This Is Kumar Mangalam Birla's Favourite IIT Bombay Campus Joke

Kumar Mangalam Birla (chairman of Aditya Birla Group) delivered the Convocation Address at IIT Bombay. The speech was interrupted by Mr Birla sharing his favorite IIT Bombay joke.

IIT Bombay alumni tell me many campus jokes. One of my favorites is this: Late at night, an apparently lost car driver asks a doctor student “Bahar jaaneka raasta?” (What’s the exit from this campus?) Pat replies, “Chaar semain bhiyahi raha ho (I have been looking for this for four years).”

“Clearly, all those who have graduated today had no difficulties in finding the exit gate )’,” (bahar jaaneka raasta) he said.

IIT Bombay hosted its 60th Convocation on Saturday. Mr Birla was the main guest.
