A Perfectly Serene Place – MDI

It was 14th of June – The day of MDI shortlist’s registration. Having given up the shortlist reaching my waitlist number, I was out of station with my family. Then suddenly a mail came stating that I had been shortlisted for admission in MDI, Gurgaon and the last date of registration is 14th of June itself! Baffled, I took the earliest train back home and went to the college on 15th itself. I was relieved to find that I could complete the process by 20th and join then. The first time when I explored the campus, I was overwhelmed with joy to have gotten into such a green, beautiful and just perfectly serene place for the upcoming 2 years into my Post-Graduation.  So, after arranging the fees, I joined by 18th of June to figure out that I had missed a lot of important things in the Induction period – many tasks whose deadlines had already passed and many sleepless nights that my colleagues had spent in the campus doing them. I was too scared since the buzz around the campus was of supreme fear from seniors. My roommate informed me of the possibility of getting thrashed due to incompletion regardless of my late joining. Thus, I had to shift in with my stuff earlier than planned. A week of hard work and getting all the previously pending as well as the new tasks done, I was finally relieved of all the stress. That was when our seniors threw a fresher’s party for us! The tough induction period was finally over! That seemed like the best feeling ever. Since that day onwards, it has been a pleasure staying at MDI – The conduct, the cleanliness, the greenery, and the most delightful of all – The Mandevians. Having gotten along with the people, I feel the most content having gotten the best classmates & batch mates I could have ever hoped for and I’m really looking forward to cherish my time at MDI.



I would like to join Aditya Birla Fashion and Retail Limited because of multiple reasons. Firstly, Aditya Birla Group is the owner of the largest apparel brands of India and it’s doing very well in the sector. Some examples of the brands under its hood are: Louis Phillipe, Van Heusen, Allen Solly, Peter England, Pantaloons, Forever 21, Simon Carter, Ted Baker and Planet Fashion. Thus, there is a very good scope of getting promoted and gaining a higher stature in any of the businesses. Also, the apparel market in India is a significant market and is showing a constant and a significant growth rate. Secondly, this is a business line that aligns well with my interests as well as my strengths.
