Thank you sir ..for moments ...

Sidhi Baat (The Interview):

Name: AShreyas Shrivastava
Batch: IPG2001-06 MTech
Location: Gurgaon
Organization: Vichara Technologies

Q.1. Your Intro ? (the first question for every IIITMite in so called intro :))
I am IPG MTech 2006 pass-out currently working as Technical Leader at Vichara Technologies. My work is primarily related to software product development in the area of FIS (Fixed Income Securities) Analytics.

Q. 2. Define IIITM in your word?
Its a place which made the most of what I am today.

Q. 3.The most memorable moment @ IIITM ?
Apart from all the fun moments & numerous nights spent in playing badminton, t.t. or snooker, the one thing that I cherish the most was the lectures by Mr. Davesh Singh. The course taken by him was the only one in which i had nearly full attendance. They were the most technically enlighntening lectures during the entire five years and the learnings and overviews gained during them have helped me in a long way.

Q. 4.Technology and Management in your words, how it become more special when it comes for IIITM ?
The amalgam of management and technical subjects allowed us (IPG MTech) to develop an insight into how business works. In a normal five year course offered at other colleges, this much exposure to management subjects is definitely missing. Apart from the exposure being provided at curricular level,the phenomenon of having a mix of MBAs and MTechs as batch mates and dorm mates allows both to pick up more insight into each other's stream thereby enabling a true confluence of managment and technology.

Q. 5.Your experience and strategy @ your work place: how did you develop your skills from null to pointer, please give us a biographical detail .
Be curious, remain open to learning and keep churning ideas in your head (both the right and wrong kinds ;) )

Q. 6. A message to your all juniors, (something you aspired most @ IIITM and want the same in your juniors) …
Our college is unique in the sense that it allows us (IPG) to follow numerous career paths, given the option to chose mba or mtech and the availability of five years at a stretch. At my time, we were the second batch, so when we were in first or second year we didn't have much idea about what it would be like to be in the final or pre-final year, but now you have all your senior batches studying with you and multiple batches of alumni in the industry. My advice is that you should keep interacting with your seniors and try to form an idea of what all ways you can direct your progression at IIITM and later on. Also, one thing that I advise to everybody is that try to keep yourself well read. It really pays out in ways unbeknownst to you now.

Q. 7. IIITM on lighter note: eg: IIITM is getting more greener with times, what do you think ???
Seeing the latest photos, I must say that there have been a good lot of developments taking place. During my five years, I have always longed for campus internet in hostel and the tennis court. I am told they are in place now, so its nice to see these things coming to fruition. The plethora of alumni initiatives being taken these days is also worth appreciating. Just hope that the rate of such developments keeps climbing up!
