IIM Shillong Is An Emotion In Itself | G Vidya

It was a pleasant Thursday morning, when I landed at the Guwahati airport with my parents. From there began a journey, which has been exceptional till now. The cab ride from Guwahati to Shillong was eye opening for me. The scenic beauty on both sides of the roads and the landscape changes were mesmerizing. We reached the campus after a long yet refreshing ride of 4 hours. As soon as I entered the campus, I immediately fell in love with it. The small green hatched roof rooms to the bamboo walk way, everything was different from a typical college campus yet very homely.

Then I saw the magic happen in front of me.

There were hundreds of blank and confused students with their parents, yet everything was organized. I experienced the true meaning of a student-driven campus. We had seniors accompanying and guiding us on each and every step. After the registrations, we were allotted our rooms, the place which will be our own little home for the next two years. I was eagerly waiting to meet my roommate, with whom I was going to spend and share my room for the next year. Later that day, I arranged my room and went out to meet my batchmates and interacted with them. That is when I realized that each batchmate and senior has a very diverse background and there is a lot to learn from each one of them.

The next morning, I met my roommate and immediately realized that we were going to have an amazing time together. She was from a different state and from a different academic background, but we have a lot in common. Both of us have the same motive of pursuing an MBA and many of our aspirations are in line. The support that we give each other has kept us motivated and inspired throughout the last few weeks. From being there for each other to ensuring that we finish all our assignments on time, all of it wouldn’t have been possible without her. I should also give credit to my wingmates, batchmates and seniors for helping each other at each step and ensuring that IIM Shillong is a home away from home.

After spending a couple of weeks here, I realized that IIM Shillong is not just a college but an emotion in itself.

Getting an opportunity to work with the Aditya Birla Group will be a dream come true for me. If given an opportunity I would like to work with Aditya Birla Capital, as I have keen interest in the field of asset management and Aditya Birla Capital is one of the few reputed companies in this field.
