'Inside Edge 3': Tanuj Virwani reminisces about classic India-Pakistan matches of 90s

Mumbai, Nov 25 | The new season of ‘Inside Edge’ has bowled over the audience with its trailer. The trailer shows Tanuj Virwani’s character of star cricketer ‘Vayu Raghavan’ who wants to polish his game further to become a strong contender for the Indian team’s captaincy.

As an India vs Pakistan clash becomes the most awaited contest in the show leading to stakes becoming higher for everyone who is involved in it, Tanuj takes a walk down memory lane and reminisces about an era gone by.

Recollecting the high-voltage contests of India vs Pakistan from the 1990s, Tanuj says, “Growing up, no matter where in the world an India vs Pakistan match was being played, I would watch it. You know, in those days, the Sahara Cup was hosted in Toronto. The time difference between Canada and India meant that the matches would continue into the early hours of the morning.”

“Sometimes, I would be awake till 6 a.m. Even though I had school the next day, I wouldn’t sleep a wink throughout the night because I was passionate about the game and would be thoroughly engaged in watching it on TV. In fact, I would don a helmet, cricketing gear and paint my face in the tricolour. I would go to school the next day despite having kept awake the night before (sic).”

With Season 3 of ‘Inside Edge’ looking better than ever, this time the game is going to be more special and thrilling as the third season will factor in the format of Test cricket turning it into the battleground for cricketers, the board controlling the game as well as the betting and match-fixing mafia.

‘Inside Edge’ Season 3 created by Karan Anshuman will stream exclusively on Prime Video from December 3.

Does MBA really help in getting a better job offer ?

Does MBA really help in getting a better job offer ?

Most students pursuing an MBA come with the sole objective of having a decent job offer or a promotion in the existing job soon after completion of the MBA. And most of them take loans to pursue this career dream. According to a recent survey by education portal Campusutra.com  74% MBA 2022-24 aspirants said they would opt for education loans.

There are exceptional cases like those seeking master’s degree or may have a family business to take care of or an entrepreneurial venture in mind. But the exception cases are barely 1%. For the rest 99%, a management degree is a ticket to a dream job through campus placements or leap towards career enhancements. Stakes are high as many of them quit their jobs which essentially means loss of 2 years of income, apprehension and uncertainty of the job market. On top of that, the pressure to pay back the education loans. Hence the returns have to be high. There is more than just the management degree. Colleges need to ensure that they offer quality management education which enables them to be prepared for not just the demands of recruiters and for a decent job but also to sustain and achieve, all along their career path.

  • So, what exactly are the B Schools doing to prepare their students for the job market and make them industry ready ?
  •  Are B schools ready to deliver and prepare the future business leaders to cope up with the disrupted market ?  

These are the two key questions every MBA aspirant needs to ask, check and validate before filling the MBA application forms of management institutes. And worth mentioning that these application forms do not come cheap. An MBA aspirant who may have shortlisted 5 B Schools to apply for, may end up spending Rs 10,000.00 to Rs 15,000.00 just buying MBA / PGDM application forms.

While internship and placements data of some management institutes clearly indicates that recruiters today have specific demands. The skill sets looked for are job centric and industry oriented. MBA schools which have adopted new models of delivery and technology, redesigned their courses, built an effective evaluation process and prepared the students to cope with the dynamic business scenario, have done great with campus placements despite the economic slow down.

However, the skill set being looked for by a consulting company like Deloitte or KPMG may be quite different from FMCG or a manufacturing sector. Institutes need to acknowledge this fact and act accordingly.

  • Management institutes should ensure that students are intellectually engaged, self motivated and adapt to changes fast. In one word ‘VUCA ready’.
  • B Schools should encourage students to participate in national and international competitive events, simulations of business scenarios.
  • Institutes should have the right mix of faculty members with industry exposure and pure academics.

The placement records of 2021 across top management institutes indicated the fact that recruitment is happening, skilled talent is in demand and certain management institutions continued to attract recruiters even in the middle of an ongoing crisis.

It is time, all management institutes rise to the occasion, understand market realities and identify areas of improvement at both ends – students and faculty.

After all, the stakes are high at both ends. B Schools taking corrective measures will stay while those which are lagging will end up shutting down.
