A drastic change of times from 1988 till May’2022.
My thought goes way back to 1988 when I was awarded the Gold Medal:. When I was just 27 years old and had appeared in my Post Graduate Diploma in Marketing and Sales Management (PGDMSM) by attending the evening management college in Ludhiana, covering this under Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan-which was then a renowned institute offering such a course. Those days, the MBA was not being conferred in most of the management colleges, as is happening still with some of the prestigious management institutes, having the lead role nowadays. The joyful news was that I had secured 70.50% marks cumulative in all the subjects and was adjudged topper. I remember those days around 32 years back; it was considered a very great achievement, and I was awarded the Gold Medal by the then Vice Chancellor-Prof. G S Randhawa of the Guru Nanak Dev University of Amritsar.
