Nice! Share it on Facebook so that your friends can join you here.
A lot of you guys wanted to know what a typical day at XIMB looks like.Well, here's my small writeup of what a generic day might look like.
Be warned. This is only about 40% of what happens at Jhabier. And trust me, you are in for the time of your lives.
Here is an update to @byzantine 's post
8:45 AM- Normal seeming day. The alarm buzzes. My sleepy hand wanders out from under the sheets and snoozes the alarm. “5 more minutes”
8:55 AM- Knowing my own self so well, I have a backup alarm. SNOOZED!
9:15 AM- The backup to the backup alarm fails to raise me off the bed as I sleep like the dead.
9:40 AM- Calls from friends having last minute breakfast raises the level of franticness with which I run out of bed. Brushing, answering natures call, get dressed all done in record time.
9:50 AM-Holy moly! I'm late! AGAIN! Sheepishly I peek into the professor's class and mutter “Sir, May I come in”. A lot of groveling later, one of two things may happen.
If it's a good day and a lenient professor, I get to enter the class, run to the nearest back bench and dutifully slip into a dream state all over again.
If it's not, then the process is repeated back at the room. After all, it's a 1.5 hours class.
11:15 AM- The first class is done. Run down the 12 flights of stairs, cause the lift would mean wasting precious moments of freedom. 15 minutes of freedom makes it worth all the physical effort of running down all those steps. X-Café, here I come.
11:30 AM- A few dozen chomps and after restocking on eatables to be used within the class, we are back in the same back bench. Repeat Process. Zzzzzzz..
1:00 PM- LUNCH! Where do we go? Dare I feel adventurous enough to risk a bite from the Mess. Or do I go to X-Café. Nah. Subway/Dominos/Café Itallano it is.
2:30PM- Class again. Repeat Process. ZZZZZ
2:30PM- NO CLASS. Repeat process. ZZZZZ
Classes end at 5:45 PM
5:46 PM- Chalo to Walmart for Chai.
6:15 PM- After a refreshing cup of tea, it's time for some more refreshments.
8:00 PM- Damn! Forgot about the presentation tomorrow. 1
8:01 PM- Frantic pings on the Whatsapp group for the assignment which was made a few months ago. Amazingly, no one remembered about it. : P. Asked everyone to meet at X-Café/Two and a Bud.
8:30 PM- A conversation shared over cups of tea/sandwiches/dosa later, people start to realize that the assignment is due in less than 12 hours. Everyone scrambles to pick up the easiest part.
9:00 PM- Could this day, get any more crowded? Committee work pending. Coordinator pings that there is an urgent meeting at CR-60. RIGHT NOW!
9:20 PM- Late to the meeting. Deliverables handed out.
9:30 PM- Oh well, I can always finish the assignment in a bit. I guess XSYS has put the latest Game of Thrones Episode on the server. Just a matter of 50 some odd minutes.
10:45 PM- Damn. Missed dinner. Can't work on an empty stomach. Night mess still got about an hour to open. Well, let's watch another episode.
12:00 AM – Night Mess. I promise! Not more than 15 minutes. Have that presentation to do after all.
12:45 AM- Ab khaane ke baad, thoda chalna to padega na. Bas ek hi baar X-Walk karoonga. Bas ek baar.
2:30 AM- Ah…That really freshened me up. It's too late to work now. And its only a small part. Kal subah karoonga.
(Off for Random Bakar and gossips at the adjoining rooms)
4:30 AM- Phew. Almost sunrise. Can't pull an all nighter. Will sleep just for an hour.
( To the person in the room beside your)
“Bhai, wake me up at 7:00 AM. Pakka. Karega na? Thanks man. Tu hi bhai hai mera”
8:30 AM- Ab tak 7:00 AM nahin baje kya?
9:15 AM – Random copy-> paste of relevant stuff scrounged from previous year presentations.
9:45 AM- Reached class. Phew! Prof is none the wiser about the escapades. And my team mates can handle the explanations. I made it.
9:46 AM- Damn it! He's asked me to explain the part of which I have no knowledge.
Another component me zero! Koi nahin. Agli baar.

The Last Sunday Cleaning
The student fraternity of XIMB was involved in a cleanliness drive from the Xavier Square to Loyola school on the last Sunday of this year. This was successfully executed in co-ordination with the Administration and the Student Executive Council.
This experience has made us stronger and our ambitions about a DEVELOPED INDIA are now crystal clear. Our dreams have become bigger and our actions have become swifter. With such enthusiasm coupled with the amazing training by our professors, we are sure to achieve our dreams of the golden bird.
Let's give ourselves what we deserve.Let's give India what she deserves. And that's nothing less than the best.
Occasions where the prefix 'X' makes perfect sense. XIMB and 'Dukaan - A Students of XIMB initiative' wishes everyone a Merry 'X'mas!
Rajasekhara Reddy from 2013-15 PGDM batch makes it to the top by being the India topper and scoring the highest marks in the country in Credit Suisse HOLT Valuation Challenge Stage 1.
All the very best to him for the next stages.
