Home to Hostel- A paradigm Shift

Share Button

11th of June was the date when I landed in Hyderabad to kick start this new journey I was about to embark on. Till then it hadn’t dawned upon me about how big this change was going to be : It was only when the cab zoomed through the gates that read – Institute of Management Technology, Hyderabad, that I realized the gravity of this paradigm shift.
With that being said, this situation might resonate with all of you who are here to experience the hostel life for the first time. We all came here with a set of predefined notions about the life in a hostel, didn’t we? I, for one, was totally enticed by the concept of living with friends in a hostel all thanks to Rajkumar Hirani’s 3 Idiots.

To say that my expectations were high would be an understatement. I was that stoked to experience hostel life, and it showed.

F.R.I.E.N.D.S- not just a tv show

Share Button

Living a life away from your parents, your home or maybe your loved one, what does the word “friends” remind you of? Your mom who cares about every little detail of your life? Or your dad, the person you would like to emulate? Or your pet who loves you unconditionally no matter if everyone else in the world hates you?

For me it was nothing but a 1994 TV show.

Earlier in 2016, right after the day my MBA entrance exams got over, I started binge watching this show and by the time I watched the last episode( i was in tears by the way) I started looking for the characters in the real life, imagining myself as Joey. I don’t know, but somewhere, I relate a lot to him. For I believe, I am someone who will be there for the loved ones when things are not right; and not to forget, even I don’t like sharing food.

Ace Connect- Day 1

Share Button

As I woke up, the day seemed quite different, like it was quivering with energy ready to burst from the surface of a placid Saturday morning. The whole campus was decorated with posters with everyone being pretty excited. Well, obviously, the case was different today not only because it was a Saturday, or should I say an exam-free Saturday, but it was the day where one of the signature events was happening.

Ah, you guessed it right. It was the day when Ace Connect took place, where the corporate bigwigs took to the field to play against the students in different sports like volleyball, cricket, etc with ferocity, yet a great sense of sportsmanship.DSC_1503

Like I said, the day wasn’t usual. Akin to the tag line from the recent Game of Thrones Season “the winter has come”, the students seemed to chant “Ace Connect has come”.

Kolkata Diaries- Until next time!

Share Button

“It’s been quite a while…” she sighed, as all of a sudden, an array of memories flashed in front of her eyes, twinkling with the sheer joy of ‘homecoming’. In the state of nostalgia, she grabbed her take away order which was eventually compensating her delay in flight. It has been four long months since her last meeting with her parents and in between those thoughts, she bit her fingers along with those tempting fries.kolkata-post

The ecstatic feeling, the feeling of going back to where she belonged, made her rush through things. She finished her fries in a moment to board the flight ’cause waiting is what she couldn’t do anymore. Finally, post boarding she decided to take up one of those Bengali story books which she carried just to relive her childhood memories, over and over again. Going back to her place after such a long time was a dream for her, earlier and now that dream was about to come true, that dream for which she had been patient, was making her impatient this time.

Wednesday, 27th of September saw the Athena club of IMT Hyderabad put up a magnificent show, ‘Crazzino’, in the campus. The creative promotions had our excitement blowing through the roof. The preparations started a day prior to the event.

Seven stalls were set up, where people could try their luck in games like poker, roulette, black-jack, chuck a luck, red and blue, teen patti and seven-up seven-down. Stalls were allotted to students through a bidding process. The bids went up to as high as 5000 for a stall and the clamour among the students playing the games justified that high price. The event began at 8 p.m. in the evening and continued till cdf0e334-9b29-48f4-b461-2e3b6251e69cwee hours of the night.

Synergy presents COLLOQUIUM

Share Button

This year Synergy, the HR club of IMT Hyderabad, started off by organizing its first event, Colloquium- a mock interview session, on 18th September 2017 in the auditorium. The basic motive behind this event was to help the participants for their upcoming internship interviews. The structure was different from any other interview session that one would expect. Here, the participant got the chance to be the interviewer as well as the interviewee at the same time through role play.

The event began at 7:00 PM with curious participants joining us- as to who will be p1interviewing them after all- will it be the faculty or the seniors? To break the suspense and to lighten up the mood, there was an ice-breaking activity, named ‘The Blind Date’ wherein, all the participants were divided into two circles- inner and outer. As soon as the music played, both the circles had to move in the opposite directions and once it stopped, they had to tell their name, hobby and one weird thing about themselves to the person standing in front of them. This activity actually helped the participants to get to know each other and got the enthusiasm of the participants’ going.

Share Button

As students about to graduate from an MBA college, most of us are already at the last junction of our academic careers. This is it! We are now on the verge of entering into a new phase of life. The responsibility of steering it in right direction reliesIMG_8581 solely upon us. And to be honest, the thought of it is terrifying. Hence some advice and guidance to equip ourselves for the journey ahead would always come as a blessing. And, when such advice comes from a fellow IMTian’s own journey and perspective, what more could have one asked for?

Lucky for us, Alumni Relations Committee of IMT Hyderabad successfully hosted an Alumni talk addressed by Mr. Kalyan Chaganti, Head of the South India IMG_8654operations at Johnson & Johnson. Mr. Kalyan, very enthusiastically shared and walked us through his entire journey, giving us a glimpse of what lies ahead and how should we steer it in the right direction.

Life of a ‘Sneakerhead’

Share Button

When you go out, what is the thing that you put on to make your outfit look on point? It could be that one shirt that makes you stand out like a “green hat with an orange bill” (the Eminem fans should get that reference). This piece of clothing or accessory is the one thing that gives you confidence and makes you feel like a million bucks. For me, it’s my sneakers. I am what you might call a “sneakerhead” or “sneakgeek”. The term simply defines the fact that a person, is a sneaker How-to-Be-a-Sneakerheadenthusiast. My love for shoes goes way back to when I was a kid. I saw a pair of light up shoes, and I knew I needed them, and when I did, all I did was wear them all day and everywhere. I wore them so much that I did not care even if they were falling apart. When I got older, I started drawing little sketches of shoes in the corners and the back pages of my books at times, dreaming what it would be like to own my own line of sneakers. It was then I found out about Michael Jordan and his line of shoes with Nike, titled aptly the “Air Jordans” or the hip hop/ rap group Run DMC who signed a contract with Adidas back in the day. It was then I realized, the dream wasn’t just a dream anymore.

A Traveller’s Diary

Share Button

If someone were to pay for my travelling expenses, believe me, you wouldn’t ever see me again…such is my passion for travelling. It lets you discover yourself. Even better if you do it alone! You tend to enjoy your own company, you starts to love and care for yourself and most importantly- you seek freedom. Freedom from the grind, the hustle and bustle of a chaotic life.

A few years ago, I went on a trip to ladakh-winterLadakh and soon enough realized that I had started off on a journey, a journey which was more rewarding than the destination!
Several thoughts flooded my mind, and I felt that the  impulse to travel was a mental and physical curiosity. Travelling is a passion with the highest physical and mental involvement, and I can’t understand why some people say they wouldn’t want to do it. Travel while you can, even if it means you saving money for it because the experience you get out of it is much more valuable than money. You see life in everything, you come close to not only nature but also to yourself.
