Copying Business

Gotta take the VIth Sememster exam of Marketing Management (JBIMS) begining this Wednesday. All usual there is a tearing hurry to Xerox last minute notes, scribbled lectures, disgorged Gyan and important Questions (obviously with answers).

The only ones, literally laughing all the way to the bank, are the rows of Xerox-wallahs for whom this season is a manna from Heaven. The quaint gully featuring HLL and AIR Head offices prep ups and acts as a reunion venue for the long lost JBIMSites. Friends and Batchmates who rarely make an appearances in the Class are sure to be discovered here. There is a frenzied activity to get as much notes Xeroxed as possible. God forbid if the same notes are in different fonts or type!! These notes are visually glanced and quickly declared anew. Frentic orders are then issued to the Xerox-wallah to get these copied as well.

Seriously there exists a need-gap to service such a mass of management humanity using mobile Xerox facilities. Trailers having 3-4 Xerox machines can be parked opposite the Institute and mass orders taken. Customers( read students ) providing references to other customers can be provided a cut or given an option of profit sharing. Well next time an advertisment/poster appears asking for a business idea, yours truly shall endeavour...

LOL that was an interesting way to look at it. As someone who always made her own notes and can't study from photocopied notes of others, I tend to generally look down at ppl who realise at the last moment that they joined a particular education institution for the main purpose of education...guess it stems from discovering on the day of the exam that 80% of your class is walking around with a photocopied version of your painstakingly made notes...and I don't even get any payment for it! :-P

Thanks for dropping by my blog! Keep it coming - you seem to have a stong theme for your blog!
