IIM Ahmedabad: Reflections

So, 2 years at IIMA are now over, and 2 months hence, it is still taking me some time to let it all sink in. The place felt so much at home, that now when I sit at the window in my house, sipping my coffee and trying to reflect on the time gone by, … Continue reading

A day in the life: IIMA #2

I posted about my typical day during PGP1 some time back (although “there is no typical day at IIMA” is what the cliche suggests).

Joe’s is this really awesome coffee place where you find tens of different types of coffee – and the white interiors make it the perfect place to spend an afternoon. A classmate, John Levin introduced me to … Continue reading
