  • 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.

  • 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.

    Prof. Doreswamy called upon all Universities to celebrate Jayantis in a meaningful way like what S-VYASA is doing today on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti and join hands with the Government’s initiative of adopting Government Schools in the State. He called upon “S-VYASA” to sign MoU with the State Government for introducing YOGA in all government schools.

    Dr. H R Nagendram the Chancellor of S-VYASA University thanked Dr. M R Doreswamy for having accepted the invitation and rendering a wonderful message, befitting the occasion.. He agreed to extend full support from S-VYASA University to Government initiatives. He recalled how YOGA being introduced to WORLD from “Then Narendra (i.e. Swami Vivekananda) to Now Narendra (i.e. our Hon’ble Prime Minister Sri Narendra Modi ji) and conceptualization of “International Yoga Day”. 

    Dr. B R Ramakrishna Vice-Chancellor, SVYASA University in his brief introduction of the Chief Guest Dr M R Doreswamy said that “Dr M R Doreswamy is real yogi who has contributed immensely towards Aatmanirbhar Bharat through his untiring service in the education sector. The virtues of Dama i.e Self Restraint, Dana i.e. Charity or giving and Daya i.e. Compassion are being practiced by Dr. MRD from the past five decades and in this sense he is a true yogi he added.

  • 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.
