Anmol Aggarwal And Prateek Shukla’s View Of The Pink City, Jaipuria Institute of Management, Jaipur

In All, Jaipuria Jaipur, STUDENT Speaks by admin

Jaipuria Institute of Management, Jaipur has recently welcomed the 2012-14 batch of Post Graduate Diploma in Management (PGDM) students. On the 7th of July, 2012, these first-year students were taken on a trip around the landmarks of Jaipur, to help them understand the Pink City better. Anmol Agarwal and Prateek Shukla, both students of PGDM 2012-14, take us through their first tour of the city.

Prateek – I think the trip around Jaipur was really cool. What do you think?

Anmol – Awesome and unforgettable! I learned a lot of things, and enjoyed myself a lot. In fact, I woke up very early in the morning that day simply out of excitement. The first stop – the Kagazi Industry – made me realise that you don’t necessarily need crores to start a venture; it can be done with scrap as well.

Prateek – Very true. In fact, I had no idea about the process of paper-making. When I came to know that they make paper with old clothes and waste paper, it amazed me. I think this was the quickest way I could figure out the real idea behind the word ‘recycle’. As a management student, I feel very lucky that Jaipuria Jaipur started us out with this visit. I’ve got the message loud and clear that good entrepreneurship is all about a good idea, some managerial skills, innovation and the ability to take a calculated risk.

Anmol – How did you like Amer Fort? I found it absolutely fascinating!

Prateek – Same here. I could almost imagine the Rajput Kings treading across the fort walls. I think one look at the glorious fort was good enough to understand the ancient Rajputana culture. I could imagine how difficult it must’ve been for an attacking army to get past the moat and climb the wall to take control of Amer Fort.

Anmol – Absolutely. The amazing part was moving straightaway from Amer Fort to the huge Pink Square Mall; seemed like travelling in time from the 16th century to the 21st century. In fact, on the way to the Pink Square Mall, I was going blind with hunger! I was unable to see the beauty of Hawa Mahal or Jal Mahal clearly…

Prateek – I know. The way you rushed up to the food court at Pink Square Mall said it all! But I really liked Hawa Mahal and Jal Mahal. They were so different from Amer. The Queens must’ve really enjoyed staying surrounded by water. Of course, there was a military reason for this. The water body around the Jal Mahal acted as an obstacle.

Anmol – I really would like to know more about how the Jal Mahal was constructed. I’m sure I’ll get a lot of opportunities to do that in the two years at Jaipuria Institute of Management.

Prateek – Sure. I guess this was just the trailer. The Birla Mandir was a nice place to signoff for the day. It’s always great to start something new with the blessings of the Gods.
