The News: In Retrospection.

It’s a bit late this time around ...but I have a number of good news to share ... all are etched in everyone’s memory and can be recited without any hiatus... such was the charisma of events and so was our euphoria...

The IME party...the scintillating IME party ... conspicuous presence of all IME students, professors and their spouses mixed with flamboyant performance by students made it one of the memorable events in our premature IIT Kanpur life... It helped the students and the professors come closer. The excellent mimicry, poem citing and dialogue delivery by students left everyone mesmerized and took every professor back to their own student life (well, I guess so ;))... The party ended with few other-than-academic words by the professors.

The party was followed by small (sic!) Dussehra break which was first opportunity before us to head for home leaving all books and assignments locked in our hostel.

We came back and as if people knew that the break was not enough to re-energize us... so Antragini was organized ... Antragini as usual was at its top scale. The theme this time around was superhero. This four days long event changed the aura of IIT Kanpur... roads were made dance floor and thousands of people danced on the beats of DJ... A number of enthralling events ranging from rock show to fashion show kept us deprived of sleep... The icing on the cake was Sunidhi Chauhan’s performance which gave a perfect end to the event.

A party may end ... an event may wait for next year, but there is no dearth of parties here... we have celebrated many of our classmates’ birthday and the party is still on...


Last but not the least, our classmate Alok Jain, MBA 1st year, recently won Best speaker’s award at the Times of India Debate contest organized in Lucknow. Heartiest Congratulations to Alok.

Hope you too are living your life to the fullest and celebrating each small and big happiness.

Keep the party on!

See you soon !

The Dawn of A New Beginning - MBA Batch 2017-19

“Opportunities multiply as they are seized.” -Sun Tzu




‘I am an IITian’, even after two months here at IIT Kanpur this one line still fills our heart with excitement. 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…
