Know Your Buddy – Ritwika Ray

1464099968797Hailing from the City of Joy I have to be passionate about food.So much so that I worship sweets. Jalebis and Gulab Jamuns need special mention 🙂 Basically I adore junk food. Having said that I am also a health freak and work hard to burn those calories.

I like to try my hands at preparing new dishes. Hope you guys get a taste of my culinary skills soon :)At leisure I like sketching and gardening. Also contribute my bit towards society by actively volunteering for various CSR activities like teaching the under privileged, street cleaning drives etc.

I am quite like Monica from F.R.I.E.N.D.S when it comes to cleanliness 🙂 As a travel enthusiast I love exploring places.Bollywood masala movies interest me.

Here comes a disclaimer..I suffer from Katsaridaphobia which is fear of cockroaches and I go haywire on spotting them.I am sure you guys would get a demo sometime Amusement park rides scare me to death.

Most importantly I love sleeping and can sleep for hours. Wonder how much of a task it would be to stay awake for those assignments

On the professional front I am a B.Tech grad with 4yrs of work ex in TCS and Infosys.

Looking forward to a great time at NMB!!

Know Your Buddy – Dipesh Gupta

I need to find creative diversity because if I get stuck, I get unhappy.

This is the way I am living my life till now.

Being a Mathematics student went in the field of Biotechnology (at NIT Durgapur) then I came in the field of IT stayed there for 2 year and 4 month. After doing all these things I didn’t get satisfaction at work and  I felt something was missing in me so I planned to do MBA from a repudiated college to fill the missing gap in me.

Apart from studies at my Graduation college I Participated in Presidential election , which I  lost eventually, but it gave me a everlasting experience. I organized couple of Cultural events during college life. Having lived in all zones of India – North(Home Town), South(Work Place), East(College) and West(Sister’s place) I got a habit of eating\trying new stuffs and exploring news places, covered many places of South India during work life and I would like to explore even more places with new friends.

Looking forward to meet everyone soon.

Hey, Everyone!

I’m Surbhi, born and brought up in Delhi.

Well, I can end up writing pages describing myself but to keep it short and simple–
I’m a thinking spree, a chatterbox (As all Gemini’s are), a sleepaholic, a foodie and a fun loving person. I love to travel and interact with people because I believe that every person has something new to share and you may never know how it could have a vital impact someday.

I have worked with Infosys for around one and a half years after completing my Sc.) from IP university, Delhi.

Now after a gap of two years, Re-living the college days is going to be really exciting.
I look forward to meeting you all and have a wonderful time ahead at Nmims, Bangalore.


Know Your Buddy – Pranoti Puro

Hello people!!!

I am Pranoti Puro from Aamchi Mumbai – a place that is known for its hustle and bustle. Living here for last 23 years has taught me to always live life on the edge.  I am somebody who loves the fast-paced life, loves to be busy throughout and an absolute workaholic. And yes don’t you consider me boring just because I mentioned workaholic. I am equally fun and lively once I am partying.

Now a bit about my educational background- I am a finance grad and I have worked for 2 years in sales in Birla Sun Life Asset Management Company. I am really passionate about branding and marketing and look forward to enhancing my skills in this area.

I love travelling and dancing. I am a movie buff and a foodie too. And all those people who while reading this are making fun of the name, u better stop right there!

Well, I think this is all that you need to know about me for now. Baki baatein hum Bangalore mein milke karenge. 🙂


Know Your Buddy – Surbhi Bagri

image1I am  from Kolkata. I have completed my graduation in management from J.D.Birla Institute Of Management. With the motto that I don’t ever want to lose the child inside me makes me a really talkative, fun loving, mischievous and a crazy person.

I am really passionate about music, drama and dance. I have been learning Rabindra Sangeet and some musical instruments. I can sing and listen to music all day long. I have been the part of drama team during my school days so I really enjoy acting and delivering unnecessary dialogues. I am not a great dancer but whenever I dance, I just surrender myself to the music and dance my heart out.

My creativity pops out only when I am supposed to give unique ideas for an event or when I decide to gift handmade stuffs to my closed ones. I love to capture all the beautiful moments of my life which makes a completely “picture freak” person. I have done many adventure sports like paragliding, skiing, rock climbing, trekking ,river rafting, bungee jumping and zipping and I wish to travel the whole world and do all the existing extreme sports.

.My love for writing is solely dependent on my mood. Whenever I feel that I need to express something, I do it by writing poems or just expressing my emotions in a piece of paper. One of my poems is written below:

Memories are the moments that we cannot record,

Memories are the happy times that stab us like a million swords.

Memories are like those dreams that can never unfold,

Memories are those words that forever remain untold.


Memories are the tangy spices whose flavor last so long,

Memories are those sentiments that are woven into songs.

Memories are just as sweet as sprinkles, chocolate or Sugar,

The Only difference is that they promise to last forever.

Memories are those sounds that wake you on eerie nights,

When Dreams aren’t so friendly and there are hours for the morning light.


Memories are the magical slices with which we sandwich the heart,

But these are bound with a painful happiness that never plans to part.


I am really looking forward to an awesome journey ahead with every one of you.
