Expiry Date for Relationshhips ….

Relationships are the most valuable part of my life and guess many of us. After basic needs like
Air, Water, Food, Safety it is establshing, maintaining, developing relationships that are most important for many people. What are the sources of relationships. As soon as a baby is born then his or her life starts with and reloves around family (parents0, grand parents and then extends to siblings, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews.
Last week i had lot of personal attack/slander by a classmate in one of my school WhatsApp group. He shared some disgusting lies about me that deserve a “cease & desists” notice and also possible criminal case for character assasination via “fake news” & “false clains”. I may or may not a criminal case against him in Indian courts in case get time for Libel and Slander in case he doesnt apologise. Not mentinong his nane since might be an attempt by him to gain attention & publicity by him. Exploring on this topic

Notes on relationships
Be it a filmstar or sportstar or entrepreneur Most successful or unsuccessful people seem to give credit to their parents/family and then maybe friends, mentors, colleagues, classmates and alumni. I take this very seriously and will walk, run or fly thousands of miles just to be with my close ones. Today I want to write a note on ending relationships too with few friends or classmates. We know each other pretty well especially if we studied and played together in hostels. In my class my boarding school, Sainik School Tilaiaya, where i studied from class 6th to 10th and then left after 10th to do my +2 in Modern School Vasant Vihar, JNU (few months only for a mission) and then back to hometown Patna for BA(Hons) in Economics from AN College, Patna. It was an intereting 5 years of BA in Patna due to delayed sessions in most colleges of Bihar. I used this time to learn Computers at Aptech Computer, teach there as faculty and also worked as a Lab-in-Charge. Started my first semi-entrepreneurship journey when joined Zed Point (started by Zee TV, Aptech & Apple) and later started my own start-up A++ CompulLab in a garage at Patliputra Colony. Soon also joined AMS for prepring for CAT and joined IIFT, New Delhi first and then IIM Ahmedabad for MBA in batch of 1999-2001. While doing my MBA, also met an amazing friend from IIT Madras), who introduced me to Co-founder of Inaltus in London and we ware invited by him to do a 3 month industry project in London and Mumbai. My classmate insited that I go to London and he will work from Mumbai since he has already been to London. This was my first international trip. This is what Friends do ? They put your interest before their own interest

Duing my days at Delhi, in SST, JNU & IIFT i met many friends, alumni and one of that experience is what I am going to share today. There was a hostelmate of mine in Gautam House at Sainik School Tilaiya who would always follow me since class 6th. Few of my classmates from SST including him too joined JNU in coming years. I had taken admission in BA(Hons) Spanish (School of Languages ) is the only department where we had Bachelors, else most departments were mainly Masters, Mhil and and Ph.D. We had Masters and above in School of Social Sciences, School of International Studies as listed below. My purpose of joining was mainly socio-political. I had taken a resolve to start a RSS shakha in JNU after then HRD Minister Arjun Singh has put a ban on RSS on 6th Dec 1992 in the historic event when volunteers (kar-sevaks), had pulled down that disputed structure in Ayodhya. I used to attend meetings of ABVP (student wing of BJP/RSS) while in School. After joining JNU i started a Shakha next to the park close to Narmada Hostel (where i used to stay). It was also close to Teflas canteen and a very popular place to hangout by students. I had taken the very challenging task of conducting Shakha in Khaki Shorts to the few students/children who would come. We also had a successful Guru Dakshina. Often many friends and alumni ask me about RSS or contribution of RSS to India and the world.
Below are 20 points on Quora about RSS
What is RSS ?? Must Read this 20 Points

1. Field Marshal Cariappa in his speech to RSS volunteers said “RSS is my heart’s work. My dear young men, don’t be disturbed by uncharitable comments of interested persons. Look ahead! Go ahead! The country is standing in need of your services”

2. Nov 1949, Dr. Zakir Hussain : “Allegations against RSS of violence & hatred against the Muslims are wholly false.”

3. Nov 1949, Dr. Zakir Hussain: “Muslims should learn the lesson of mutual love, cooperation and organisation from RSS”.

4. Jayaprakash Narayan in 1977: “RSS is a revolutionary organization. No other organization in the country comes anywhere near it.”

5. Noted Gandhian leader and the leader of Sarvoday movement, Jayaprakash Narayan, who earlier was a vocal opponent of RSS had the following to say about it in 1977 “RSS is a revolutionary organization. No other organization in the country comes anywhere near it. It alone has the capacity to transform society, end casteism and wipe the tears from the eyes of the poor.” He further added “I have great expectations from this revolutionary organization which has taken up the challenge of creating a new India”.

