Maharashtra: Suryakant President, Sourav Gen Sec and Reethika Treasurer

Dear IIMCians,

IIMC Alumni Association Maharashtra Chapter's inception meeting was held at the famous El Café, near Dadar station in central Mumbai on October 27. The meeting was attended by 10 IIMCians, which decided on the inception and development of the Alumni Association in this Western State of India.

We discovered the affinity for the institution, passion for our professions and dreams in our eyes. After a two-hour meeting inside this quaint café, which is a popular joint for many politicians, journalists and corporates, we decided on the first formal team for the chapter.
