Dear chomz, Even though i know you hate being called that in public, i can't help myself. You were the first person who made me realise that height isn't that a big barrier in basketball :P We might not be the bestest of friends but i sure know that i can count on you and you should know that i'll be there for you, you can always say 'meghu meghu' and get your job done :P Lots of love, Meghu.
Karan sir 🙌🏻 safe to say I got my intern thanks to you? 😂😂 I remember when I told you I'm in auto and you were like "yaar auto team best hai infi parties" and "haa haa, tera ppo pakka" xD I'd call you up with the stupidest doubts and you'd talk to me patiently and help me out. Everytime. Intern ho, POR ho, placements ho; all our interactions have just made me respect you more. I hope our future corporate path makes us meet/talk more often 💛😁
Kothuu! Final year me interaction jaise jaise badha, I got to know that you are one of the most sensible and logical people I have met in insti. I am glad yolo DDs happened and we all spent good times together! As good as you are on the court, you have made a mark for yourself in insti life and I see big things coming your way!! Consult life macha dena and I look forward to meeting you soon! <3
Chomuu! Humare last sem ke itneee saaaare planss :'( I've always found you super frank, super confident and a rare combination of lazy and enthusiatic xD It has been great knowing you through basky and ofcourse all those dreadful courses we've taken together. For the smart and hardworking person you are, i know you'll do great in life. I'll miss you. Hopefully our paths cross again cz i know we can be much better friends. I adore you <3 Stay in touch :)
Yo dude! Had heard a lot about you in insti but finally got to interact properly in 5th year, and I'm so grateful for it! Pathak toh humesha tareef karta hi rehta hai teri, but I've myself realized that you're an amazing person at heart, and really helpful too! Case team meets were fun with you, with the background music at the start :P Sad that we couldn't have a proper case team outing :/ Must say I relate with you in a lot of things and fundae, and I really hope we stay close (iykwim)!
Karan, thanks for being so sweet, so helpful, and among the best resume reviewers out there. OC to the best Aavhannn, you're among the nicest people out there :)
Yo Karan ! Thanks for being my mentor, friend and big brother 🧡. One of the best part of my insti life has been working with you. Kitna kuch seekha hai aapse. You have always helped me to take decisions whenever I was in any dilemma. You have helped me to grow as a person professionally. I will always remember our hospi room fun and Aavhan room memories. Remember the scooty ride from H10 to SAC for 'someone', who called you bhaiya 😂. Thanks for always motivating me to come out of my comfort zone. Life mai jab bhi kuch problem aayegi aapko hi call karke disturb karunga :P Treats pending reh gayi aapki kaafi saari wo dedena :P
Bhai <3 thanks a lot for being an elder brother and a mentor to me! Right from 1st year NSO sessions to last semester's random discussions you have always supported me through thick and thin! Thanks for being the who you are, humble, helpful, cheerful and so rational about everything :)) The amount of love and respect that I have for you cannot be described in words. Those freshman year tournaments and IBP are memories that I'll cherish, also this year's MI adventures were fun (I hope you get the ref) You're definitely the best when it comes to reviewing resumes :p That Beer Cafe treat is still pending woh toh deni hi hogi :p Stay in touch <3
You were one of the best TAs I've had!
Karan I admire your passion for sports man! Always made time for it. I think I missed out on ssos :p You always had so many cases at hand that I never had to read up cases for our meets. I had a great time during our prep and we have to celebrate the group's success soon ! Wish you the very best for your future bro <3
Rarely do I see people manage things like you do in your calm and composed way. The way you co-ordinated among teams and organised Aavhan was admirable, to say the least. Btw, I was pleasantly surprised that you didn't want to become a CL. Good for me, I suppose. For keeping in touch, no worries: I'll consult you whenever I have an issue :p
Hi Kothadiya!!!! Infi mazze liye hai tune n infi pareshan bhi Kiya hai 😛. Also let's not forget tune bahot kattaya hai labs mein 😛. But it was all fun having a lab mate like you for all these years. Stay in touch and all the best for future 😀
Yo karan ..Kaafi jyada dedicated hardworking senior on a same note utte hi humble ho aap ..humesa sabki help ke liye ready. .final sem me aur maje krte nevertheless milte rahenge Mumbai me hi hai 🙂..
