    The Hon'ble Governor said that there is an urgent need for strengthening the moral fabric of the society and the nation through such moral stories and value education. Modern knowledge activities should be integrated with indie’s cherished values; their fusion with culture and dharma-samskruthi would establish a society and nation which ensures equality among the citizens and their emotional integration. The new National Education Policy (2020) would ensure a bright future of present and future generations to come. These essential verticals play a critical role in building New India. It is our sacred responsibility to ensure the success of NEP (2020).

    Katha Loka brought out by Prof. Doreswamy, Adviser, Education Reforms, GoK is aligned to NEP (2020) and therefore I am sure that it would succeed in inculcating the required values in school children.

    Chief Guest, Sri B.S. Yediyurappa, hon’ble former chief minister of Karnataka said that Prof. Doreswamy’s experience and experience of 5 decades have brought fame to the government of Karnataka. His innovative idea of involving elected representatives (MLAs/MLC, MPs) and universities in the adoption of government schools is a great contribution to leverage school education services in Karnataka. His dedication to public good is worthy of emulation by all. Viewed in this perspective, KATHA LOKA symbolizes the public concern of PES University under the eminent leadership of Prof. Doreswamy, he said.

    Dr. Chandrashekara Kambara, President, of Sahitya Academy pointed out that folklore and stories have made immense contributions to the cultural legacy of India. In the present technologically dominant society, storytelling is a threatened art, but books like Katha Loka are a silver lining, giving hope of a great revival of the yeastier years, he said. The Education sector should get maximum benefit from such books, he opined.

    Prof. MR Doreswamy thanked Sri B.S. Yediyurappa for making his dream of leveraging school education services in the state, come true. He also thanked the Hon'ble Governor and the Government of Karnataka for helping PES University to organize such a unique function.

  • Silver Jubilee Reunion Celebrations of B.E Class of ’97, PESU (formerly PESIT)

    In August 1997, when we stepped out of college we had a degree in our hands, doubts and fear in our minds, but most importantly we had BIG dreams, ambitions and the courage to take a giant stride into the real world.

    It was now time to relish and cherish all those memories, share all those stories of 25 years with our friends, express our heartfelt gratitude to our Professors and sincere gratefulness in some way to our alma mater.

    Almost 8 months of preparations culminated on Aug 14th, 2022, Sunday in the picturesque location, Brahmi Wellness Retreat. As part of the preparatory process there were surveys conducted on the type of event, location, photography, transport for the faculty and other nitty-gritties like banners, posters, customized T-shirts, mementos and shawls for the faculty. All these were planned through Zoom calls as the planning committee comprised some overseas alumni as well. Alumni from all the branches – Computer Science, Electronics and Mechanical were reached out and were part of this gala event.

    As most of us wanted to spend a good time chatting with friends and our faculty, no intense agenda was planned. A day out in the resort with felicitation for our respected faculty, sharing of some experiences and stories from each branch representative talks from our faculty were planned along with lunch and high tea. A separate Whatsapp group was created to coordinate the commute and other plans.

    On D-day, small coordinated groups started arriving at the resort from 10 A.M onwards. Seeing the welcome banner at the resort was an emotional moment, soon the planning committee got into work and organised stuff for registration of all the guests followed by serving the refreshing Jaljeera as a welcome drink.

    The stage was set near the swimming pool area with an excellent view of the landscape inside the resort. A huge backdrop with our old iconic building in the background was a testimony to our attachment with our campus of yester years.

    The excitement began when our Principal Prof. MVS Sir arrived at the venue and all of us immediately went back to our good old days when he used to emphasize so much on punctuality. The excitement continued with the arrival of Prof. Bindu Ma’am from Coimbatore, Dr. Anuradha Ma’am, Vyjayanthimala Ma’am, Vanamala Ma’am, NVP Sir, Dr. K S Sridhar Sir, B.V.Girish Sir, Dr. KVN Sir, Chethan Sir, Omkar Sir and finally, our joy knew no bounds when Prof. Jawahar Sir arrived at the venue at sharp 12:30, at the start of the event through cake cutting.

    Prof. Jawahar Sir, renowned excellent speaker that he is, gave a talk on how PESU has moved on with the changing times in technology, the future readiness and all that with the roots still grounded through contributions to the society from PES. It was inspiring and motivating for all of us as usual. This was followed by enticing and appealing talks from MVS Sir and NVP Sir. After a few of our alumni shared their experiences, it was time for the scrumptious lunch served in a separate banquet hall for our crowd. All of us enjoyed the relishing vegetarian buffet along with our beloved faculty enjoying some hearty laughs and chit chats. 

    After the mandatory photo shoot, it was now time for the felicitation of our faculty at the stage that was set for this purpose. Each faculty was presented with a crystal memento and honoured with a shawl by the students. As the evening approached, it was time for high tea where a number of beverages were served along with snacks. All the faculty had left by then and the students spent some time on the lawns chatting, gossiping and cherishing those wonderful memories that we had during our college days.

