Reserve Bank of India (RBI) governor Raghuran Rajan and an alumni of Indian Institute of Technology(IIT), Delhi on Saturday recalled his college days and admitted that he was not a good actor in his dramatics class.

“Everyone did something ranging from photography to publishing, of course we all aspire to join dramatics where we get to spend long hours with members of opposite sex. Unfortunately, I was not good at acting, so I had to look elsewhere for self actualization. But there were enough places to look,” Rajan said while addressing students of IIT here on their convocation ceremony.

“Students politics was vibrant, strategizing and back stabbing. It was an intellectual pastime, however, without violence and corruption that happens elsewhere in our country. You had to convince the small intellectual electorate and to figure out how to get votes we all learnt the art of persuasion,” he added.
