“Catch the right opportunity in life, never give up” said – Mr. Manish Gupta renowned Motivational Speaker to over 300 MBA-PGDM Students

Mr. Manish Gupta, who is beacon light to his followers and acknowledged business and life coach; recently conducted life skill session at Suryadatta Institute of Management, 300 MBA PGDM students were present.

Prof.Dr. Sanjay B Chordiya while introducing the Mr. Manish Gupta to students said that he is family member of Suryadatta Group. The lessons shared by him about his own experiences in the life will be of great importance to the students as they too can become wiser from such experiences. He further announced that Mr. Manish Gupta will interact with Suryadatta students more frequently so as to add sparkle in their journey towards being successful professional.

Mr. Manish Gupta was participating in the workshop, “Junoon- adding Enthusiasm in our lives and effective goal setting”.

During his address he unveiled the myriad experiences of his life and explained the students how he was educated and enlightened from each experience to raise the bar for achieving next objective of his life. He asked the students if he could do so and become a successful person why not each of the students follow the same suit?

Confidence and Hard-Work are the required characteristics for success. Only in the dictionary, the word PROFIT comes before WORK. In real life Profit always comes after Work that too Hard-Work. While facing the challenge it should be faced with smile as smile make things easier. Smile is master key to unlock the door of the journey towards success. We are blessed just only with one life and whatever we have to perform is to be performed NOW only. Wherever there are gaps in life, fill them up, you will be the force to be reckoned with. Everything can happen in life second time or many times except the Time. Cycle of the time can not be reversed  by anyone. You are the owner of your own time. You have to take the responsibility of each minute spent and utilized by you.  It is your future’s ownership and it is 100% yours. Those who take such ownership in their hands, never blame others or find the excuses for the failures. Time management is nothing but life management. Therefore do not allow the time to sleep away from your fist and get it wasted. Inculcate the habit of reaching your goal IN Time and not ON Time.

He also stressed to have lots of enthusiasm and determination while chasing our goal. Energy leads to enthusiasm and enthusiasm leads to vibrancy. He quoted Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Nothing great was ever achieved in life without enthusiasm.” 

He further explained the Growth Cycle in the life of professional personality. The Growth Cycle is divided in the four phases. The first phase is Learning phase. He advised the students to choose the first company of their career where they can learn a lot. Leaning phase is followed by the Leadership phase. The leadership phase can be lived well if one has leaned well. Then comes the Risk phase.  Risk taking ability is proportionate to the leadership ability and Success is proportionate to the magnitude of the risk. However he cautioned that it not be blind risk. Risk phase leads to Wealth phase, both materialistic and spiritual.

After his lecture the students interacted with him. Many of them asked him how to get rid of inferiority complex or stage fright. He advised students not to run away from their weaknesses but to face them boldly. He told them to develop a positive, ‘Who cares?’ attitude (on others reaction).

Students extracted a promise from Mr. Manish Gupta for his more visits to boost their morals during their this phase of life which is on threshold between Learning and Leadership.

Marissa G, Member of Rotary International visits Suryadatta on occasion of celebrating Suryadattas Rotract Clubs, Bavdhan Campus Second Foundation Year

Enlightens students on “GLOBAL TECH TRENDS”

  • At a talk to Suryadatta business school students, Marissa G. who is in India on behalf of Rotary International from Chicago, spoke on “GLOBAL TECH TRENDS”.
  • She identified 3 trends - “Cloud computing”, “E-Commerce and Mobile Applications”, and “User Experience Design”


Marissa G. spoke about the work life in American corporations, with laptops complemented by the iPad and the moving of all data from the PC to the cloud for accessing from anywhere via the Smartphone and iPad. She highlighted the importance of good verbal English communication skills needed during videoconferencing among global team members. It is important to have good communication skills as there is the need for quick and prompt responses in all business situations while dealing with geographically dispersed colleagues and business partners.

At the occasion Marissa G., member of Rotary International from Chicago said, “Almost all major IT companies are already offering certain products and services over the cloud and a Gartner report mentions that by 2015 20% of non-IT Global 500 companies will be cloud service providers. So vast is the market for these innovative delivery platforms.”

Marissa G. also talked about QRcodes (Quick Response Codes). She pointed out that QRcodes are becoming pervasive and all businesses are getting QR (Quick Response) codes for easier tracking in various apps especially to facilitate e-commerce. In US for a product you capture the picture of a QRcode and competitor’s prices for identical products are flashed so the shopper can choose quickly. With augmented reality applications, by 2015 companies will generate 50% web sales through social presence and mobile applications.

She remarked that soon ‘User Experience Design’ will be critical as the website which is easy to use will be the one you will revisit. Ninety percent corporate applications will be supported on personal devices like mobiles and iPads. All this will encourage collaboration and communication with others to increase knowledge and understanding.

