My Study Circle in IIM-A

- by Vinamra Srivastava *

You know what one of the best things about this place is? Well, yeah, the professors are great, so is the infrastructure... but what truly amazes me are the people here!!! Yep, me talking about my batch mates. With the entire batch being divided into four sections, you really don't get to know everyone closely.

The people you interact with the most are your study group mates, your dorm mates and your section mates. In the first term, the study groups were formed by the PGP office. However, in further terms, one is free to choose the group one wanted to be part of. My group initially was a five member group including me, and in the second term, another guy joined us. 

Let me start with the lady first. She also happens to be the CR of our class. A commerce graduate from Chennai. Worked for a couple of years before coming here. One of the few girls (or perhaps the only one) in the country to have converted all six IIMs' calls. A very confident and no-nonsense girl, who is never afraid to speak her mind. Being the CR is not an easy job and she has handled the post extremely well so far. A very caring person at heart and a great pal to hang around with, she is a great team player, always willing to shoulder responsibilities. In fact, she sorts of binds our group together when we at times get relaxed, and brings us back on track.

Next is a guy from IIIT Hyderabad. A 99.99 percentile with a keen knack in finance. I-Banks are where he belongs to and am so glad that's where he is heading for for his summers. A topper during his earlier years, he is one scholar with a high ambition and is certainly a person to go to when all the finance and accounts jargon goes above your head. A person who is always enthusiastic to discuss and debate about any topic under the sun and is also candid enough to accept views contrary to his.

Then comes this musical bond from IIT Kharagpur. An exceptional piano / guitar player, he sure set the stage alive by his performances during the T-Nites. And had he not been at WIMWI, I am sure some rock band or the other would have welcomed him with open arms. With his boyish charms and cool persona, he sure is one fun guy to hang out with. One of the toppers of the ABM course, but a very down to earth personality, he sure does rock. Someone you are always at ease with.

This other guy is one of those different and controversial persons you at times meet. A mechenical engineer, he is the senior-most person in the group with a 4-odd years experience at a huge automobile company. And the insight he brings into discussions because of this experience is immense. I said controversial as lots of his ideas and analysis are out-of-the-box and revolutionary that often create a stir and sound weird but are often very insightful. I am amazed by his GK, right from Metallica to Russian Revolution and none of us could match the number of hours he spends with books in the first term, he hardly slept, I guess.

Last, but certainly not the least, is this don from IIT Delhi. He joined our group in the second term, and oh boy, were we lucky or what!!! With an enriching work experience in an infrastructure major, he is in the race to be one of the I-Schools at WIMWI (that's what the toppers are called here, Industry Scholars).

But the best thing is that he is not at all the mugging kinds. He is sleeping every time you call him and still ends up getting A's in every subject. A very caring person at heart, a jolly self at parties and a good sportsman (I could hardly pick his service in TT the first time I played him), he sure is one of the most talented persons I have met. And yeah, he is good at report writing, getting A in WAC is no kid's play. A great team player, compromising and understanding. 

We all have a great time whenever we have group meets. I agree, we often do actual constructive work for less than 30-40% of the time and the rest of the time is spent in discussing and chatting about anything under the sun, right from who our first crushes were to whether Bombay is better or Delhi!!! But that's the whole fun. That's what keeps us going as a group. That's what ensures we all are at complete ease with each other, and consequently, not only do well as a study group, but also make pals for a lifetime.

It's a super experience to spend so much time with such an awesome bunch of people. They all are so diverse, so talented, so intelligent, so assiduous, yet so caring, so much fun, helpful and down to earth. Every single moment I spend with them is a time for immense learning for me. There's always something new to learn and enjoy being in such great company, and that's what makes WIMWI so very special!
