Even as the evening set in and lights lit up the campus of Indian Institute of Management-Ahmedabad (IIM-A ) on Wednesday, a couple of students from the institute remained busy at the main gate. They were registering names of guest students who have arrived in groups from different institutes across the country.
The premier management schools campus was high on a celebratory mood and the campus was busier than ever as hundreds of students have started to pour in to take part in Chaos-2011 which begins on Thursday evening.
Student of IIM-A and media coordinator for Chaos-2011 Divya Suresh said, We are getting overwhelming response from students across the country and many of them have already started arriving. While around 100 students have already arrived, the number is increasing rapidly. We are expecting more than 700 students from outside the city to arrive at the campus in the next few days. Apart from these outstation students, those from the city will also take part in the festival every year.
Students from institutes like IIT Bombay, Delhi University, Management Development Institute (MDI) at Gurgaon and so on have also registered to take part in IIM-As Chaos-2011. An engineering student of Netaji Subhas Institute of Technology (NSIT ) at Delhi who had arrived at IIM-A, Dhruv Goyal said, As far as I know, we are the first students from our institute to come and take part in IIM-As Chaos. Goyal has come along with a team of 15 students from his institute. Another student of the team Nandini Madan said, We have come mainly to take part in the street play competition. However we are also looking forward to take part in various events of the festival.
