A Place Like No Other – The IIFT Delhi Campus

“I climbed up and up, walking the clouds and exploring the sky

When just for an instant, my feet slipped and I almost fell

But wings of wisdom held me high.”

 

It was summers and this girl was lost

Twenty-three long years and this confusion was the cost?

Days and months stretched past

As my horizon remained grey and overcast.

And then I heard of this place

A wonderous place without borders

Where ambitions are encouraged and dreams found a base

And all my hopes could find a loving embrace.

I chose to give my luck a try

If I said I didn’t get stuck sometimes, that would be a lie

But my dream was close and my heart was strong

So I did my best and hence, could do no wrong.

Before I knew it, I had good news!

June came and I found myself without an excuse,

A student of one of the best institutions in the land

Sure to leave my mark forever in the sand.

The D-day was upon me soon,

And so I began moving into the hostel in the afternoon.

Entering the campus where the next 2 years I would dwell,

I felt almost as if I were under a spell

I climbed up and up, walking the clouds and exploring the sky

When just for an instant, my feet slipped and I almost fell

But wings of wisdom held me high.

The first few days were especially hard

The distance from home like a glass shard in my heart

Constant surprises kept cropping up, and I stayed on guard

With a little wonder and a little trepidation in part.

In the midst of a sea of lost lambs,

A treasure trove of kindred spirits I found

In sickness and health, projects and exams

My friends helped me get off the ground!

Like birds of a feather,

We ran about together

From the Chamber of Secrets to the Lover’s Lane

We laughed off the strain and kept each other sane.

With my friends along for the ride,

And the seniors by our side

The coming summer holds many delights

Especially, with our dreams so close in our sights.

And I? A strange mixture of excitement and nervousness, am I

With a company such as Aditya Birla Capital, does my interest lie

Working in its esteemed halls is my aim,

And a past background in finance lends credence to my claim.
