Haha...its all over ..ya the 10 days of real fun all of us had are over ...its the same old feeling that we had in school.. The college has begun. But the better part is we have lot more exciting people here than at school or may be we are old enough to realise that now..

This trimestor would be a really testing with 8 subjects to take care of...looking forward to meet the challenge head on....

Hi puys this just checkout our promo video of IFMR fest , ABHYUDAYA-2011 , the theme is " MAHABHARATH" ...which is the most potent management bible , hence the theme..the would be lots of great events including some spicy stuff like blind dates....


Most of the events have been decided and some deliberations are going regarding others...the event is to be held in FEB next year...Here is the link , hope you enjoy the video as well as the music.

Hi puys... Just a funny incident ,in fact it was scary too. A couple of my friends and I have stayed back in the hostel to pursue a project in the diwali vacation . Yesterday night I was alone in GCC , no its not the Gulf cooperation council I am talking about its our favourite Ganapathi Computer centre , where every activity right from brainstorming with friends for doing group asignments to watching movies in the cozy environment which is more like a medium sized hall with the right furniture in place and some a/c s obviously...


The power suddenly went off and I was alone at around 3:00 in the midnight I guess and suddenly heard the main door making creeky noises ...I can only hear that and nothing else...My god I once thought all the horror movies would be played all at once, then the door slowly opens to make my plight even more worse....oops Aditya then sneeks in and laughs like hell...I guess he can scare away even the real devils if there were any .. ..Then I hear a sound grrrrrrrrr......the generator switches on....Oh man the security wala should have done it a bit earlier:drinking::drinking:

Today its BBJ!!! Yeah its bread butter jam today for breakfast along with omelette and corn flakes, my favourite breakfast here and lots of milk!!!

Today we had a HR summit- MANIFEST at hotel Radisson GRT in Chennai..well the bouncer was that one of roomies was caught napping in the conference by one of the eminent speakers which was to his embarresment...may be not really .. I guess that is what we do in some of the classes in the last benches anyways .....and we had one awesome lunch there...really worth going ....especially for those gourmets...

Well sometimes you feel that competition is bad...but today I realised that it is really bad not have any competition...No i am not talking about acads and grades...

I am talking about the scene on the badminton court...It was so devoid of life..because most of my buddys left home to celebrate diwali . There were four of us who started playing badminton and then realised that there were no queues waiting to get on to the court and the snatch the racket from you and no groups supporting different teams....

When they were around I used to think " when will these guys go to bed" so that I could play all night...but you know what we miss them all ...in fact it is the lighter moments that we tend to cherish at IFMR ....not the game

yes it those mixed doubles games with lots of "chemistry" and for poor souls like me who are single it is those games when well my favourite...... plays that makes it all the more necessary to stay late in the night...

MISS you all buddys..Happy DIWALI!!!

The placement season has indeed kicked off with a bang!!! Its time for our seniors to make destiny their own....and for us the diwali holidays await in a big way..

Well ..we did not have many holidays after the first trimestor , because we requested the management to give us some holidays for diwali instead and so they did...so off to our home places in 2 days time!!!!

Enough of the events, semesters, summits, games nd what not, here begins the placement season of this year for batch 2011.
4 bigshots within a week what else do you want.
Yesterday ICICI bank came for recritment, today Bank of America nd SBI Life, Irevna on 29th and alot more to come in coming days.
