In Search of Knowledge…

This email message reached me too…

Posted by Girish Krishnan on June 19, 2006

and i consider that a privilege!

The day i draft such an email, i would feel accomplished,The day i write like steinbeck, i would feel divinity!

I am reproducing the contents of the parting email sent by Dr Krishnakumar who taught us economics at ISB.

dear students:i’ve really enjoyed teaching the second half of global economics, and meeting you all inside and outside the classroom. thanks so much for your enthusiasm and for your kindness — today, the last day of classes, and on other days. i am deeply touched.
Economics, like real life, has its share of ambiguities, fuzziness, and dead-ends. but as john steinbeck wrote in his beautiful novel, “sweet thursday,” “…the clarifying leap springs from the rich soil of confusion, and the leaper is not unfamiliar with pain.” what i or anyone else can hope do in a short time is only rake this soil. the leap is yours to make. be bold. be irreverent. shift those graphs. good luck.