Hi Karan! Whenever I think of you, I find you to be a very calm, composed and humble person. And you sing reallly reallllly gooood. I hope you learn playing guitar very soooon and send me your recordings. I have been eagerly waiting. We will stay in touch. Mast machate rehna jivan me. <3< 3.
Karan kothadiya..Convener tenure bass naam aur kaam hi suna tha.. Then 3rd year me jaake when aapse achese baat hui and then I got to know how great a person you are. And then Aavhan ke time aapse itna kuch sikhne mila honestly.The way you handled everything and the way you used your experience.And yess, hospi was fun.😉😀Also thanks a lot for helping me out during the placements and case studies. Aage bhi kuch bhi help ke liye aapko hi call karuga so utha lena😊. Stay in touch♥️
Same here man glad to meet you in the final year. Stay in touch and all the best for the future. Really admire the positive outlook you have towards everything.
Maine pareshaan nahi kar rahi thi kabhi bhi bas masti kar rahi thi :p Thanks for keeping your promise and giving me infinite treats :) We barely know each other but whenever we interact, I always get those happy and positive vibes. I hope aapko log jaldi samajh jaaye and you find your 'understanding one'. No love but chotu si pareshaani, A
KK❤! 2nd year me h3 and sports council ne milvaya, tab se leke you have always been ready to help me, be it academically, personally, work related ya in general life ke koi bhi fundae etc. Kaafi saari bakchodi, council, trips, treats, aavhan aur kuchh epic discussions(like FR vs DX, Dual me convert hona chahiye ya nhi, election etc😜) ye sab yaad rahega. It was great working with you. You are a man of ethics, spirit, calm and helpful. You understand me quite well. and that's one of the reasons you being my favouritest senior!❤Aavhan me mene jo bhi BT di uske liye I am really really sorry.🥺Thanks for being a good mentor, motivator, friend and a helpful senior. Stay as you are and be in touch
Yo Bro! We didn't get a chance to talk properly until my final year but I used to hear a lot about how dedicated you were towards both basketball and being the basketball secy. All I have really heard is praises about you from the common friends which really made me believe that you are a great person indeed. After meeting you and having conversations with you I realized that indeed was very true! Really looking forward to the good times and memories, (AT)K and Poets of the hall ftw! PS: Tomu is such a good nickname to be not used :')
Karan, I've always admired you for the passion and dedication you bring into everything you do. From all the guidance during my convener tenure (did the Council have journalism conveners after that?) to helping me with resumes time and again, and finally having you on the SMP team, there are so many things I'd like to remember about this journey. Take care and stay in touch!
Bhai, your commitment and dedication towards things you're passionate about is just something extraordinary, and you've deserved everything good that has come your way in insti. We bonded over studies in the first and second year, and then we shifted to bigger and better things - movies, series and books :P I hope that we soon read a few common books and then get a chance to discuss them (slight nod towards my recommendation of Crime and Punishment :P). Also, I feel like I've not told you this enough - you're an amazing writer as well. Please write more. Baaki toh you're going into a job that's tailor-made for your talents, I know you'll kill it there :D Stay in touch man. Loads of love!
Karan🙌 Our case group landed me more than a job. Hanging around after every meet at your place actually kept me sane during those times. I can't thank you enough for that. There's always such a positive environment about all things you which makes it so easy to talk to you about anything under the sun. That attitude is so damn infectious. Loads to look up to. We'll definitely stay friends and hang around, irrespective of same circles n all. P.S. We four have an outing pending when we come back to Mumbai.😁
Dude, I could've never have imagined a better person for leading us during Aavhan. You conveyed such calmness and confidence, that did wonders for all of us when the pressures were on. So humble, so down to earth, but most of all your ability to motivate someone is insane, you could even motivate a tiger to become vegetarian if you wanted to xP I wish you the best of luck with everything ahead. Take care bro :D
Yo karan, Thanks to the case team, I got to know you. You always had so many cases, and always gave honest feedbacks, thanks for coming up with cool strategies and your insights. I really like how you took out time for sports everyday and to read books. You have a very helpful nature, i know from third year. Also, really feel grateful that I was a member in your case group. we will have a case group treat soon. Keep rocking in your life ahead. Best of luck.
