Rajni Celestina Kispotta has always had a strong creative side to whatever she has done in life. Right through school in the steel city, Jamshedpur, and college at St. Xavier’s Ranchi – where she did her B.Com – Rajni kept on amassing trophies and medals for pot painting, glass painting, gardening, etc. In fact, as a college girl, she turned her flair for candle making into a small business that took care of expenses.
“It was at Jaipuria Indore that I finally found a larger-than-life platform to hone my skills in different areas. I’ve either been a part of promoting or coordinating mega-events like the ‘National Business Olympiad’, ‘Encore – 2’, ‘Budget Analysis’, ‘Milan’. I’ve not let go of a single opportunity to represent my college; be it for social causes like the ‘1Rupees Abhiyaan’ organised by ‘93.5 MY FM’, ‘SHE Marathon – save a girl child’ organised by AIESEC, or being a teacher at the evening school initiative ‘Ugam – enlightening the path’, at Jaipuria Indore.”
With her exceptional communication talents, Rajni is one of the hotshot campus journalists as a part of the ‘Media Relation Club’, which takes care of branding and media activities for Jaipuria Indore.
“Jaipuria Indore was not at all a difficult choice for me to make. The fully residential Indore branch is new, but Jaipuria brand is well established. The unique pedagogical tools and a fully digitised campus is a great boon. Especially our first-of-its-kind-in-Asia digital campus, which has pulled many corporate houses to us during summer placements.”
Rajni believes this helped her land a plum summer internship at Tata Cummins Ltd., Jamshedpur. Since she is specialising in Human Resource and Marketing, she gained hand-on experience through a project on ‘Process Mapping of Attendance and Payroll System’. Of course, with a girl as active as Rajni, this was not enough, so she’s found more avenues at Jaipuria Indore. ‘Social Media’, ‘Tata First Dot powered by NEN’ and ‘Vocabulary ka Dhaba’ are just some of the workshops she has attended to upgrade her skills.
“Jaipurians have a totally different life after classes. We enjoy the teamwork assignments – especially the last minute rush to submit one’s assignment before the 11:59 pm deadline. We love having dinner and breakfast together on the long tables in our Mess, fighting for a papad! Watching movies after completing the assignment is a great stress-buster – so what if our movies start at 12:30 pm,” says Rajni with a twinkle in her eye.
Rajni Kispotta feels that the faculty at Jaipuria Indore is easily the finest she has come across. This is not simply because of their immense academic and industrial experience, but because of their humane response to the students’ concerns.
“As a matter of fact, our faculty is far more concerned about our placements that we ourselves are. They are always on the ball, taking us through regular mock interviews, GDs, quizes and aptitude tests. That is how I was able to effectively crack the telephonic interview with representatives of Tata Cummins Ltd., Jamshedpur.”
With the first placement season at Jaipuria Indore around the corner, Rajni is surprisingly assured about the prospects. She is confident that with the kind of interest shown by industry towards Jaipuria Indore, her course will register a 100% placement.
