I quote Albert Einstein, “Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value”. This adage is what inspires me. Even after completing my engineering I still felt a lapse between who I am and who I want to be. That’s when I decided to pursue MBA in one of the most renowned colleges – NDIM. This college filled in those gaps for me and I feel a completely different person now. A man with higher ambition, dedication, perseverance and a man of value.
There were many intriguing activities at NDIM that motivated the students to indulge in. Spandan, our college’s cultural fest was one such event. I, being an organiser, learnt the significance of teamwork and also matured as an individual. With certain responsibilities entrusted upon me I was able to discover and further cultivate my leadership quality. The zeal and zest with which we all, NDIMites did the preparation, motivated me and in the process I even overcame my stage fright which has always been a staggering point in my life.Continuous projects and presentations have boosted my confidence level and made me eloquent and articulate. My summer internship at the Council of Leather Exports(only a few could crack the process) was an educating experience. I overcame my inhibitions and got the first flavour of the corporate world and work assignments, which meant strict discipline. The faculty at NDIM has been very supportive and encourage the students to strive towards excellence. I was able to connect with them instantaneously. They stimulate a student’s inquisitiveness and help them become fastidious. The ambience of this college is also invigorating and refreshing.In my childhood I read a poem by Walt Whitman, ‘The Voice of Rain’, where the rain says, “And all that in them without me were seeds only, latent, unborn”. This college can be compared to the rain, which has germinated many more dormant seeds just like me. It has given me numerous moments to cherish and friends to hold on to. This college was my biggest step on the journey to success and I am grateful for it. It was a life changing experience. Thank you NDIM.
