Aadi Ant Aarambh - Onward Five

ISB turned five this year. We are the fifth batch of future leaders. We would soon target the five hundred graduates mark in a couple of years. We were five musicians on stage that night, doing a couple of indipop numbers to both our and the crowd's delight.

The five year celebration was definitely organized very efficiently. More importantly, though, the five years of ISB has been very nicely coordinated and executed. I had met a 2002, first batch, alum a week ago. An IPS officer, who went to sales and marketing after ISB, and now is back to serving the nation. He recounted the difficulties that the first batch had... bringing the professors, recruiters and also the next batch of students in. Still, there was never a problem with the facilities, the schedules, the stay, the life, the food (ok, i take back the last one - Sarovar, listening?). Even as the excellence was being aspired to, the organization had been perfected since the beginning.

The five year celebration coincided with the ISB Leadership Summit. Nuff has been written about it elsewhere. here. In spite of the fast pace of ISB, we still managed to come together and setup a slew of performances that evening of the 5th year celebration. A fashion show, two band performances, three skits, many singles and duets and the grand launch of the ISB Radio. What I will remember also was that the little kid, Tanmay was a hero on stage that evening. Video here soon...
