Retro means recent past. It is often known as the “Golden Era”. ISBR brought back the magic of the retro era by celebrating retro night wherein the journey of famous actors and actresses were re lived through songs, dance, decoration, and quizzes in the amphitheater of our college.
Students of ISBR were excited to re-live the past and have the retro feel. Everyone was dressed in retro style. There were a lot of performances on the stage starting from dance performances to retro quiz. As every occasion in ISBR is incomplete without a ramp walk where beautiful girls and handsome boys of ISBR set the stage on fire.
The past became a part of the present and created a history at ISBR.
The 15th November 2014 was marked as a very memorable day in the history of ISBR, when the students of ISBR Case Study Club gave an excellent presentation on Mr. Narendra Modi.
The program began with a motivational speech by one of the students named “The Bhavin Shah” who is said to be the youngest motivational speaker of India. He shared his mantra for success with everyone. He told, “Utilize the time which you call free time, only then you would know the value of time”. It was lesson to be learnt by one and all.
The event was followed by a presentation where the presenter spoke about good governance model, with facts and figures he showed how Gujrat grew from nothing to everything, how it became a role model on a worldwide basis. The presentation also spoke about the state where BJP won the highest number of seats in the General Election 2014 and also how and why Narendra Modi became the face of BJP.
Every success is incomplete without a team hence when someone speaks about Narendra Modi, it is inevitable that few prominent political figures needs to be mentioned. Hence there was a presentation which said that one of the most important reasons behind Narendra Modi’s victory were the “four pillars” namely Arun Jaitley, Nitin Gadkari, Amit Shah and Rajnath Singh, who stood by Modi like a rock.
The event was finally concluded by a sensational video on Narendra Modi which was not only inspiring but also conveyed that India is ready for a change….
Blood donation is the most valued service to mankind. Nothing is comparable to the preciousness of human blood. “The gift of blood is the gift of life”. There is no substitute for human blood. Blood cannot be manufactured – it can only come from generous donors.”

The donors went through a series of medical checkups before donating blood and were given refreshments and a certificate of appreciation for this service to humanity.
The event was a huge success with a large number of students and teachers turning up for the cause.
Diwali the festival of lights was celebrated on 23rd October at ISBR Bangalore. The event of the auspicious occasion was supported by the CSR and other members of the college.
The members of the club went out to reach all those people who are not so privileged to celebrate Diwali or any such festivals. All the peons, securities and other staffs of ISBR who work for the ISBR family saw the light of happiness coming their way when the CSR club took the initiative to distribute fire crackers and other sweets among them and their family.
Not only that ISBR but also the other slum areas nearby showed their gratitude towards these same members when their little children got the gifts of crackers which almost every normal child of their age demands or long for.
ISBR Bangalore is blessed with a club like that of CSR which tries to reach out to everyone at every corners of the society and helps them to bring about a smile on their face with every little activity they can come up with for the society.

This panel discussion helped in eradicating all the doubts, the students had, regarding their role as an MBA in the IT industry. It enlightened the students that no matter, whatever degree they hold, the most important aspect that an industry looks for in an individual is, their ability to adapt.
The “mantra” that echoed in unison at the end was- “The only way to succeed in life is, not to be afraid of failure and to aim high.”
