The Bangalore gang of 2013 and 2014 PGPMAX batches met today for lunch… The pre-reads, assignments, professors, Dean’s list, Bean’s list and mini regression to being students again :). It has been four weeks since our classes are done and everyday I have withdrawal symptoms – even now if I watch a movie, am thinking … Read more Lunch with school friends

I joined Cipla as a Medical Representative on the 15th of September 1980 after a series of interviews.
