Thread moved to Life @ B-School Section.

All the best to all ! 😃

So every one is actually wondered how is a typical day for a IITian specially KGpian is
Here we go !

A day in Life of a Kgpian

*A new day dawns with the chirping of the birds and the loud cry of the alarm, followed
by a flurry of activities, some known and some unknown. KGPians should consider
themselves lucky if they manage to grab a quick bite before huffing and puffing their way
to the classes in their bicycle.

*Classes are enjoyable and thought provoking with case studies, presentations and role
plays. KGPians usually get a cup of coffee from NESCAFE to remain all ears to one
lecture after the other. Just when they think that the class has ended, there is a surprise
quiz waiting for them or sometimes a great guest lecture.

*After the grueling day, the students unwind with a cup of hot chai and fried maggi at
TIKKA. The greenery around is so mesmerizing; that it entices them to take a long
stroll along the lush green paths. They also take the heat off by engaging in a game of
basketball or lawn tennis.

*But KGPians never forget that they have an assignment to submit tomorrow, so
they rush back and start working on it, sometimes alone, sometimes as a group. The
brainstorming is at its best when they are having dinner at VEGGIES.

*Few hours into the assignment, they realize that they have to put up a good fight against
their drooping eyelids which makes them rush to CCD for a steaming mug of coffee.

*Finally KGPians return to their rooms and hit off their bed realizing that their day has
come to an end with just a few hours for their day to begin.

Meet you tomoro with a new past taking you back to the day 1 we visited the campus !

do we need to separately apply for MHRM or in a single form both the program can be applied?
i know it's to early to ask.
i am asking about last year process...
May be this year process will change.
and what about gd/pi.
whether it happens with PGDM or separate?

Hi Kumar
This is Life @ MHRM thread and as you said its too early to ask but stillThe admission process has no connection with VGSOM . Itz a different application different GD/PI ... And for your info no IIT offers PGDM they offer you master degrees. All the Best.

P.S: Cat Score is taken for admission process this time.

Now comes the First day In IIT Kharagpur

Entered the campus late night and had a informal meet with all the classmates of the new batch. We are allotted one of the latest halls among the 22 halls of residence in IIT with a dual room share and a attached bathroom resembling the Apartment architecture.The first day started with the introductory seminar for all the PG students in the auditorium by the dean and heads of different departments and we were asked to move to a different auditorium for the registration process which is just 1 km away from the present location. Long lines to stand and hot sun welcomed us to the IIT. After registration which ended in the late afternoon all of us rested our poor souls for a sleep followed by a delicious dinner ( being the first day ) in the night.

P.S:Food is not too good nor too bad all the stay we had till now for the past 2 months . After all 9000 bucks for 6 months .

Orientation by seniors

Here comes the tough and interesting part of the newbiees in to IIT
The orientation classes by the seniors lasted for 10 days with every day a new event .

1.Treasure hunt in pairs (girl and a bicycle ) which resulted minimum loss of 2-3 pounds of weight

P.S:Koolkid and his team won this

2.Business Quiz


4.Ad Design and making



7.Case study and review of books, Movies

P.S: Seniors noted almost each and every point of juniors and graded them accordingly for committee selection

Besides this we also had introductory speeches from seniors of various committees and about the college department and placements

We came to know about each other in the very early 10 days

Now comes the Freshers day
It started with the hours of time dedicated to make up ourselves specially the girls ... and it started at 8 pm and ended at 1 am.

It revealed the real faces of the seniors and juniors

The following are the events that took place in the Freshers party

1.Paper couple dance
2.D.J remix and dancing with hearts and souls
3.Dances for the latest songs with different themes like bhojpuri spiderman , rhymes
4.Then a Ramp walk which was a curtain raiser for the models inside us
5.Skits with interchange of sex
6.Special Dance performance by the seniors
7.MR. And Miss Fresher
8.Askal Whiskal Kiskal Drinking competition between juniors and seniors

Loads of fun which words cannot explain joined with delicious food and b**z*

The fun thing is juniors have to pair up with seniors to enter the freshers party . Some used Brains and some used CCD and some created ways creatively which reduced the tonnes of gap between both the batches

Now after all the fun its time for Committee selections

The various committees present in MHRM are