    Since the next day was August 15th, some of us met in the RR campus for Independence Day alumni meet and again spent some good time at the campus with a walking tour of the golden jubilee block given by NVP Sir.

    All in all these 25 years, silver jubilee reunion and celebrations of B.E Class of ’97 turned out to be one of its kind, and as MVS Sir put it, it is also the 50 years golden jubilee of PES Institution and 75 years of Indian Independence. A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity well utilized and cherished for years to come.

    It was a great pleasure for PES University students, and faculty members to have Prof/Dr. Derick.H. Lindquist on our campus on August 11, 2022, to address the topic “Stress management at the workplace”. Dr. Derick. H. Lindquist is a professor, Dean of the Jindal School of Psychology and Counselling. He served as a postdoctoral fellowship and research associate at Indiana University and the University of Kansas. He was an assistant professor in the Psychology department at the Ohio State University in 2009.

He has published more than 25 research review articles and book chapters and is a member of various organizations. He has a passion for teaching and mentoring students.

    Dr. Derick. H. Lindquist started his session by explaining how the brain works. He also explained about the left hemisphere and right hemisphere of the brain which handle reading, writing, and calculations. Some call it the logical side of the brain, the right brain is more visual and deals in images more than words. It processes information in an intuitive and simultaneous manner is what he said.

    He stated that Fluid intelligence is defined as reasoning ability, and the ability to generate, transform and manipulate different types of novel information in real-time which will increase the ability to perceive things. He mentioned the 5 key domains and they are the SCARF model.

    They are as follows:

    • Status

    • Certainty

    • Autonomy

    • Relatedness

    • Fairness

    He further explained the concept of Stress, it is a feeling of emotional or physical tension & it can come from any event or thought that makes you feel frustrated, angry, or nervous.

    Feeling of being overwhelmed or unable to cop up due to external or internal demand leads to emotional, physical, and psychological strain.

    He said that our bodies are uniquely designed to handle stress. When presented with a threatening situation our most basic survival instinct is to prepare to fight or run away. Stress reactions assist your body with acclimating to new circumstances.

    Stress can be positive, keeping us ready, propelled, and prepared to stay away from risk. He gave an instance where, in the event that you have a significant test coming up, a pressure reaction could assist your body with working harder and remaining conscious longer. In any case, stress turns into an issue when stressors go on without help or times of unwinding.

    Students were educated on the particular topic Amygdala & stress by Dr. Derick. H. Lindquist. He says too much amygdala activation, inducing chronic emotional arousal or stress, can inhibit the prefrontal cortex and high-order cognitive abilities.

    He further stated about Resilience it is an ability to bounce back with a positive capacity to cope with acute and chronic distress and innate resistance to negative events examples are hardness, resourcefulness, etc. 

    Whereas coping is an ability to manage stress and also and ability to think rationally and solve problems, it requires conscious effort and the skill acquired through personal experience or learning is called coping.

    Whereas the author says that attitude is all about thinking and feeling good about yourself, maintaining a positive attitude, spending time with people you like and admire as it will rub off on you also, keeping your eyes on the prize & Avoid date day distractions & finally Minimize Self-critique to maintain expectations.

    Speaker says that the physical coping technique is diet and sleep as a well-balanced diet provides mental energy and clarity of thought. Sleep deprivation impacts physical and mental health. Keywords, stress, emotion, emotion, mental health.

  • PES restores Dr. S. Radhakrishnan’s Bungalow @ Mysore

    A silver lining in heritage conservation in the ‘City of Palaces’ Mysore, is in The majestic bungalow that was the residence of Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan when he was a professor and taught Philosophy at the University of Mysore has been restored to its original glory. The heritage home of Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan was inaugurated recently, This is the first positive step on the heritage conservation front in a city that suffered the shock of the collapse of another landmark structure in Lansdowne Building early this year which was Over 100 years old.

    The structure, popularly called Radhakrishnan’s Bungalow, at Saraswathipuram, is reckoned to have been in existence for more than 100 years and was constructed even before the University of Mysore came into being in 1916. N.S. Rangaraju of the Department of Ancient History and Archaeology, the University of Mysore - who closely monitored the restoration of the structure said that all conservation norms and principles were followed. There was no replica for the original materials, including lime mortar and tiles used for roofing, and hence these were handmade to the original specifications at the site itself, said Professor Rangaraju. The structure was dilapidated the portico had collapsed and a portion of the ceiling was on the verge of collapse. The outhouse too had collapsed, while the pillars of the main building were damaged, Professor Rangaraju said.

    But in view of the structure’s association with Radhakrishnan, it was deemed fit to restore the building and it was made possible due to the magnanimity of Dr. M.R. Doreswamy, Ex-MLC and Founder of PES Institutions. He contributed a sum of Rs. 78 lakh for the purpose. The university plans to convert the structure into a museum, besides establishing a research centre with a focus on the philosopher President.

    From the university’s perspective, this is the second major conservation exercise associated with it. The Jayalakshmi Vilas Mansion, which houses the folklore museum, was restored in 2001-02 with funding from Infosys Foundation. Interestingly, the Professors’ Quarters, next to Radhakrishnan’s Bungalow, are also being restored. It will be the headquarters of the Indian Heritage Cities Network.

