life…at ISB…

With 4000 points in everyone’s kitty…to be distributed over the 4 terms…people displayed fabulous levels of game theory concepts. Here are a few of them: If you bid at 800 for a […]

after much deliberation i decided to showcase one of the best works that has come out from the camera. needless to say the photographer’s talent in this case is negligible. its the subject that makes the entire art come out prettier than it ever was. she is R… and this is my world…your eyes… ~a
