ISB Solstice

This year's alumni reunion is dedicated to the founding batch to mark the 5th anniversary at ISB. There were close to 150 alums in campus. The timing could not have been more perfect - break for the students, christmas and the placement season is about to begin. The event kicked off with the inauguration from the Dean.

One alum recalled a quip:
M is busy taking a nap at the last bench in SAIT class. Professor Banker is discussing about Intel. He turns around and poses a question to students 'So why do you think Intel decided to do away with their memory chips?'. He directs the question straight to our M. She is nudged to reality by her neighbour only to realize the unaware of the situation. Involutarily she blurt out "Sir, it depends". Professor hails the response - 'Yes it all depended on ...' and went on to give an explanation. Smartly M pitches at the end 'Sir that was what I meant'! Full CP points awarded to M.

Photocontest judge and Well known cine photographer Avinash Gowarikar (of the Dus and Lagaan fame) partly stole the show with his insights in photography and education. Apart from these I didnt grasp much from the talks - I was trying hard to remain awake. I had slept at 5am only to be woken up NJ at 9am to inform that the event was about to start. Being part of the inauguration group, I had to show up. I contributed something meaningful by inviting alums for the speaker series and creating the poster for the event.

Placements will begin soon and with the alums coming in, the atmosphere is febrile for gyaan sessions and resume & interview tips (the last time we met our alums was during our orientation).