    Mysore University Vice-Chancellor Dr. Hemanth Kumar recently felicitated, Dr. M. R. Doreswamy when he visited the Bungalow.

The workshop gave an overview of the recent IPL auction and how the best players were selected for the positions of batsmen, all-rounder, wicketkeeper, fast bowlers and spinners. Mr. Naveen Ningaiah observed that from a career perspective the roles of a sports data analyst would involve collecting and analyzing sports data, updating individual players’ suitability. Coaches and team managers can use this data to make informed decisions during or before sports competitions. These roles can be classified into two categories. The first is business, where data is used to improve the performance of a team or sports organization. The second category deals with the entertainment aspect and provides fans with details they want to know about athletes. According to Mr. Naveen Ningaiah, there are two key aspects of sports analytics, on-field and off-field. On-field analytics deals with improving the on-field performance of teams and players and off-field analytics deals with the business side of sports.

  • Teenage student develops mini-oxygen plant in just eight months, all by himself @ PESU Student

    OxiPlant works on the principle of Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA). The device consists of two specially fabricated stainless cylinders, each filled with a measured quantity of a specially made material called Zeolite. Dry, cooled and Pressurized air is alternatively passed through these cylinders. Nitrogen molecules get thermodynamically adsorbed by the zeolite crystals, allowing oxygen to flow out as a desired product. While this principle has been well known for over a century, the challenge lies in engineering a solution around the principle. Building OxiPlant involved mechanical design and fabrication, pneumatics circuits with proper understanding of pressure, temperature and flow controls, and more critically electronics which control, monitor, and automatically operate the entire oxygen production cycle.

    Uniqueness of OxiPlant and its differentiation from commonly available concentrators lies in its Configurability, Flexibility, Scalability, and Monitorability. It is configurable to support many alternate processes such as PSA, VSA, VPSA etc. It is flexible to support production of Oxygen or Nitrogen or other gases. It is scalable to higher throughput up to about 20 lpm. It is monitorable as many temperatures, pressure and flow probes can be hooked up to provide valuable performance data that would form basis of plant tuning.

    Prof. M R Doreswamy, Hon'ble Chancellor, has congratulated Tejas P Karanji on his achievement and encouraged him for more inventors.

  • Expert talk on corporate innovation through finance partnerships

    The role of finance is evolving to enable corporate innovation. Shobana Rajagopal drew from her experience as the revenue controller in Microsoft India and shared her understanding of digital transformation in finance partnerships. Speaking about how COVID has affected industries and its core operations around the world, she observed that acceleration of technology that should have happened in a time span of ten years happened in one year. This probably happened due to the unavoidable circumstances which pushed industries to work on technology and digital transformation as soon as possible. In the context of industrial revolution 4.0, the transformation process involved engagement of customers through products and services with great customer experience, empowering employees by up-skilling them with the newest technologies, optimising operations by segregating repetitive tasks to automated systems and finally transforming products to become more digitally equipped. The process of growth involves hyper scale, hyper flexibility and hyper security. Innovation includes augmented and mixed reality where the objects residing in the real world are enhanced by computer generated perceptual information, machine learning which consists of computer algorithms that can improve experience automatically through the use of data. In the area of finance, statistical models are used to make predictions, detect frauds and provide financial advisory services to the stakeholders. As a result, intelligent products and services have evolved. The technology imperatives in the field of finance include: automation and robotics, data visualisation, advanced analytics and perspective analytics. An example of real time financial info is using MS excel where emphasis is on consumption of data and the best way to deliver insights. Advanced analytics for finance operations is about the optimisation of algorithms and knowledge of tools. Perspective analytics for business and sales operations focuses on the organisational health and the move from telling stakeholders from what happened to what will happen. As stakeholders are resistant to change – the best way to deal with change is to deal with it. In the past financial functions included: book-keeping, payables and receivable, reporting and controls and tax and compliance. In the present situation, it has evolved to be more of strategic planning, treasury and working capital management, capital budgeting, risk management and corporate strategy. Given the example of Amazon, they are doing well in terms of R&D, strategies and business development act as key contributors. Digitalization, adoption of new technology, bots and algorithms are important to stay competitive. Equally important are building a digital financial function with clear vision of expected targets, link to overarching business strategy, bridging skill gaps which is current capability versus modern finance, refining competency models and finally adhering to companies’ securities standards. Reimagining the finance work force in an agile operating model where finance teams can quickly share expertise when needed most is critical to the organization's success. The diverse set of views might deviate a bit but new ideas might spark which would help in the long term. Ms. Shobana Rajagopal, qualified Chartered Accountant and experienced corporate executive delivered the expert talk hosted by department of management studies on February 22, 2022.