One (only?) thing good NSO did to me, was meeting amazing people like you! Though we have not talked much, but each time we did you appreciated me for all little things, this helped me get a lot of confidence in whatever I did! I can't thank you enough for that! You are always very approachable and friendly and so down to earth, with a positive vibe around you! Will definitely keep in touch 😊
It was always a pleasure watching you play on the courts, commanding the team and shooting 3 pointers, Inter IIT and otherwise. Your leadership in Aavhan likewise was so good - so calm and cool, yet getting things done. The best leader I have worked under, hands down 🙌.
Bettteee :P, Thanks for the Rajasthan Trip didn't know kahin aur nahi jaa paungi xD jkkkk brooo. So many trips to naturals, so many book recommendations, so many movies, so many random walks and talks. Thanks for everything. Btw, I still have your book. see you soon.
KK!! Iss duniya ki sab achayion ko mixer mein daal ke jo finally niklega uska aap asli embodiment ho! Itne ache kaise ho sakte ho?? Aapko bandi ke naam se chedne mein bohot maza aaya pichle ek saal mein, jaldi set kar lo ab usse :P Thank you meri bandi waali infi lambi kahaniya sunne ke liye H18 mess mein, haan aur usse bhi bada thanks spy ban ke saari jaanakaari nikalwane ke liye :P Aapne Aavhan yaadgaar bana diya yaar, kya mehnat ki hai aapne, bas ek cheez kahunga 'inspiring'! Aise hi support karte rehna hamesha, books suggestions dete rehna aur insta pe bakchodi karte rehna < 3 Will miss you a lot!
Hello Sir, apan ki baat kaafi kam baar hi hui hai, par har baar apne kuch helpful bataya hai which has always helped me more in life. aapke baare mei itni acchi cheeje suni hai ki aise lagta mai khud hi aapko janta hun. Thanks for all the advice! hope karta hun ki aage bhi milte rahenge!
Late mile apan lekin lagta hai safar kaafi lamba hai. Insti main bht taareef suni hai bhai aapki and milkar lagta hai ki kaafi sahi keh rahe hain log. Movie/series suggestion toh chalte rahenge par milte hain kabhi and dhang se baat karte hain. Woh 2-3 baar ke interaction aapke room ke ek alag hi connect feel karate hain. Machate raho.
Nothing but love :') ❤️ Baki ka sports wale me likha hai 😂
Hey Karan, you are one of the most patient person when it comes to scolding or educating anyone, bohot pyaar se marte ho aap samne wale ki XD. But still apse bohot kuch seekhna tha jo reh gaya pls stay in touch apse bohot sare DD ke funde lene baki hai.
