VIRU PAAJI, ME & THE GMAT

I don’t know about anyone else but besides the joy and thrill of watching Virender Sehwag bat, there was something I learnt from him that had a direct impact on my career. It was when I took my GMAT.

In the test it is a waste of effort to figure out if you got a question right or wrong. You do your best on every question and move on (in the GMAT you have to answer a question to get to the next question; there’s no skipping) and forget about the last question. That bit of mental block was erased when I realized that’s exactly how Virender Sehwag bats. He may have gotten beaten on the last delivery but it makes no difference to his approach to the next one. And that’s exactly what I hadn’t been doing while taking the practice tests!

So long, Viru! And thanks for the fish!