  • Expert talk on meaning and significance of the latest union budget

    The insightful session on the latest budget by Mr Narendra Jadhav, Indian economist, educationist, public policy expert, lecturer, and writer focused on reading between the lines and deciphering the true import of numbers projected on the budget. Mr Narendra Jadhav started by taking the audience through the process of budget making which starts six months before the announcement. Information shared by economists, business associations, agriculturists, trade unions and politicians are scrutinized as well as surveys conducted. The process of printing the budget takes place in the basement of the ministry of finance. To maintain confidentiality, the members involved are kept in complete isolation. Further, Mr Narendra Jadhav spoke about the difference between economic survey and budget. Economic survey is a comprehensive economic document which consists of facts and figures and all about what is happening in the economy. Data regarding government finances, agriculture and other areas are reviewed with all factors and services providing the basis for predictions and recommendations and are not binding. A budget on the other hand not only contains facts and figures but also the other aspects such as political documents. The finance minister synergizes their combination and proceeds with the preparation of the budget. While preparing the budget, there are three main values that are considered: the revised number of the current year, budgeted numbers and the final number for the previous year. Mr Narendra Jadhav also spoke about how India being a developing economy has a fiscal deficit unlike developed economies. Getting into the domestic and global context, factors of grave concern reflected in the budget include: backdrop of corona and the second wave which happened to be heavily taxing for economies and countries, large and unprecedented increase in unemployment rates and elevated levels of inequality. According to reports, 84% of Indian people suffered due to reduced incomes due to prolonged lockdown and the number of billionaires has surprisingly increased. The reports on distribution of national income which is the income of a particular year and national wealth which is the accumulated incomes were examined, and the results show the gap between incomes of rich and the poor, where the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer. About the important developments globally: countries suffered a lot due to the pandemic, India suffered more but is also recovering at a good pace; US being a developed country has seen its highest inflation rate in years, it has tightened its monetary policy which has led to rise in interest rates, all of which are bound to have an impact on India. Ukraine and Russia backed by China are facing a likely war. This has resulted in a highly tense situation, which in turn has very serious implications for India. This would have fluctuations in the price of oil and the export promotions wouldn’t be possible. The budget assumptions include price changes due to war and effect on orderly movement of capital. The expected rate of growth was projected to be 8-8.5%, whereas he had his opinion that the growth rate wouldn’t be as much but would be around 7-7.5%. The budget has increased the government capital expenditure and has allocated 7.5 lakh crore for infrastructure, out of which 43.4% is allocated to railways and roadways and a large portion to defense. The strategy is to promote the private sector to invest in infrastructure. The logic here is that, when the government comes in with public investment, it will create more jobs. Mr Narendra Jadhav also spoke about, Azadi ka Amruth Mahotsav, an initiative of the Government of India to celebrate and commemorate 75 years of progressive India and the glorious history of its people, culture and achievements. Mr Narendra Jadhav considered the budget of 2022-23 as a transformative beginning. Mr Narendra Jadhav is an authority on Babasaheb Ambedkar’s life and work. He is a member of the Rajya Sabha. He has previously served on the Planning Commission of India and the National Advisory Council of the government of India. Jadhav has received 67 national and international honours and distinctions, including four Honorary D.Litt degrees from the University of Oxford and the title Commander of the Order of Academic Palms from the French government. Mr Narendra Damodar Jadhav holds a BSc in Statistics from Ramnarain Ruia College of the University of Mumbai and an MA in Economics from the University of Mumbai. He received his PhD in Economics from Indiana University in the United States. The Expert talk on meaning and significance of the latest union budget by Mr Narendra Jadhav was held online on February 3, 2022.

  • Guest lecture on window to career transformation

    It is the need of the hour to be adaptive during this crucial time for the community, industry and business. The guest speaker Saurabh Shah elaborated “Imagine you are the owner of the bank and 86400/- is deposited in your account everyday only for 24 hours. What will you do with it? A wise person would invest on business, shares and on anything that gives back profit as returns. 86400 are seconds of a day. Therefore, every single day we should use it to improve our present status. Where we are today and where we will be soon are the most important matters for one who wants their career to be in a good place. Where we are today on social media, exams, many goals, and parties. Where we will be soon- success, career, earnings, wanting more! Shifting from where we are today to where we will be soon is called Paradigm shift. SWOT analysis plays a major role in one’s self development. The last thing the fish knows about is water. What are we great at? Have you self- validated your thoughts? Do you have a role model in your mind? We must keep questioning this to ourselves from time to time. It is extremely important to have a role model to achieve your current goal. Academic effectiveness: What next? Is it basic? Yes, Basics need to be perfect in the practical world. It is important to relate basic concepts with application. Stay updated on the industry and business. Luckily PES University trains students by solving case studies and research papers based on real time instances of Industries or companies. Concentrating on a final year project is very important as it shows our ability to the firm that is going to recruit you. Communication is everyone's way to build your career. To improve your communication skills, be proactive in career-based activities, understand your communication style and work on it, reach out to people by asking questions and communicate your progress, build your contacts from day 1 and it’s called networking. To have a successful corporate life only you can own and drive your career. Organization provides vision and environment and manager points towards opportunities. Your growth is the breadth and depth of your skills.” Saurabh Shah is Head of Human Resources at Capita, a digital services and software business, delivering innovative solutions.