6. Sikh intellectual and author of ‘A History of the Sikhs’, Khushwant Singh, credits members of the RSS with helping and protecting Sikhs who were being targeted by members of theCongress political party during the 1984 Anti-Sikh Riots. Singh who otherwise has been critical of the RSS and believes that it is a ” communal organization and dangerous to the country’s secular fabric”

7. The RSS also has been banned in India thrice, during periods in which the government of the time claimed that they were a threat to the state: in 1948 after Mahatma Gandhi’s assassination, during the Emergency (1975–77), and after the 1992 Babri Masjid demolition. The bans were subsequently lifted, in 1949 after the RSS was absolved of charges in the Gandhi murder case, in 1977 as a result of the Emergency being revoked, and in 1993 when no evidence of any unlawful activities was found against it by the tribunal constituted under the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act.

8. After the Independence of India, many organizations including the RSS aspired to liberate Dadra and Nagar Haveli from Portuguese occupation. In April 1954, the RSS formed a coalition with the National Movement Liberation Organization (NMLO), the and Azad Gomantak Dal (AGD) for the liberation of Dadra and Nagar Haveli. On the night of 21 July, United front of Goans, a group, working independently of the coalition, captured the Portuguese police station at Dadra and declared Dadra as free. Subsequently on 28 July, volunteer teams of the RSS and AGD captured the territories of Naroli and Phiparia and ultimately the capital of Silvassa. The Portuguese forces which escaped and moved towards Nagar Haveli, were assaulted at Khandvel and were forced to retreat till they surrendered to the Indian border police at Udava on 11 August 1954. A native administration was setup with Appasaheb Karmalkar of NMLO as the Administrator of Dadra and Nagar Haveli on 11 August 1954.

9. In 1955, RSS leaders demanded the end of Portuguese rule in Goa and its integration into India. When Prime Minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru refused to obtain it by armed intervention, RSS leader Jagannath Rao Joshi led the satyagraha agitation straight into Goa itself.

10. The RSS earned recognition based on its volunteer work during the Sino-Indian War in 1962. RSS was invited by Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru to take part in the Indian Republic day parade of 1963. It along with several other civilian organizations took part in the parade. This event helped the RSS increase its popularity and its patriotic image.

11. Later in 1965 and 1971 Indo-Pak wars too, the RSS volunteers offered their services to maintain law and order of the country and were apparently the first to donate blood.

12. In 1975, the Indian Government under the Prime Minister Mrs. Indira Gandhi, proclaimed emergency rule in India, thereby suspending the fundamental rights and curtailing the rights of the press. The volunteers of the RSS formed underground movements for the restoration of democracy. Literature that was censored in the media was clandestinely published and distributed on a large scale and funds were collected for the movement. It said that the movement was “dominated by tens of thousands of RSS cadres, though more and more young recruits are coming”. Talking about its objectives it said “its platform at the moment has only one plank: to bring democracy back to India”.

13. It has been noted that the RSS volunteers participated in the Bhoodan movement organized by Gandhian leader Vinobha Bhave. RSS leader M. S. Golwalkar believed that the movement should inculcate a right and positive faith in the masses that can make them rise above the base appeal of Communism.

14. The mission of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh has been described as the revitalization of Indian value system based on universalism and peace and prosperity to all. Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam, the worldview that the whole world is one family, propounded by the ancient thinkers of India, is considered as the ultimate mission of the organization.

15. The RSS has advocated the training of Dalits and other backward classes as temple high priests (a position traditionally reserved for Caste Brahmins and denied to lower castes). They argue that the social divisiveness of the Caste system is responsible for the lack of adherence to Hindu values and traditions and reaching out to the lower castes in this manner will be a remedy to the problem. The RSS has also condemned ‘upper’ caste Hindus for preventing Dalits from worshipping at temples, saying that “even God will desert the temple in which Dalits cannot enter”.

16. During M. K. Gandhi’s visit to RSS Camp accompanied by Mahadev Desai and Mirabehn at Wardha in 1934, he was surprised by the discipline and the absence of untouchability in RSS and commented “When i visited the RSS Camp. I was very much surprised by your discipline and absence of untouchablity “. He personally inquired to Swayamsevaks and found that they were living and eating together in the camp without bothering to know their castes.

17. Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar while visiting the RSS camp at Pune in 1939 observed that Swayamsevaks were moving in absolute equality and brotherhood without even caring to know the cast of others. In his address to the Swayamsevaks, he said that ” This is the first time that I am visiting the camp of Sangh volunters. I am happy to find absolute equality between Savarniyas (Upper cast) and Harijans (Lower cast) without any one being aware of such difference existing.” When he asked Dr Hedgewar whether there were any untouchables in the camp, he replied that there are neither “touchables” nor “untouchables” but only Hindus.

18. RSS runs 27,041 schools (Ekal Vidyalaya) in remote tribal areas : 7,53,123 socially deprived tribal students are enrolled.

19. RSS has 45,00,000 volunteers assembling in 40-50,000 shakhas each day. The largest volunteer organization in the world!

