  • The King of Festivals – Onam

    Joseph John (PGP 2012-14) relives his memories of Onam while on campus…     We all have some childhood memories that we cherish.

To the guys on campus still reading this: ’Aap dude/dudette hai!’ So we wake up one day and a very famous newspaper, in which we have about eight ‘page 3s’, has a front page story on a scandalous MMS in JNU, Delhi. An ‘administrator’ from the institute issues a statement which goes: “If college students of both sexes are made to share a hostel, all they would then do is…

  • The evolution of a perspective

    Blesson Gregory (PGP 2012-14) on how his perspective of IIMB really changed.. The first time you lay your eyes upon the entrance of IIM Bangalore, it reminds you of the opulent gates of a palace; symbolizing the abode of a privileged few and thereby their segregation from the vast majority. The first time you enter the campus, you walk in with an air of conquest – the kind of narcissistic indulgence Napoleon may have harboured after his every victory.
