Off Goes 2014..!!

“New Year’s Day. A fresh start. A new chapter in life waiting to be written. New questions to be asked, embraced, and loved. Answers to be discovered and then lived in this transformative year of delight and self-discovery. Today carve out a quiet interlude for yourself in which to dream, pen in hand. Only dreams give birth to change.”

The year 2014 passed by like a cool breeze of air, leaving us at DoMS, awestruck with wonderful memories that we would cherish for the rest of our lives. It still seems like yesterday when the 36th batch of DoMS had entered the much sought after arena of pursuing MBA. 2014 began like a roller coaster ride, full of fun-filled learning and lots of other festivities.

 The year started with the welcome of the 36th batch into the DoMS family which shares a bond of love and sense of belongingness among its members. The onboarding program included FIRM games which were not only exciting but also gave us friends for life. The various games helped intermingling of 35th and 36th batches which now work like one big racing team in the adventurous ride FIRM'36Thcalled MBA. It filled juniors’ hearts with warm joy to see how seniors stood up with them, guided and made them feel at home. Of course! A home-away-from-home. FIRMs were a good ice breaker.

Mr&Ms_Freshers'14

Up next was the much awaited Freshers’ Party where the junior batch was made to feel that they were one of their kind, special and adorable. If every human being loves to feel special, it was exactly what we felt while walking through the hallway with showers of welcome, blessings in flowers from the senior batch amidst hooting and applaud. It all felt like being the tinsels glowing and gleaming in our charm and glory.

Teachers’ Day celebration were the next event in our journey at DoMS. The students performed various events as a mark of respect to their teachers. The energy that enthralled the A13 hall was immense and the sight of this event was worth watching. The guest lectures and Analytics’ Conclave- ‘Prabandh’ filled whatever was left of the first trimester.DSC_0244

The fervour and zeal to perform better and devour more knowledge increases with time and learning. The same got imbibed in all of us. The advent of 2nd Trimester brought with itself the EXCITEMENT to do better, baby yet first steps towards maturity in the life called MBA. All minds after returning from ‘Pooja’ holidays were set on taking ourselves to the next level. A sense of responsibility developed for each other. The graph of overall development went up and only up. The bond with DoMS became stronger and so did the friendship among batch mates and with seniors.

Currently in the second trimester, the 36th batch is having, what we call, an exquisite time that isFreshers'36thbatch not only vivid in terms of knowledge but also exotic in terms of experience. 2014, towards the end has filled us with nostalgia, made us realize that time is running fast and there is much to be accomplished. The mere thought that each passing day subtracts a day that we are meant to spend in the beautiful campus of NIT,Trichy makes us sad. But then, that is life, all days end and are followed by new ones full of exciting opportunities. Thus we look at 2015 as a year full of dreams, hopes and resolutions. We welcome the year 2015 with a warm heart hoping to give our best and make it yet another memorable one in the history of DoMS!

Wish you all a very warm, joyous and happy new year 2015!
