Humility is a must in social work, Dr. Sudarshan

Process is important while the outcome is not in our hands. There may be failures, let's not get obsessed. We need to learn to have humility when we are in the social work, said Dr. Sudarshan.

Dr. H. Sudarshan, Hon.Secretary, Karuna Trust - VGKK, BR Hills visited IDF Mumbai on 9th Jan 2010 and interacted with the students of Xavier Institute of Management and Entrepreneurship (XIME-Bangalore) and Institute of Technology Management Business School (ITM Kharghar, Navi Mumbai).

A group of ten students - Gayathri, Glenson, Aakarsh and Indira from XIME and Tejpreet, Pallavi, Neha, Dattasen, Karan and Ranjita from ITM - interacted with Dr.Sudarshan on the current social scenario in India. The students also got an insight into the workings of Dr.Sudarshan for the uplift of the Soliga tribes in BR Hills in Karnataka.

Dr. Sudarshan touched upon various social issues including corruption, medical ethics and social securities. He said while technology can transform the country, management is also important. The B-students should come forward and help in making a socio-business model for the NGOs.

Karuna Trust has been recently taken by a B-school as a Model. These need to be replicated.

Dr. Sudarshan shared his work experiences in India particularly in BR Hills, Arunachal Pradesh, Gujarat and Andhra Pradesh.

Dr. Sudarshan congratulated the national work of Dr. ARK Pillai and his team in Indian Development Foundation

It was a fantastic learning experience to interact with such a great social reformer of India, the students expressed their with happiness.
