Chinese Delegates in IIT Kanpur

Hindi Chine bhai bhai”, the feelings associated with this slogan were once again revived here at IIT Kanpur, when Chinese delegates from Chinese embassy introduced themselves and greeted us with “Namaskar”. Recently, a group of three Chinese delegates visited IIT Kanpur and interacted with faculty and students of the institutes. It is considered as a forward step in strengthening the relations between two countries in technical and business areas. They had a small talk with the students and gave a presentation about the various economics policies of their country.

The comparisons between India and China in various fields were the main attraction of the talk. They also discussed in broad sense about their vision and various steps taken by their government to increase their GDP four times by 2020. The talk on the issues of inflation control, problem and challenges of the fourth largest economy of the world caught the attention of every one present in the auditorium. When it came to the cultural differences in both the countries, the auditorium filled with light environment and burst of laughter. ZEE news team was also there to cover the whole event.

At the end of the talk, a plethora of questions were asked and people were appreciated for showing a keen interest of their neighbour country. Some beautiful pictures of top Chinese universities were also shown in between. The talk concluded with the feelings that each country has its own core competency and it’s the right time to work in tandem with each other, learn from each other and cooperate each other in all the possible areas of development of both the countries. Below are some of the moments captured during the discussion.

Each one among the 54 students here who have started the journey into the MBA programme of IIT Kanpur, batch of 2017-19, feels that pride and with that equally realizes the responsibility it carries.
We started our journey here on 20th July. Meeting our batch mates for the first time still feels thrilling. Though we knew each other through the whatsapp/facebook group that was created by our seniors to make our registration process as smooth as possible. We were given several assignments before the registration to give us an inkling of the idea of how life at IIT Kanpur is going to be. Assignments were planned in a way such that we get a hands-on experience on case studies, presentations, group activities and article reading. We began burning the midnight oil as a precursor to actually doing it, and how! These assignments u…
