So the day has come. Final day to say Goodbye to BIM,the place which gave me so much and helped to boost myself in most distressing times...
I'm preparing for last exam(Rural Marketing) of my BIM's life today now and I don't know whether I will be part of PG and contribute to it like the way I did so far ...
Not able to frame even a sentence properly right now....
Good bye BIM , Good bye Good Life
Nostalgia preparation is going on. Tutu Bharath and Flabbergasting Sanju has taken the responsibility of creating our BIM 27 Notalgia album consisting of our batch picture collections and testimonials about every individual. They will be preparing a PDF doc before 13th April I guess. Later it might be printed and distributed depending upon availability of time.
4 more exams, 7 more days ... waiting waiting...

The first exam of final trims Strategic Management exam is over. Managed to get some marks.... the real exams start from tomo : International marketing for me and it goes till 13th of April,the final day of my college life I guess...
Waiting to write all the exams at one stretch !!
The farewell party last night. Got on stage, expressed gratitude to all the people who made my 2 years at BIM memorable, did, or rather, tried to do an impromptu dance, came out feeling happy. The traditional candles exchange ceremony - wasn't feeling as emotional as last year (when I was on the verge of tears when giving candles to some seniors), somewhere at the back of my mind, there is this feeling that people would be close to me forever and I would not be separated from them. But gotta be rational and come to terms with reality.
All set for the Strategic Management simulation game exam tomorrow.
A roller coaster ride last week. First the Personal Growth Lab sessions which was a forum for us to open up and share everything about ourselves and in the process discover our true selves. Initially it was a bit of a drag but later we realized there is no agenda except us opening up in discussions. Came to know that the true learning will come over a period of time and not immediately.
Went on a road-trip to Palani and Coimbatore the day before. Early morning start, had a darshan in one hour, went over to Coimbatore, reminisced my happy days there, ate at all the popular eatouts like Annapoorna Hotel, ended as a trip worth remembering for ages.
with barely 20 odd days to go, ppl have started leaving home now just before the exams... waiting to finish off all these exams - studies things to get over soon....
With just a couple of presentations in Consumer Behaviour, a one-off class in Rural Marketing and Personal Growth Lab sessions scheduled, classroom life is all set to come to an end. Unable to digest that sinking feeling.
3 days of great fun. Headed straight to Cochin Veega Land on 17th morning, had an awesome time there in all the rides. The water rides were the most fun. Spent the whole day there and then went to Marai Beach Resort somewhere between Cochin and Alleppey. Spent the night there in a fisherman style hut that was neatly furnished.
Alleppey was up next and we spent the whole of 18th in the house boat and even stayed overnight. Spent almost a full day in the vast backwaters.
Thommankuthu waterfall in Idukki district was lined up for Day 3 and as it got late by the time we reached, we had to scrap the plan to visit Cochin city. Instead we headed to Angamaly on the Thrissur-Cochin NH where we had dinner at a highway dhaba before returning to Trichy overnight. Arrived at around 9 AM, slept for some time and headed for class at 2 PM.
All geared up for the batch tour tomorrow to Cochin and Alleppey. Total fun for 3 whole days in God's Own Country. Looking forward to it eagerly.
Participated in probably the last and final competition of my academic life at 'Marcethlon', a series of marketing events on the theme of 'Food'. Won the 2nd prize at the quiz. Was trailing behind initially but scraped through in the final round where we had to go to different places in the campus and collect 8 brands of any major brand house. Got Duracell and Olay at the first point and decided to go with P&G;, ended up being the first to collect 8.
Clubs and committees form the soul of student life here. One can never forget the moments one spent in the committee activities. And working with other committees is always a great learning as it gives insights into the way they work. After spending 5 trimesters as an 'honorary' member of Sportscomm, it was Bismarc this time. Spent a couple of hours with them helping them to get the Marcethlon artifacts ready by dawn. Flex banners, hanging cutouts, taking photos of the whole thing was great fun.
The event is about to start tonight and I am eagerly looking forward to participating in it since I did not do so last year.
After jogging and aerobics, I experimented with cycling today. Originally planned a simple cycle ride along BHEL road but later rode 5 kms all the way to BHEL township via Kamarajapuram, had dinner there, dessert at Chandru cafe and returned via the main BHEL road. Never once felt exhausted, probably proof that my stamina level has gone up a bit.
Lined up next is Marcethlon, a series of marketing events on a specific theme. The theme this year is Food.
Lots of free time these days, want to make sure all must-see places in and around Trichy are explored.
The treasure hunt last night was fun... My team came 2nd \m/ winning a prize worth rs.2k.... Meanwhile the other events which are a part of finutsav are going in full gear.... Right now the finals of two events, equity research and perplexes ( a strategy gaming event) is going on.
Meanwhile, tmrw morning sessions are off due to holi. Looking forward for a great celebration tmrw
