Interview with Tanay Mathani: Study Days @ IIITM Gwalior : A jaunty Journey …

We have invited interviews of Alumni via Google doc, email etc, to be published on Blog and latter in Alumni Annual magazine.

So far we have received many replies. The first in the series is interview with Tanay Mathani.

Tanay Mathani was one of the most talked and versatile personalities during his days @ IIITM. (for any doubt , do consult any hot chick @ IIITM ;) )

Sidhi Baat (The Interview):

Name: Tanay Maithani
Batch: IPG2002-07(MBA)
Location:Bern, Switzerland
Organization:Swisscom AG (On deputation from Mahindra Satyam)

Q.1. Your Intro ? (the first question for every IIITMite in so called intro :))
Tanay Maithani, the most useless person of IPG 2002 MBA. Only visible in Canteens, Hostel and PMC. A very rare species to be found in Lecture Theaters. Last one to reach for the examination hall and first one to leave it. Special Presence during Aurora on stage with fillers.

Q. 2. Define IIITM in your word?
IIITM is my home. The safest place in the world. Taught me everything, to make something out of nothing and everything out of something. Source of energy, gave me friends, gave me love, brotherly seniors and loving juniors.

Q. 3.The most memorable moment @ IIITM ?
entire 5 years have been memorable, can recall almost everyday spent there.

The best one was when one of our professors told us that NETWORK MANAGEMENT is actually a MANAGEMENT course. All technology students were stunned, they always thought it was a core technical subject. Then our dear professor explained us it was management of network packet queues waiting to get inside your router and as a management student you have to manage those. I'm still trying to figure that out... :D

Q. 4.Technology and Management in your words, how it become more special when it comes for IIITM ?
When in IIITM, i was always confused as to how the visionaries wanted to blend management with technology. Now when i'm in the industry I know management and technology are not separable. Technology and Management Courses in IIITM were so much blended i remained confused all the time what am i Reading. IIITM was special because it taught me to fight with vacuum, in a totally hostile environment.

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 .
Oh, i just replicated what i did in IIITM. Trying to fight with vacuum.

Q. 6. A message to your all juniors, (something you aspired most @ IIITM and want the same in your juniors) …
Don't let your motivation go down. Believe me, we came in IIITM with much higher expectations that what you had, and the everything (buildings, professors, library, labs, mess, all facilities etc) were much less than what you have now. IIITM will bring out the fighter in you.

Don't regret why you are here, always think how can you make things better than what they are.

and lastly, enjoy your life while in IIITM, a horrifying world is waiting for you outside the boundaries.

Q. 7.IIITM on lighter note: eg: IIITM is getting more greener with times, what do you think ???
Definitely IIITM is more greener now (green revolution had just started in our days, courtesy a very environment loving deputy director), i think all the functional roles are better defined now ( i just hope dubey ji/ negi ji are no more acting invigilators during examinations.