Kothuuuu, kidhar se shuru karu? DD year mein kuch chize mili jinke liye I will be forever grateful, unme se is you 🥺 Thank you so so much for everything. Tereko toh ache se senti sunaunga jab milenge. Thank you for taking me to the trip as well. Aur bahut baar ghumenge bhai boi. And for the umpteenth time I am saying, nhi aane waala wo udne kudne waale trips pe xD I love you bhau 😭 So so much. Thoda ignore karna kam kar dena bas 😌 And infi gyaaaaan diya karo plissss
I don't think I've met anyone as mature and understanding as you in my whole Insti life. And these super-amazing qualities like how passionate your are towards whatever you put your heart in (especially Basketball) to how much you love stories, makes you a unique human. I'm glad you were there during Aavhan and beyond and I hope that our friendship ages like wine. You really deserve all the respect and admiration. Stay the kind person you are. And bhai, saath hi toh rehna hai isliye party scenes toh khatam hone hi nahi hai apne :')
Boss! I've always had great respect for you. Whenever I saw you, I couldn't help wonder that how do you always manage to be so calm and composed. Thanks for bearing me and sorry for any BTs. You handle things very maturely and have great multi-tasking skills. No doubt you are going to achieve great things in life :). Stay in touch sir _/\_
Karan Sir! Best Aavhan OC ever :p Kaafi maze aaye aapki saath kaam karke and kaafi sikhne bhi mila. Hospi wali bakchodiya yaad rahengi hamesha. Ham sab conference room me so rahe the on Day 0 of Aavhan and koi toh contingent aa gaya tha, your reaction after waking up was priceless! All the best for your future and Bhul mat jaana baccho ko XD
OC bhai, you were one person who was so chill and calm. Your contribution towards sports was remarkable, whether in terms of Basketball Or Aavhan. Still remember the GC matches where you always gave ur best instead of anti-cheering. Thanks for giving me memories from Inter IIT (KGP), was goosebump for entire contingent. Hope 2 see u soon, be in touch abhi to convo baaki hai 😜
Hi tomu, in the last five years even if our paths didn't cross a lot of times apart from the meta labs, watching you go through and grow through this journey from a distance has always made me very happy. I've always silently admired your zeal for sports and all the blood, sweat and tears (?) you put in basketball. Your parents made super adorable kids haha. All the best for your future, hope you get all that you wish for and more. Love, ayu. <3
First year NSO me itna interaction nhi hua tha apna. But Aavhan me sath kaam krke maja aya. Bahut kuch seekha aapse. Aise hi mast rehna and machate rehna. Good Luck and keep in touch :)
One of the most respected person of IITB sports! Have heard a lot about your way of life - special mention Aavhan '19 :) Kaafi helpful and a very down to earth personality. Thanks for being there always. Stay in touch!
Hey Karan! Meeting you was such a pleasure! Working with you even more so. Real life mein I'm not this formal :3 Bas kabhi kabhi I find you intimidating that's all :D XD Just kidding, you're one of the kindest and coolest seniors I've had. hmu if you find yourself in Pune :)
Karan, mere bhai..You are one of the smartest person, i have ever meet. Kaafi sikhne ko mila yaar tere se tenure me and ingeneral bhi. Machata reh life me aise hi.
For he's a jolly good fellow, which nobody can deny! :D We'd barely known each other before the final year but there's an ease about you that makes me feel so comfortable talking to you bhai. Easily one of the most polite persons I've known. Wish I'd gotten to know you sooner man. All the best Thada! Love, K
Despite YOLO and BMC, I barely remember interacting with you, except those chance encounters here and there before the final year. More than made up for it, huh? :D I will look back so fondly at all those case preps, outings and in general the time we spent. I really enjoyed talking to you, you're a charm! I know you won't agree to this but you know me a lot more than most people. All the best going forward! Keep in touch and know that you'll always have a good listening year to rant to. xD Cheers to BMC, books and BTs :P Love, K
You're the mentor who got played by the freshies on April Fools Day. You're my friend who makes the lamest jokes, laughs on them alone and then forces everyone to laugh along in pressure. You're so annoyingly full of energy and enthusiasm. You say whatever comes to mind, whenever it does. You are, like me, a lame philosopher. :P You're also one of the kindest persons to me that there ever have been and I know I have been undeserving of it a lot of times. You're too sweet. You're someone who I never want to lose touch with. You are mast. Love, K
