After 3 years of struggling, I finally finished my part time PGDBA program from Loyola Institute of Business Administration . By the third year, most of us just wanted it to end, the course took a toll on family life with classes 4 days a week from 6.45-8.30 PM.
Looking back, what I most remember is the wonderful tree lined atmosphere of the college, an oasis amidst the concrete jungle that is Chennai. It was a pleasure to enter the smoke free, noise free campus everyday.
I would always remember the witty remarks of the Economics faculty, Prof. A.C. Fernando. I remember his comments more than the supply demand curve he taught us :-).
A few samples:
When he gave our assignment papers and somebody asked "Sir, are these marks out of ten or twenty?" pat came the reply "Neither, it is out of pity I have given you these marks".
"This it the most brightest class I have ever handled, 64 tubelights under one roof"
There were a lot more of such spontaneous repartees. Somebody said that he repeats these to every class, but I am least bothered. Had a great time in his class.
