It all started with my name on merit list of JBIMS and I was on cloud nine. Before the announcement of the starting date of college, the flow of assignments started with scary deadlines. My parents were planning for some tour before college and I was completely drowned in completing the assignments. The induction period was the best time anyone can have at JBIMS. With the end of induction, the committee selection process started and after that lectures. The chaotic lecture timings, the exhausting assignments and the presentation schedules hit us severely.  The one who can survive the first semester at JBIMS can survive anything life throws at him/her.
