To my diary: Stone-walled synopsis

Each year has some milestone events in everyone’s lives, which we cherish a lot. Stepping into the stone-walled campus of IIM Bangalore was the most significant milestone for me. It was one of the best decisions of my life.

IIM Bangalore has one of the most beautiful campuses in India, with greenery all around. It was designed by the celebrated architect B V Doshi, who received the 2018 Pritzker Prize.

The temperature here is perfect throughout the year, and the city of Bangalore adds to its sheen. IIM Bangalore is one of the most inclusive campuses with almost all parts of the campus being easily accessible to everyone. The beauty of the campus is mesmerizing, and one will easily fall in love with it.

My life at IIM Bangalore has been like a memorable fast-paced roller coaster ride. I literally did everything in my first month of IIMB; every single thing that I had done before joining IIMB, i.e., my entire life activities. There were near-instantaneous times of marvelous epiphanies that whatever I had done so far was so little, yet so significant. IIM Bangalore makes you realize the importance of your life and provides you with enormous opportunities to gain new skills every day. Living in hostels again, having amazing friends and seniors, excellent facilities, supportive professors, thrilling events, fests and celebrations, L square parties, project night outs, networking and bonding, experiences with startups, VCs, entrepreneurs, summer placements and some more parties (πŸ˜›) are some of the mind-blowing memories in this short journey of 7 months. Oh yeah, let’s not forget about the education and the study hours too.

Life is all about choices. At IIMB, you are free to make your own choices. You even get to chose subjects of your preference from the third term itself, which is something unique to IIM Bangalore. When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. That’s what IIMB will teach you. There will be times when it will get insanely hard, and you might start doubting yourself. When going gets tough, the tough gets going. So never have a scintilla of doubt in your heart, ever! The support system of friends and seniors at IIMB will always be there for you. Hence, you will never be alone and IIMB will be like a family away from home.

There is so much to explore – from the shards of stars to the secrets of the seabeds. One can either dream about it or wake up and do something about it. So, Let’s do it. The Time is Now!

My first day at IIM Bangalore

Sweeping us into ecstacy,
This day finally dawned.
Finding ourselves engulfed,
In the seventh heaven and beyond.

May be a little lost,
Like an early morning frost.
But not so fragile we stand,
Rushed by memories of journey that spanned.

The wall’s exhilaration couldn’t even subside,
The green campus got our eyes open wide.
Mother nature adorning the Pritzker’s design,
Pleasure to the eyes and soul, manifestation of divine.

The names finally got their faces,
The many Hi-Hellos at all the places.
The euphoria never seems to cease,
With a delightful climate and pleasant breeze.

This place is undoubtedly the place to be,
A home sweet home and a family to be.
Day must give way to the night, but not today,
For it’s a dawn that shall never fail, we pray.

Have Faith

Just look into my eyes and behold,
For there lies a world of magic untold.
Through my eyes I shall take you there,
To a different world of only love and care.
No skies, no moons, no stars, no galaxies,
Just you and me in a world of fantasies!

Have faith in me and I will take you to a world unseen!
