A new phase of my life began on 27th June, 2017 when I received a mail mentioning the much-awaited confirmation of my admission into the Indian Institute of Management, Kashipur. I had a short window to complete my further proceedings and life was never the same since then as I had my first challenge of managing my time constructively even before stepping into the college. I had a baggage of emotions primly being determined to perform at "The" place and anxiety.
Journey to Kashipur station was an opportunity for my mind to contemplate on the fact that I did make it to one of the elite institutes in India. Unlike the reticent person I am, it was a discovery of an outgoing and a boisterous person in me more like bringing out a similar stardust from parallel universe. A stardust I retained in me forever, in which my classroom played a very huge role. In one such occasion of my social media rituals, a friend of mine who is pursuing his masters in Georgia State University, he opined that the classrooms resembled an acoustic theatre, the sliding green boards and the aura is something that only a rare breed can be a part of! Little did I knew that this rare breed is a part of crème de la crème.
Being frank, initial lectures were daunting. On a lighter note, it was more like a Chinese movie with German subtitles. Professors, at the blink of an eye, had all the newcomers in their grip. Attending classroom lectures was sacrosanct to everyone. I used a word acoustic in the previous paragraph to glorify the fact that our skippers use American made premium Bose speakers to enlighten us. The experience that I had is the one that would be remaining with me forever.
Which Company in Aditya Birla Group I would like to work for?
If given a chance to choose, I would like to go with Aditya Birla Fashion and Retail Limited. There are two primary reasons for this. First, I feel that retail is one such important forms of business that ensures a customer experience at a personal level using multiple elements like touch, smell, feel etc. and this experience is what I as an aspiring marketer believe in firmly. Second, I love that fact that fashion is such a segment that converts a mere physiological need into something that a person relates to with self-esteem, where I as a marketer would flourish.
