The World around us seems to be moving at a very fast pace, a continuous urge of moving ahead of each other, has taken over all other things and as a result the whole meaning of growth and Success has taken a new dimension, which is now measured in terms of the power one has, the Assets one accumulates and the life style we have adopted. In all this love, compassion, respect and more over empathy towards others has taken a back seat. We are so engrossed in ourselves, that we forget the purpose of life is to be Happy, create absolute Happiness and spread it also. We don’t realize that frowny faces, grudges, ego doesn’t yield anything at the end. Happiness is eternal bliss, a satisfied soul is better than a pocket full of money, A Compassionate heart better than a knowledgeable mind, and a humble attitude better than a arrogance of power at any given point of time. Most of us find it difficult to wish people at our work place with a smile, ask about their well being, even at our home we don’t find time to communicate to our extended family, wish them well or even meet them. Ego’s, betrayal, lies; lack of empathy has become the new normal of the modern era, specifically in metro cities. The law of nature is whatever we give to the Universe, it comes back to us; hatred, jealousy, indifference towards each other has become so common that we create our own shell of misunderstandings, forgetting that only compassion, love and respect survives till the end. We as a Society have to stop for a while, and think what we are creating and what we will leave as a legacy? How do we want to be remembered, as someone who earned a lot or someone who spread happiness and smiles?. Choice is anyways ours……………

A lecture by Ms.Meena Jaiswal on the 16th of Sept’2017 was all about the dynamics of transition from the campus to the corporate. Underscoring the importance of personality in bagging a job, she stressed that a candidate must find out the targeted skill set before sitting for an interview; once selected, the candidate must display the ability to apply the knowledge gained in the college. She was further of the view that grades and marks obtained in the college were not enough to allow one to achieve success and that the corporate world demanded and valued qualities like accountability, adaptability, emotional and social stability and so on and so forth.
A glimpse into the corporate world and its culture, the lecture carried a checklist of the points to be borne in mind while preparing to join the professional world.
