Special Memories

"I was a resident of H4 at IIT Bombay. I enjoyed swimming, playing chess and volleyball apart from academics in the Industrial Management department which later gave birth to IIT Bombay's School of Management. My best memories of the campus are eating late night and sighting the leopards".
