A journey like no other- Summer Exchange Program

Share Button

We’re blessed to encounter various opportunities at various phases in our life, whether we realize it or simply pass by it. However, the experience we derive out of an opportunity is what makes all the difference.

In a globalized world like ours today, it’s imperative that young professionals like ourselves, entering the workforce are sensitized to the diversity that exists in our professional spaces. It’s crucial we mold ourselves into informed global citizens who garner experience and skills necessary to succeed in international and cross- cultural economies.
Along with focusing on ways to optimize our bandwidths, as an MBA graduate its vital that we focus on learning how to interact with people from other cultures and become well- equipped future leaders, able to address issues across borders.

My semester at EM Normandie has taught me exactly this. I chose to pursue my PGDM from IMT Hyderabad, a key reason being the numerous opportunities the university provides. The International Student Exchange Program was one of those opportunities available at IMT that motivated me to apply. From a plethora of universities made available by the college, I inclined my preference to a university that helped me explore subjects that weren’t part of the curriculum pre-determined for most first year MBA students across the country. In this semester I was able to explore subjects like Logistics and Purchasing, Management Consulting, a pedagogic project on Agricultural Entrepreneurship, Event Management etc. which moved beyond the structure of the first-year PGDM course. I was able to explore these unique subjects whilst living and working with people from various parts of the globe and understand their outlook and perspective on the problem statements given to us. From discussing on topics like religious beliefs in different countries, changing role of women in the work place, to the importance of micro-financing in remote areas and ways to contribute.  The possibility to experience such a unique learning experience helped me attain an insight into the way other cultures propagate education and learning that forms the rationale of their citizens.

Not only did my perception as a student develop through this journey, but also my perspective towards everyday life. We are blessed to live in a comfortable cushioned lifestyle with easy solutions to our everyday life in our country. However, the exchange experience pushed me right outside this comfort zone, to experience a life of living independently, being responsible as well as adjusting to a new environment.
The discomfort of having to not only acclimatize oneself to the climate but also to the culture, lifestyle, diversity and difference makes one resilient and shatters stereotypes engraved within our edified outlooks.
The barriers posed by factors like financial need, disabilities, sexual orientation, race and ethnicity are slowly fading in the world around us and an experience like this helped me discover the global opinion on these issues.

This journey has been a life changing experience, from discovering hidden treasures around Europe to discovering a treasure trove of appreciation towards the unique opportunity provided to me. I carry forward all that I have learnt from this adventure in hopes of becoming not only a post graduate professional by the end of my impending second year at IMT, but also a globally sensitized citizen.

Open Mic- An ode to the Winter Night

To a day full of warmth,

To an evening full of smiles,

To a team that pulled it off,

To the people who joined,

It was a wonderful time when you shared and I heard it all with a smile.

It was yet another day to my memory book,  when we all sang and made the event worth while.

On December 6, 2018, Eloquence organised Open Mic 7.0, with the theme “An ode to the winter night”,  where we all IMTians gathered together to vent it all out.  The life of a B-School where’s all too much sometimes,  we have got Open Mic evenings to our rescue that helps us unroll.  Entwined in words and stories,  the rhythm of the music helped us say goodbye to all the stress and blues.

DSC_0137

Many students joined and shared their stories of childhood and some about the love for words too. There was no room for judgement in an event that we are sure is rooted to our hearts.  To a very pure venting out place,  where we were all cozy in the beats and outside, we were hugged by the cold breeze. Baring out our souls in form of poetry, shaayari, songs and what not,  Open Mic was open for all. It made way for all the loquacious selves backed up by the peppy talks and some music.

DSC_0194

It was an evening where people spread out joys,  some supporting their friends,  some overcoming  their fears,  some rejoicing the moments and some taking a moment to gear.  It was all about web of stories that we all shared,  it was a time when we got engaged to phrases and lines. To yet another event that make us look forward to something amazing this life has to offer,  to make our mundanes even better.

Kudos to the Team Eloquence for spreading out warmth on this winter night.

A foreigner in his own country

Share Button

There once lived a man in the country of Realis, located in the seventh parallel dimension to our Earth. He was a fine man, in his 20s, and a dashing young bachelor. Everything was fine with him save for one fault. He was not really appreciated by his people because he was different. He was in fact more handsome and attractive than his peers, but in a world where everyone is ugly, the beautiful one is the black sheep. He wondered about his short-comings day and night. He wondered why the people around him do not really want to have anything to do with him personally and wanted to do something about it. He really wanted a few understanding people around him. He wanted to communicate with them but could not do so because he did not know their language very much. Even when he tried to speak their language, his peers laughed at him and asked him to stick to his own “weird tongue”. Resolute, he decided that some action must be taken.