Man, you're truly deserving of the plentiful success you've had and will go on to have! I have come to equate Anmol Gupta with Respect. *Roadies Salute* Yet, you're so polite, so approachable and so calm and humble. Look forward to learning a lot more from you in the time to come. Love, K
Bhai tu hi bas bacha hai insti mai jo meko abhi tak Tomu bulata hai. Nostalgic kar deta hai, saare basky ke seniors yaad aate hai. Machau toh infi ho hi bhai. I remember second year jab tum sabke CGs ke interviews ho rahe they and you had told me ki yaar ban toh jaunga mostly, mai accha candidate hu while all others I knew were either afraid or being diplomatic. Tab meko laga tha is bande jaisa confidence aur clarity ho. Look forward to the time together going ahead bro. :D
Only a person as big at heart as you would let someone like me do as I pleased in Aavhan, you being clearly the alpha. That is the sole reason why we have become the friends we are. I remember before the fourth year, the only wonderful memory that I share with you is the night we spent in the car en route Lonavala xD Look at how it all has changed man! I wish we could have all those last sem trips. I also just want to put it out there that Bhand Ritik = Best Ritik. Happily looking forward to the time to come. Love, K
I've found you to be extremely kind and sweet. Thanks for lending me your guitar with the condition that I MUST make use of it, sadly that couldn't happen. Infi respect for you because you manage to do a herculean task, dealing with a certain special person day in and day out :P I'd love to stay connected :D
I had no idea who Mookund Sureka was until the final year, but boy am I glad I met you! You have no airs about you man so talking to you is very pleasing. All your quirky fundae make you such a fun personality man xD I'd love to get to know you better. Bhul mat jaana :P Love, K
Man, you've helped me stand on my feet in insti acads. I know for sure I haven't thanked you enough for teaching me entire courses at length before exams. I admire the way that you have so gracefully dealt with all the times when insti was unfair to you and sadly there were plenty of those. Yet, you never let it show and that is extremely inspiring. I love when we talk about books TV and films because I always know you're going to patiently listen and also that a fabulous suggestion will be around the corner. All the best at Ashoka! (there, do as the romans do xD) Keep in touch bro! :) Love, K
All our labs were fun, thanks to you. I know I'm the biggest culprit behind all those jokes we made about you but you were such a sport all the time. I'll apologize for not being so good to you at times. I also want to thank you for generously sharing your notes over the years. It was great knowing you! :)
I remember how we used to push each other up for intros in the 1st year and eventually Meghana would be the one caught. I remember you crying on the day of elections in the 1st year and I couldn't help laughing xD I also remember you stonewalling entire opposite teams at Madras and later. I may not have let you know but I respect you a lot. You're a go-getter, you're honest about who you are and you have always helped me with everything that I asked you for. All the best going ahead. I'd love to be better friends than we've been :) Love, K
It has been so wonderful for me to have had you as a roommate in insti man. I know I haven't been the best of roommates but you bore with me and I want to truly thank you for that! You deserve all the success that you will get brother. I'll surely keep in touch. Love, K
Can't imagine huge chunks of insti life without you. 1st year, basky, all our Meta courses, infi treats (ft. Radhika and her antics) and all.. You've always helped me whenever I needed. Thanks for that and also for bearing with me at times, especially during my tenure. There is a wonderful air of simplicity about you that is so endearing. I may or may not have bhand-told Vatan once that I was way more senti for you than for him XD Needless to say, I promise to keep in touch. Love, K
I've only come to respect you more and more, with all the things you've achieved and the person that you are. Believe me this, I've always felt like there'll be something for me to subtly learn whenever we've talked over the last couple of years, even if that was extremely rare. I also remember your first NSO days when you didn't want to be there at all, having no clue about basketball xD I'd love to stay in touch! :)
It was lovely to get to know you Mudita! :) One of the best memories I have with you is of the summer you had decided to give badminton a shot and Edwin sir just wouldn't tire of his fitness schedules. All the best at NRI, I'll bet you'll do fantastic there! Keep in touch! :)
It was an awesome experience for me to work with you. Hospi was a lot of fun xD Tum teeno satyam shivam sundaram agar final year mai aur milte toh sahi rehta :P Have a blast going ahead man. Anytime you need me, bas ek message daal dena. Love, K
