I told him that it was like aliens. Like flying saucers. Like Star Wars. Like Transformers. But no matter what analogy I made, the little boy standing in front of me could not grasp the concept of science fiction.“Does that mean you can’t shrink this?” The little boy revealed a small, green HotWheels car from his pocket. “Mrs. Nathan can shrink her bus so small it swims in your blood, and you guys can’t shrink this? This car is way too big for my ants to drive!” He stared at me with sincere and confused eyes, and it pained me, knowing that I would be the source of this young boy’s disillusionment. I knelt down to meet him at eye level. “I’m sorry dude, but the Magic School Bus is science fiction,” I responded. “It’s science fiction. It isn’t real life.”Of all of my moments working as a salesman at Geppetto’s, a local toy store, this one was both the most memorable and most significant to my life. While the l…

STUDENT EXCHANGE PROGRAM ARCHIVESIn philosophy, empiricism is a theory that states knowledge comes primarily from experience. And to experience the richness of a diverse country, one must eat the food they eat, wear the clothes they wear and dance to the tunes they dance to.


Indians and French are similar on many grounds. The one worth mentioning is that we’re both big on gastronomy. In India, it’s all about variety — of dishes, of spices, of regional specialties, of elaborate platters a.k.a. thalis. In France, it’s all about pairing the right foods — wine and cheese, wine and main course, main course and sauce, liquor and dessert. With the result that we spend considerable amounts of time in the kitchen and at the table. And yes, guilty as charged, during lunch breaks at work/otherwise.



IMI Bhubaneswar, home to students from a mélange of cultural diversity, hosted a student exchange program in collaboration with Rennes School of Business, France. It was a three month exchange program w…

NOSTALGIA -Vibhor Agarwal
The petrichor of the first rain used to sweep me up from my window and I would continuously watch the droplets hitting my window race down to the bottom. Those were the usual evenings when I was a kid. Back then the noons didn’t bore me to and the evenings weren’t tiring enough. Those were the days where the hardest decision was whether we want to watch Duck tales or Aladdin, I could have stay all day in front of TV, watching cartoons and no one would disturb me, that was the best summer I could have imagined.
Then we grew up and complicate our lives to enter the system of society. We educate ourselves, gets into social circles, tries to form relationship other than the blood ones and eventually make our lives complicated and as a matter of fact, spend most of the time trying to defend the walls which we create to protect ourselves and others.
But sometimes it is better to break the walls and make amends to life. No matter how great your life was, it is not g…

Are we free?-Vibhor Agarwal


The quintessential question which a democracy or any political setup asks is of freedom. Freedom of choice, of expression and of behaving whatever the way we want to be.Often we find ourselves asking the same question that are we free?
We are all bound by chains, chains which we willingly or unwillingly wear that keeps us from being free. The chains of society, of family, or the rules imposed by government all bound us from moving around. But sometimes we are also limited by our own mental capacity.
Human brain is a magnificent machine which can find solution to any problem it faces and I am pretty sure we can find ways to freedom in different ways. But we somehow don’t seek freedom like we seek security or love.
The reason might be that we don’t value the freedom as much as we value the chains in our lives. In our daily lives we happily trade our freedom in exchange of our personal gains.But before trading such an important commodity we must define freedom.
