What began as carefree get-togethers for auditions, long practices, and competition, ended as one of the better experiences ! Aagman for the batch SS/ 2010-12 was conducted on 26th July 2010 at Kamani Auditorium. The journey  of aagman preperations was almost for a month. It seemed no less than a scene fresh out of a bollywood movie. There was action, drama, comedy (very sad one at that ), dance, music, forgetfull fights, fresh couples (Err… Best friends) and a lot more.

After the traditional lighting of the lamp by Prof  A. Sandeep (Dean, All India, IIPM) the night proceeded with an enthralling performance by the IIPM band, comprising of Samuel David Dennis and Gurusharan Randhawa.

IIPM choreography teams set the stage ablaze as they performed on the latest chartbusters. There was a live bull fight, beautifully depicted in the form of a choreography act presented by Nishita Mahajan and Allen Robertson.  Students from IIPM Noida went the balle balle way and the crowd cheered on.  Simranjeet singh and Akhilesh Rana got all the applause as they performed their comic acts to whet the crowds appetite.

Then came the most awaited event for the evening. The fashion show! This year, the fashion police at IIPM went beyond the usual as they took us to the streets of Chicago where men paid the price of disloyalty , took us to the glitz and glamour of bollywood and had us rejoice in a FIFA carnival.

Aagman 2010 had all the ingredients of a perfect show.  Flawless emcees, terrific performances viewed by a wonderful audience.

Mr. Singh highlighted that most good advertisements tell a story and the ads which become memorable are the ones with a simple and engaging truth in them. “Every ad is an opportunity for the consumer to marry the brand”

With the marketing bunch in the audience aware of the strong nexus that marketers and advertisers have, questions on media and advertising flowed freely.

Having got a taste of the media sector from a person of Mr. Singh’s stature the students were left longing for more.

The Convocation saw 55 students being awarded their respective graduating diplomas. It was an opportunity for all to reunite and relive the memorable moments of the most exciting and crucial two years of the students' lives that they had spent at IIPM. To inaugurate the event, IIPM students performed Vandana Dance-a prayer to the  Lord.

Dr. J J Irani, Director - Tata Sons graced the occasion as the Chief Guest. Among other Guests of Honour’s were Mr. P. R. Joshi, President Group-HR & CC, Zydus Cadila, Mr. Pankaj Sachdeva, Managing Director, Kalpataru Power Transmissions Limited, Mr. Kaushal Mehta, Founder and Chairman, Motif Inc., Mr. Mukesh Bhandari, Chairman, Electrotherm India Limited, Mr. Hitesh Buddhbatti, DGM & Branch Head, Times Group and Dr. Binod Agrawal, Vice Chancellor, Himigiri Nabh Vishwavidhyalaya.

The Academic Gold and Silver medals were awarded to students who ranked first and second consistently throughout the two years of the program by Prof. A. Sandeep, Dean-IIPM, All India.

Speaking on the occasion, Dr. J.J. Irani, called upon the graduating students to be responsible to the one billion Indians rather than only to the shareholders of the companies they work for. He stressed on the fact that businesses need to cater to overall community and successful businesses are created by taking the communities they are surrounded by with them. Dr. Irani stressed that India should become a 'Happy Nation' rather than an 'Economic Superpower.' This he felt can be achieved by ensuring corporates and their executives follow ethical practices. He demanded that the new generation pay heed to values and ensure that these values are passed on wherever they go.

The diplomas were conferred upon the students of IIPM Ahmedabad by the various Guests of Honor. The alumni then gathered on stage for the cap-throwing ceremony. It was a very proud moment for the parents when all the students joined for the cap throwing ceremony after receiving their testimonials.

IIPM has never let this opportunity shun away and has given its students the right platform to explore and boost their abilities keeping pace with this dynamic business world and help them “Dare to think beyond.”