So, he decided to try to win their favor by trying to help them out in their short-comings. But this only made them take advantage of him and use him for their own selfish needs. Was it fruitful? No. Because they only now know him as a helper, but they never wanted him to be their friend. He did not give up yet, because he decided to try something new by trying to talk to a lot of people and listen to their problems instead of solving it for them. His peers didn’t mind a person who is there to listen to their problems, but they never wanted to listen his. He even tried to find love but the lasses of Realis didn’t want to even stand close to him, fearing what the society would say when they are caught hanging out with a “weirdo”. Distraught, he decided to try one final method- become famous. He tried any means possible to become famous among the tribe ranging from the most idiotic self-deprecating actions to even taking up initiative to be their leader. But the people only laughed AT him instead of WITH him and did not take him seriously at all.

`

Realizing that they only wanted him for what he has, but not who he is, he was devastated and one day decided to take away his life. Before he could close the curtains of his life, a blue light shined nearby. A beautiful woman walked out of the light and said, “Come. We have a better place for you”. So, he went along with her to a place called Utopia– a place where everyone looked as beautiful as him, where they spoke his language and where the people could understand his disposition. He made amazing friends, had an amazing time and even married the woman who saved his life and had two children. He then realized, he was just in the wrong place all the time.

Have you come across situations in life where you are able to relate to the man described above? Then all you have to remember is that you are in the wrong place with the wrong people. All you have to do is find a place that can accept you, and for that, they need to resonate with you closely. People might say, “Meeting new people is important! It is a part of improving your diversity”. Sure, it can help you land a few contacts, sure it can help you be liked by many. But there are only a few people who will be able to fully understand you. And guess what? There is no easy way to it. You got to find them no matter what. Until then, enjoy your life around during your search, for if you do so, happy days are nearby.

“Winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing..”

Similar thoughts triggered in the minds of all the participants who visited our campus on 17th November for Periodos-2018, IMT’s flagship sports event– from colleges across various parts of  India.

Periodos 6.0 commenced with the lighting of lamp, followed by a marvelous speech  by the Director, Dr. Satish Ailawadi and the faculty in charge of the event, Prof. Saurabh Bhattacharya.

Verve

Small minds discuss people, average minds discuss happenings, great minds discuss ideas.

And so did we – the people of Eloquence, the public speaking club of IMT Hyderabad. The ideas that made up this year’s “VERVE”, the flagship event of the club. The idea in itself represented a lot of feelings like enthusiasm, exuberance, and artistic, and on the top of it was the theme of the event – “Reverie”. I am so proud to say that the great minds of Eloquence did absolute justice with the idea as well as with the theme.

DSC_0173

It was yet another colorful event in IMT Hyderabad wherein Eloquence organised 5 games, each involving the common idea of speaking, communicating and yet being unique in themselves.

First game was “Puchka and Puzzle”. Yes, it’s the same puchka that we all love to eat. But what about the puzzle?

DSC_0205

So, the participants had to search for words from the grid of letters and on every correct word they would get a Puchka. Sounds fulfilling, no? And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better – you also get a prize when you complete 7 words.

The second game was “Rumble and Roll”. Now we all know how tough it is to do a tongue twister already, but what fun it is if you had to walk on a plank with 2 heavy books in both your hands and then do a tongue twister.

Can you do that?

Next was “Word of Thrones” where a team of 2 played the game. One of the participants was blindfolded and told a word, who then had to search for letters from the pile just by touching them and the other one had to guess the word. Staying calm and patient was the key here.

The fourth event was “karaoke” but do you think anything at Verve would come without a catch? Absolutely not!

In order to win the prize the participant had to sing the entire song.. without having missed a single word from the lyrics. We gave an amazing stage to the participants to showcase their singing skills and win prizes for the same. Moupia of junior batch was the first person to take the challenge, and, as expected, won the prize and everyone’s hearts with her beautiful voice.

The last event and one of my personal favorites was “Pictionary”. One of the two participants was given the movie name, who then had to draw something related to it while his partner had to guess it. Now we all remember that scene from “The Big Bang Theory” where Sheldon plays this game and complicates it even more. Well, here some played like Penny while some played like Sheldon. I myself tried the game and turned out to be just another Sheldon at this.

DSC_0377

The club surely left an impression on everyone with their very first event of the year. It taught us a variety of methods to think and to communicate and obviously win prizes. I am sure the members of the club would be happy that all their efforts finally paid off.
