Ahmedabad's Dinner with an OMPA

Its 2300 hrs and I am just back from one of the most enlightening dinners from as far as I can remember.

Anir_iim2005 a.k.a Anirban was of course our Guest of Honour today.After a 4 hour study session,7 of us (milindagrawal,jimmytiwari,kdrocks,dr.akshar,drkunjan,kanisha153 and myself) headed out to WIMWI!! There was a brief tussle at the gate with the security guard when we told him that we were "Pagalguys" (the guy thought we were insane!! which we are! ) and had come to meet another fellow Pagalguy..Anirban! At this point of time the guard was unsure,whether to call the police or the hospital,but good sense prevailed and he called Anirban(we of course were smart enough to have his Dorm and room no.!

1900 hrs and we were out on a fully guided tour of the Campus(ah IIMA ) by Anirban.From the classrooms to the dorms to the Louis Kahn Plaza,everything was enchanting to say the least as Anirban almost doubled the enthusiasm in the already super exhilarating experience.I and the rest of us are all apologies because we bombarded Anirban with questions from the campus infra to the stories behind Dorm 19!

1930 hours and we drove down to Curries(a restaurant close to IIMA)and settled down at a table.Even before Anirban or the rest of us could lay hands on the menu card the bombardment started again.Everyone asked questions ranging from B school specialisations to take to B schools one should be applying for, the negatives in taking a break from work,consulting referrals,fin or marketing,the new CAT format(inside info from IIMA),mock performances,Anirban's CAT experiences,his GDPI experiences and everyone and everything on Pagalguy!! Anirban was absolutely and totally patient in answering every question thrown to him and in a demeanor that would have put Barack Obama to shame. :)

The dinner stretched well into 1:30 hours and people concentrated less on the food and more on the conversation.2215 hrs and we were all outside the restaurant saying our customary goodbyes but we warned Anirban there'll be a number of occasions in future when he'll have to forego case studies just so that he could guide us with our prep!

So that was the end of an absolutely enlightening evening to say the least and for lack of better words! Please do not mind the long post! The day was just really good!

Cheers

Varun

P.S: Can I post the pics on this thread!!
