New Beginnings @ Great Lakes Gurgaon…

Landed at the Delhi airport and the first thing I thought was that my face was going to tear off because of the 40 degree heat wave. It made the Chennai heats seem like a breeze. FACT!

Thank God for the AC cab, I made it to the college. The admissions team handed over a few documents for me to fill and then there was the long wait for sorting through the fee, accommodation and scorecard papers. Finally, I was done with the registration process around 4 pm and was ready to be taken to what would be my home for the next year.

Day 1 of induction started with a bang and gave us a proper feel of the year that was to be.  With more than 10 hours of interactive sessions with our Directors and professors and fantastic Powertalks from CXOs of 2 companies – Mr. Sandeep Aggarwal, Founder and CEO, Shopclues.com and Mr. Eric Fridolfsson, South Asia Head, IKEA, followed by a farewell cum welcome party in the evening – our day was jam packed. And all this, even before the course had actually begun. Looked like it would turn out to be a year to look forward to!

The first day also taught us a lesson in contingency planning for the lectures that were supposed to be round up by 5:30pm continued till 7:30pm leaving us with no chance to go back to our hostels and change. And we did well for beginners. For, come 8 pm, we were at Club Rhino, ready to party in our full fledged business attires!

Seeing the professors and seniors recollecting their time together made us realize that we were only a year away from a party like this organized for us and that, indeed, there was no time to stand and stare in a yearlong MBA program!

But all good things come to an end. And so did the party. And finally, we headed back to our rooms wondering whether we could battle the hangover and wake up early enough to make it to the Convocation the next morning!
