Life's Bookmark !

How life changes, suddenly from a sluggish black and white movie to one of zipping fast ones where the music is just blaring in your ears. And the irony is that you always want to be on the other side…definitely grass is always greener on the other side. It’s all momentary; the only thing that is constant is change. Life everyday is a new frontier. It was time to start from the scratch again and as I was looking for my maiden assignment AIM Quest happened to me.

This story may seem common to most of the people. People even have more or less the same chapter in their life. No words to describe, I actually can’t pour all my emotions this way...this is amazing...I don’t have words to let u know how it made me feel...I’m touched. In life, we hardly take opportunity to thank people who have really made a difference and are the unsung heroes of our life. Small things usually go unnoticed but they make great sense and they are the one who make life so easy and cheerful.

I felt elated when my name was called on the stage and I was flooded with appreciation and gifts. Thank you all at Assam Institute of Management (AIM). Thank you for believing in my abilities, having patience with me and mostly for making things so comfortable for me. I never felt that I was not a student of the institute.

The sound of claps will always linger on my mind. And will be something I’ll go back every time I’m down or lack in zeal. No matter, even if someday I may reach the zenith of supremacy AIM, AIM Quest 2009, its memories and all the people at AIM will always remain special for me. I will always specially bookmark this chapter of my life. Thank you for making my maiden solo assignment so unforgettable.

Thank you Himadri, for asking me if I can help and introducing me to AIM. Thank you Shruti, for all the creative inputs, thank you (in alphabetical order) Anakshi, Bidisha, Jayasweta, Lakshya, Manab, Mrinal, Neel, Rahul, Ritu, Shraddha, Smita, Sukanya, Zubeen, thank you the 14th batch of AIM, you people simply rock !!!

"A young graphic designer..listening to the seductive call of creativity and visual communication, volunteering his services to some like minded energetic people"..this is how I would describe your associationship with AIM and AIMQUEST!..You did a wonderful job!..I also know some people made the unfair use of your talents during their IT3 web designing project...I would blame it on them...but you are always wonderful Arpan!

everyday we do a lot of things.... meet a lot of people.... bt vry few of them leave a mark in our memory which we always cherish....

AIMQUEST was one such event.... n u Arpan... u r one of such spcl persons.... ur dis particular post in d blog has brought sm beautiful memories....

AIMQUEST was like a flower show for which a lot of people worked.... rather toiled in d backyard garden... we'r happy... bt whn sm1 expresses how he felt whn d actual show was taking place it gvs us a new perspective abt d whole event....

tht flower show has now become more spcl.... as we hv come to knw tht it has left its fragrance in oders mind too....

here by using d word 'other' i dnt want to separate u from d students of AIM.... we nvr felt tht u wr nt a student of AIM.... in fact thts d beauty of ur association with us....

u wl always b spcl Arpan... hope u achieve whtevr u deserve in life.... al d vry best...
