Tough Times for L

The last year or so hasn't been a great one for people associated with IIM Lucknow. It started off with the bizarre suicide of Handsdah. Then came the butal murder of Prof Singh, a retired IIML professor. Nimish Adani went through hell at the hands of the Railway Police at the Bangalore railway station. There was a serious case of food poisoning in the IIML campus, with dozens of students running high temperature and being admitted to the hospital. Amitinder Singh, from the batch of 2003, passed away in a road accident. And now Manju.

In each and every event the alumni of IIML, and indeed the entire IIML community have responded admirably and helped out in every way possible. Pardon the cliche, but when the going gets tough, the tough get going.

I am proud to be an L-ite.
