Baroda it is...
Finally the much awaited list which by all means should have been out by 15th Apr came out today i.e. 26th Apr. A small correction the list came out yesterday evening itself but the mail had a line which said its tentative list and and final would be updated soon. Thankfully "soon" this time meant just 24 hrs unlike the previous occasions when soon meant 3 weeks :-) and the final list landed today in my inbox.
But I guess those guys (ICICI + NU) didn't have an option of delaying it further, else lot of us wouldn't have been joining the location by the due date which is 2nd May. Vadodara (commonly known as Baroda) is large industrial/IT township in the state of Gujarat. So I would be off to west coast of India for another 3 months to learn about commercial banking. Frankly I was sure that adjusting 150+ odd requests was going to be tough task and there could be surprises as well. You cannot make everyone happy and run the business as well so I do not want to blame the bank and I was always mentally prepared to take assignment anywhere. Hoping the learning is exponential and I get to contribute something as well though 3 months is short duration.
Life seems to be fast track now where events keep happening at a pace that you loose track. Hopefully after the first 3 months I would be placed back in NCR/Mumbai for the next 3 months. July seemingly would be an eventful month since the anxiety would be back (list for next 3 months) and personal fronts would have more updates as well. Hopefully the next update would be from Sanskari Nagari.