20. RSS has participated in many relief activities during natural calamities.

Classmates and Politics

I have been fortunate to have studied in few very prestigious institutions in school and college. One of them is my boarding school , a millitary school, Sainik School Tilaiaya and another is my MBA college, IIM Ahmedabad. Both Sainik Schools and IIMs were set-up, funded by Government of India. Sainik Schools are governed by Ministry of Defence and Ministry of Human Resources & Development

Very proud of both these great and prestigious institutions which are also two extremes in terms of culture both social and political. My high school was funded by Ministry of Defence to prepare a pipeline of future officers of Indian Armed Forces. My MBA college, IIM Ahmedabad is rated as one of world’s toughest business schools by Bloomberg to get into. Time magazine in a cover story rated IIM,9171,2084441-2,00.html It also accounts for one of the largest number of Entrepreneurs, CEOs, Business Leaders and Social Leaders. The Institute’s founding director was Ravi J. Matthai. Other notable founding figures were the Indian physicist Vikram Sarabhai and Indian businessman Kasturbhai Lalbhai.
I have also been associated as co-founder of IIM Society , a global platform to connect all alumni of all 20 IIMs.

Thanks to Internet / Social Media platforms like Facebook, Linkedin, Telegram, WhatsApp, Twitter it is very easy to be in touch. I being a connector or community organizer.

Since childhood, I am naturally & compulsively inclined or obssesed to jump in to help and comment on any topic where I see I can add value. Reason I am writing this blog is a very disturbing experience i had in one of my batch groups. One of my classmates sought help if someone can refer his sister in a company. I knew someone who possibly could help. Howver, one of my classmates was upset by the fact that i responded so quickly and I often do. He is a very senior leader in a prestigious financial venture capital firm and he immediatley quit our batch group. This was shocking, sudden and very rude and distrubing. I started introspecting and speculating about it since he didn’t give any reason on why it was so disturbing to him. This put me thinking about the trend I have observed in past too. My hypothesis is that often few of your closest family members or friends, classmates, alumni are the most jealous or insecure. In this case, maybe this person didn’t like the fact that hIs classmate who a financially or by most traditional measures of success not as successul or rich like him has not only access to these senior leaders or companies in such a wide variety of companies from Fortune 500 to start-ups. but is so quick to offer to help. This was very disturbing, so thought will pen down in my blog rather than keep the anger or resentment within me. I have found it useful to pen down my thoughts in writing or speech rather than keeping within.

These words of a very popular song is what explains the feeling best, “
Why re classmates , why so fake or insecure re ?

Initially was planning to focus mainly on my disturbing experience with my IIMA 2001 batch classmates but then today thought will expand the scope to a few even worse experience from SST 1993 batch classmate too. One of them is someone I have known for 25+ years, this person has built his career since school based on copying or following me and is now a successful entrepreneur, we have studied together, known each other’s families, we have lived in each other’s home and his village after +2 to study from a few professors known to his father. After 10th when i moved to Delhi then he followed me and later also joined JNU. I joined JNU after +2. So he has followed me in so many ways. We have even organized events together, collaborated together. But with time things change, he has cheated me few times and being an opportunist of the highest order. Today he said few disturbing things in one of our groups, “संस्कृति संस्कार एंव घर्म”, by few of my alumni and he is one of the admins.

About IIMs

Indian Institutes of Management

The Indian Institutes of Management (IIMs) are institutes of management education and research in India. They primarily offer postgraduatedoctoral and executive education programmes.

IIMs are declared as institutions of national importance after the passage of Indian Institutes of Management Act, 2017. With this act in place, IIMs leveraged up significantly to make their autonomous decisions in their day-to-day operations. The act changed the governing body from IIM council to IIM coordination forum. IIMs were granted much leeway to decide their courses, fees and other related matters.[3]

The two-year Post Graduate Programme in Management (PGP), offering the Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM), is the flagship programme across all IIMs.[4][5][6] These post-graduate diploma programmes are considered the equivalent of regular MBA programmes. However, since the passage of IIM Act, most IIMs have started offering Master in Business Administration (MBA). Some IIMs also offer a one-year post-graduate diploma programme for graduates with more work experience.[7][8] Some IIMs offer the Fellow Programme in Management (FPM), a doctoral programme. The fellowship is considered to be equivalent to a PhD globally.[9] Most IIMs also offer short-term executive education/EMBA courses and part-time programmes. Some IIMs also offer unique programs, like IIM Rohtak and IIM Indore‘s Five Year Integrated Programme in Management[10] and IIM Lucknow‘s Working Managers’ Programme of three years.[11]

After India became independent in 1947, the Planning Commission was entrusted to oversee and direct the development of the nation. India grew rapidly in the 1950s, and in the late 1950s the Commission started facing difficulties in finding suitable managers for the large number of public sector enterprises that were being established in India as a part of its industrial policy. To solve this problem, the Planning Commission in 1959 invited Professor George Robbins of UCLA to help in setting up an All India Institute of Management Studies. Based on his recommendations, the Indian government decided to set up two elite management institutes, named Indian Institutes of Management. Calcutta and Ahmedabad were chosen as the locations for the two new institutes.[27]

