Death of an email id...

Official IIFM email ids' of the batch 2006 were deactivated last week...

Though the process is repeated every year for the outgoing batch, eventhen, batch resisted the move a lot and wrote to whomever they can....

Reason....for two years xyz@iifm.ac.in was identity for 44 of us, and a symbol of proud too.
It gave a sense of belongingness and ownership with the institute.
The platform was a witness of endless mailwars, assignmnets sharings, announcements by CR/Faculty and what not...anything you wanted to share, put it to Group Mail.

I dont understand why institute cannot keep these email ids forever. I dont think cyberspace is too costly nowadays and even if it costs , i believe institute is very much capable of paying(we all know, how things work in the month of March)..

Hope They will think upon it...

Till then...Orkut hai na...
