Photos from the IIMB Convocation, 2006

I should be posting photos from the rehearsal first, but since I have not yet named and sifted through those photos, here are photos from the convocation evening. This is me, after I had been robed and sashed (is that the correct usage?). Anyway...

And here are four shining stars from the class of 2006! Left to right: Prashanth, Shivam, Suresh, and me.

Harish Arora with his fancy camcorder, and Vinay Avasthi in appreciative mirth.

I am incorrible with a camera. These are Prof Jishnu Hazra, chairperson of the PGP program, and Prof Raj Bandi, chairperson of the PGSEM program.

Sign of the times... And IIMB too has a nice widescreen display on display as you enter the institute.

This is the procession as it starts to make its way to the amphitheater.

The high tea. Some snacks, juices, and sweets. Amit Singh was busy with his camera. Shooting me shoot him.

Once the procession started to make its way to the amphitheater, you could see that the chief guest, chairman, and director were there on the dias. While the four chairpersons were standing at the entrance. From left to right, they are the chairpersons of the FPM, PGPPM, PGP, and PGSEM programs.

The dias.

31st Annual Convocation - Press Coverage

Here is press coverage of the 31st annual convocation. Diplomas for the FPM, PGP, PGPPM, and PGSEM programs were handed out.
The chief guest was Sunil Bharti Mittal (Anil Ambani was the chief guest in 2004, while Anand Mahindra was the chief guest in 2005). Mukesh Ambani was supposed to be present, in his capacity as the Chairman of the Board of Governors of IIMB, but was in the US at the time to attend some energy meet.

The Times of India, Bangalore edition. Students in the yellow sashes are the FPM graduates, while those in the green sashes are the PGP graduates.

Vijay Times. That's me (Abhinav) receiving the gold medal from Sunil Mittal. The second photo above is where you can see the PGSEM graduates seated on the right, in blue sashes, while the PGPPM graduates are seated on the left, in red sashes.

The Hindu. That's Gaurav Agarwal, of the US $193,000 salary offer fame, receiving the gold medal from Sunil Mittal (link to BT article).

Deccan Herald. Abhik Sengupta is the one seated on the extreme right. And that's me (Abhinav) with my tongue sticking out, taking a photo.
