IIMB 1982-84 Batchmates- 2

Intro to Some More of my Batch (1982-84)

SARATH MOHAN (DIVER / YAMAGUCHI)

He was widely acclaimed on account of his regular habits. He slept when everyone else
attended classes, paid mess-bills for grub he didn't have and sat glued to the idiot box through endless Kannada programmes without understanding a word. His day begins when others' ends. During the two years, he took breakfast on ten occasions. His favourite pastimes are devastating Karate stunts in skits and O.R., the latter almost causing him to be 'misplaced' at the end of first year.

SWAMIMALAI SRINIVASAN RAMESH (SMOKE-SMOKE / SUPERSTAR / DUMS)

Whenever he was around, 'janta' panicked. His appearance signified invariably an exam, and sometimes two exams. A civil engineer by profession, he is extremely civil even when there are no exams.

T. M. RANGASWAMY (YOU KNOW)

He convinced us that we were all very religious folks. It's just a question of how broad a
definition you give to religion. If you start with the premise that all people are religious, the rest of the logic can be worked out very simply.

Defining statement- “Religion is the opium of the masses”

ANIL JAIN (HAN JIAN / BAPU / BANIYA)

He holds the dubious distinction of knocking the axe on his own foot (Apne Pairon Pe Kulhadi)- extending the Indian Eco. end-term to two hours from the previous one-hour and then cribbing about it. Attained fame as the Baniya who sold banyans (remember the red and yellow ones - dirty, dirty... the blue ones he kept for himself). "The only one to have extracted a treat from Gopal Pai" - Old Bhau Saying.

Defining Statement- “He isn’t particular how people treat him – just so long as they do.”

Like the defining statements - specially the one about how people treat him long as they do. Some background on their other names too please.
