Life @ IITK: Impressions 2018 Event Report


  1st of April, 2018 is a day infamous for practical jokes. However, our MBA graduates definitely weren’t considering an immense amount of humour when they fought sweaty battles to create an audio-visual extravaganza that created waves across the entire IIT Campus. The night of the first belonged to the PG crowd at IIT Kanpur and the seats at OAT were filled upto the brim. The event, ‘Impressions ‘18’ saw dazzling performances, with the icing on the cake being various amazing attempts at singing, dancing, poetry and fashion walks.

Second year MBA student Neha, a vital part of music jamboree sang to various tunes, while the 2nd year students contributed with a stunning piece of a sequence of dances. The MBA 1st years took to setting the stage on fire with the fashion walk which encased the creativity of the coordinators as well as the confidence of the show stoppers.

The event also had other dances by 1st years and a dance drama portraying the progression of life of an average human being.  To create this effort, there was immense contribution from the side of Coordinators Vedang (Over-all Coordinator), Snigdha (Fashion Walk Coordinator), Ashwini (Dance Coordinator), Bahul, Shruti and Tanvi (Show Managers), Subham (Manager, Online Events), Prashant and Nonu (Volunteers). Most of the co-ordinators themselves served as participants across the various events that occurred.

Overall Manager Vedang, who also presented a very passion filled driven poem on heartbreak and addiction to smoking inspired by his observations said, “All the running around seems very logical now that everything has come together. The hard work that we put in coordinating, organizing and simultaneously have people oversee the outreach and rigorous practice that went into this event almost feels liberating now. I thank all my fellow coordinators for their support and intense dedication to make this possible. We tried to create something unique and the people made this possible with their zeal”. Other coordinators stood on the stage with applause. Show manager Bahul said, “Being a show manager gave me a unique vantage point from which to observe all events.  And the lights and music unfurling before me represented a glorious sight of what we have created as managers to possibly give away some memories aside of the usual.”

For a cultural fest, it was one where memories were created. It represented an escape from academic rigour where one could, for a moment forget and enjoy these lives and times.

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.

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.
For most of us, this is the desired path, and for the rest, it is an opportunity to relive their school days. Since we are in a place that has no norm and instead offers endless diversity, there will always be something that entertains and challenges us. It is time we took this opportunity to build a lasting relationship with our c…