The institute at Calcutta was established first, on 13 November 1961,[28] and was named Indian Institute of Management Calcutta or IIM Calcutta. It was set up in collaboration with the MIT Sloan School of Management, the government of West Bengal, the Ford Foundation, and Indian industry.[29] The institute at Ahmedabad was established in the following month and was named the Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad. Like MIT Sloan in the case of IIM Calcutta, Harvard Business School played an important role in the initial stages of IIM Ahmedabad.[30]

In 1972, a committee headed by Ravi J. Matthai took note of the success of the two established IIMs and recommended the setting up of two more IIMs. Based on the committee’s recommendation, a new IIM, originally intended to cater exclusively to the needs of public sector enterprises, was established in Bangalore (IIM Bangalore) the next year.[31][27] In 1981, the first IIM Review Committee was convened to examine the progress of the three existing IIMs and to make recommendations. The committee noted that the three IIMs were producing around 400 PGP graduates every year and that they had reached their optimum capacity. It proposed the opening of two more IIMs to meet the rising demand for management professionals. It also recommended expanding the Fellowship programmes, similar to PhD programmes, to meet the growing demand for faculty in management schools in India. The fourth IIM, IIM Lucknow, was established in 1984 based on the committee’s recommendation.

Two more IIMs, the fifth and sixth, were established at Kozhikode and Indore in 1996.[32][33] IIM Shillong was the seventh IIM to be established, following a 2005 decision by the Government of India;[34] its foundation stone was laid on 1 December 2007;[35] and its first academic session was 2008–09.[9][36] Since 2007, fourteen new IIMs have been set up, bringing the total number of IIMs to 20, IIM-Jammu being the latest one, starting in 2016.[citation needed]

The Union Cabinet, on 24 January 2017, approved the bill that became the Indian Institutes of Management Act, 2017, which declares IIMs as Institutes of National Importance and enables them to grant degrees and to further make other important changes to the institute.[37] The IIM bill was passed by the Lok Sabha on 28 July 2017[38] and by the Rajya Sabha on 19 December 2017.[39] After receiving presidential assent, the IIM bill became an Act on 31 December 2017.[40][41]


The IIMs mainly offer postgraduate, doctoral, and executive education programmes. Some programmes offered by all IIMs are similar; however, some IIMs offer unique programmes for specialised purposes.

Postgraduate education[edit]

All IIMs offer a two-year full-time Post Graduate Programme in Management (PGP), equivalent to a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree.[42][43][44] The programme is considered the flagship programme of IIMs, and awards the Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM) to successful candidates. Since 2018, most IIMs have started granting MBA degrees for this flagship program.[45]

This programme is usually structured into six trimesters spread across two years, starting in June and running until April of the second year. The first year coursework generally consists of core courses in various management disciplines, while in the second year students are allowed to select courses from an exhaustive list of electives. The PGP is a general, fully integrated management programme with no specialisation, and typically includes courses in accounting, behavioural science, finance, economics, human-resource management (HRM), management sciences and information technology, marketing, business operations, business mathematics, public policy, statistics and decision analysis, strategy, and general management.

Since 2006, some IIMs have started offering one-year, full-time post graduate diploma programmes for professionals having approximately 5 years or more of work experience. This program was necessitated because the normal 2-year program is primarily aimed at new graduates or graduates with less than 4–5 years of work experience. These 1 years programmes are general, fully integrated management programmes with no specialization, and typically include the same courses as offered in a typical 2-year MBA program. These intensive programmes typically require 75 credits or around 750 hours of classroom teaching along with projects and other coursework as in a normal, global 2-year MBA program.[46]

Designed as a regular MBA programme, which focuses on using the prior work experience of the students, the one-year MBA is named differently by different IIMs. It is called the Post Graduate Program for Executives at IIM Calcutta and IIM Shillong (PGPEX for short), and at IIM Ahmedabad and IIM Udaipur (PGPX for short). It is called the Executive Post Graduate Programme (EPGP) at IIM Bangalore and IIM Indore, and the International Programme in Management for Executives (IPMX) at IIM Lucknow. The exact structure, admission criteria, and other details of these programmes vary. However, all these programmes admit only candidates with approximately 5 or more years of professional experience and usually use a combination of GMAT score, essays, and personal interviews as entry criteria, similar to other globally reputed MBA programmes. The median GMAT score of the batches at IIM Bangalore is usually around 710.[47]

Other than these general variants, many IIMs offer specialty programmes built which focus on different areas, e.g. Post Graduate Programme in Sustainable Management (PGP-SM) at IIM Lucknow,[48] Post Graduate Diploma in Human Resource Management (PGDHRM) at IIM Ranchi[49] and many more.