A collaborative work style with use of E-groups to keep oneself updated on the latest happenings in your domain and an integrated access to Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter was stressed. Before any meeting these resources are used to be better prepared for the business interaction. Keeping oneself updated with using the latest technology was illustrated by the example of how she realized that iPad opened a whole new world to her when she started using it after seeing that even older colleagues had mastered how to use it!

Learning is an ongoing process, which has nothing to do with age. Whether you are four or you are forty, you are always keen to learn something new. Drawing inspiration from this, Suryadatta had launched its 2nd batch of English speaking & Computer awareness programs offered voluntarily to Auto Rickshaw Drivers & Housewives free of cost.

This training programme for a batch of 80 persons, comprising 40 auto rickshaw drivers and 40 housewives started in January 2011 and completed successfully on June 24, 2011.

On this occasion, Mr Sanjay Chordiya, Chairperson, Suryadatta Group of Institutes, said, “In the 21st century, knowledge of English and to be able to converse in English is a necessity rather than the need of time. The response to the programme was tremendous from both rickshaw-drivers and housewives and we are awarding certificates to 80 candidates of this programme.”

Certificates were distributed to those who have successfully completed the programme at the hands of Shri Baba Adhav, President of Rickshaw Panchayat & Shri Jayant Umranikar, former Pune Police commissioner and Shri Deepak Shikarpur, who were present as Chief Guest and Guest of Honour respectively.

Shri Jayant Umranikar said, “Women are the backbone of family system yet their education remains neglected most of the time. Now days English has become common language for communication. Dr Sanjay Chordiya has always been ahead in undertaking such social initiatives. This initiative by an education institute will help our society go ahead and keep pace with time.”

Shri Baba Adhav said, “Rickshaw drivers always aspire to learn these skills but most of the times cannot make it either due to financial or time constraints, or even both. But by offering these courses free of charge, Suryadatta has not only provided a helping hand to them but also awakened their learning spirit. I congratulate Suryadatta for this innovative and useful activity.”

Shri Deepak Shikarpur said, “With globalization everything is becoming high tech” English speaking and Computer learning is the need of the hour. And hence Suryadatta started this initiative of offering this training to various communities of society in a row. Suryadatta is getting overwhelming response to it.

A housewife is life and blood of the family. Her role in the family is as same as the heart and brain in the human body. A learned and trained housewife can bring in health, happiness, soundness and satisfaction to the family in all the respects and facets of life. One such family into many such families will go a long way in building a developed society and nation. Suryadatta has taken one such initiative to train and impart learning to this vital element of the society.
Contents of the course were as follows,

The English Speaking course comprised of:

1. Basic Grammar
2. Words and Sentences formation for daily usage
3. Writing English with different situational examples
4. How to speak clearly so that the other person understands

While the IT/ Computer skills course comprised of:

1. Introduction to computers
2. MS office: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Paint, Notepad, Calculator, Calendar
3. Basic Usage of computers for office and home

In the past, Suryadatta has trained more than 2000 school children, 120 Auto Rickshaw Drivers, 500 women and 100 senior citizens. Senior citizens started communicating with their children abroad with the help of knowledge of Computer, Internet and English language. They also started talking to their grand children’s in English, which was up till then little difficult for them.

Auto rickshaw drivers who completed the training in first batch, are now working as a guide to the passengers coming to Pune, and can communicate with them in English. Taking inspiration from them, the second batch had enrolled prior to completion of the training program of first batch itself. And on completion of first batch, second batch followed immediately.

 Defining education and environment as the pillars of a budding society, the Suryadatta Group of Institutes group participated in a rural socio initiative of rice crop plantation in a rural area of Vinzar, Dist Velhe close to Pune organized by Vanarai. This program is a part of Suryadatta Edu Socio Initiative where around 400 students of Management, IT and Hotel Management of the Suryadatta Group of Institutes executed this unique and enriching program of Rice Crop Plantation in association with Vanarai which offers support to farmers of the country. The students dedicatedly worked throughout the day and planted rice crop in 40 farms in a single day to help the farmers.

This initiative intended to offer support to the farmers of the district and also aimed to create a sense of social responsibility among the students of the institute. Students from Suryadatta came together to take this initiative forward and extended a helping hand to the farmers for rice plantation.

Monsoon acts as a supporting season in this environment for the growth of rice but due to lack of manpower, these farmers were unable to carry out plantation across the farms. A group of about five to seven students worked in consultation with farmers for trans plantation of rice. Farmers and the villagers were highly appreciative of the efforts by the students and were thankful to the college for the contribution.

The biggest challenge before the media is to ensure quality content considering the changing tastes of readers.

Mr Phalke said that journalists should not report just for the sake of it but should be objective and concerned. As the social structure has largely become media-centric, journalism should not remain only a profession. A journalist is responsible for overall development of the society. One does not become successful overnight. It requires tremendous hard-work and will power to achieve success in this field. She/he does not become a journalist because of her/his degrees but because of her/his virtues! The responsibilities of journalists have increased manifold because society has become media-centric.
