IIM Shillong – Crazy Batchmates

Introducing some of my crazy batchmates

  • K. Sarath Chandra, the first name that comes to my mind when I think of crazy batchmates. Having studied in reputed institutes I got to interact with many people, but this guy is different. He takes a lot of load on him. If someone tells him something, he would think in all possible negative ways and believe that it’s going to happen to him in the same way. He recently cried after drinking saying that he has everything in his life, except for a girl and he does not know how to even talk to them. This guy is interestingly uninteresting. Now, he is even worried about this article too.
  • Akashdeep Vimal, halke mei lo yaar (take things lite), the one thing that is a differentiating factor is that he is the chilliest guy with the swag. He wants the life without any load or complexity. He does his activities only when he wants to do. He does not even let some to enter his room or talk to him if he feels so. What I feel is to say or to do so, one needs courage. The moment when the first trimester results were out, he woke up read the mail and slept, after a couple of minutes he realised he was failed in one subject, after realisation he thought for a second and slept again.
  • Arjun Venugopal, the guy who I had a little conversation with. But this guy is one of the interesting batchmates. He is able to do all the tasks given in the class, competitions, etc. and still he will sleep as per his timetable 11pm to 6am. Whatsoever be the topic, he participates in the discussions, personally, I will be jealous of him seeing his knowledge, his confidence while he speaks and his tone with maturity.
  • Mr. Sudheer, seriously he needs some understanding people beside him. He is the central database for many things in the campus. He gives his full dedication when he wants to achieve something. Of course, he has the knowledge, but he does not have patience. He does the thing and then thinks. Later he would understand that he should do it in the other way. This guy is too emotional when it comes to people around him or even dogs. Coming to the craziest thing, he is very lazy, that he eats breakfast and then thinks that he forgot to brush his teeth.


Which ABG company would you want to work for and why?

I would like to work in Aditya Birla Fashion and Retail Limited, because I’m interested in fashion and this company has the most popular brands in India. This business helps me in building my career with continuous learning and gives me challenging situations. I want to learn like how the company is able to cater different segments and targeting them in the right way because most of their brands are similar, even they have their stores competing in their neighbouring building. Also, ABG has textile, synthetic and cotton mills, so one can have a great scope for learning and development.
