Stay in touch with the child in you!

By | November 14, 2019|Children's Day|

'While we try to teach children all about life, children teach us what life is all about.' We could learn a lot of things by observing them closely. Here are some of the lessons I've learnt in principle from my daughter, Prishaa :-) Be happy [...]

Every day is a new beginning!

By | November 14, 2019|Children's Day|

A child gives meaning to our life. One of the most valuable lessons that I have learnt from my six-year-old son Peramuthan is to be friends with everyone and don’t keep malice towards anyone in your heart. As adults, we often forget to follow that [...]

Winning is not everything!

By | November 14, 2019|Children's Day|

My memories with Vani, my daughter, are countless, and we share a great togetherness. The one which I am writing here is her participating in a singing contest in Warsaw, where she was schooling in Poland in grade 3. She was qualified for the singing [...]

Direct and Indirect Lessons

By | November 14, 2019|Children's Day|

My little munchkin will be seven in a few days. It feels like yesterday, when I got her home from the nursing home, six and a half years ago. If I think about the lessons she has taught me, well, I would say I have [...]

Parenthood – A Bliss!

By | November 14, 2019|Children's Day|

We wish everyone a Happy Children’s day. Ever since our kids came into our lives, it has changed. After Karthikeya and Karthika were born, my wife and I turned a new chapter of life as parents. It has been a great journey to watch them [...]

A life not lived for others is not a life

By | November 14, 2019|Children's Day|

William Wordsworth truly said, 'Child is the father of Man', While I often am the preacher at home like a typically obsessed mom, it's my girls, however, who really bring out life lessons. I am a mother of two girls, Diya (9 years ) and Gauri (2.5 yrs). [...]

‘Mother’ is a verb!

By | November 14, 2019|Children's Day|

Being a parent has been a journey of understanding my self better. It has been the most exhilarating and exasperating experience - all at the same time. I have learnt that there are no boundaries - for the depth of love I can feel and the patience [...]

There is no need of reasons to be happy!

By | November 14, 2019|Children's Day|

Being a parent is a lifelong commitment. It is a journey full of responsibilities, fun, love, and caring. Of course, knowingly or unknowingly, we tend to take the role of preacher, assuming we know everything in the world. All of a sudden, we become masters - [...]

Learn and Unlearn!

By | November 14, 2019|Children's Day|

On 3 Dec 2016, on ISB’s Mohali campus, my Wife Deepika & I experienced the toughest day of our lives. This was the day my four-year-old daughter fell from the swings and broke her left elbow into two pieces. After 6 hours of surgery, 16 [...]

Unlikely Tutors

By | November 14, 2019|Children's Day|

For parents, the demands of parenthood often obscure the little things we learn along the way. Yes, learn from those very human beings whom we constantly help with their daily essentials! Tiny they are but come with a refreshing outlook on life, priorities, and what [...]

Celebrate Every Moment!

By | November 14, 2019|Children's Day|

I don’t even know how to describe you in words without breaking into a smile at every word which is why I am writing this when nobody is watching me, lest people think of me as crazy :-) As 10 months old, you have taught [...]

Oorja – The Power Within!

By | November 14, 2019|Children's Day|

It’s amazing how we grow from carefree kids to careless teens to extra careful parents!  As I sat down, silently thinking about my journey, the blinking cursor on the blank word document transported me to the night before the day I was supposed to join [...]

Happy Children’s Day

By | November 14, 2019|Children's Day|

Being a mother is one of the greatest blessings of my life! Every moment that I spent with my son Abhiram brings nothing but Joy and Peace. One thing that I have learnt from my 1-year-old is determination. I am somewhat surprised at times by [...]

It’s ok to feel lost and not know everything

By | July 26, 2019|Student life|

Let’s admit it. School search and admissions process is a daunting task. The application process is cumbersome, complicated and detailed. Every website has a new perspective, new information, dos and donts.   It is easy to feel lost and not know what to do.   So, the question [...]

ISL – An enthralling journey!

By | March 28, 2019|Sports club|

If anyone coming to ISB thinks ISB Super League (ISL) is not a serious thing, they are highly mistaken. After placements, ISL becomes the bread and butter of almost everyone on campus – it is legit true. You would suddenly see athletes unleashing from every [...]

Sprinting – It’s not just a sport, it’s passion!

By | March 28, 2019|Sports club|

Growing up in a fast-moving city like Mumbai always kept me on my toes. I have been an athlete in school and college but post my graduation, the only sprints I did were to catch the local train to the office. Though I participated in 10km runs (mini-marathons), sprinting is a different ball game altogether. The strenuous curriculum [...]

By | February 13, 2019|Radio Club|

Radio brings along nostalgia of old days, cheap thrills of hearing your favourite song play or even hear your name play out. We cherish the same emotion, here at I@ISB - one event, one song, one show at a time. We, Class of [...]

Reforms the youth need in the nation

By | January 12, 2019|National Youth Day|

Based on my own experience, I believe, India needs two critical reforms: Technical Education and Judicial Reform. Even though we churn out high numbers of engineers and diploma graduates, they lack basic technical skills and couldn’t be employed by the industry in various occupations as [...]

Youth and Elections

By | January 12, 2019|National Youth Day|

Elections are the perfect example of unpredictability. When elections happen in the largest democracy of the world, it is indeed a big affair. Increasingly adding to the unpredictability factor is the young electorate, comprising of educated youth and first-time voters; people who not only form [...]

Invest in Education. Invest in a Better India.

By | January 11, 2019|National Youth Day|

The foundation of a nation lies in the skills and knowledge possessed by its youth. India has more than 50% of its population below the age of 25 and more than 65% below 35. These figures are indicative of the potential collective power of the [...]

While in the Navy, I gained diverse leadership experience, of both uniformed and civilian teams, in operational and technical tasks. On the verge of my transition, I was curious if, and how, these would translate into the corporate sector. Along with this, I wanted a [...]

Rapid Adoption of Blockchain Could Transform Emerging Economies into Financial Juggernauts – A Perspective

By | October 20, 2018|Alumni|

A blockchain disruption is awaiting to unfold. While blockchain’s adoption would enforce transparency, security, regulatory compliance, robustness, non-repudiation, high availability, auditability & governance, its application would curtail Non-Performing Asset (NPA), impending frauds and political interference. Banking & Financial Services Industries (BFSI) would never be the [...]
