A man, a plan, a ponytail...

Yes, yes, if you have been following the Desi blogosphere at all you have heard of Mr Ponytail himself. He who counts his chickens before they hatch and so on! You can read the whole story here and here.
My take on this though is a little different. I feel really sorry for the students at IIPM, especially the current ones. Is there a single firm thats going to hire them now? Multinationals are going to think twice before they hire someone who is so willing to take the law into their own hands. Oh and try getting a job from any IIM person - the IIPM Vs. blogs story is all over the IIM alumni mailing lists. The sad part is that the students get the shaft, whereas most of them were probably not guilty of anything but being gullible.

Urmi I completely agree, and feel really bad for the students as well. Hopefully, the IIPM management will see this as a wakeup call and try and clean up their act. However, going by the actions of Ponytail's cronies in the past few days, this seems unlikely.

i think the students will survive. the only thing we can hope is that future students are warned away from the place.

loved the story, btw.