Extremely senti, responsible and such a frank guy you are brother! I have huge respect for the way you managed to turn the Tennis team into a family. All the best for your chosen career path. Bada aadmi banke bhul mat jaana :) Love, K
Itna kyu tang karna hota hai tujhe meko, like maine bas treats dene mai hi toh kanjoosi ki hogi kabhi :P I've kept my promise made to you at the start of this final year. Bas wo placements ke din thoda charade karna padta hai just to let everyone else feel that the process is fair. Lol. You're incredibly sweet. I am infi jealous of the sheer volume of wonderful friends that you have. Hamesha pareshaan karti rehna, maza aata hai xD Love, K
You have a lovely knack of getting along with people, man. I adore that! You've been so sweet to me all these past years. I know you've had quite a few bumps in the road and even though you must have felt terrible a lot of those times but you never let it carry along with you, you've enjoyed everything you've been part of. That makes me respect you a lot man. Gossip and happening updates ka mera quota bharte rehna xD Love, K
Rathi sir aapse dosti karke bahut hi maza aaya. Case group was super fun! Party utni reh gayi hai, uska kuch intazaam karte hai! Ace your career and wish you the best in life man! Love, K
Our case group was so fun man. I remember at least 4-5 times we met all seriously, didn't do any cases but just laughed our asses off over all the "hypothetical scenarios". I also remember you being the most irregular attendee at my basketball SSoS :P Let's keep in touch man, our case group party is pending too. See you around. Love, K
Basketball has been so much fun with you Viru, be it insti teams or IBP Cavs. I know I pestered you a lot for coming to practice in the 1st year, which you didn't :p but you took off from your 2nd year despite the way you were shouted at by almost all the seniors. You took it in stride and grew a lot as a player and for that I respect you brother! Best of luck going ahead Viru, stay in touch :) Love, K
Rucha, tujhyashich fakta mala neet Marathit bolta yeta baba. Baaki saglyansobat ardhavat marathi bollyasarkha vatta, Punyache nahi na lok :P Tu khup god ahes, khup spashta vagtes ani mala khup avadtes Rucha! Aavhan madhye majja aali mala khup. Tula itka chikatini kaam karta baghun mala khup utsah yaycha :D Kadhi hi tula majhyashi bolavasa vatla tar ajibat sankoch karu nakos :D Khup Prem! :)
It was really great getting to know you through Aavhan. I wish I'd kept in touch with you more in the final year. All the best for the future and let's keep in touch now on :) Love, K
Enthu kam na hone dena bhai life mai. You're a gem. I've really enjoyed getting to know you. Keep in touch man! :D
I've known you to be the one of the best CLs there ever was. Itna groundwork kabhi kisi CL ne pehle nahi kiya and you were so involved with all the teams in their practices. You're also very sweet, it was great to work with you in Aavhan! Let's keep in touch? Love, K
You brothers are awesome yaa! I know you both have loads of secret enthu for things :D It was wonderful working with you in Aavhan. You had the best work ethics among everyone! I'd love to keep in touch. Love, K
Machata hai bhai! _/\_ Tere jaisa resourceful and confident banda shayad hi koi ho. Sports mai hi rehta, kya rakha tha MI mai? :P Bhul mat jaana yaar!
You are beautiful Patel xD Favouritest junior ever! :*
I was genuinely surprised at how fun it was working with you and getting to know your crazy MC Range personality. I remember you first coming to me for groundwork and you were so shy and nervous then. But then I got to see a completely bakchod, infinitely passionate and duniyabharka panchayati and poltu person! Love you man. Stay in touch! Love, K
I think we're both a lot similar, just that you're the more fun person hands down. That's why I think we'll always get along well. You're super super dependable. I've demanded your help countless times and you've always got through. Working with you was so much fun. I remember saying in the meet aaj maza nahi aa raha, Viraj beemar hoke nahi chalega. Kisi ka mere pe hak ho toh wo tera hai bhai hamesha, bas treats nhp. :P Lots of love, K
You're a really sweet guy man! Your Hindi is really funny xD It was great to get to know you through Aavhan. All the best at IIM! :D
It's been wonderful to get to know you man and see you grow immensely over the years. Didn't I assure you Aavhan hospi would be fun? :D All the very best for the future brother. Keep in touch! Love, K
You're such a sweet person, Nithin yaaar! So polite and so easy to talk to. I had no idea who you were before our case group but even then you helped me with everything I asked you for and I can't thank you enough for it. I'm sure we'll stay friends going ahead. You only have to drop a message whenever you need me. Love, K