Five-year Integrated Programme[edit]

Two IIMs, IIM Indore and IIM Rohtak also offer integrated programs which spans for five years.[50][51] Students join this program just after finishing their school (class XII). The program is called IPM (Integrated Programme in Management) at both the institutes. The course structures are similar though not same at both the institutes. For the first three years, they are taught a combination of “statistics, economics and humanities”, making them unique in their way. The last two years, they undergo the program with PGP students at their respective institutes. IIM Indore first started this program in 2011 and thereby became the first IIM to have a bachelors program. Four batches of IIM Indore’s IPM have been graduated and inducted in the industry. IIM Rohtak has launched this program in 2019 and the first batch is expected to graduate in 2024. IIM Indore offers Bachelor of Arts (Foundations of Management) and MBA (dual-degree) to the graduates of this program. IIM Rohtak has decided to offer Masters of Management Studies (MMS) to five-year graduates and Bachelors of Management Studies (BMS) to students who opt-out after three years.[50][51]

Doctoral education

IIMs offer a Fellow Programme in Management (FPM) as a full-time doctoral-level programme in management. This programme is aimed at preparing students for careers in teaching or research in different disciplines of management, as well as for careers outside academics that demand a high degree of investigative and analytical ability. A student who completes this programme at any IIM, where (s)he is registered as a doctoral scholar, is awarded the title of Fellow of that institute (e.g. Fellow of the Indian Institute of Management Calcutta). This Fellow Programme is equivalent to the Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree. Students receiving such a fellowship every year, across all IIMs, work in close association with one another in specific research areas of their choice.

Executive education

Many IIMs offer executive education-certificate programmes targeted at working professionals. These are often short-term or part-time programmes and are known by various names such as Management Development Programme (MDP), Advanced Masters Program in Management of Global Enterprises (AMPM), and Executive General Management Programme (EGMP). The certificate programmes at IIMs are not considered as equivalent to an MBA or EMBA. Only the diploma-level programmes are considered as equivalent, depending on whether it is full-time or part-time. Many IIMs—such as IIMC, IIMB, IIMK, IIM Kashipur, and IIM Rohtak—have partnered with third-party companies to enable these courses to be provided under a distributed model.

Other programmes

Some IIMs offer specialised programmes targeted at various management segments. IIM Ahmedabad offers a six-month, full-time programme called the Armed Forces Programme (AFP) aimed at military personnel. IIM Ahmedabad and IIM Bangalore offer full-time programmes in public management and are called the Post Graduate Programme in Public Management and Policy (PGP-PMP) and Post Graduate Programme in Public Policy Management (PGPPM), respectively. IIM Bangalore offers a two-year, part-time programme called the Post-Graduate Programme in Software Enterprise Management (PGPSEM),[52] an executive general-management education programme designed for the specific needs of professionals working in the software and information-technology industry. IIM Indore offers a 5-year Integrated Programme in Management (IPM) that leads to a combined undergraduate-cum-graduate diploma.[53] IIM Ranchi is the first and only IIM to offer a full-time Post Graduate Diploma in Human Resource Management (PGDHRM) programme.[49] IIM Bangalore offers a two-year Mahatma Gandhi National Fellowship to “promote skill development in district economies”.[54]

Admission process

Different programmes of IIMs follow different admission processes. Admission for residents of India to the flagship two-year PGP programmes at all IIMs is based on the Common Admission Test (CAT). CAT scores are often used as the primary short-listing criteria for admissions. International/overseas applicants have the option to apply using GMAT scores in lieu of CAT scores.[55] GMAT scores are a prerequisite short-listing criteria used for admission to the one-year full-time programme for experienced executives.[56][57] Test requirements for doctoral programmes vary. Some IIMs require candidates to make a presentation of a broad research idea or take a Research Aptitude Test (RAT) followed by round of interviews while all are compelled to accept scores on standardised tests such as the CATGATEGMAT, and GRE. The overall profiles of candidates, including past academic and professional accomplishments, are considered for all programmes, along with valid standard test scores. Some programmes require essays and academic or professional recommendations. The final round of admission evaluations involve an interview, before which some IIMs conduct other evaluation processes like written assessment tests and group discussions.

Entrance exam

The Common Admission Test (CAT) is a management aptitude test conducted by the IIMs primarily as an evaluation tool for admission to their two-year PGP programmes. It is widely considered as one of the most competitive exams in the world,[58] with a success rate of around one in two hundred.[59] Even with the recent addition of new colleges, in 2013 the acceptance rate at IIMs was 1.714%, one of the lowest in the world.[60]

Originally conducted as a paper-and-pencil test given on a particular date all over India, in 2009 CAT began being given as a computer-based assessment operated by Prometric.[61] In 2014, TCS received a 5-year contract to conduct the test. The online test is now given over a period of a few weeks.

