Here in IIT kharagpur there is a way for each of your extra academic talents to grow whether you talk about social and cultural activities or you talk about various sports. Professors are pretty nice which are ready to help you with your course content as well as in getting deep knowledge of other areas. Infrastructure is great with a lot more constructions still going. There are demerits too. No city life. Outside campus far below the average in terms of development. The problem of eating the Godly mess food(thank God there canteens in the campus). In short nice place to stretch your wings and take a ride into the world.
