Tuhin Sharma loves to initiate change and make things happen. It is perhaps for this reason that he was made the College Captain during his school days in Tagore Public School, Allahabad. Born and brought up in Allahabad, Tuhin did his B.Com from University of Allahabad before entering Jaipuria Institute of Management, Lucknow.
“I always see myself a little more than useless because I believe the more you know, the more you realise how much you don’t know. So there is always scope to learn. This makes me accept change faster and better.”
Tuhin is a multi-faceted and talented student. He is hard to beat in debates and discussions, simply because he is widely read, and displays excellent command over the English language. His abilities make him a unanimous choice as anchor for various events in Jaipuria Lucknow. Having displayed leadership qualities very early in life, Tuhin is a natural manager. His relaxation formula involves reading books on marketing and branding, autobiographies and works of writers like Jodi Picoult, Paulo Coelho and Harper Lee. He enjoys long rides on his bike, is more than a decent singer and likes to play basketball whenever he can. A fierce competitor, Tuhin has either participated in or organised competitions like the business quiz, business plan, and marketing & finance games on the Jaipuria, Lucknow campus.
“I am not what happened to me,” he says philosophically. “I am what I choose to become. I choose to learn from my mind and lead with heart. The curriculum and pedagogy at Jaipuria, Lucknow makes learning a special experience. The faculty members here don’t restrict themselves simply to imparting domain knowledge, but also give us insight into industry; that’s what makes learning easy. Jaipuria fulfills its motto of ‘Think, Learn, Imbibe, Innovate, Choose, and Lead’. Jaipuria doesn’t teach you how you can be better than others; it makes you better than yourself. The courses offered here are industry-oriented and focus on the holistic development of the students. The exceptional placements of Jaipuria Lucknow clearly indicate what Jaipuria does and how well it does it.”
Tuhin is an ideal member of the Alumni Committee of Jaipuria Lucknow, where he interacts with the alumni, many of whom are at prime posts in the corporate world. He is also a member of the Media Relations Club of the Lucknow campus, CTRL+N (Marketing Club) and the Finance Club. Tuhin was also on the organizing committee for Ojas (Annual Fest) and IIC (Annual Conference).
“I have noticed big positive changes in myself during this one year at Jaipuria Lucknow. I think the most memorable moments were when I won prizes in various events at Talaash, Ojas and other pan-India competitions that reached beyond Jaipuria Lucknow. I also loved it when I was announced Mr. Fresher from my batch.”
Tuhin reserves special praise for the faculty of Jaipuria Lucknow.
“People say that if you never expect anything, you will never be disappointed. I expected a lot from the Jaipuria Lucknow faculty… and I got more than I had expected. The Jaipuria Lucknow faculties are in great demand beyond the walls of Jaipuria – in MDPs, in seminars, at the IIMs, etc. Yet within the campus, they are simply our mentors. Their experience of the corporate world is not biased or restricted. It is almost as if they are referees, judging the corporate world. That is the kind of impactful neutral view they bring to our classrooms.”
Tuhin believes that Jaipuria Lucknow has given him just the right platform to learn, perform and grow. He is looking forward to making his alma mater proud in the near future.