  • Talk on dark side of corporate governance

    In the fast paced business integrating with the global economy a corporate governance is reflected in not just good environment, eminent board of directors, financial stability but also in constant improvement in quality of goods and services and consumer satisfaction. The rare insight was shared by Robin Banerjee, Managing Director of Caprihans India Ltd who is a Chartered Accountant, Cost and Management Accountant, Company Secretary, and has a master’s degree in commerce. He drew upon the experience of working in key positions with several large multinational corporations in over 20 countries. He focused on the questions of “Were you ever exposed to corporate fraud? Between what is corporate fraud? What is the dark side? What is good governance?” He went on to explain, “Knowingly or unknowingly, you would have seen or participated in any one of the frauds related to corporations as we live around people who are into corruption. Corporate fraud and the dark side are the same thing. They are another face of a good side which is not directly seen by the public.” He illustrated with an example: Restaurant. Yes, you would have noticed a few restaurants which were open a year before pandemic time would have closed within 6-7 months of time by your next visit. What might be the reason? Isn’t it that the restaurants are usually opened by good chefs, political members, one with good funding? It has fallen not because of finance stability but because of poor management or poor governance or SOP (Stand operating procedure). The restaurants which have existed for several years have kept customer satisfaction as their top priority. “Ethics in Corporate governance, the main ethical focus of a company will be satisfying the needs of the customers. Here there will be no chance for fraud. Many Germans based and French based companies are known for following ethics in the corporate governance. Running business ethically, TATA is known for running business ethically. Author had visited the Taj with his friend for a cup of coffee and a sandwich. After a few minutes of delivering the food to the Author the waiter asks for the review. To that the author said that the coffee tasted good while the sandwich tasted bad. The waiter instantly offered a refund for the author. Taj runs an ethical business. When you talk about corporate governance it is all about not to cheat customers, employees, board of directors and to the law.” He described another example: As and when the demand for honey increased during pandemic times, IARI took samples of honey and tested many of the branded honey. To their surprise 11 out of 14 branded honeys were adulterated. They were all well-known big brands which survived the market for years together. He was asked to use honey by most of the people during pandemic times as it is an immunity booster. Now after knowing this he stopped getting other products related to the same honey brand being a consumer or customer. This is a dark side of good governance. “Sometimes I wonder if the international companies are better as people over there do not compromise on the quality of product than people over here.” McKinsey knowingly funded a pharma company which distributed Opium, which is used in small amounts to treat cancer patients as a pain relief) for more than hundreds of people who died using Opium in huge amounts. The case could not be filed on McKinsey as there was no direct involvement of them in the scam, but was asked to pay a huge amount as a penalty. Three things to be concerned about: “Wilful defaulter, Cyber crime and Cryptocurrency. Wilful defaulter refers to the entrepreneur who is not returning the amount taken by the banks even after confirmation by the court that they had borrowed the amount long back. Cybercrime has increased 300-400% every year. People were into con activities more during pandemic times as they had to face financial crisis. They hack mobiles, bank accounts etc. No system in the world is unhackable.” According to the author the cryptocurrency has limited value. The online talk on the dark side of corporate governance was organized by the Department of MBA, RR campus on January 17, 2022.

  • Tuesday Talk on creating impactful LinkedIn presence

    The talk about using LinkedIn effectively by students was delivered by Anmol Garg, popular standup comedian and an entrepreneur. Being a LinkedIn influencer, he believes that LinkedIn can help improve one’s professional career dramatically. For students, a resume is an important part of career growth. Anmol answered the question of how effective a Resume should be for students. Students who do not use LinkedIn effectively are more familiar with Instagram which is used by 99% of people with access to mobiles. Anmol felt that LinkedIn is one’s resume. But this question might arise at the same time “why LinkedIn and no other job-related platforms?”. Anmol observed, “LinkedIn is a platform where people get to know you better than cold connections which can be seen in other platforms. LinkedIn has many similar features as that of other Platforms but it enables rapid networking because it has earned its trust with companies as well as employees.” In the session, one of the attendee’s LinkedIn profile checks was done based on fields of marketing and finance. Anmol was of the view that marketing based LinkedIn profiles should have many valid certificates that show one’s capability. The main reason for usage of LinkedIn is getting a job and further, to create a brand of our own and also to gain followers. Followers are gained by networking which means contacting as many as people on LinkedIn and discussing with them about marketing and by giving value to the content shared on the platform. “It’s all about how well you are connected to people, how many connections you have”. Finance based LinkedIn profiles should contain share market info, decoding start-ups finance structure, current affairs on finance related topics. The main thing to take into consideration is not to state obvious facts. The site can be monetised by creating a course that helps others. Profile building is key to maximizing the effectiveness of Linkedin presence. Profile photo must be in formals. Description like MBA student at PESU may not stand out and instead Here to market marketing would attract the searcher or finder to know about you more. Upload a photo that makes you sell to the companies. Maybe a photo of you addressing a huge audience. This says that you are more into networking. Writeup on About is where the actual you or your ability is known. Here you should share your unique knowledge that people don’t know and are keen to know about. Make sure it is in the form of a four lined story. Example: Title (movie reference) as “wolf of wall street” and then explain the selling of pen instance in marketing and finance terminology. Recommendations matter. “Do not ask them to give recommendations instead type from their phone!”. Sounds silly right but that's a fact. Everyone is busy building up their career life so go for it because we don’t know who watches us. Maintaining consistency in LinkedIn posts, may lead you to 1 among 133 CMO’s. Video posts reach people on the platform faster than text posts. Do not post long paragraphs. Let the text be catchy and with some humor. Do not feel hesitant to showcase yourself, as said earlier, it is a game of consistency. Make sure you are under the spotlight. Share your experience as people are here to know more about your ability. Show people that you refer to many articles in daily life. For example, while conversing with people discuss current affairs on LinkedIn. One of the references from Anmol Garg was “Seth Godin” “sales hacks” who blogged everyday for 11 years and many of his posts found mention in business books. Anmol Garg, a popular LinkedIn influencer who runs a sales training company called Sales5X which helps startups with sales strategies, is an alumni of PESIT, batch 2010. The Tuesday Talk was hosted online by the Department of MBA on January 11, 2022.

