Closely-Knit Community – Anubhav, FMS Delhi
For me, the unique selling point of FMS has to be its closely-knit community. This is something people outside would not believe as it doesn’t have a residential program but that does not stop FMS from being a family. I have lived on a large campus during my under-graduation but have never witnessed the community of a campus so close to each other. It has been a delight to be a part of a group of people who live, breathe and work with and for each other.
Memorable classroom experience of B-School:
One of the most memorable classroom experience in FMS was when a group of seniors showcased their dreams in front of my batch. A few of the seniors had gathered and informed the group about things they are really passionate about. They had made presentations and videos and there was one such video which caught my eye. It was about a senior, Omkar, whose brother inspired him to start rowing. He took up rowing as a sport and participated in professional competitions in India and abroad. Along with his brother, Omkar managed to win the national rowing competition only after a lot of years of struggle and hard work. To go through a lot of hardships must have been nothing short of devastatingly demotivating, but still managing to win the National Medal is quite an astounding achievement. After watching the video, I had goose bumps over my arm. Such were the emotions flowing through in the video.
Introduction to a few students of FMS – MBA (Full Time) 2020:
A batchmate of mine, Prateek Raina is someone with values of the highest order. He is a guy who helped a girl when a bunch of bullies were trying to eve-tease her. He came to her rescue and fought with the bullies to help the girl get away from her perpetrators. Apart from being a part-time superhero, he loves to sing and cook. He might just be the only guy who can tell exactly which variety of ‘daal’ we are having for dinner along with details of the nutritional value of its components.
Ever seen a person getting a sugar rush ? Well that is Vrinda Bhatnagar for you. Get her a brownie loaded with ice cream and chocolate syrup and see her unfold the hidden traits. She would laugh uncontrollably, TALK-A-LOT, smile at stupid things and crack the lamest jokes.
One of the incidents as quoted by her was when she, along with her group of friends, walked down the entire market lane distributing free hugs to strangers (girls only), talking about random stuff, being who they are without any filters and making the most out of the one free hour they stole from the busy schedule by bunking the last lecture at school.
Mridul is one bold girl. She is one of those inspirational women who’s not scared to take the game to anyone. Mridul loves travelling. Her desire to experience different terrains has taken her to solo trips to places like Kheerganga and Goa. She is one of those girls that shuns away the fear while motivating others to follow suit.
Most students breeze through their under-graduation without lifting an eyelid once. But Garima Gupta was different. At the age of twenty, this stud girl was already a CA, CS, and a B.Com. degree holder. Garima’s sincerity is something who all students could aspire to achieve.
The favourite company from ABG:
I would like to work for Grasim Industries Limited. The brand – Grasim, is one that has been capturing markets in different sectors for decades. I’m quite fascinated by the story of Grasim in the textile industry, where it has made its mark by becoming the leading global player in Viscose Staple Fibre (VSF). Being an engineer from the field of Textile Technology, I would be quite interested in knowing how the business works from the scientific as well as a management perspective.
