About “My Shillong Diary”

Dear Reader,

Thanks for entering “My Shillong Diary!”.

The name can be a bit misleading for the current version of this blog. “My Shillong Diary” was started by me in July 2012 as an online diary for my two years’ life in IIM Shillong (2012 – 2014). Later, the complexion of the blog started to change with a lot more posts written on travel, books, movies, cricket, music, start-ups and my thoughts on a number of other topics.

The “Browse by Category” on the right side of your screen can help you guide through my blog based on topics of your interest. Writing gives me immense satisfaction.

Your comments/feedback on my posts are most valuable. Read “about me” here.

Views expressed in the blog are personal.

  1. Nice to Meet you…I hail from NE(Assam) and will surely love going through your Shillong Dairy.. 🙂

  2. I am from Chennai pursuing btech in vit vellore could please give me guidance for preparing for cat ?

    • Hi Roshan,

      If you have IIM Shillong in your scheme of things, then the fact that you are from VIT means you’ve already crossed half the river; we have a HUGE VIT contingent in IIM Shillong. 😀
      Talk to your seniors from College.

      Talking of CAT in general, the only tip I can give you is to practice all types of problems so much that you feel that the main CAT exam is just another mock test. 🙂

      All the best!

      • could you just enumerate how you prepared for the verbal section and interviews and written analysis test .. actually I have more 5 months only but I am going to put all my heart and soul into preparation

  3. Concentrate on one thing at a time. Prioritize. Interview and WAT preparation can happen later. Works towards getting a good CAT percentile now. 5 months is enough time to work on all your weak sections. Take mock tests on sites like T.I.M.E (AIMCAT). The feedback you get there will help you figure out your weak areas and work towards them.

    All the best!

    What advise you would give to a fresher, who is to
    join in the upcoming batch. Especially when he is coming from north India. How is the connectivity from Guwahati to Shillong.

    • “Just go for it”. It will be one of the better decisions he may have taken in his life.

      Shillong is well connected by good roads to Guwahati. Takes 2.5 hours. There is also a helicopter facility. He might want to try it once.
