Well..I think its a great move on the part of Government to open an IIM in North East.
What i have read from the previous post..seems the junta at PG is reactin with a very sarcastic note for this whole IIM-S!!
Come On..i dont think even IIM-A was at the top position right from the day 1 of its creation..so what is the point to crib about ranking or how infrastructure will or how will faculty stay or students prefer!!
Even tough it starts functionong from 2006 session..nd even if quality of people going there will be just 95-96 percentile..but still i am sure guys/gals joinin there wont b bad..and ultimately any school,be it a management ,technical,medical etc etc..depends mainly on the performance of student..which i have a serious doubt that wont b bad..but infact good!!
I am sure it wont take more then 3-5 years to make its presence in the B-Skool rankings with the IIM infra nd quality of students!!
And its also a good move for the cause of North East..
I mean we just want them in map of India..and never want to associate them with the mainstream!! I bet if i ask all the seven states and their capital forming the north east..60% of junta will b
..nd tough it may sound hard..but its the fact try it urself!!
Even in the previous posts Johan quoted IIM in Mizoram
..and if any arguments arises..we will simply pass this mistake as.." yar one and same- Who cares"!!
So my idea is..we'd welcome the government's move nd look forward for an IIM in Meghalaya weather functional by this year or next!!
If we want North East as part of india..we need to appreciate moves like this and not just crib upon them..just coz idea doesnt sounds good for short term..or personal interests!!
