Pradipta Das || ISB Hyderabad PGP 2014-15
Two years back, when I was struggling with my CAT preparations, I heard of 'Backspace Communication' from one of my friends. He told me that an IIM-A alumnus had started an institute for preparation of verbal ability and communication skills. Initially, I did not have much expectation and just decided to go and meet Partha. I still thank my stars that I really took that decision. The place was not at all as any traditional coaching center, and after talking to Partha, I realized that I have come to the right place and enrolled for 'Verbospace' - a programme for verbal ability. I do not hesitate to say that I have seen very few persons as industrious and dedicated as Partha. His life revolves around students and he leaves no stones unturned to help them. His unique teaching style and creativity leave an indelible mark on all his students, and I am no exception. Backspace is not about percentiles. It is about a teaching for life. He grooms the entire personality of his students and cares for each one of them. Unfortunately, I could not do very well in CAT '12 and he inspired me to take GMAT. He has been a constant guiding force, and motivated me throughout and helped me get a good score. However, my MBA entrance story was not yet over for me. I want to stay in India and hence focused mainly on Indian School of Business. I totally relied on Partha's guidance and applied to ISB. Partha used to address all my doubts even in the dead of night. I remember that I used to go to Backspace every day for mock interviews. He prepared me for all possible situations and finally I could crack the interview at ISB.
I do not yet know what transformation I will go through at Indian School of Business, but I am sure I will treasure the transformation I have had here at Backspace for my entire life.