In August 2011, the six newer IIMs (Raipur, Rohtak, Ranchi, Udaipur, Trichy and Kashipur) announced that in the coming year they will replace the group-discussion round with a common written analysis test to evaluate communication and comprehension skill. The seven older IIMs did not announce plans to change the admission process.[62]

The admissions for the two-year full-time programme is done by shortlisting based on GMAT scores in conjunction with candidate profile suitability. This is followed by evaluation of essays and a panel-interview round. The quality of prior work experience and future leadership potential is a critical factor in the selections.[63][64][65]

Reservation policy

IIMs also follow a quota system, as per the provisions of the Indian constitution. As per the provisions, 15% of the seats are reserved for students of Scheduled Castes, and 7.5% for Scheduled Tribes. Since 2008, the Other Backward Classes have also been given 27% reservation, after the Supreme Court of India upheld the validity of relevant government regulation. The provisions are being implemented in a phased manner due to resource constraints. All aspirants have to take the Common Admission Test which consists of an objective-type exam, a group-discussion round, and personal interviews, with the cut-off for reserved-category candidates being possibly lower than for general-category candidates. Once admitted to a programme, a reserved category student has to meet all the criteria for completing the programme as a general-category student. Regular counselling sessions, extra classes, and tutorials, by senior students, for needy students are a regular feature of the IIMs.[66][67] IIMs provide financial support to needy and deserving students in the form of scholarships.[68]

Course Fees

In 2004, IIMs charged a fee of approximately ₹1.50 lakh (US$2,100) per year (₹3 lakh (US$4,200) for two years) for their flagship programmes.[69][70][71][72] By 2016, the fee was almost ₹19 lakh (US$27,000).[73][74][75][76] Inflation in India[77][78] has been cited as one of the reasons for the fee hikes at IIMs.[79][80]

Post-graduate program fees

The IIM post graduation program fees structure varies from ₹9 lakh (US$13,000)—at IIM Amritsar, a more recent institute—to ₹23 lakh (US$32,000)—at IIM Ahmedabad. The second highest fees, totaling ₹21 lakh (US$29,000), are for IIM Kolkata and IIM Bangalore. Most of the IIM’s fees are in the ₹10 lakh (US$14,000) range: IIMs Vizag, Trichy, Ranchi, Sambalpur, Sirmaur, Jammu, Kashipur, and Nagpur. IIM Lucknow fees total around ₹14 lakh (US$20,000), IIM Indore ₹16 lakh (US$22,000), IIM Kozhikode ₹17.5 lakh (US$25,000).[81]

Executive program fees

IIM run several executive programs for working executives and professionals. The full-time executive program at IIM Udaipur launched recently had fees of ₹15.8 lakh (US$22,000) while the data analytics program was ₹21 lakh (US$29,000).[82] IIM Lucknow’s new 6-month data analytics program costs ₹2.49 lakh (US$3,500) while its analytics program for finance professionals costs ₹1.43 lakh (US$2,000).[83][84][85]

About Sainik Schools

The Sainik Schools are a system of schools in India established and managed by the Sainik Schools Society under Ministry of Defence. They were conceived in 1961 by V. K. Krishna Menon, the then Defence Minister of India, to rectify the regional and class imbalance amongst the Officer cadre of the Indian Military, and to prepare students for entry into the National Defence Academy (NDA), KhadakwaslaPune and Indian Naval Academy. Today there are 33 such schools running and proposed for future covering all the states of the country.[1][2]

The schools come under the purview of respective state governments and Ministry of Defence, and in his Union Budget of 2008, Finance ministerP Chidambaram, allocated ₹2 crore to each of the 25 Sainik schools, to counter rising attrition in the defence forces, especially at the officer level.[3] The first Sainik School was opened by Dr Sampoorna Nand in UP in 1960 under UP state government and there after other Sainik schools we’re opened. UP Sainik School Lucknow located near Amausi Airport remains the only Sainik School under State Govt.



The inspiration for Sainik Schools came from the Rashtriya Indian Military College (RIMC) which have given India many service chiefs and the public school system of England. Sainik schools can be regarded as the ordinary citizen’s public school where deserving students can get high quality education irrespective of their income or class background. Seats are reserved for children of serving Defence personnel and concessions are given to children of Government officials. Although Uttar Pradesh Sainik School Lucknow, established in 1960 was the first one of such kind, it is not under the Sainik School Society, but rather under Uttar Pradesh Sainik Schools Society, which is registered under the Indian Societies Registration Act (1860)[2]

The objective of the Sainik Schools is to prepare the students to lead as officers in the Defence Services of the country. The schools select bright and promising students through a national entrance examination and focus on moulding their overall personality with emphasis on extracurricular activities.

Sainik schools resources allow cadets to develop their skills in sports, academics and other extracurricular activities. Sainik Schools include running tracks, cross-country tracks, indoor games, parade grounds, boxing rings, firing ranges, canoeing clubs, horse riding clubs, mountaineering clubs, trekking and hiking club, obstacles courses, footballhockey and cricket fields, as well as volleyball and basketball courts. Cadets also become a part of NCC. A cadet who complete their 12th standard usually possess a NCC B certificate.

Cadets are assigned to houses. They are classified as sub-juniors, juniors and seniors respectively depending upon their class of study. Cadets compete in sports, physical training, academics, cross country, drill and various other competitions to win their house trophy.

