One month into the course and I think I’ve finally settled down. I’ve gotten used to the hectic schedule and the concept of ‘Constant Evaluation.’ But when there are umpteen options and distractions, it’s difficult to prioritize the measly 24 hours that you get.
We have three quizzes this week and our Mid Terms are in about 13 days. Right now the only thing i'm looking forward to is this saturday's party
08-03-2004, 08:32 PM
well i would have never demanded it before coming to IMI....but now it seems (especially this week.....3 quizzes, assignments submission,bcs presentation....phew!! :shock: )...24 hrs is a cruel injustice done to us....yes john not only u the whole hostel has suddenly realized that prioritising ur time is the buzz word.
cafe, amphi,tuck shop.....every place suddenly looks so empty...
ppl work hard this week n wait 4 d grand thanksgiving party...dis saturday night.
08-04-2004, 04:25 PM
what will you call a day when you expect everything and get nothing......yeah v had that sort of day today.
yesterdays hard work n empty amphi resulted in no short term gains....as the profs bowled us with a googly by not taking a single quiz...hopes being shattered....well we all had prepared hard :wink: for the expected three quizzes, did we not fellas.....
now we live to fight for another day.....and by the way....lifes' not so easy....finance club's quiz,crosswords n presentation this evening @ 6:00 pm n marketing club's finals of ADVENTURE quiz tomorrow @ 6:00 pm....
so lets wage the next battle :twisted:

The CII Summit was a real eye opener and I got to listen to some of the best in the field of ‘marketing.’ I must confess that the food at the Taj was certainly a treat. But of course, this was strictly an academic exercise. Some of the interesting speakers were Sanjiv Gupta, Suhel Seth, Anil Menon and Piyush Pandey. I was lucky enough to meet some them after the session.
Mid-terms are starting on Monday and MSM (Mathematics & Statistics for Mang.) is driving me insane. I have MSM and ME (Managerial Economics) on Monday, OB (Organizational Behavior) on Wednesday and Accounts on Saturday.
Our stock club “Dalal Street” will be operational in another week. Donations and contributions are certainly welcome.
08-21-2004, 11:38 AM
Y u require donations for dala street ??/
08-21-2004, 03:53 PM

08-21-2004, 07:47 PM
Never thought that scene is so bad at IMI that ut require general donations to suppport a interest club at IMI.
08-24-2004, 10:17 PM

Life at IMI has never been so relaxed and chilled out. The third trimester has ended for the first year students, the seniors will also be free in another ten days time. Most first year Hostelers have left for their homes before the Summer Project starts. Those who are left are also having fun....playing Games like AOE and NFS on the Network and Cricket, Volleyball on the real playground.
Watching India Pakistan match has always been the best thing but watching it together with your classmates, Seniors, students of other courses, Faculty members and staff members is a different thing altogether. Every single taken by the Indian team was cheered by the crowd and when the batsman (Dhoni) hit a six, the Ecstatic crowd made so much noise that I suspect even the IIFT guys would have heard that
Life is fun now...and it will be even better when all the first year guys come back.
