The Training and Placement Cell of INLEAD organised an industrial visit to Kingdom of Dreams on June 28th, 2012 for EMPR students of June’12 batch. The students were accompanied by the one of the faculty at INLEAD, Mr. Sandeep Bhandari. The enticing and exquisite Kingdom of Dreams, in the heart of the “Millennium city” brings to life a vivid picture of India's art, culture, heritage, craft, cuisine and live art...all with the technological wizardry of today.On behalf of Kingdom of Dreams, a warm welcome was accorded by Mr. Rishabh Kumar, Floor Manager and Mr. Raj Kumar, Assistant Manager, Human Resource.
It was the first industry visit for the batch ever since the commencement of the session from 16th June to give us a hands on experience as to what goes behind the working of one of the biggest entertainment extravaganza. The students were briefed about the sprawling setup at Kingdom of Dreams which included both Nautanki Mahal and Culture Gully. An elaborate culture, arts, craft and food boulevard, from visiting the backwaters of Kerala, savoring the taste buds in the royal nawab style in Lucknow, the statuesque beaches in Goa, an insight of the royal splendor of a Rajasthani Palace, the Mumbai local that rules the lives of major chunk of Mumbai, the live kitchens…..there’s so much you can look forward to at Culture Gully. In the Nautanki Mahal, the magic of Indian Cinema comes alive in a stunning, electrifying on-stage spectacle. It combines creativity and cutting edge technology to create an Entertainment Extravaganza which explodes our senses. The students had a glimpse of Jhumroo, an out and out musical comedy. Packed with 19 Bollywood retro songs, Jhumroo is a celebration of the spirit of Kishore Kumar, a legend who continues to charm the young and old alike. A brief visit to IIFA buzz café, a glamourous themed bollywood VIP lounge, added to the excitement.
The visit came to end with a lively interaction with Mr. Saurabh Kaushik, General Manager, Human Resource. He shared his experience at Kingdom of dreams and followed by a rapid fire round with students, asking questions as to what the students had learnt from the visit to Kingdom of Dreams. The students were also rewarded with gifts for the correct answers. The students had a great experience of learning at the hub of innovative and creative thinking.
