TEDxISBRBangalore Team

On the 10th of March 2018, the city of Bangalore witnessed its youth brimming at one of the youngest TEDx Event of the country- TEDxISBRBangalore, held at Jagriti Theatre in Whitefield.

The global platform of TED i.e. “Technology, Entertainment and Design” has gained superior outreach in India after the TED Talks India- Nayi Soch being hosted by Shah Rukh Khan off late. TED and TEDx have now become the Medias for sharing great ideas in a community through a simple medium of expression. They provide platforms to ideas that are contributors in nature for a certain segment of the society by people who are usually not that famous but have “IDEAS WORTH SPREADING”.

The young students of ISBR ( International School of Business and Research) in Bangalore conceptualized the whole event with a marvelous theme- Rubik’s- Find Your Right Place with sub-topics- Art, Leadership, Technology, Creativity, Leadership and Youth Expectations. They also mapped their theme to their choice of speakers who came from different walks of life and works. Their speakers included:- Anupam Nair, a Bollywood Singer; Arun Varma, the founder of BBQ Ride India; Deepak Justin, motivational speaker and life coach; Dheeraj Kolla, a Micro Artist; Isaac Kehimkar, the Butterfly Man of India; Pramod Siddagangaiah, the founder of Live Green India; Vahbiz Bharucha, the Former captain of India Women’s Rugby Team and Yathaarth Murthy, a 12 year wonder boy from Bangalore who can sing 215 National Anthems.

The event was also lined up with power packed performers like Sandeep Sharma, a budding vocalist and guitarist from ISBR Business School; Rajashekharan Parameshwaran, the Guinness World Record Holder for creating the world’s largest Edakoodam- the Indian Grandpa of the Rubik’s Cube; Swahaa Band, a Indian classical fusion band and Eliath Fernandes, a violinist, who has been performing since the age of 5. The audience seemed to be very much curious to see this 12 year old kid who could sing a whooping 215 National Anthems because this is no mean feat. And he lived up to their expectations when he coined a new term by saying, “I want to become an “Anthem”-ologist!!!”

The attendees were a curious lot of 100 that included corporate from all over the southern region of the country and students from across various schools and colleges of Bangalore. They were greeted with exciting goodies, energetic volunteers, amazing food and above all a perfect platform for networking.

The event was hosted by a young and electrifying Emcee- Sathvik Shetty who set up the tone for the whole event and entertained the audience wherever required. The event also had pre-recorded TED Videos played of some of the most amazing ideas at the TED platform, which the team felt were in alignment with their theme and speakers line-up.

Overall the event was a great success and the Team TEDxISBRBangalore signed off with the promise of living up to the benchmark that they created in their first event itself.

A CSR initiative by ISBR CSR Club on World Water Day- 22 March

“Wherever you are and whatever you do on March 22, make it about nature and water.” 

What is World Water Day?

World Water Day

Water is synonymous to life. Thus World Water Day, on 22 March every year, is about focusing attention on the importance of water. The theme for World Water Day 2018 was ‘Nature for Water’ – exploring nature-based solutions to the water challenges we face in the 21st century.

Damaged ecosystems affect the quantity and quality of water available for human consumption. Today, 2.1 billion people live without safe drinking water at home; affecting their health, education and livelihoods.

Sustainable Development Goal 6 commits the world to ensuring that everyone has access to safe water by 2030, and includes targets on protecting the natural environment and reducing pollution.

In answer to the UN call on Water Crisis,  We at ISBR- Business School- Electronics City took up the Water Crisis of our City Bangalore which is heading to Zero Day like that of Cape Town in South Africa where water is Rationed and took following action:

  1. Walkathon- ISBR in association with (Electronic City Industry Association) ELCIA organized a walkathon in Electronics City spreading the message on Water Conservation.
  2. Skit on the theme – “Nature for Water” was enacted at the Event of Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) at the the Grand Ashok to generate the social awareness. The audience consisted of around 200, encouraged the ISBR team to perform peerlessly on water conservation theme. According, to Prof Shiva Prakash, Faculty ISBR and Coordinator of the event,” Every drop is precious and through sustainable practice we can survive through the upcoming challenges.”

Mr. Manjunath, PRO of Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board, said,” Solution centric approach is necessary to combat the water crisis. It has become a necessity to change people’s attitude towards water. A sustainable livelihood can only be obtained if mankind reduces their carbon footprint and ensures dynamic conservative practices.”

The skit not only gives a social awareness but also ensures every individual should learn to save every drop being its worth as high as one’s own life.

WOMEN’S DAY CELEBRATION – 8th March 2018


International Women’s Day was celebrated on March 8th 2018 at International School of Business and Research, Bangalore. First honoured by the United Nations (UN) on March 8th during the International Women’s Year of 1975, the day represents an important opportunity for individuals, communities, and countries to celebrate the progress, great achievements, and contributions of women, raise and confront difficult questions and challenges, build broad support for women’s rights, and work towards the full and equal participation of women within all areas of society.

The Guest of honour for the event were Mrs. K.Kirthana, International Athlete, Hurdles specialist from Karnataka who is a 41-year-old athlete, who won a bronze medal in the women’s 35+ 400m hurdles in the last edition of the World Masters Athletics held in Brazil and Mrs. Reshma Mahaboob who is successfully working at a Managerial post in a multi-national company since many years. The lively program at ISBR, organized by student’s groups and the college’s cultural club, featured a wide variety of events, including a skit based on harassment against women, self-defence techniques, musical performance, poetry etc.

The event was highly important because, it provides everyone an opportunity to recognize the monumental contributions of females to our society, and it will help spread awareness amongst the youth about the same. This sentiment was shared by many of the event’s participants and attendees including the faculties, students and the guests.  One of the program’s great highlights was the skit based on harassment against women and gender inequality performed by 1st year MBA students.

Worldwide, women continue to contribute to social, economic, cultural and political achievements. Same time the progress towards the gender equality has slowed down in many places. As per the World Economic Forum prediction in the year 2014, was that it would take 2095 to achieve global gender parity, however one year later in 2015, they estimated a slowed down progress in the already glacial pace of progress. This meant that gender parity wouldn’t be achieved until 2133. Everyone – men and women – can pledge to take a concrete step to help achieve gender parity more quickly – whether to help women and girls achieve their ambitions, call for gender-balanced leadership, respect and value difference, develop more inclusive and flexible cultures or root out workplace bias. Each of us can be a leader within our own spheres of influence and commit to take practical actions to accelerate gender equality.
