“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”
― Mahatma Gandhi

AvantGarde took a huge leap forward last month by venturing into a complete new look and design along with the launch of the new eBook format. We take this opportunity to convey our heartfelt thanks to all our readers for all the accolades you have showered on us for this change and for recognizing our efforts. We promise to keep exceeding your expectations!

After a successful advent into this revamped design and new format, AvantGardecontinues to carry forward the legacy of MBA @ IIT Kanpur, with a new issue, full of articles on current and trending topics as well as on some key corporate affairs.

As the Rupee continues to break all records and hit an all-time low (65.94 against 1 USDat time of publication of this issue), usual discussions on the fall in the rupee bring up macro-economic matters such as slowing economic growth, corporate earnings and market volatility. However, the fall of Rupee burns a hole not only in Dalal Street, but also in the common man’s pocket.

Hence, we are dedicating this issue to the burning topic of “Falling Rupee” with Sayantan Ghosh and Chandrajit Mitra of MBA 2013-15 batch sharing their views on it, the causes of this fall and some counter-remedies.

Sunny Goyalof MBA 2012-14 batch shares his views and opinions on the NSEL (National Spot Exchange Limited) settlement crisis and talks about Spot markets and how people continue to exploit the existing loopholes in our financial system.

Piyush Sharmaof MBA 2013-15 batch shares his opinions on the Retail Sector and the Back End Supply Chain process. He takes us back to the early 90s when Retail Sector started to boom and also throws light on the present scenario.

Varun Sharma of MBA 2013-15 batch talks about an interesting topic of the advantages of BJP in the Lok Sabha elections 2014 as he analyses various factors and highlights how BJP might succeed if it continues to do the ground work of reaching out to the youth.

Finally, Arpan Rani of MBA 2012-14 batch gives us a glimpse of the first ever Industry-Alumni meet-cum-Symposium in Industrial Management Engineering (IME) department, IIT Kanpur, held on 6th and 7th April, 2013, with the theme – “Glory of techno-management: Success, challenges and road map for future.”

This issue continues to test and hone your knowledge of current Business Affairs with the Quizomania section, bundled with a complete new set of business related questions.
