“3 years of learning, growing and making endless kodak moments” – that’s how I would sum up my college
This year in May, when I came Tinsukia, I visited college. I thought I would feel different. Strange. It was
nostalgic. We may have lived out of our homes for years, but when we are back, the joy of experiencing
familiar surroundings is extraordinary. That’s how it was for me, just as I am sure it must be for other alumni
as well. The feeling was beyond words – meeting your Professors, seeing and learning from them how far
the college has come, reliving the golden days.
Today as I sit back and reminisce the journey, I can only say that it has been truly awesome. I still remember
the first day I entered the college and the journey till farewell, the college has given me so much. It has
helped me grow in so many ways. It has shaped me into what I am today.
Being a student of such a prestigious institute by itself was a blessing. It has been an amazing and exciting
journey and would not have been easy without my Professors under whom I got a chance to learn and
grow. Thank you so much for all the support and encouragement that you have provided me. I was
fortunate to have you as my mentors. Duarah Sir, Samal Sir, Rakesh Sir, Mridul Sir, Pawan Sir, Sweety Ma’am
and Lipika Ma’am- the lessons that I learned from you all is not just helping me in my career but in
everything I do.
Those stepping stones, those building blocks have made me achieve success. I will forever be grateful to
my Professors, to my alma mater for helping me become so capable that I have surpassed the goals that I
had once set for myself.
After completing my graduation, I qualified chartered accountancy from the Institute of Chartered
Accountants of India. Thereafter, I started working with Tata Consultancy Services Ltd in Bangalore and
KPMG in Gurgaon. At present, I am working with KPMG in Dubai. Being part of one of world’s top 4
accounting firms, is a privilege in itself.
There’s one thing that I would like to tell all my juniors- those passed out or studying currently- we are
fortunate enough to be part of GSLGC and should grab every opportunity this institution has to offer. Please
don’t restrict yourself to Tinsukia/Assam. The world is awaiting for champs like you. Go and explore!