  • Talk on art of blogging

    As part of the Tuesday Talk series interaction on art of blogging was addressed by blogger and digital marketer Mr. Deepak Kanakaraju. He started by highlighting the importance of blogs in the digital world. He mentioned that the result of blogging is not constant, at times the outcome might be 10x times and sometimes it might be zero or even negative. Mr. Kanakaraju remembered his days of starting as a blogger and how he began as a moto-blogger. He shared his experience of his visit to China for ECIMA and, he stated that in his early learning period, “he learned Digital Marketing without even knowing what Digital Marketing is.” The speaker stressed that most decisions we take are a buffer against rejections and we as a generation are scared to accept rejection and hence are afraid to take any bold step. He countered his statement by providing the example of 'rolling of a dice' as a probability of obtaining results, the more we roll, the better probability to succeed. Mr. Deepak expressed that blogging is not merely about attracting customers but it is concerned with building an audience and trying to sell, as blogs attract traffic but do not make sales. He observed, “don’t create content and then try to sell but see what sells and then create the product. As efforts always yield results, it is important for us to take initiatives and start at the cost of our efforts. When we fail to act on it, every idea is an opportunity cost. Hence Go ahead and grab every opportunity. Indeed, it will be associated with embarrassment, but we need to take the initiative and move forward. Whenever we discuss an idea or seek help from family and friends about our decisions, it implies that we are not confident about it. Any day, it is better to 'ask for forgiveness rather than permission”. According to him, the best way to write a Blog is by choosing a self-hosted domain. Platforms like medium.com, blogspot.com and wordpress.com are also good options to consider. He felt that it is good if the writing is professional but in the end, it should be direct and easily understandable by everyone. He thought that one can start by writing about 500 words on any casual topic as if it is a conversation with a friend. The speaker suggested to the audience to develop the habit of writing a journal as it slows down the process of thinking and enables one to frame the sentences better. He compared writing to a way of thinking. He also gave an overview of the CATT framework for blogging, which is to Create content, Attract an audience, develop Trust and then Transact with them. The session concluded with an attempt at writing a blog addressing friends assuming that they are presently in the year 2025. The talk on the art of blogging was organized by the MBA department on December 21, 2021.

  • Talk on the power of storytelling

    The students found this session as an engaging confluence of anthropology, technology, and philosophy made possible by powerful storytelling. The talk featured Atul Jalan an entrepreneur, technologist, science storyteller and founder of Manthan and Algonomy, creating pioneering AI solutions for the world’s leading retailers and consumer connect businesses.

    Atul is a sought-after speaker to understand how technology is transforming man and the institutions he has created, changing how we do things and reshaping humans. And this is the perspective on technology that he usually speaks and  writes about - not as an application of science but rather in a simple and philosophical way for managing and leading a better life. He is also the author of “Where Will Man Take Us?”. The speaker started his talk by calling himself  lucky to be alive despite problems such as new diseases and nuclear annihilation. The speaker asked the students not to lament about anything and enjoy the privileges one has. He dreams of living in different times like during  Shakespeare, Leonardo da Vinci and also the French Revolution. He tells that technology has made this era more transformative. Based on evolution we stand a new phase. We have examples of artificial intelligence, Gen-tech, Quantum computing.

    The extensive reach beyond muscle power and technology is merging with biology. He calls evolution artificially engineered and is based on many factors. He mentioned that the people of this age have the responsibility of rewriting, redefining, and reimagining. And the process should be ethically flawless. Very little change of 1.26 % happened in humans, years ago from the nearest cousin chimpanzee and now we are at a very different phase and this tells us how change can bring wonders. He tells that he's eagerly waiting for the magic of 2032 where the social problems will be at a lower level. Answering a question from a student, the speaker compared the genetic structure to a word processor, and concerning ethics in technology, he exclaimed knife is a knife.

