    Padmavathi Krishnamurthy, Hindustan Times, New Delhi Updated: Jun 01, 2015 Do you see these long stone corridors? Just take a walk down any of them, and you’ll find what you’re looking for. One thing is for sure, you will never reach a dead end here.” These were the first words I heard when I stepped into the verdant campus of IIM Bangalore. One year down the line, I realise that these weren’t just directions to the admissions office, they were a guide post to what will easily be the two most memorable years of my life. They say that work expands to fill the time available, but living on campus will…

  • Parents depend on MNREGA, son makes it to IIMB

    K.C. Deepika, The Hindu, BENGALURU, June 22, 2015 When Gompa Kumar Satyamurthy brought his parents to the Indian Institute of Management Bangalore (IIMB) campus, they simply said, “What a nice place.” Neither did they know what an IIM was, nor did they realise what their elder son had achieved. The village that Mr. Satyamurthy belongs to — Athava in Vizianagaram, Andhra Pradesh — has just one primary school. But after finishing Class 5, he went to a high school in a nearby village and then completed his B.Tech. in electrical and electronics engineering from Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, Kakinada. “I was the first engineer from my village,” he told The…

  • Kamal Haasan flags of Vista 2013

The keynote speaker, Padma Shri Kamal Haasan, set the tone for the vibrant fest with his candid quotes, witty one-liners, and savvy repartee.

But it was the actor who neatly turned the tables on his questioning audience when he visited the issue of piracy by saying in his familiar drawl, “Let me ask you all a very embarrassing question. How many of you watch movies on torrents?” When a number of hands flew up, the…
