Hi There [May. 2nd, 2005|11:05 pm]


Hi Folks, Glad to find a few LJers from K. I'll be joining K this year. To give a quick update on some major phases of my life: I currently work for HCL Tech. in Chennai (been there for ~3 years), before that I was in the US getting a masters in CS from the Univ. of Utah. And before that I got a B.Tech (Chemical) from CECRI, Karaikudi.

I am a dabbler, and did not want to miss out the mba experience. So, here I am. :)

We had a mini PGP1/PGP2 get-together in Chennai (N H Road Barista) yesterday. About 6 of us new joinees and 6 PGP2-ers were there. I guess we will meet the rest of the folks in Chennai before the end of the month. The PGP2ers were planning something.

I'm afraid there aren't many more LJers in the '07 batch. I sent a mail to iimk_2007 yahoo groups list. There was no response.

Hey! Welcome! Congrats on being the first seen blogger from the batch of 2007!

I'd like to intro myself in a way only the members of my batch can identify (for old times' sake):

Myself Karan Shah, Batch of 2005. Aka Bhopu; Any bhopu but the auto bhopu :)

Was a staunch Chennai-ite until IBM uprooted me from there last month. Am sad ( :( ) I missed the Chennai meet; who all turned up?

Blog about people... ggollerkeri maye you can take the mantle there

skarra and me had already found each other on LJ, but I didn't know an unofficial Chennai meet was even happening! But I guess the formal alumni/freshers will happen later in the month.

And kshah: loved the intro!

I didn't know so many guys were going to turn up. Looks like a bunch of people were trying to kill time. :)

BTW, the 'official' meet at chennai is now finalized - 21 May. Not sure about the place, though.

Hm, I can only remember 3 names: Puneet, Suman, Abhijeet. There were 3 more names I can't recall :)

IBM has an office on TTK road, very near my house. What work happens there?

There is one more blogger from the incoming batch that I know of. He is not on LJ, though. Check out his blog at http://himalayanwind.blogdrive.com

There was another blogger (anme of Rohit Anand) who has since shifted base from IIMK to IIML (got thru the waiting list at L, I believe).

And yes, before I forget, welcome aboard :-)


PS: GG, plz do something for the non LJ-ers like me who also want to be a part of the IIMK community :(

Sorry, didn't check this site in a while, assuming it was dead.

I think Sriram's solution seems to be the simplest (meaning involving minimal effort for me!).

I think there is a way you can get the feed from your regular blog into your LJ id, that way it's easier for all of us to keep track of your blog too!
