IME Party 2012


Life at IITK can't get better than this. After the high octane freshers night by seniors, now it was our turn to script another memorable night. We, the new entrants of IITK, had to organize a party for entire IITK IME department (MBA, M.Tech, PhD)- students, professors and their family. The celebration was much eagerly awaited and anticipated after the unique experince of fresher's party.



After days of discussions and plannings, the D'day finally came. The theme for the party was traditional. The event started at 8 pm by the welcome ceremony of all the distinguished professors and their families.  The event, which was hosted by Praveen and Nidhi, had a lot of fun moments. Professors were invited to the stage one-by-one and they were given certain fun tasks, which they carried out with lots of enthusiasm. Their performance on the stage showed us a completely different side of our professors! Anoop sir's bhangra dance, Devlina madam's bengali song, Rachrella sir's prank and Kripashankar sir's speech in sankrit were the attarctions,to name a few, that entertained the whole crowd. It was certainly a splendid experience. After the performances, momentos were given by the 1st Year students to all the professors.


Adding to the fun were superb performances of Abhishek Pradhan's mimicry of various personalities, Manoj Jhawar's singing and guitar performances and sensational guitar play by M Tech students. The IME party hosted a great platform for all the final year students, 1st year students and professors to get well-versed with each other and get a feel of IITK life.

And now it was time for the much awaited event of the day- DJ! As always, this time too everyone was sensational on the DJ floor, dancing to the tunes of foot tapping music. The dancing floor saw some of the best dancing skills by students.


This party just marked the beginning of the 2 wonderful years that we are going to spend here! It was one of the best parties that we experienced so far, and credit must be given to Ravi Kiran Bhupati and Ankita Sahare- the organizers of the event- for making this an unforgettable experience.

An Introduction to the batch of 2019-21

“ It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change. "                                   A new zeal, vigour, and an unquenchable thirst for proving oneself is what describes MBA batch of 2019-21. 52 of us set foot on the pavement of a new journey and needless to say it has been unprecedented. Be it the early morning presentations, the stark midnight deadlines, or the never-ending case studies covering the gamut of concepts and context, each one of these activities can vouch for it. It has hardly been a month, yet the batch has acclimatized well with the life of one the most coveted institutes in the country, IIT Kanpur.

Mr. Praveen Tripathi, CEO of Magic 9 (Media and Analytic)

Mr Praveen Tripathi began the seminar by giving a brief introduction about the classification of households in India. Sir mentioned about the New Consumer Classification System (NCCS) in which there are 12 grades of classification varying from A1, A2, A3, B1, B2, C1, C2, D1, D2, D3, E1, E2, and E3. He contrasted it with the old classification system in which there were 8 grades only. The basic theme behind all this classification is the life score which is assigned to all the households. Life score is calculated based on the education of chief owner and consumer durable. And the discrimination is measured by the Larenz Curve and Gini coefficient. The major drawback of this system as mentioned by sir was that the consumer durable penetration changes faster than education or occupation level. “Inside every transaction there is a knowledge, you need to decode it.” With this quote sir gave a brief about television audience metrics in India which started with Doordarshan Audien
