One could also describe it as the season of lists and mellow wantonness, and silly headlines. Lists as in lists of companies attending the placements. Wantonness as in the big pay packages. And silly headlines like this from today's Bangalore edition of The Hindu (not present online):
IIMB graduates prefer to work in India
Silly because the article hardly justifies it - two graduates are quoted as having decided to stick on in India. Oh well, I'll just recycle an old post. Why not, when they are recycling the headlines.
