that I wanted to watch this movie “Jungle Jungle Pata Chala hai” for a long time on big screen and this happened only after so many years that I would be able to revive my Jungle and Mowgli move again. I am so much excited to see the fight with Shere Khan and friendship relationship of Mowgli again and it will be a great treat for me.
