It was my second attempt at CAT in 2013 and I did not do well with a meagre 94.48 OA. I did not match up to the expectations. But I decided that all was not lost. I came to know about Backspace from two of my friends. I did contemplate before joining Backspace but it has been a decision well taken. The day I joined, a form was given which had to be filled in. It had such questions which gave me hints that this was certainly going to be a special place. From the day the classes started, each weekend was what I waited for.

Partha Sir aka PPD is the soul of this temple of erudition. He always stressed on thinking different and taking the path less travelled. As the days progressed, I learnt a lot through various activities which were unique in their own manner. Personal attention was never a problem as I could contact PPD any time I felt. As days progressed, I was infused with enthusiasm, lateral thinking and confidence. I came to know myself better now as a result of all the maverick activities. What PPD asked in return was dedication and a smile on my face.

As the PI dates came closer, I attended more and more mock interviews. However, just days before NMIMS interview I fell ill and could not attend mock PIs. I felt low and called up Partha Sir and it was unbelievable how in 2 minutes how someone can inspire you to do well. I still remember him saying- You're my responsibility.

Don't worry. You'll do well, just take ample rest. Thanks to Backspace, I converted the coveted call some days later. Backspace has become a very important part of my life and will always be. You never know when your life changes when you meet the inspiration of your life. I owe my success to Sir who will always be the biggest source of inspiration for me.
