D‚j… Vu?

I am an optimist by nature. Always convinced that tomorrow will be better than today. That is, except for one thing. Observing French politics in recent years, I must admit that I have surprised myself by losing hope. Wherever my eyes would turn, whichever politician I would talk to, I would always have a sense…

HBS Making a Difference in Rural India

Over the winter break, I went with 99 HBS students and partners on the India Trek. While the trip was filled with very interesting and fun experiences, one stop on our tour stood out from the rest – our trip to the Rajugella village. My words won’t do the story justice, but try to picture…

Aldrich Hall Renovation Chilling Lesson in Failures of Communism

In a move that has sent shock-waves through business schools everywhere, HBS administrators have boldly extended the “case-method” of instruction to include the “building fit-out” method of instruction. “Given that the age of the average HBS student has recently fallen from 27 to 16, we figure that many of the RCs weren’t alive when communism…

(Aldrich 304) Following eight months of relative obscurity in the ranks of Section X, international student Juanita Perez was suddenly given the floor in last week’s BGIE class. “While I realize that Juanita was only about four years old when the Mexican debt crisis occurred, I thought I’d give her the chance to speak on…

Absolut-ly Fabulous!

When I got my admission into HBS, my biggest worry was how I would fit in with the rest of the student body. I dreaded going to class everyday with people who believed they were masters of the universe and the rest of the world was supposed to worship the ground they walked on. I…

Cricket:

As my well-tanned fellow classmates were making their way back last Sunday from Costa Rica, I spent the hours of 2.30-9.30am in front of a TV at MIT. Why, you might ask? Insomnia? Jet-lag?

Something Rotten in Denmark

A disturbing battle has been taking place within the RC sections, one that threatens the freedom of self-expression and ultimately the very existence of the free world.
