Q.1. Your Intro ? (the first question for every IIITMite in so called intro :))
Hi, I am from Gwalior, completed my MBA in 2004 also an engineer though my Mech. Engg. is rarely used in my current profile.

Total 5 years experience all in solution sales, I love to play games and read books. Fond of traveling and making new friends.

Q. 2. Define IIITM in your word?
IIITM is an institute of choices, I believe and have experienced that you can take your career wherever you want it to be. Be it in the field of IT/Consulting or in the area of research or management.Still some of the promises with which institute was set up are to be delivered and I am sure they will be in a very near future. Above all its a place which has given me alot both in professional and in personal life.

Q. 3.The most memorable moment @ IIITM ?
The Aurora 2003 that we organized and learned a lot about (event) management. The bash we use to have on seniors placement, the snacks at the local tapra, the basement cricket at boys hostel..................
I owe all my best friends & lots of cherished moments to IIITM.

Q. 4.Technology and Management in your words, how it become more special when it comes for IIITM ?
No business or management function is independent of technology today. The best grad school today produce the students strong in either of the discipline but not both of them. IIITM is unique as curriculum is such, a student can design his course creatively and excel at both the discipline. No industry or organization is not in need of such a mix.

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 .
Well, I belong to the minority of alumni today professionaly as I am in Sales function.Life Starts and ends with numbers (target), During my 5 years in sales I have learned a lot from others and made many friends from different industries. Some of the key learnings I have gathered and which will help all of you are:
1. Read alot it helps in striking conversation and keeps you going in corporate world.
2. Be a good and effective communicator it will give you an edge over others
3. Have a balanced lifestyle work/personal life/time to yourself
4. Be good to others
I have always believed to choose the path which I find interesting and take some risks on the way which till now have paid well. Still a long way to go to be a big fish in this huge corporate ocean but I can say that it has been reasonably well for me till now.Biggest achievement till date is being recognized in Top 20 performers in Oracle India in FY 09' (the reward was Hawaii trip for me and mom :-)

Q. 6. A message to your all juniors, (something you aspired most @ IIITM and want the same in your juniors) …

You are the best of the best, always keep your head high and believe in yourself.
All the best and remember you are not alone, All of us alumni will be glad to help you.

Q. 7.IIITM on lighter note: eg: IIITM is getting more greener with times, what do you think ???
Yes IIITM is getting greener for sure may be after some time the subject grading will become more eco friendly e.g. carbon credits instead of credits.
