Mangaluru, Feb 20: Post graduate department of Business Administration at AIMIT (St Aloysius College), organized a day-long undergraduate fest- ‘Inception 2018 - Decode Your Destiny’, on February 19. The inaugural session began through the prayerful symphony of invocation by college choir and a breath taking video presentation on management.
Dr Yusuf A Kumble graced the occasion as the chief guest and inaugurated ‘Inception 2018’. The chief guest who is the managing director and renowned interventional cardiologist of Indiana Hospital in his address to the students and participants enlightened and emphasized on listening to the inner voice to decode our destiny. He, as a person, always focused on being the best in which ever profession he takes up and aimed at rendering maximum service to the people. He mentioned that one must have a dream which is realistic and stresses that hard work is the key to success. He decoded his destiny with a blend of team work, hard work, passion, consistent effort, competing against situation and not with rivals or peers and by carefully choosing the competencies. Royce Baretto, the faculty coordinator welcomed the gathering, the student co-ordinator Goldin D’Souza gave the bird’s eye view of ‘Inception 2018’ and Ashley D’Souza delivered the vote of thanks.
Fr Denzil Lobo, the director of AIMIT provided his insights on leadership and motivation with a very simple yet effective quote ‘Success is when you look back at your life and memories make you smile’. Then he emphasized the importance of positive attitude with the example of people who overcame major disabilities in life and made a conscious choice to be successful and now they stand as inspirational figures for us all. He focused on the importance of time management with a few questions and the benefits that provides to individuals. He gave the example of neurons and computers stating that human beings only use 5% of their thinking capacity and that we should work hard to raise the bar for ourselves.
