Jaipuria Indore explores the link between spirituality and management with famed author achal rangaswamy
In its continuous mission to bring a wide spectrum of opinions and perspectives to its student managers, Jaipuria Institute of Management, Indore invited Achal Rangaswamy, the celebrated author of books like ‘Beyond the Uncharted Landscape’ and ‘Time is Money’, on the 1st of September 2012. With his trademark wit, Achal Rangaswamy brought in a profound perspective to management in his address to the audience at Jaipuria Indore.
“When I passed out of St. Stephen’s college in New Delhi, I just wanted to ride a ‘Bullet’. I went about asking people, ‘Will you give me a Bullet to ride?’ till a British guy – the sales head of a multinational company – said ‘I will give you a Bullet, but you’ll have to work!’ The deal thus struck, he gave me a Bullet to ride, a salary of Rs. 200 per month, and an assignment in the interiors of Rajasthan. I met all kinds of people, visited many places and enjoyed my work as well. I did 200,000 kms on that Bullet.”
Achal Rangaswamy has captured his 33 years of rich work experience – 22 of them as the Head of Sales and Marketing – in a book titled ‘Beyond the Uncharted Landscape’.
“Had I named my book conventionally, I would’ve actually called it ‘What Indian B-Schools Need to Teach’. This book is co-published with the Sri Aurobindo Society, Pondicherry. They felt that despite being a management book, it has a highly spiritual current’.
Achal Rangaswamy strongly believes that Sales or Marketing Heads today focus too much on their watch, laptop or mobile. He asserts that this is not how leaders behave; leadership is not about demonstrating how much you can do by yourself, it’s about motivating and overseeing others to get the job done.
“A company is like a machine, and a leader is a component of it just like many others. It is not ‘where’ you are in the organisation, but ‘what’ you are to the organisation that matters; and once you realise this, you will give your best.”
Achal encouraged the youngsters of Jaipuria Indore to always follow the calling of their heart.
Jaipuria’s IMP – Chisel teams carve out some glowing reports.
Jaipuria Institute of Management students participating in the Industry Mentorship Program (IMP – Chisel) have carved out an excellent name for themselves among employers.
Under the IMP – Chisel program, students interact directly with industry, working on live projects for about 15 days per trimester along with peer, industry and faculty mentors.
This direct hands-on experience in industry allows students to put their classroom learning to the test with practical experience, helping turn them into management professionals.
Four businesses which recently took on Jaipuria students under the IMP – Chisel program had nothing but good to say about the experience.
Sayaji Hotels Limited, which operates a restaurant called Kebabsville, asked students to tackle the problem it faced with customer wait times.
Kebabsville has a seating capacity of around 200, but during weekends the traffic increases greatly and because seating can’t be increased due to space constraints, the average waiting period for customers grows.Read more
“Jaipuria Institute of Management was an excellent choice for me, not just because of its credentials as a B-school, but also because it is a great ‘finishing’ school.”
Ekta Kumari joined Jaipuria Institute of Management as part of the 2012-14 batch. Ekta has a meticulous approach to life and believes in setting priorities in everything she does. With an impressive 78% in her Bachelors’ from West Bengal University of Technology (WBUT), one might’ve expected Ekta to be inclined towards an Operations or IT profile after passing out from Jaipuria Institute of Management, Indore. Surprisingly, Ekta has different plans.
“When I pass out from Jaipuria Indore, I would like to be placed in an HR profile. You see, organisations that are built around technology need Human Resource managers who understand technology so as to be able to acquire and retain the right kind of talent. This is the reason why I intend specializing in HR at Jaipuria Indore.”
Ekta believes that Jaipuria Institute of Management will empower her with the necessary communication and soft skills to become a successful HR manager.
“In terms of faculty, infrastructure and technology-driven classes, Jaipuria Indore is amongst the best B-school brands in the whole of central India. But my choice of B-school had a lot to do with my career aim of moving into the field of HR. Jaipuria Institute of Management made an excellent choice for me, not just because of its credentials as a B-school, but also because it is a great ‘finishing’ school. Since I come from a small town called Giridih (in Jharkhand), it was not really easy for me to open up to people from day one. But the faculty members of Jaipuria Indore play the dual role of educators and mentors to perfection. They help you come out of your shell.”
Ekta feels that from the Freshers’ Party to Encore, every day at Jaipuria Institute of Management is full of energy and action.Read more
“Everyone from family to friends were in two minds about my decision to become a part of the first batch of a brand new b-school. But i knew it was not just any other new b-school; it was Jaipuria Institute of Management, Indore!”
PrathamInaniis amongst the first few students at Jaipuria Indore to be placed. Pratham has been placed as Management Trainee – Marketing, at Polyplex Corporation Limited, the world’s fourth largest manufacturer of thin polyester film, with manufacturing facilities across India, Thailand, and Turkey.
“The sheer number of companies coming over for on-campus placements at Jaipuria Institute of Management can leave one over-awed. I think it was the right mix of an Engineering background and a Marketing specialisation at Jaipuria Indore that helped me crack this job”, says a happyPratham.
“The credit for my placement goes entirely to my faculty and my peers at Jaipuria Institute of Management, Indore. Without their guidance, mentoring and cooperation, I don’t think I would’ve had the KSA (Knowledge, Skill and Attitude) to crack the Interview.”
His placement with a company of the stature of Polyplex has come as a hugeconfidence-booster for Pratham and a source of pride for his parents.
“I still remember how everyone from family to friends were in two minds about my decision to become a part of the first batch of a brand new B-school. I could understand their concern. After all, a postgraduation in Management is the final step in education for most of us. But I knew that it was not just any other new B-school that I was going to; it was Jaipuria Institute of Management! I had the confidence in my abilities as well as Jaipuria Institute of Management. I knew that we both would prove to the world that being new or unknown is not risky.”
Pratham Inani strongly believes that being from the first batch of Jaipuria Indore has brought him good luck. “Brand Jaipuria, like me, is Pratham. I’ve always had – and will always have – great trust in Brand Jaipuria.”Read more
