Shri Vinod Malhotra
The students of Jaipuria School of Business invited distinguished Civil Servant & Celebrated Author Shri Vinod Malhotra for an interactive lecture on “Leading Life with Bhagwat Gita”, which is the title of his latest book released recently. Dr SK Mahapatra, Director, welcomed Mr Malhotra who is also a member of the Board of Governors of JSB. Shri Souvik Banerjee, student of 2nd year PGDM introduced the distinguished Guest and recounted the long and illustrious career of Shri Vinod Malhotra who served in the Indian Administrative Service for 38 long years with distinction in various capacities. Mr Malhotra has authored 10 Books, most of which are bestsellers and inspired by Bhagwat Gita.
In his interactive address, Sri Malhotra explained lucidly the true meaning of “YOGA”. He explained how the internal nature should be aligned with the NATURE which is essentially our living environment. The ratio of fundamental constituents inside the human body and outside the human body in mother nature, is supposed to be equal and any variation between internal nature and external nature would cause stress, and destruction unless taken care of to restore the balance. He explained that the principles of fairness, justice and equanimity are signature elements of mother Nature. He spoke about the necessity of expressing ones views with confidence and how confidence rests upon concentration, by live demonstration through his interaction with students. He concluded his session with a gift for students, a parting advice to be “conscientious”. Elaborating the meaning of this powerful word, he advised students to be ‘diligent’ – thorough in whatever they do, to have ‘perseverance’ – keep working at until done with and, to have ‘self-discipline’ . The session ended with vote of thanks from Dr Timira Shukla, Dean, Academics.
