IIMB campus

IIMB campus is a 100-acre oasis located in south Bangalore. It is quite far from the city centre. Good, I'm getting used to bikes! Given the traffic, they are much faster than cars as they can simply zigzag between cars, autorikshaws, cows, dogs, people, etc.

The campus offers accommodation to all students, a library and computing facilities (the Internet connection is quite slow which would explain why I didn’t publish my posts earlier).

In addition to the mess providing food three times a day, snacks are available 24/7 in a couple of shops located on the campus. During the night, you might find the vendor sleeping near the shop and it is common practice to wake him up if necessary.

There is also an ATM as well as a travel agency (meaning a guy with a phone!).

Update: IIMB campus was the site for the shooting of the Bollywood film “3 Idiots” directed by Rajkumar Hirani.

Elise, attending classes??? ;) Difficult to believe… If the wages are so low, couldn’t you hire someone to attend the classes for you?
