A Report on the Sixth Orientation Programme 2013
It is a tradition of every institution to hold ‘orientation ceremony’ at the onset of a new academic session to counsel its newcomers. As K R Mangalam Institute of Management entered in its sixth academic year, all enthusiastic freshers and other members of the institution got together on 29th July 2013 for a 3-day long orientation programme.
The very first day of the programme witnessed feeble and timid new faces. Each student was absolutely fixed in his/ her chair and was consciously looking around the place. We had placed the new batch in a large room where the document checklist was being corrected. An air of apprehension was running through the room. As seniors, we took charge and began with an introduction session. In a very friendly manner, we asked our newcomers to come up and briefly introduce themselves. Each one was initially hesitant but the atmosphere was now beginning to get a little relaxed. The faces now had a sense of serenity. As the little chat between us ended, we requested the new batch to proceed to the seminar hall.
Seminar hall was all prepared to conduct the succeeding programme. Students quickly took their seats and the orientation began with a lamp lighting ceremony. Our Director, Prof. Vijay Anand Dubey initiated the proceedings. Other dignified professors and teachers accompanied him. The programme finally began and the students were introduced to their respective faculty members. A video clip titled ‘Life at KRM’ was then shown to the students. The video featured the students’ life at the campus. The first day of the programme ended with senior students sharing their experiences at college and our Centre Head, Ms. Manvi Arora wishing the students luck for their upcoming ventures. Students then enjoyed some snacks that were arranged for them in the college premises.
The second day of the orientation programme arrived. On the second day students were made aware of the examination practices and procedures. Also we discussed the various clubs and committees that form a part of ‘Life at KRM’. Senior students shared the memories of the cultural activities, trips and other events that were conducted in the previous academic session and how the new batch can get involved in the same. The students discussed their areas of interest and how they can contribute to the cultural practices of the institution. The students were quite energetic and displayed friendliness and congeniality.
The programme was furthered by guest lectures by two very eminent personalities of the corporate world. Mr. K. R. Kaushik discussed the state of businesses in the current Indian Market. It gave the new students an insight into what corporate world is and how this course of management would make them efficient to deal with the endeavours. Mr. Wasim Alam delivered another lecture on the crucial topic of ‘Business Ethics’. Business ethics are critical for any business to flourish. Thus this topic was selected to make the upcoming managers aware of the importance and peculiarity of ethics in appropriate functioning of any organization.
The second day finally came to an end with the distribution of some refreshments.
The third and the final day of the orientation programme was little different. It was not conducted in the college premises like the usual days but it included traveling and adventure and fun. The third day was the industrial visit to the ‘Mother Dairy’ plant in East Delhi. Students appeared on campus early in the morning for the trip. Everyone was wearing the white and red T-Shirt with the institution logo. Buses were then loaded with the students and the journey had commenced.
Students enjoyed the trip in the bus. They were singing, eating and clicking pictures. As the bus stopped in front of the Mother Dairy main entrance, everyone got down slowly and proceeded inside the plant. The head of the plant had organized a presentation for the students. The presentation showed the workings of Mother Dairy across the country and the various milk products that they offer. It was a very informative presentation. After the presentation the students were taken on a trip around the factory. It was a huge plant. It took almost half an hour to visit the whole factory. There were magnificent containers which contained 1 lac liters of milk each. It was a very elucidative experience.
As the visit around the factory finished, personnels of Mother Dairy readied containers of milk for students to drink. Everybody enjoyed their unlimited drinks. They also offered ice creams to everybody. People at Mother Dairy were very sincere and cordial. All the students and teachers then got together for a group photograph. Everybody seemed to enjoy the visit to the fullest. At the completion of the visit everybody got into the bus again for a trip back.
However everybody had got tired and was hungry. Therefore it was decided that on the way back the bus would stop at V3S mall for refreshments and leisure time. Thus students got down at the mall, had food, and played video games. It was in all a great experience. The trip was necessary to give the students an understanding of how the management in the outer world takes place and how they as upcoming managers are expected to be. K R Mangalam provides such opportunities to its students all year round in the form industrial visits, guests lectures, and competitions. These grooms students holistically and help in their becoming more responsible and efficient managers.
The final day came to an end and thus the three day orientation programme of K R Mangalam Institute of Management.

