A smart and responsible city that Bangalore is, the people at Smart Vote Campaign and B.PAC are taking it a notch higher. Every citizen today needs to realize the importance of their vote in developing India, and to give them a hand at this, the students of ISBR joined them in full spirit to make their voices heard.
Street plays showcased by ISBR students depicted the present election scenario, the mindset of the country’s youth towards the election and the ingrained ‘who gives a care’ attitude was enacted to wake up the educated working class from their slumber.
Flash mobs, the latest rage with the young was also performed by the students of ISBR, to get the crowd grooving and interested. The foot tapping patriotic music choreographed by the students themselves was an instant rage.
The skits and the flash mob was performed over a span of two days at various food courts at the Infosys Bangalore campus pulling in huge crowds and lots of applause from the Infosys employees.
Day 2 event was followed by a panel discussion at the Narayan Murthy convention centre. The panel included big names like Retd Supreme court Justice Mr. Hegde, Mr. Prithvi, Head of Smart Vote Campaign at Bangalore, Mr Jayraj, Retd. Commissioner of Bangalore and Mr. R.K. Mishra, the winner of TOI lead India Initiative. A discussion of over an hour with engaged the young audience and gave them lots of food for thought.
A special thanks to Mr. Manas Kumar and Mrs. Suja Warrior for involving the ISBrians for such an amazing initiative.
The students of ISBR were taken on a day trip to the Mysore Infosys campus as a part of their industry visit. A three hour joy ride from Bangalore to Mysore was full of fun, frolic and excitement as the students geared up to check out the world renowned training facility of Infosys.
Spread over 100 of acres, the facility has everything you can think of, a swimming pool, bowling alley, multiplex to name a few.
Infosys believes a lot in CSR, therefore it invites students from institutes around the place to be a part of their ‘sparks’ program initiative wherein they introduce students to corporate way of working and educating them about the world happenings .
After the sparks program, we were taken around the campus for a tour. The campus sure is a treat to the eyes.
After lots of photographs and quick lunch, we got back into the bus and headed back to Bangalore. All in all, a trip worth remembering.
In the series of guest lectures happening at ISBR, we had a renowned author who came in to our campus like a whiff of fresh air and fresh thoughts. She spoke on a dynamic and engaging topic ”Energy-Model’ for achieving success in life”
Her persona is lit from within and she spreads her knowledge and understanding of life wherever she holds court. The portfolio of her various skills and experiences has empowered her to become a body, mind and spirit doctor.
She has contributed articles to The Times of India, HT Horizons, Advanc’edge MBA, Life Positive, People and Management, Your Spiritual Revolution, Go-Getter, Eternal Solutions, Indian Age, Wedding Vows, The New Woman, and Atelier Diva; besides managing various blogs. She also translated books from Hindi to English and edited them.
Her talk with the students at ISBR ranged from what success means to each one of us and how our surrounding environment has such an impact on us whether things are living and non living.
What we give in to the environment, is what we get back from it, the energies of the universe play their hand on us. The universe’s positive energy is a gift to all of us and we need to make the most of it.
Keeping the audience engaged in breathing exercises, mental image modeling and asking them views on various things that motivate them and why, she cleared a lot of air around the delusions the students had. It was guest lecture worth remembering.
