Poulami Sarkar hails from West Bengal, and even before taking admission in SCMS COCHIN, she knew she will be exposed to a totally different culture in Kerala. She was willing to know and learn about different cultures, and she is happy she took the right decision. “I have got an opportunity to study with students of different states. I am really exposed to their lifestyle, festivals, and culture. This is really enriching experience and now I am well adjusted to hostel life here. The credit goes to ever cooperating faculty and my new friends here, who are always ready to extend a helping hand,” says Poulami.
There are many things I miss about my home state and sometimes “I get home sick”, says Poulami. “I long for my mother’s cooked food and miss my parents a lot. “But, this is normal, and we have to go through all this when we wish to achieve something big in life,” opines Poulami. “I have learned to manage stress and now I use time efficiently. This trait will help me in every sphere of life,” adds Poulami.
