The First Week that Wasn't @ NMiMS Hey folks, we hear you are at CAMPUS. Yeah, we know there isn’t really a campus; it’s more of a “floor-pus”. So you guys now officially NMites...Narcissist, hope the Induction week was fun!!! Well,this is our take on things that didn’t happen during your Induction Week @ NMiMS . Note the small ‘i’, check the logo, that’s how college name is written. We don’t have any idea why it is so, but there are many theories around, and you are welcome to thread one for yourself...and yes, do share with us. Anywho…this piece of writing is meant for the light-hearted, so let’s get started! Day 1 à the Dream Inauguration: The first day of a new beginning, red carpet welcome, cheerful faces, prettiest gals, smart guys all packed in one day. The registrar announces that “Attendance is not compulsory, we believe in mental presence and not physical presence”. Placecom committee guarantees summer internship in 2 days to the entire batch, seniors are professional in their behavior, admin announces that co-ed hostels have been opened for MBA students and staying there is compulsory. Every second person drinks, third person is a party animal, fourth person plays poker and every gal is single. Welcome to NMiMS Folks…the Dream B-School...!!! Day 2 à the Outbound Stint that wasn’t: Now that it has been proved that your coming to NM was indeed an epic idea, it’s time for some outbound celebrations. AC buses to drive you there, free cold drinks on arrival, bunjee jumping, red bull gals to cheer you for entire day, speed boat riding and free beer at the end of day…Voila..The day well spent, ain’t it? Day 3 à Simulating with Games: After being treated like executives of the MBA Clan, it is time to actually be an executive…Counter Strike style but without the guns and the killing off course. So here it is, the Simulation that wasn’t… We get to experience world class internet connectivity; we learned everything that is to be learned about management today. Half the batch has decided to be entrepreneur today, the other half are already entrepreneurs. After a day of outbound followed by a day of intelligent gaming, comes a day to meet the big guns and see how business is run every day. Ratan Tata addressed us, so did Mukesh Ambani, everybody loves NM, all industry people wish to hire students only from NM, we are the creamiest (in every dirty sense too!!!) Day 5 à the Case we Studied: Now it’s that day which will be a preview of your lives (that wasn’t) for the next 2 years. A 2 page case. Faculty gives a 15 min nap break, 10 mins cold drink break, 5 min pee break, and we are given the privilege to sleep for the remaining 60 mins. Every class will be conducted in the same manner, class participation is discouraged, infact new rules say that the more one speaks, the lesser marks he or she gets. Day 6 à Mumbai Meri Jaan…!!! The entire Mumbai police force has cleared all roads for infamous “NM Mumbai Darshan”, free breakfast at leopold, get to trade inside the sensex, taken on the top of Gateway of India, get to meet Amitabh Bachchan at his home, first team gets a cash prize of 10 lakhs, rest everybody gets 50% discount at Asiad. Every TV star roaming on the roads acknowledges NM folks and alcohol is cheaper than water here. Well, by the end of our first week we had started loving the city & more than that...the NM way of things. Even though you may not realize it now…but trust us...you would eventually...!!! Until then, love thy anthem…sing along…N..M..i (chota wala)..M…S….chorus mein….N..M…i….M…S….!!! … with hands swinging in the air…one more time…N..M…i…M…S…………………..!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
