This response was very apt to the question on the veracity of banning the BBC documentary. Smt. Smriti Irani responded brilliantly to the question on how she won the election in 2019 from the Amethi constituency, which was a strong belt of the Gandhi family. The Congress has been assuring Amethi voters that the train service will be made to Unchahar town since Nehru's time. However, this became a reality only in the Narendra Modi government.

    The context setting of Yuva Samvada was started by the Honorable Member of Parliament of Bangalore South Shri. Tejasvi Surya. Shri. Surya spoke about the responsibility of youngsters in voting during the upcoming election. They could decide the future of India, a vibrant and robust democracy through their voting exercise. Karnataka, especially Bangalore has become one of the top-ranking cities in India, in terms of software development, digital economy and start-ups. All these facts can be sustained if the youngsters vote for a stable government and be part of nation-building, which is currently progressing steadfastly through the works of the Honorable Prime Minister Shri. Narendra Modi.

    Earlier, the Chancellor of PES University Dr. M.R. Doreswamy thanked the BJYM and Honorable Minister Smt Smriti Irani for accepting to interact with first-time voters of PES University.

  • A Long Cherished Dream Fulfilled – Prof. M.R. Doreswamy

    Speaking at the Valedictory of the Vijnana Mela 2022 organized for 2400 school students from government schools from Bangalore South District at the PES University campus, a visibly exuberant and happy Prof. Doreswamy, Advisor, Education Reforms, Government of Karnataka said that one of his long cherished dream to offer a full range of school educational services to government school students is fulfilled.  

     Providing opportunities to government school students in a range of experiential learning activities to ignite curiosity and professional ambition in their mind through lab experiments in physics, chemistry, mathematics and biology, quiz competitions with spot prizes, videos on history of science, Nobel Prizes, thematic posters and yoga practices – a balanced package of knowledge-Science and Skills – is a novel best practice introduced by him to contextualize school education in a contemporary yet the glorious historical settings of Indian contributions to science, Prof. Doreswamy observed.

    Looking back to his early days as Adviser, Prof. Doreswamy recalled that from the beginning he was determined to reimage the school education services and align them not only to the National Education Policy (2020) but also on a path of growth and sustainability in terms of physical and academic infrastructure with pedagogic support for knowledge and skill development of students in government schools Prof. Doreswamy observed. He observed that suspension of educational services during COVID-19 viral pandemic was unfortunate but with commitment and innovative strategies to cover the academic loss, we can overcome all the deficiencies and deliver the expected services to government school students.

    One solution was to enlist the support of Higher education institutions, particularly Universities to lend their academic expertise and resources to make good use of the academic losses and also expose the school students to the emerging trends in education and opportunities available.

    In this context, Prof. Doreswamy lauded the dream Project of honorable Prime Minister Sri. Narendra Modi – VIDYANJALI – under which Universities are obliged to participate in academic development of government schools in their jurisdiction. The Science Fair organized by PES University has given a framework for the 70 Universities in the State to adopt with such improvements as they deem fit in the best interests of the students.

    He pointed out that VIDYANJALI provides a dynamic framework to which new value additions could be made to expand the school education services and their impact by enlisting new players.

    Accordingly, efforts have been made to involve all the Medical Institutions in the State Medical, Dental, Nursing and Pharmacy Colleges) to join the School Health Programme under the aegis of Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences and conduct free annual health checkups and offer primary healthcare reliefs to government school students in their jurisdiction.

    Post Science fair and viewed from a broader perspective VIDYANJALI could be envisaged as a productive package for development of government schools, comprising:

    1.   Academic empowerment by all universities

    2.   Involvement of Medical Institutions for healthcare assistance

    3.   Involvement of All universities to conduct Science fairs

    Prof. Doreswamy requested the government to initiate steps in this direction and all universities to lend a helping hand to the government in the best interests of government school students.

    ‘I am also appealing to the Honorable Prime Minister to make it a national programme’, Prof. Doreswamy said.

    Prof. Doreswamy sincerely acknowledged the help of Bharat Ratna Prof. CNR Rao, Dr. H.R. Nagendra, Chancellor, S-VYASA University, Honorable Ministers, Government of Karnataka Sri R. Ashoka, Sri K.Gopalaih and Sri Ravisubramanya, MLA, Basavanagudi for their support.

    My special thanks to Sri B.C. Nagesh, School Education and Literacy Minister whose help was invaluable for the success of the Science fair, he said.

    I will be failing in my duty if I do not acknowledge the excellent support with dedication and hard work by the high officials, faculty and students of PES University. Similarly, the DDPI of Bangalore South and his staff have coordinated and helped to make the event a grand success. My sincere thanks and acknowledgements to them, Prof. Doreswamy added.

    Shri Gopalaiah, Hon'ble Excise Minister of Government of Karnataka, who spoke before this, said that Doreswamy was the most qualified to lead the education reforms. He said that it is commendable that 2400 students have been shown the features of science through experiments in a simple way.

    In my constituency, I have spent around 45 crores for school development and 130 teachers are being trained every month by expert subject experts, he said. The honorable Minister said that he is going to inaugurate a school where about 2600 students will study soon. About 730 young children are studying LKG / UKG in the 2 new schools in my constituency and behind all this is the influence of Dattu Abhiyan(school adoption campaign) of Sri Doreswamy, he said.

