I got a chance to visit the prestigious IIMA as my brother got selected to study among the 2007 PGP batch. We all started by Navajeevan Express on June 17, 2007. It took the whole day of June 18 and we reached Ahmedabad at 7pm. The sun hasnt set yet and it was brighter as evening. We reached IIM, Vastrapur by 8pm via autorickshaw and on the way we drank a cup of tea in a road shop. My brother approached Mr.Jones and he gave him the key to Room no:6 in Dorm 23. Actually Block 23 is located in New campus and for that need to walk through the 132-feet underpass and in the meanwhile my brother got his alloted room in Dorm 18 Room no:2 which is in the old campus. We ate our dinner at the IIMA canteen. On the next day morning we went to my brother’s room at Block 18, cleaned it and made it look neat. We had our afternoon meal at the canteen that is exactly opposite to class room 9. Later in the evening, we went to a shopping market in Ahm and purchased some things like pillow, bed sheet and other necessary goodies. After returning we ate and slept in Dorm 23. On June 20, my brother approached the SBI bank for his educational loan and it took the most of the day and on the next day morning, my brother went to collect his first term books. In the evening at 4pm we got a chance to hear the speech of Dr.Atul Dholakia, the former director of IIMA. He presented the statistics of the IIMA and said that since 2001, IIMA ranks the No:1 B-school among the Top B-schools in Asia. After the speech, we got to meet some of the tamilian gangs in IIMA. On June 21, 6am we started our return journey to chennai and reached chennai on June 22, 4pm. I enjoyed that trip and its afterall a trip for me and nothing else. After that visit, I made up my mind to crack CAT 2010 and get into that IIMA Heaven…
