To take a walk down the corridor of nostalgia, the Alumni Meet - Milaap 2016 of Atharva Institute of Management Studies witnessed the amazing inaugural session by Prof. Paul Rosario. Prof. Paul made sure that the event had that energy and enthusiasm in the beginning itself.
The inaugural session was followed by the cultural programme wherein the current students of MMS as well as PGDM had prepared some songs and dances for their seniors and super seniors. It was a nostalgic feeling for the alumni who relived their days at Atharva with the beautiful songs and video. Followed the cultural session, we had Prof. Rajan talking to the Alumni. But there was a twist this time, wherein he encouraged students to make video chat and show it live during the session. Sir spoke about how Alumni Network in Atharva has grown leaps and bounds. Prof. Rajan also focused on how Alumni are the assets to the institute and it feels great to have the alumni back to their roots every year.
The last and the most interesting session was the Interaction with the Alumni. Here, the alumni students came up on the dias and shared their memories of Atharva. Jatin Damania shared his experience in Atharva and how Atharva has grown over the years. Mayur Joshi talked about how he feels being the pass out of the very first batch of Atharva and his path towards being the VP of Anand Rathi. Parag Rane talked about the difference between life at Atharva and Work Life and advised students to enjoy each moment being a student as it won't come back again. Pooja Bhayani, Shruti Poddar, Disha Jugat, and Nikhil Agwane talked about the importance of accepting jobs that come to you as the real world has few opportunities so it's necessary to not lose out on jobs.
Great bonhomie was observed everywhere with old students reliving their old memories with their batch mates, seniors and juniors. Many of the current students were also seen interacting with their pass out seniors and learning from their experiences. The event ended with a cake cutting and dinner.
