• Dhwani – The Soulful Sound of IIMB

    Contributed By: Thomas Pegu Edited By: Beulah Madda “Music is the perfect blending of poetry and melody. It is a charismatic approach to human thoughts layered with dulcet melody.” Dhwani, since its inception in 1982, has always been active in the mission to keep the spirit of music alive in the campus. The music club has been formed in order to encourage talent in music – instrumental as well as vocal. The goal is to do justice to the huge musical talent pool we have so that the music association is not just a dalliance and lost amid all the chaos. The club gives a platform to express melody and…

  • It’s War Alright! The Batch Fought, The Batch Won!

    Contributed By: Akanksha Dewaker “After the Decision Science quiz on 21st, the whole batch was in a sombre mood. And look at us all dancing mad at an imaginary baraart 2 days later” – Arushi Verma, PGP1 student The Saturday afternoon started with planning and trying to put a strategy for the three-day onslaught of fun and competition. But the end of the day, plans were put aside as the instincts took over as the sections came together to fight for the ultimate bragging rights. The War of Sections is an informal inter-sectional cultural competition where the first years take charge to conduct and compete for the title through various student…

  • A Night of Musical Wonder – Spicmacay 2018

    Legend has it that Miya Tansen could perform extraordinary feats through his music; he could, the legends go, melt a marble slab through his rendering of Raag Malkauns or light lamps by singing Raag Deepak or hypnotize a deer by singing Raag Mrigranjini. He could even make it rains as per his whims by singing Raag Megh or bloom flowers by singing Raag Bahar. A bit far-fetched one might think! Melt marbles or not but anyone who attended Padma Shri Ustad Faiyaz Wafizuddin Dagar would agree that music so pure and spiritual sure can melt one’s heart. As IIM B played host to one of the most celebrated exponents of…

  • Breaking the Ice!

    Contributed By: Nalli Naimisha Edited By: Anirudh Agrawal No, I am not complaining. Even I love the Bangalore weather just like you do. But I caught the flu, and the weather is so not helping me recover. Attending classes till 4pm was a huge task itself. And by the time classes were over, all I wanted to do was take a pill and chill. Pre-reads, assignments, case studies, project work, IIMB made sure I had no time to sleep. And then I received a message in our section group. “Carrom at 8:30pm and Throwball at 9:30pm”. You must have guessed my reaction by now. Icebreaker is the informal five-day sports…

  • How We Need to do our Bit to Start the Conversation about LGBTQIA Rights

    Contributed By: Malti Gupta Edited By: Chandrasekhar Muramalla Stereotypes and discrimination towards LGBTQIA is very prevalent in Indian society but we hope that the current generation of the elite can bring a change with their greater social consciousness. It’s important for these future business managers and leaders to engage in such discussions to prevent the biases in recruitment, boardroom decisions, framing policies while creating an inclusive culture at their workplace. Taking this into consideration, IIM Bangalore observed Pride Month this year through its Diversity and Inclusion club – QUEst IIMB – with much gusto and it ended on a great note with an informal discussion on Queer identities on 30th…