    India requires changes and has many challenges such as economic inequality and social unrest. He quoted the example of the internet and told how India has responded well in adopting the change. Change is good but it comes with disruption. There is innate inertia to change and the main agents that can influence this inertia are education and policymaking and unfortunately, both of these are habitual laggards.

    The speaker spoke about his inspiration for writing a book. Stories are first followed by other things. Answering a question from a student, Mr. Jalan said that there is confusion between mythology and history and also how imagination is turned into reality. Earlier the change was seen through the lenses of religion and philosophy and for the first time change is seen through the lens of science and technology. He advised students not to follow a narrower approach and asked them to get lost even more and considers that as the best way to find out about oneself. Mr. Jalan refers to technology as a continuum where the stories are imagined and technology brings stories to life. All streams are necessary to contribute to the tech revolution and everything is tech-enabled where one can leverage or contribute. AI and technology can replace humans and it is not a bad thing. Our current lifestyle is just about 300 years old and has been ours since the industrial revolution. Technology is not a zero-sum game. It gives opportunity and creates value. Ford was making horse carriages earlier when their industry got disrupted they moved to motorized carriages and this later became the wheel of the economy. He mentioned Luddites, used as a metaphor for the one who opposes technology. Luddism started by opposing the use of machinery in the textile industry which later employed a million people. There will be  displacements and disruptions, society has to manage them. If one job is destroyed a million are created. Shortly, technology can bring drastic changes in the healthcare and education sector and there will be some of its repercussions 

    also. Technology is building new dimensions and it will change everything. We have examples of web 3.0, NFT and Blockchain. Pandemic has proven it. Technology is always seen as in progression and confluence is the point where the magic  happens. Being philosophical he calls happiness is subjective and is not the mind's job. He requested the audience not to be prejudiced and to always stay vigilant. The guest speaker, Atul Jalan delivered the talk on Power of  Storytelling at RR campus on December 14, 2021.

    One takes the switches, plugs and appliances for granted and never attempts to rectify them when they stop working. Understanding how it all works and handling it can make repair and maintenance an easy task. The two-wheelers and four-wheelers are complex machines but one can make a beginning in understanding it by handling the minor tasks which are essential for their smooth working. Design thinking is a systematic approach to problem solving which helps a student develop practical innovative solutions for difficult problems. This process focuses on need finding, understanding, creating, thinking, and executing. Students are also educated on the need to volunteer for social activities apart from academics. Students learn to empathize, help the under privileged and feel a sense of gratitude when helped.

  • Sir MV - Tribute to an Engineer-Statesman Par Excellence

    Every year, 15th September is celebrated as Engineers’ Day in India (Sri lanka and Tanzania too), in honour of Sir Mokshagundam Visvesvaraya, fondly known as Sir MV, whose contributions to public good have left an indelible mark in the history of India’s development, especially to Karnataka. His administrative acumen, attention to details, vision for all round development, unwavering dedication and above all transparency in public life have made his life and times a folklore to not only his engineering profession but also to all sections of society, from citizen to all those at the cutting edge of public administration. Here, I venture to record my impressions of how this proud son of Karnataka, refused to be constrained from the shackles of poverty of pre-independence India, to become an icon of public administration, shaping country’s development for all round development. His journey from a civil engineer to be a recipient of India’s highest honour, Bharata Ratna has a message for all, not just the engineering profession.

    Sir MV’s earlier contributions were in his civil engineering field. After a successful tenure in PWD of Bombay Government, he was invited to join the Indian Irrigation Commission where he proved his mettle by devising innovative floodgates to raise the level of water storage in reservoirs (first in Pune). The same system was installed later in KRS dam, Mysore. Another feat in his early career was to implement a system to prevent sea erosion of Vishakapatnam port.

    It was the then King of Mysore, Krishnaraja Wodeyar IV, another visionary and the most benevolent among the Kings, who invited Sir MV to lead the development of the then Mysore Kingdom as Diwan. He accepted Sir MVs philosophy “ Without Industries India cannot Grow”. Results were spectacular as Sir MV established many institutions for development such as Mysore Soap Factory, Parasitoid Laboratory, Mysore Iron & Steel Works (now named after Visvesvaraya), Sri Jayachamarajendra Polytechnic, State Bank of Mysore, Century Club, Mysore Chamber of Commerce (now FKCCI), University Visvesvaraya College of Engineering (UVCE, Bangalore) and many other industries. KRS dam in Mysore stands as a testimony of his engineering skills, vision for development and above all an illustrious example for all professions as to how one can contribute to public good and national development from his/her chosen field of service. In this regard, Sir MV stands out as a true patriot and no less a nationalist than those who chose to serve India through struggle for independence. Sir MV chose to serve the country as a professional engineer to free India from poverty and take the initial but firm steps towards self reliance.

    Addressing the association of engineers of Mysore (1910) he said that in the west, expenditure on education is considered a national investment and promptly followed it up with the establishment of University of Mysore, University of Agriculture, Bangalore and a Polytechnic in Bangalore.

