Uniqueness’ Abode – IIM Kashipur

Surrounded by the Lush greenery of the Iconic Corbett forest area IIM Kashipur enjoys the gift of nature that any metropolitan could only wish for. When I started putting my thoughts on paper, I realized that there are a plethora of reasons and instances which will glorify the uniqueness of the institute.

Just like Beauty, the uniqueness of any Institute can’t be measured by any one or two factors. It is the collective cause of the environment, culture, Alums, system, support and the list go on and on. The immense support one receives for trying out may be a new idea or a new venture or even a new passion is very powerful. To give a personal example I was always very passionate about standup comedy but very anxious at the same time to go on stage, the institute provided me with the courage and confidence to overcome the hurdle called anxiety and stage fear. In the month of May, I performed in four different locations in Bangalore to an audience who appreciated my effort as well as my humour.

The instance although very exclusive draws an image of the culture and the attitude of the stakeholders towards any idea which is not conventional. The campus life builds an intellect of humble, progressive and liberal mentality in its students a result of which is literally visible in the success rate of the Alums. In the words of American motivational speaker Robert H. Schuller “As we grow as unique persons, we learn to respect the uniqueness of others.” The institute fosters, nurtures and help break the shackles of inhibition from all its stakeholders thereby generating intellectually Enlighted business leaders to the society. And that’s one of the many reasons for the uniqueness of the campus.

Aditya Birla Group I would like to work for:

Being a marketing and advertisement enthusiast with a keen interest in the brand building, the ABG group that is apt for my aptitude and attitude is Aditya Birla Fashion and Retail Limited. With India’s millennial and post-millennial customers becoming more of brand and quality conscious compared to the price conscious baby boomers, generation X, and generation Y, the opportunity in the market is humungous for fashion brands with the increased portrayal, acceptance and presence of fashion of various sorts on various social media platforms.
