IIM Indore’s Alum Anupam Dasgupta’s Novel Released
Adding another feather in the hat of achievements of the Institute, Anupam Dasgupta, (PGP 2003-2005) released his second novel—‘From Yesterday’ in March 2017. The novel is a romance fiction that revolves around the story of Anita, Adi and Christina set in the cities of Chennai and Chicago. The story evokes feelings of true love and sacrifice interlaced with the pangs of falling and separating in love. The storyline is meshed with interesting tit-bits involving tarot cards, Chicago’s picturesque locales and Latin Dancing.
The inception of the book traces back to his trip to Chicago in early 2014. ‘Some memorable interactions during Latin social dancing at Green Dolphin, a club in Chicago that played Salsa music, along with some splendid moments spent at the Bean, Willis Tower, Lake Michigan and other scenic locales, gave birth to the plot’, says Anupam. The other half of the story is a mix of fiction and reality, with some personal experiences from the city of Chennai thrown in.
Anupam’s first novel titled ‘Salsa’ was released in 2013. The book was subsequently re-published in 2014 as ‘Salsa-World is a Small Place’ and appeared in leading book fairs across the country, with a good fan following and readership, particularly in the states of Madhya Pradesh, Gujrat, West Bengal, Orissa and Tamil Nadu.
‘I enjoy writing and particularly relish the feeling when I get involved with the characters’ lives, emotions, hopes and unfulfilled wishes’, said Anupam. IIM Indore congratulates Anupam for this achievement.

IIM Indore’s Alum Venture ‘elth.ai’ Connects Patients to Doctors 24*7
A similar product is been launched by HCFAB namely ‘praktice.ai’ which generates leads to hospitals and doctors for online consultation and in-hospital appointments. It also enables doctors and hospitals to manage their appointments and other operations through Natural language commands. In essence they’re bringing the next era of artificial intelligence enabled applications to Health Care, given its dire need due to abysmal doctor/staff to patient ratio in India.
Discussing about how the idea originated, Srinath says—‘Dr. Akhila Srinath, Co-Founder, elth.ai and I used to discuss every day about her experiences in the clinic with different patients and the necessity for access to an omniscient person who can elaborate on what doctors explain in the limited time in the clinic. Then came the idea of training an Artificial Intelligence system which can answer even a million people at once with the training imparted by scores of doctors.’
IIM Indore gives its best wishes to Srinath and his new venture.