    Sir MV also espoused the cause of charity with a purpose of empowerment towards self-reliance rather than supporting individuals, as both the individual and nation grow together productively. Seeds charity were sown by him so early which the modern governments have reinvented in the form of PPP.

    Apart from the above widely known facts, Sir MV was an icon of public values. It is widely known that before accepting the exalted position of Diwan of Mysore, he first obtained the concurrence of his family members not to seek any official favours from him.

    Many inspirational values he has left for future generations are eternally relevant to guide the society: transparency, age, life long learning, value of time, payback to society with a sense of gratefulness, value of planning before execution to prevent wastage and equality.

    I hold the view that Sir MV’s birthday should not be limited to Engineering profession alone. His life and times based on values in public life and vision to contribute to national development beyond one’s professional field are eternally relevant to all professions. They are the basic ingredients of growth even in 21st century and beyond, where the challenges of 4th industrial revolution based on knowledge activities hold the key to individual and national success.  

    PES University, as a tribute to Sir MV is offering a credit based course along with Mahathma Gandhi and Vivekananda.  

    I implore the Government to integrate Sir MV’s messages in curricula to inspire the youth and convince them about the huge opportunities to contribute to nation building in whatever profession they may choose.

  • REINSTATE YOURSELF AS GURU – DR. GURURAJ KARAJAGI

    Quality of education depends on the quality of the teachers and every teacher should aspire to become a Guru. These are the inspirational words from the talk delivered by the noted educationist and columnist-author Dr. Gururaj Karajagi at the Faculty Development Program organized by PES University.

    He said in his talk said that a good teacher teaches and makes sure the student learns the concepts and lessons. Whereas a Guru transforms student life in a positive way. The guru as a torchbearer and the guide encourages the student in every life stages to stroll on the less traveled road.

    India has traditionally been known for its ‘guru-shishya’ parampara of teaching-learning. Sage Vishwamitra-Rama, Sri Krishna- Arjuna, Sri Ramkrishna Paramahamsa- Swami Vivekananda are few among the ones who belong to this tradition, where the students achieved the greater heights due to the role of their Guru's. Over time as our civilization grew further, somewhere on the way this evolved into a ‘teacher-student’ mechanism. Nevertheless guru-shishya parampara still continues in our Nation and Subramaiam Aiyyar-Dr. Abdul Kalam is one among the many in the recent times.

    Dr. Karajagi emphasized that a teacher must use the language effectively. Teacher has to provide an environment to learn new things in every class. Further he said that, it is the responsibility of a teacher to facilitate creativity and arouse curiosity in the students. He called upon teachers to not only become intellectually good veteran teachers but also to transform the lives of students as a Guru.

    Dr. M.R. Doreswamy, Chancellor PES University said the quality and value based education are key for students success in the Society. Education without values is like a flower without fragrance. The educational eco system may need changes and reformations occasionally in-order to foster better learning. I am very proud and deem it as a privilege to say that I am a teacher rather than the Chancellor of the University. Dr. Doreswamy acknowledged the role of teachers in students' success and nation development.

    Vice Chancellor of PES University Dr. J. Suryaprasad, Registrar of PES University Dr.K.S.Sridhar and Director of Hanumanatha Nagar campus Prof. M.V. Sathyanarayana were present. Over 200 young teachers across campuses of PES participated in the FDP.

  • Vaccinate teachers on priority, they are Corona Warriors – Prof. M.R. Doreswamy

    I heartily congratulate Sri B.S. Yediyurappa, Hon’ble chief minister of Karnataka and Dr.K. Sudhakar Minister for Health and Family Welfare for successfully conducting the vaccination programme in the state to the appreciation of all stakeholders. With the momentum and efficiency at their best, I have no doubt that the state would be at the forefront of the vaccination drive, shortly.

    In this context, it is highly necessary to consider all the teachers, from UG to PG, as Corona Warriors and provide vaccination facility to them on priority; this is highly essential since the state is at the very door steps of opening all the educational institutions and at this juncture it is necessary that the teachers should be primed with all support of which vaccination is a priority. This responsibility lies with the state government and all necessary help needs to be extended to teachers to perform to their full potential.

    I request the Hon’ble chief minister to direct all the concerned ministries (health and education) to consider teachers as Corona Warriors to take appropriate action immediately.

    - Dr. M R Doreswamy, Chancellor, PES University

In his words, “Coming from a humble background and switching from Ranchi (my native) to the silicon valley of India, Bangalore, I surely had big hopes and aspirations, and PES University was able to cater to much of those dreams of mine. The recent years were full of achievements that I couldn't even dare imagine earlier. I was able to score 99.23 percentile in CAT 2020 in the first attempt, thanks to the dedication and discipline I followed and support from PES. It's been a beautiful journey and I'm surely looking forward to what other things life has to offer.” He felt that his time at PES University was a rollercoaster ride during which he learnt that everything teaches something, and however small the thing maybe, when one puts in 100 percent effort, expectations would not be a factor and the result would just be an after-effect.
