His father is a lawyer who practices at the Murshidabad District Court while his mother is a homemaker. His elder brother is a high school teacher in English. Their combined family income is Rs. 20,000 per month.

Arindam’s greatest role models are his father and  Swami Vivekananda . His interests include reading fiction, gardening, etc. Arindam stumbled upon IDIA through the advertisement for INAT on the CLAT website.  IDIA ensured that all the IMS study materials were supplied free of cost to him and helped him through his entire preparation by providing constant moral support and mentoring. Having acquired All India Rank 343 in the CLAT, Arindam secured admission in National Law Institute University, Bhopal.

He has been recruited in 2015 from campus by Khaitan&Co., one of the top law firms in the country. He says:

“4th April, 2015 was a memorable day in my life. On this day I secured a job at Khaitan & Co. and fulfilled my aspirations of having a better life for me and my family. The result of the placement process was beyond my wildest imagination. While on zero-day I secured a job at Khaitan & Co., one of the best law firms in the country, I had also been offered jobs by two other prominent institutions. My immediate reaction was one of awe, disbelief and eventually relief!

The whole journey started when I accidentally came across the CLAT brochure and took an instinctive decision to give CLAT. With the help and guidance of IDIA, I cracked CLAT with a rank of AIR 343. I got admission in National Law Institute University, Bhopal. Since then the journey has been memorable. During my life in law school, I always remained focused on maintaining a good academic record. I interned with prestigious organisations like Samvad Partners, JSA, Crawford Bailey & Co. and the Chamber of Protik Prokash Banerji. All these internships were great learning experiences and helped me in growing academically and as a person. I was also involved actively in student activities like NLIU Law Review, Placement Coordination Committee, Alumni Cell. I also took part in co-curricular activities like Moot, ADR, Client Counseling competitions. Recently I participated in the 7th Symbiosis B. Krishna Memorial National IPR Moot Court Competition held at Symbiosis Law School, Pune.

During this entire journey IDIA has been a constant companion and has helped me by providing me with career counseling, internships and preparing me for job interviews. I really believe in the goal of IDIA and remain committed to the cause of IDIA, looking forward to helping other IDIA Scholars like me in their pursuit of success.”
