The Seminar started with the introduction of Mr. Ankur Gupta. A brilliant academic record in B.Pharm. (Hons.) (CGPA 9.39, unmatched over nearly 6 decades) from BITS, Pilani with an MBA from IIM-Ahmedabad followed. Weaning himself away from corporate life 30 years back, he has since led a Bohemian lifestyle.
The next lecture was conducted by Mr. Sunil Ramamurthy. It started with the introduction of Mr. Sunil Ramamurthy by Vaidehi. Mr. Sunil Ramamurthy is a commerce graduate with a diploma in business management from Mumbai. While working in the corporate scenario for more than a decade, Mr Sunil felt the need to study the ancient scriptures of Vedanta. Vedanta teaches one the method of right life and living. He studied under the able guidance of Swami Parthasarathy for 13 years. His deep understanding of the vedanta principles put in contemporary language and a simple presentation makes his talks very interesting. He ensures that there is a paradigm shift towards a positive way of thinking and overall personality growth. In his lecture, which was very inspiring, motivated the people to contribute to the greatest cause of the society, to do something good in our life so that we can proudly say, if we have to die this moment we would die happily. This was followed by snacks for all the participants and volunteers. There was an exhibition displaying various handicraft articles made by the members of Nina Foundation. The speakers were felicitated along with all the stakeholders – Ms. Neenu Kewlani for her national NASEOH award, our student Jaideep Rajhans for his research achievement, Madhuri Bhide for the co-ordination and all the students for their enthusiastic support. The session ended with a vote of thanks by Vaidehi.
