Amaethon 2010-Day 1

day 2 was the day when we reached the campus of IIMA.we were escorted by a huge billboard of Amaethon 2010 and security cover guiding us to the famed Louis Kahn Plaza of IIM-A where the registration and other formalities were supposed to happen. We silently reached the LKP(as it's called) looking everywhere trying to see if this is the way the country's best MBA institute should like and to our amazement we found a huge gathering of MBA students there trying to form a line for their registration. It was an amazing and exciting scene to see a gathering of close to 1000 participants of same background from MDI,IIFT,SYMBI,IMT,NITIE etc. We all just saw each other and figured out tacitly that the next 3 days are going to be an awesome experience. We had somehow managed to finish with our acco, food and registration formalities by noon and hurriedly finished our lunch. By that time the whole process went so late that the speakers and chief guests had came to the venue and we had to leave our luggage at the PR desk and pace for the auditorium.

The keynote address was given the faculty advisor of IIMA and a senior corporate from DENA bank. I must say that the speech and presentation given by the gentlemen was very didactic and if I am being honest to myself it was bit boring and disappointing to some extent. We all had came to hear some inspiring and real things to which we all could relate to and here was this guy who was deep in delineation in the technicalities of his business unoblivious to the fact the audience was least interested. But it was very informative and I kept myself engaged throughout the speech by taking down important notes.

By evening during the high tea we took our bags and went to our allotted rooms. We were astonished to see the superb arrangement done for us as we had got acco in a vacant bungalow meant for the faculties which had all the facilities. I met some of my old engg buddies too who had got admission in different MBA colleges.a very good platform to network and i am glad that now I know a lots of students from different renowned colleges like symbi,IIFT etc!

Day 1 ended with exploring campus, gorging on good food, checking out beautiful babes and solving the case study which was due for the next day!!
