Top MBA colleges mail their prospectus to Anil Kumble after he lost his job in spite of being an engineer

23, Jun 2017 By Santosh Pradhan

Kumble, in his parting statement, has said Virat Kohli had reservations about his coaching ‘style’ and there partnership was untenable as he did not accompany the side in the ongoing tour to the West Indies. Kumble joins a long list of Engineers who lose jobs in India on a daily basis. In fact he has started receiving prospectus of Top B schools in the country.


Job security is a major issue among the engineers in the country with the government not able to bring any law which would give them assurance. Most of the engineers in the country are on the bench of some premier IT companies, or are out of job. But unfortunate are those who get a job and then get fired for no reason, just as in the case of Anil Kumble.

Kumble graduated B.E from Rashtreeya Vidyalaya College of Engineering (RVCE) in Mechanical Engineering in 1991–92. Cricket gave him his first job and he had been living a secure life. His engineering degree also helped him bag the role of Indian cricket team’s coach. But never had he realized that Virat Kohli will make him the scapegoat of India’s recent loss to Pakistan in CT final.

Kumble who has some amazing photography skills does have options now to pursue it professionally, but doing an MBA from a premier institute will make his older days less struggling. Taking note of this fact, many colleges have sent him their prospectus and hope to bring in Kumble as their student. It would be a dream come true for some of these institutes, who always want famous personalities to be a part of their alumni base. Kumble can also help these colleges by bringing in companies for placements as he has good contacts around the world. It would be a win-win situation for both entities.