Sainik Schools Society[edit]

The Sainik Schools Society is an organization under the Ministry of Defence. The Chief Executive Body of the Sainik Schools Society is a Board of Governors functioning under the Chairmanship of the Defence Minister. For exercising closer control and supervision over the affairs of Sainik Schools there is an Executive Committee under the Chairmanship of Defence Secretary. The day-to-day work of the Society is managed by Dir (Trg) & Hony Secy who is assisted by Inspecting Officers, Under Secretary, Sainik Schools Society (Sainik School Cell). The staff for the cell is provided by the MoD. The local administration of the school is looked after by a Local Board of Administration whose Chairman is the GoC-in-C of the concerned Command where the Sainik School is located.

Paatal Lok , Swarg Lok and Manav Lok

Over Last few weeks in the post Covid19 era, binge watched two serials based on reommendation from my classmates in the WhatsApp group. One was Panchayat and another was Paatal Lok. Both couldn’t be more different. One reflected everything innocent, honest and good that humanity or Indian villages have especially in hinterland places like BIhar, Jharkhand and another reflected all the vile and toxic few of our metro cities like Delhi NCR have. I love Delhi NCR and did my +2 at Modern School Vasant Vihar and visit there often especially South Delhi. Spent 2 years at Salet, Munirka , RK Puram, Chittranjan Park, Jia Sarai, Katwaria Sarai, Vasant Vihar and various places. Also spent few months at JNU, IIFT Delhi in the amaing Institutional Area. I visit the Tanku’s Dhaba everytime I am in Delhi. 3 years back we also relaunched BEN at IIFT Audiorium which was planned at IIT Delhi hostels.

For Frontline Heroes

FFH Hindi          FFH English

Here are some of the info on FFH app :

In the fight against Corona, while the majority of people remain safe in their homes under lockdown, across the world thousands are active in the service of their nation and humanity. Despite great personal risk to their own health and safety, these dedicated people have come forward and stand as the frontline of defence. They fight on two fronts, against the external onslaught of the pandemic, yet they also face anxiety and loneliness if and when alienated from their community.

To help these frontline heroes (the doctors, nurses, administrators), Bihar School of Yoga has designed simple yoga practices of 15 minutes. These yoga practices are available in a Free app called FFH app (FFH stands for “For Frontline Heroes”). The guided yoga practices of relaxation, breathing, and postures introduced in this app are specially designed to alleviate physical, psychological, and emotional tension, and to help manage stress and anxiety caused by the pandemic on the work and home fronts.

The FFH free app is available in both the iOS and Android platform and can be downloaded by searching “For Frontline Heroes” or Bihar School of Yoga. Friends, Bihar School of Yoga is a world-renowned non-profit, ancient Yoga School situated in India, also has the honor to be the first Yoga University of the world.

This app is inspired by Parmahamsa Niranjanananda Saraswati, a Padma Bhusan awardee by Govt of India

Love and Respect to Late MP Gupta sir

Today learnt that one of our beoved teachers in Sainik School Tilaiay, MP Gupta departed from this wold. He has three sons, one of whom is an IPS, Wishing the family all our love and support. We will miss you sir. Sharing few pictures shared by your students,

On a side note wanted to share history of the word RIP since most of my schoolmaes grived by a shortcut RIP without even knowing the meaning of the full form and context.

RIP Is a pretty convenient three-letter word I see used on WhatsApp. Most people don’t know what it really stands for. RIP literal meaning is Rest in Peace.

My concern with this word is that it goes against the Hindu idea of we being soul which is immortal and death being just like a change of body, But below is the western/chrstian via of RP

The phrase “Rest in peace“, RIP, from Latin Requiescat in pace (Classical Latin[rekʷiˈeːskat in ˈpaːke]Ecclesiastical Latin[rekwiˈeskat in ˈpatʃe]) is sometimes used in traditional Christian services and prayers, such as in the Catholic[1]Lutheran,[2] Anglican and Methodist,denominations, to wish the soul of a decedent eternal rest and peace.

It became ubiquitous on headstones in the 18th century and is widely used today when mentioning someone’s death. The phrase dormit in pace (English: “he sleeps in peace”) was found in the catacombs of the early Christians and indicated that “they died in the peace of the Church, that is, united in Christ.”[4][5][6] The abbreviation R.I.P., meaning Requiescat in pace, “Rest in peace”, continues to be engraved on the gravestones of Christians,[7] especially in the CatholicLutheran, and Anglican denominations.[8]

In the Tridentine Requiem Mass of the Catholic Church the phrase appears several times.[9]

To satisfy a vogue for rhyming couplets on tombstones, the phrase has been parsed ungrammatically as:[10]

cat in pace

This verse has been found inscribed in Hebrew on gravestones dating from the 1st century BC, in the graveyard of Bet Shearim. It speaks of the righteous person who died because he could not stand the evil surrounding him. A recapture of these words, read as “come and rest in peace”, has been transferred to the ancient Talmudic prayers, in a mixture of Hebrew and Aramaic of the 3rd century AD. It is used to this day in traditional Jewish ceremonies.[11]

