2.The Mindblowing VIVA
Viva is a long standing tradition of XIMB which functions as an ice breaking session between seniors and juniors masqueraded as ragging. It goes on for a week and culminates into an inter block competition and finally into an awesome party where the badass seniors transform into BBFSs, bonding with juniors over food, music and some other stuff that requires no mention. The week long torture followed by a throat shattering competition and the utter relief at dicovering that it was actually an act, literally blows off every XIMBian's mind.
From ice breaking to disseminating discipline to committee launches to grievance handlings, XIMB batch meets are infamous for being untimely in at least one of the old or new campus. With pajamas and drooping eyes, as juniors roll into the venue, they get a reality check of being in a B school. Punctuality, smart casuals and sleeplessness becomes a must to survive the wrath of the Student Executive Council.
4.The fear Of SEC

With his persona the general secretary instills a guilty conscience in each one for any wrong doing they would have committed in college.

However on a serious note, the efficiency with which they work and the consideration shown in handling student issues makes each XIMBian respect them in their hearts.

But on second thoughts, it is healthier than junk food and this gives us the courage to carry on with it.
6.Respite Of X-CAFE
Not only giving a competition but overbouling the mess, is X-caf�. Nestled in a corner, this haven gives a relief to every starved XIMBian , offering a variety of food options. It not only satiates the taste buds but provides a hanout for facchas to bond, and college couples to spend some lovely moments. It also caters to the basic needs with things of daily use. The latter is a life saver for students of the jungle campus. (For those of you who do not know, new campus is situated in the middle of a jungle).
7.The Sleepy Conclaves
Conclaves, the most essential event of XIMB are a road to recruitments, with eminent dignitaries from the corporate world sharing their insights. However to sit focused in a conclave for a pretty 5-6 hours is no cake walk. Struggling faces and drooping eyes can be seen all around. Moreover the fear of being clicked by the photographers and shown the projector at the end of the conclave is shared by every XIMBian.
8.Why Do We Party In XIMB? 'JUST LIKE THAT!!'
A party that is an indispensible part of the XIMB culture is JLT(Just Like That). Awesome music and free alcohol are its main highlights.

They may miss a batchmeet but JLT reports full attendance, for missing a batchmeet just incurs a fine. But if you miss JLT , you miss a night long ecstasy!
9.The Awesome 'EXPRESSIONS'
Expressions the biggest annual fest of XIMB, is a place to be. With a flavor of several things going around, it?s a dish that every XIMBian has the privilege of savouring.

The fear of Father who looks after the enforcement of discipline in XIMB and mitigation measures involved in avoiding his wrath is a common experience of every XIMB.
POINT THAT DESERVES SPECIAL MENTION- THE PRIDE OF BEING AN XIMBian FOREVER
