Hauz Khaz Village (referred as "The village" by the traditional Hauz Khazians as opposed to "HKV" by the noveau H-khazians) functions on the principle of creativity-through-chaos.
The Village's obscure-bordering on-outlandish named rooftop cafes,boutiques and bookshops (Kunzum,Boheme,Ziro,Dzokou,Yodakin to name a few) might not be pronounced by the 'chep' mallrat species.
"The village" attracts a 'cool' clientele seeking an alternative-culture identity.
Person B : No ya...HKV is the place to be.
All cool people who used to hangout at Khan market now chill in "The village".

This transformational chain of B-schools is what one calls a 'self-made' B-school
Self-ranking as "No.1 B-school in India",IIPM proclaims to 'Academically far superior' with "intellectually stimulating course content.(Check website http://www.iipm.edu/)
By persistently persuading B-school aspirants to "think beyond the IIMs' , IIPM has played a lifesaver's role in providing C.A.Tphobic students a First-aid managment course with the promise of getting good placement.
Arindam Chaudhuri,the dean of IIPM, has played a pivtol part in making IIPM what it is today.In fact, the life histories of the dean and the insititute are strinking similar.
While IIPM believes it is constantly setting new benchmarks in management education,Arindam is convinced he is setting new records in intellectual stimulation through his books,blogs and articles.
In fact,both have been fortunate to recieve huge exposure in the media.
'Dare to think beyond IIMs, dare to think beyond expecting classes being taken, dare to think beyond getting a job, dare to think beyond getting a degree... Pay the money, stay for two years and take home an Arindham Chaudry signed certificate.Who says IIPM is a fraud institute?'
