i reached collg @ 5:00pm and to tell u all honestly my tiredness,frustation due to a long journey all disappeared
in a moment.the collg is located on the banks of river mandovi and the place is so beautiful dat i hav no words to
describe.the collg has 5 hostels OT,HT,Morgue,Admin,LH wid HT givin the best panoramic view of the college and the
mandovi river.i met the warden and took a room @ HT(hill top).i was tired hence went to sleep early night.nxt day
was the registration day.for the first time i went into admin bloc.while walking to our registration room i had the
feeling of "walking thru the corridors of power".uptill now i had met a few fellow PGP1s who seemed very impressive.
i was feeling rather inferior in front of dem.but as u know knowledge brings humility,that humility was well present in them.
they made me feel totally @ ease.we completed our registration formalities and were told by the administration dat director sir
and the entire faculty was goin to address us in a few mins.then walked the real prestige and value of GIM,the faculty and the Director sir.
the entire faculty introduced demselves and director sir made short and sweet speech covering all the important points reg our stay here.
then we were taken round the campus and shown laundary(comes first on my list),gym,canteen,jaggus,administrative bloc and hostels.
with this our day ended at 5:00pm.after that we all batchmates went on the ferry(yesss,v hav a ferry service just nxt to the collg)
to the opposite side of the river.seeing GIM from the opposite end a feeling of pride filled my heart.nxt day again was introductory with
speeches made by some faculty,placement cell,doctor etc.at night we celebrated the b'day of one my batchmate and to tell u it was the most
spectacular(b'day boy with cake and eggs smashed all over him) b'day ever seen by me.with the third day started our foundation course.
on the first day in the first session itself v got our first assignment by Mirchandani sir.deadline was next day.the rest of the day went into anticipation
of another one but thankfully it didn't come.so on the first evening of foundation v were sitting with our grps reading and understanding the assignment.
the nxt day we got two more assignments and the evening went as before.GIM has purchased costly softwares from diff companies which gives us all the info
(EPS,EP ratio,balance sheet,annual report etc etc) reg any listed company in india for the last 5 yrs.GIM has also purchased some other s/w but knowedge abt
them i cannot share:(.we had not anticipated so much pressure from the first day itself but it is whtlife in GIM is all made abt.
in last 9 days we hav got more dan 10 assignments(infact i m writing dis as i got bored wid one).v hav got one of the best
faculties here with ADG sir havin served in the planning commission on India,Vernekar sir havin served the Goa govt reorganizing education system in Goa,
Ranjini maam,Sujoy sir and Balasubramanian sir IIM passouts,Parulekar sir gold medalist in pharma,Mirchandani sir havin vast experience of industry(served as CEO)
and teaching,Nagarajan sir havin served in RBI and teaching now.one can only dream of havin such a faculty at one place.all the profs are following case study
pattern of teaching in which v have to study one day ahead of the class.sats and sundays are also full wid assignments so life is pretty bzy here infact dis
thing alone is one of the hallmarks of gr8 schools.ohho,dont misunderstand dat GIM is all abt studies, we had our GBMs(general body meets),PDP
(personality dev prog)and trips to beaches and movie.now i m ending here as my roomie is pressing for d assignment.so dats it for now,will come back shortly.
