This is vintage stuff from our wall mag during placement of our batch -circa 1984, but worth a look even today.
Overheard- On The Placement Front
Usha Mohan- Hoechst. What Next?
‘Banker” Sridharan (after Lovelock Lewis’ abortive interview)- With most people, it is Lovelock, then Wedlock and finally Hemlock. With me, it was Wedlock, Lovelock and then Hemlock.
‘Big-Bong Chakki’ (after his 25th interview)- What shit yaa! They did not ask me a single question! (legitimate question. But not after the 25th interview, Chakki.)
‘Monto’ Hemant- Only BEML, Only BEML, Only BEML (what about Only Vimal fans?)
Alka Mehta (after the Ulka interview)- Why didn’t my parents name me Ulka? I could’ve walked in!
‘Big-Bong Chakki’ (before an interview with a Bombay company)- I have visited Calcutta and Delhi. Now I want to visit Bombay.
Usha Mohan (after Usha Microprocesors Interview)- My husband has 50% equity participation. The ‘Usha’ part.
Shobha Iyer (during Godrej & Boyce Interview)- I want to know why it is Godrej and ‘Boys’ mfg. co.
‘Grand Chacha’ Sarma (after offer from HPCL)- I wanted Projects. I got it! I wanted Chemicals. I got it! What about the public sector, chacha?
