Srinivasa Addepalli

For eight years in the momentous nineties, Srinivasa Addepalli lived in hostels with the four-year stint in REC (now NIT), Surat being the most memorable. At that time, he wrote Hostelitis, a column on hostel life for the youth magazine, JAM. Twenty-five years later, this book builds on those stories that were written as they happened. After graduating from IIM Ahmedabad, Srini went on to the corporate world of strategy and M&A. Later, he became a visiting faculty at various MBA and engineering colleges; perhaps with a desire to experience hostel life again. Srini lives in Mumbai and runs an ed-tech start-up in professional education and upskilling.
