Topic: Save me call by a great man:

He spoke on the basic philosophy of Gandhi. Swawalamban and Swadeshi is investment, Mitvatya is saving. Saving should be as per the philosophy of Gandhi.

Govt. imposes tax because it has to run the country. If the govt. expenditure increases then interest rate will increase. How government manages all expenditure? Firstly, by increasing the taxes and secondly, by increasing the interest rate. He explained the article of a newspaper that says, “I don’t want to invest in government securities”. 

Economy is in the dark shade. But if we see the positive side then we can prove that our economy is the highest growing economy in the world after China. If the economy is giving return on investment, then only people invest in economy.

Risk taking is an integral part of business and life, but so few people know how to manage it properly.  The word risk has a slightly negative connotation to it — it implies danger, tension, and possible loss.  But risk also has a positive side, the chance of hitting a big win, of getting more on the back side than you invest on the front side.

On 5.8.12 – Prof. Sabahayata Jaisinghani (2:00 – 3:00 p.m.) gave a presentation on Happiness. 

 

 Happiness is a psychological or emotional condition of well-being characterized by optimistic or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to strong delight. Happiness is a fuzzy concept and can mean numerous things to numerous people. Part of the challenge of a science of happiness is to recognize diverse concepts of contentment, and where pertinent, divide them into their components. Happiness is the unending expedition of life, the unquenchable thirst and the greedy hunger of all human being. Happiness is what we all hunt for, what we long for. But can such ecstasy be nothing but a mysterious state of mind, which is here one flash and gone the next, or is such a positive outlook attainable for a lifetime? Conceivably it is, it just is.

On 6.8.12 – Prof. Ratna Juneja (2:00 – 3:00 p.m.) gave a presentation on Anger Management. 

Anger is a completely normal, usually healthy, human emotion. But when it gets out of control and turns destructive, it can lead to problems—problems at work, in your personal relationships, and in the overall quality of your life. And it can make you feel as though you're at the mercy of an unpredictable and powerful emotion. The instinctive, natural way to express anger is to respond aggressively. Anger is a natural, adaptive response to threats; it inspires powerful, often aggressive, feelings and behaviors, which allow us to fight and to defend ourselves when we are attacked. A certain amount of anger, therefore, is necessary to our survival. Anger can be suppressed, and then converted or redirected. This happens when you hold in your anger, stop thinking about it, and focus on something positive.