Crème de la crème- The shimmering Passion
The very best as the title translates and it goes so true with the event held on 27th September 2013 at the Maddox G.K.-1 venue. The welcomes and the goodbyes have always been very special at K.R. Mangalam. The institution believes the students are the foundation of their existence and a proper invite to the family of KRM will help sustain thriving and exuberant relation that goes beyond the lines of imparting education alone. The whole festivity of the fresher’s party is celebrated with countdown taking its toll backward and a magnificent boom ultimately announcing of arrival of new birds.
So sit back and let us take you to the excitement of the sparkling hoopla. The party was divided in two themes, the commencement was with Bollywood ethnic theme which was like prelims consisting of dancing, singing, skit(group) competitions in which students got the opportunity to showcase their talent and let their wild side emerge in flames behind that timorousness. The talent that proved most effective in proving themselves to be unique with a hint of twist was selected to be competing for various exciting titles. The second part of the celebration was the finale; consider it as slowly reaching to the climax of the movie with nerve chilling suspense of the winners and what is to come forth.
It was as if the evening had so manifolds and with only time could that be explored and so it was, my friend. The theme given was western wears and I only speak for I heard in loud whispers that student council much appreciated the western attire. The event was at the lavishing Maddox from 2:00pm to 8:00pm. The ambience was most soothing and music in the air that made hard to not enjoy the evening. Not only the students but the faculty found hard not to shake a leg or two on the beats of the tune.
Snacks and drinks were made available for the lost energy in all the dance moves. Then began the more practiced ramp walk with a question answering round on basis of which various titles were distributed as Mr. and Ms. Fresher( BBA & MBA), Photogenic, Beautiful smile, Best dressed and Attitude.
The honorable seats for judges’ position were so correctly acquired by Ms. Avjeet Kaur, Ms. Manpreet Randhawa and Ms. Manvi Arora. They with their years of experience made most appropriate choices and none disagreed to the results generated. When the students were allowed to be students, they came to their worst or best whatever you may say, when that little child inside them took toll over their mind and body. When asked to some of the participants regarding the party, they commented, “Good one” as other said,
“I never knew teachers could be that participative”,
“It was a great party, great crowd and all in all a hit”,
while one was too busy remembering the evening once again and gave a sly smile of some mischief that he might have done, he showed thumbs up and then he slid back to whatever made him smile about that party. In covering the fresher’s party, I got to know that what it is like to be a kid again and dance like you could careless, what it is like to have faculty who are more of a friend when one needs, what it is like to let everyone be a part of your smile and so the happiness becomes thrice, as for the boy with mischievous smile, who knows what interesting secrets he holds of that evening which will remain unknown. Those who attended the party does believe that KRM will always remain in their memories for time to come and will ignite the light of education for their careers as well.
So to all a goodnight and yet more interesting events awaits.
Guest Lecture - Mr.Joginder Bajaj (Retd G.M – PNB bank)
All of us have this ultimate streak and urge to catch hold of a produce which meets our requirements and is attractive enough. But have we ever thought. What is it that makes a product attractive & valuable?
It’s all one Game of” Marketing”; which is to actively promote a product or service. It’s a “push tactic”. One shouldn’t confuse branding with marketing because branding is not push but “Pull”. Branding is a communication of characteristics, values & attributes that classify what this particular brand is & is not!
“Branding is strategic, marketing is tactical” as said by Mr. Bajaj, to make his point more clear he added “marketing may contribute to a brand, but the brand is bigger than any particular marketing effort.
So, basically branding is what remains after the marketing has swep through the room. The brand is ultimately what determines if you will become a local customer or not.
One should understand the 5 p’s which contributes to marketing:
• product (service)
Before buying a product we have to be clear about what we actually need & is the product worth the pay?
“Everything that glitters is not Gold. The aim of marketing is to know and understand the customer so well the product or service fits him $ sells itself. Business has only two function- marketing& innovation.
As his conclusion he quoted Barack Obama “There is probably a perverse pride in our administration that we are going to do the right thing, even if in short- term it is unpopular. We think anybody who has occupied the office has to remember that success is determined by an intersection in policy& politics and that we can’t be neglecting of marketing, PR and public opinion.”
