Today I visited an Institute of repute and met the Director. Pandit Nehru and Dr B. C Roy laid the Foundation stone of the Institute in early 50s with the dream that social welfare will ensure more prosperity and consequential growth of business. Today the Institute has not reached anywhere near these dream. To the contrary I was provided in the name of vision, mision and road-map a scenario which I found to be depressing. Any area of interest I discussed was in the womb of future. The vison is obfuscated, mission lacking clarity, road-map hotch-poth. The Social welfare stream does not address needs of Rural Development, Nothing on the Millenium Development Goals, Business Mangement does not have any industry interaction and updation of curriculum based on industry requirement and present environment. I felt very saddened and deppressed that a premier Institution with so much potential is just fading into irrelevance because the peopel who could have taken it from height to height are so satisfied and compalcent with what they are doing that they has just stopped even listening to new ideas.
I FELT LIKE SCREAMING MY HEADS OFF BUT WHO WILL HEAR?????
