The talk was attended by the faculty members, scholars and students from various Departments of the institute.
The resource persons were Shri. Anand Mahindra, Chairman, Mahindra Group .While replying to several questions, Shri. Anand Mahindra explained several concepts very nicely for instance how to handle the failures in life? How to set career goals? What is collaborative competition, leadership qualities, innovation at business, among others? He said one should allow him/herself to feel terror and tears, all to feel low, take time off, and then a new energy would come into you and one will bounce back with more thrust and strength.
Shri. Anand Mahindra said that without innovation/new experiments/risks one cannot flourish and achieve the ambitious business targets. He further wittingly added that in Indian we use ‘Jugaad’ means some sort local transitory arrangement for achieving the purpose and solving the problem, but that is not innovation rather innovation is ‘Jhakaas’ means perfectly precise and principal based solution to the problems. So we must move from ‘Jugaad” to Jhakaas.
Gurkirat singh, Executive director, GGI has welcomed the students, faculty participants and also motivated the students for applying for an idea for Smart India Hackathon 2019. He said that the sessions were very interesting and informative and this will not only be useful for the students but also for the faculty of the institute.
