Today, as director of Jodhpur's Aravali Institute of Management, with years of high-level stints at top-drawer companies behind him, Arya looks back at that one-room home with fondness and pride. Arya joined IIT Delhi in 1976 and IIM Ahmedabad in 1981. The value provided by these institutes has helped him soar above that first home in Abu Road, a small town in Rajasthan's Sirohi district.

Arya is thankful to ncert, whose scholarship took care of course fees at IIT, and forever indebted to a brother who left studies midway to add to the family income and finance the boarding part. His IIM stay was financed by a loan from the State Bank of India, which he repaid within three years of starting his working career. What he is today, he says, he owes it all to the IIT-IIM combination. That gratitude has bred a fierce loyalty to the institutes whose full blast can be felt at even a passing mention of the surname Joshi.
