Earlier in February this year, before I stepped in to the gates of SiBM to be interviewed for my shot at
one of the most prestigious B-schools of India. I had only heard of the ‘Hilltop’s beauty’. Once or
twice I had just casually googled to see what the hoopla was all about. But on Feb 13 when I was there
and I knew why the makers chose to shoot ‘Bodyguard’ at Lavale!
Converting SiBM was itself a dream come true for me. I was elated when it was conveyed to me that all
my efforts had translated into an opportunity to study at an institute that is known to attract top talent
from all over India. It meant that I’d be spending the next two years in the company of and in
competition with some of the sharpest minds in the country and as the program commenced I realized
that people were even sharper than what I had anticipated. Eat into this- One of the exercises expected
us to come up with an advertisement for any product of our choice and boy oh boy people had ideas
oozing out of them from everywhere! At that instant I thought I realized what I was pitted against here
in Lavale but Friday was waiting anxiously to draw me an even bigger picture. The talent round was a
blast. It was like ‘Jack in the Box’ personified as almost every student popped up on the stage brimming
with talent. Dancers, musicians & actors and if that wasn’t enough we even had a magician!
……a lot more to write since the experience still continues