    Mr. Ravisubrahmanya, MLA of Basavanagudi, said, "It is our good fortune that Doreswamy has extended his service to the entire education sector, not limited to the PES organization. He described the organized program as an innovative and diverse program, ranging from experiments to yoga practice.

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.

    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.

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.

  • 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.

    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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Prof. M R Doreswamy was the Chief Guest for Gandhi Jayanti at S-VYASA University

    Dr. M R Doreswamy speaking on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanthi at S-VYASA University said that the entire world is paying tribute on this day to the most celebrated son of India. 

    On this day one needs to introspect why only Gandhi is a Mahatma while there are many individuals rendering yeomen services to the country in many wonderful professions such as lawyers, doctors, teachers, engineers etc, His legacies of Truth and Non-violence have left a lasting imprint on the collective consciousness of human civilization. 

    He is a Mahatma because he got independence for the country using these twin ‘weapons’, not waging a war or with bloodshed. He was aware that violence begets violence and adopted a unique method of protest against foreign rule which was the essence of our great Indian culture. Use of peaceful non-cooperation (satyagraha), he stabilized the Independence movement for years and ultimately got independence to India.

    His life was a message - a message of peace over power, of finding ways to reconcile our differences, and of living in harmony with respect and love even for our enemies. Gandhiji can be considered the most modern political thinker India has ever had. He shines like a luminous star in the galaxy of intellectuals, reformers and leaders.

    Gandhi transformed the Indian National Congress party from “Class party to Mass party” i.e. inclusion of all sections of society in the party he added. He recalled that “Gandhiji was telling that means is as important as end”, He also said that Gandhi's leadership role was extremely complex. Knowing that violence only begets violence, he began practicing passive resistance, Satyagraha. His achievements were nothing less than miracles.  

    Mahatma Gandhi was an icon of simplicity in life style – dress, food and choosing a dress of the poorest Indian, which he even wore when he went to England for the Round Table Conference in 1931 on the invitation of Winston Churchill the then Prime Minister of UK. There many social experiments he conducted as part of the independence movement; two noteworthy are the Swadeshi Movement to encourage boycott of British goods march from Dandi and the famous salt. However today, it is sad that the country is steeped in corruption, countless scams, criminal charges, self-centric and selfishness of people representatives. There is an urgent need to rediscover Gandhian principles.

  • Seminar on Managing the value of the Rupee – Appreciate or Depreciate on 20 Nov 2018

    PES University had organized a seminar on Managing the value of the Rupee-Appreciate or Depreciate. Two eminent speakers presented their views on the topic. Padmashree awardee Shri Manoharan, Chairman of Canara Bank and one of the illustrious bankers of the country, spoke on the fiscal prescriptions for managing the rupee. The other eminent speaker, Dr. Abdul Aziz, a celebrated economist and Chair professor at the National Law School, Bangalore, deliberated on the economic impact of a depreciating rupee. Dr. M. R. Doreswamy, Chancellor of PES University, presided over the function. The gist of the two talks is given below: The value of a currency symbolizes the economic strength of a country. Is there an ideal value of the rupee? There are a myriad number of levers driving the rupee value, most of them not in India’s control. The elephant in the room, clearly, is crude price, a key driver of the value of the rupee. India imports 80% of its oil requirement. A weak rupee will make oil imports dearer, stoking inflation. The crude price itself is subject to forces such as globaleconomic growth, OPEC’s policies, US shale production, international sanctions and political turmoil in countries such as Venezuela. On the other hand, if the US Fed increases interest rates, dollars leave India, further plunging the rupee value. A depreciated rupee increases our Current Account Deficit (CAD). The remittances of the Indian diaspora limit the CAD, but remittances remain unstable due to the turmoil in the Middle-East. A weak rupee does bolster our exports; so, a depreciated rupee is not necessarily all evil. In fact, export-intensive countries such as China and Korea, as a matter of state policy, hold their currencies to boost exports; the US bills them “currency manipulators”. The flip side is that a strong rupee also poses problems; exports become uncompetitive although the import bill reduces. A strong rupee does ease the burden on external borrowings. To be fair, most major currencies have depreciated against the dollar. The rupee depreciation seems steep, but in real terms, IMF feels the depreciation is less than 6% in the last six months. High growth rates of the country and modest levels of external debt favour India in keeping the value of the Rupee in check. The other salutary issue is India’s healthy foreign exchange reserves, although the stated policy of the RBI is not to chase a specific target of the rupee but limit its volatility. Market forces largely determine the rupee movement in India within a band. Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) is growing at a strong clip and helps in stabilizing the rupee; the colour of FDI money is much better than that of fickle FII investments as it creates enduring assets for the country. The recently concluded deal with Japan on currency swap provides some additional cushion. The economic impact of a weak rupee was dwelled upon by the speakers. The impact of depreciated prices on the common man, such as higher fuel costs, was delineated. The speakers expounded on the impact of a weak rupee on India’s economic growth trajectory, per capita income, inflation control, and job creation.
