The MBA who sold his Darling…


Here darling refers to my grey CBZ…my dream machine…got this thing in the starting of first year…thought it will be helpful from college to hostel…didn’t know its potential then…how much it have in store for me…countless rides to udupi, restaurants, beaches, mountains, waterfalls and the list goes on and on…I so much wished to keep it for ever but all good things has to come to an end…so I started searching for a customer for my bike…thought of selling it first to a junior so that I can give it as late as possible…but didn’t work out…asked some 100 of times to dinesh…but he was trying to postpone to create a distress sale…so one day I thought of putting up posters in manipal…took a print out of my machine and hanged it at many places…was not enjoying it much with a feeling to part with it but anyways got it done…the same day dinesh called…and I went and sold my bike at his price…he is one shrewd business man, much better then many sales people in our college…he will let u sell ur bike to the same person you bought from…creating dummy parties…he just execute it properly…making a margin of atleast 3000 on one deal…he is too good…wish he would have come for a guest lecture…any ways there was a dissatisfaction…partly because I had to give it way and partly not getting the right price…but anyways its gone but the memories will always be there…I wouldn’t have enjoyed even 5% of what I did, if she had not been there…Adieu my CBZ
