Winner of Conserve India’s Wallet – Shantesh Verma, PGP, IIM- Ahmedabad
Shantesh Verma, a PGP Student at IIM- Ahmedabad is a TV Series Buff, a hard core foodie and an explorer who loves to try new things all the time
His Favourite Mentor – Prof. Dhiman Bhadra, Associate Professor, IIM – Ahmedabad
Prof. Bhadra is not just a teacher, he’s a mentor, a friend and a role model. I have never experienced such an awesome session by a teacher ever in my life. He makes even the boring topics interesting by his sheer wit and sense of humor. I think it is the best pedagogy a teacher can follow. He knows how students think, he knows what goes on in our heads when he is teaching, he is practically one of us. This is what distinguishes him from any other teacher. Learning is far more effective if the students feel connected to the teacher. It was really an awesome experience to have Prof. Dhiman Bhadra as our Statistics teacher because otherwise I would never have felt confident in a dreaded subject like statistics. It is really an honor to be his student. Thank you.

His Favourite Mentor – Jyotirmayee Sarangi, Project Manager, TCS
Best thing about my mentor is her positive attitude and the ability to encourage team members to believe in their abilities and rise above their insecurities to outperform. She has an unique way of giving feedback which is not only constructive but also enthuses confidence in the individual. I personally like these qualities of hers – “ Her willingness to learn , accept mistakes and come up with solutions rather than covering up the mistakes, building a great team atmosphere”. .Everyone in team will agree with this phrase – “If in doubt , speak to her , and she will definitely help u find a solution rather than just suggesting a way out.”
Winner of Conserve India’s Zip Around Wallet – Sarthak Srivastava, NIT – Jaipur
His Favourite Mentor – Neeraj Srivastava
Sir used to tell us- “The marks you gain make the world know you. The knowledge you acquire make you know yourself. Both of these are equally important”. He never preached any misguiding principles that the present generations tend to believe these, like marks are not important and such. Still, he made sure that his students were as good human beings as they were academic beings. The best thing about him is that he is a believer and he chooses to believe in the goodness of things. I remember when he told us one day in a rather emotional state that the most important things to earn in life are blessings. “When someone blesses you to be happy in life, at some point in your journey it pays. And when that happens, you witness miracles in your life”.
Sir, I know we could not be in touch for long after I left town, but I also know that your blessings will always accompany me. Your pupil is waiting for a miracle in life and whenever it happens, he will make sure he visits the town once again to pay obeisance to the greatest teacher in his life