Other variations include “Requiescat in pace et in amore” for “May she rest in peace and love”, and “In pace requiescat et in amore”. The word order is variable because Latin syntactical relationships are indicated by the inflexional endings, not by word order. If “Rest in peace” is used in an imperative mood, it would be “Requiesce in pace” (acronym R.I.P.) in the second person singular, or “Requiescite in pace” in the second person plural.[12] In the common phrase “Requiescat in pace” the “-at” ending is appropriate because the verb is a third-person singular present active subjunctive used in a hortative sense: “May he/she rest in peace”



WhatsApp, Telegram Groups & Need for Introduction by members

Screenshot 2020-05-13 at 20.03.37Telegram
WhatsApp is one of the most popular instant messaging apps created by Brian Acton, & Jan Koum

In February 2014, Facebook purchased the messaging service WhatsApp for $19 billion. Instant messaging has been a very category of Apps and there are man other such clients. I also love creating, curating communities.

Few of these communities are alumni groups like school groups ( Sainik Schools and my Sainik School Tilaiya), college group (IIM Society for all IIMs and IIM Ahmedabad), and various entrepreneurship groups like BEN, JEN, TEN, WEN, YEN. I enjoy doing this and see a lot of value in creating, curating these communities Why do we do that? Communities Collaborate to Co-create and share Content and also often create social and business ventures. Thanks to the internet and various platforms like  Facebook, Linkedin, Google Groups, Telegram, WhatsApp many like-minded people, or those with shared interests discover each other. I am part of many such groups. I join most invites that get shared by people and stay in them if I see myself adding any value or getting value to the group. Today I wanted to write some conduct that I find spammy

  1. WhatsApp/Telegram groups where only the admin can post and the rest of the members are just expected to be the audience, spectators. Question: why create a group when all you wanted to have was a platform to broadcast/unicast your messages. Why not use the broadcast feature to broadcast your message
  2. No Introductions: People join the group but won’t a) introduce themselves even on request by the admin/moderator of the group. Question: why join a group if you are shy of introductions. Aren’t nameless, faceless, masked people a security risk because they have something to be ashamed of or to hide?
  3. Forwards: Many groups are full of useless forwards of flowers, greetings, pictures, videos, Sai Baba, etc. They don’t add any value to our lives but just end up clogging space on our phones and waste our precious resource  that is “attention”

    One such experience I would like to share is from a group of wannabe newbies. They would share the invite to a group they have for Young Students. This guy claim to fame or greatness is that he cracked a few IIM interviews, got internships at a few major brands like Uber, Aditya Birla, etc. He shared about one of his groups in a common group, Group Discussions @ 10am by Vishal Kumar of Learning While Travelling.  I have been participating in those discussions for more than a month and we have discussed many Meeting Minutes GD@10pm, companies ranging from Jio to OYO/Treebo

    What peeved me about that young guy and his venture is that he shared a  WhatsApp group invite in this open group by Vishal but members are not allowed to comment or participate in the discussions. Only few of the admins who manage the group are allowed to post. I have a personal policy and best practice in all the WhatsApp/Telegram groups that I manage or participate is
    1) Self-Introduction by all members with their Website &/or Linkedin Profile so that other members can know them better. This is not needed on Linkedin, Facebook groups since each member already have his or her professional and or social profiles.  Otherwise, it is a security risk. My opinion and observation is that only terrorists or criminals want to operate anonymously or with a mask,
    2) In case members don’t introduce themselves I message personally to each of them as don’t want to keep anonymous numbers on my phone,  I also prefer to address people by their names

I am part of many social ventures, entrepreneurship, and alumni groups. Few of them have a Website and most of them have LinkedIn, Facebook, Telegram, WhatsApp groups. One of the recurring “housekeeping” or moderation chores that takes lot of time and energy is “Please introduce yourself with your URL (Website if any or Linkedin profile).  Or any social profiles, even a Twitter or Facebook or Instagram or Github or YouTube channel will do but members without an introduction or online profile are a security and privacy risk for the group. Nameless, Faceless (masked) people most often have something to hide and hence don’t feel comfortable with them especially when a WhatsApp or Telegram group. This is the reason, I suggest/request everyone to create a Linkedin Profile for professionals. Websites cost money and/or technical expertise hence many students or new or wannabe entrepreneurs might not need one and they can do with just an Instagram or Facebook or LinkedIn profile but not having any URL is not ok. It doesn’t cost money to create one on LinkedIn or Facebook or Twitter or GitHub or even a page on LinkedIn or Facebook.

I also request members to share a URL with every message they share on groups since most members might not remember you especially in a large group of alumni or entrepreneurs or community.

Hence writing this blog to highlight the reason why we need to introduce ourselves and ideally with a URL
