My sad experience with the Indian Railways

I had a very bad experience with the Indian Railways in 1999...I had booked to travel to Kozhikode from  Bangalore by the Island express which had only one compartment to Mangalore that traverses via Kozhikode. I was mis informed that the only compartment was the first bogie and I also saw Mangalore written on it. My son Ganesh was barely two years can imagine..Only after the train commenced the journey does the TT tell me that it is not the first compartment but the last one...and one can imagine the confusion. With this little boy clasped in our hand we had to board the last compartment when the train stopped for a brief while at Hosur.

Who is responsible for such confusion ?   Proper Information oficers must be placed by the Railways that all kinds of right inputs are provided to passengers.

RIMS Ramaiah Institute of Management Studies

Some time back I visited RIMS Ramaiah Institute of Management Studies which is on New Bel Road closer to the BEL factory an institute for Management Studies commenced  a dozen years ago. It was initially started as a small outfit and then came up in the present location.

What I saw basically was a well ordained outfit that truly left me spell bound...adequate number of floors with good class rooms and wi-fi with offices for staff both teaching and non teaching in right measure. I even happened to be at the top of the building where from the view of the city around is breath-taking.

I have always felt that Management Education is different from many other kinds of Education systems largely because the entire subject is open ended in nature which strictly means the combined areas of Management and Business is not always bound by strict domains and absolute truths and facts but is an open science to be examined and understood in a befitting way and the science facing a metamorphosis every now and then. Most social sciences are of this nature and Management education is no exception..which simply means the more regular forms of education of being bound by a syllabus and exam being the be-all and end-all of the Education process is largely limited in the managerial context and the Education environment must indoctrinate the students largely both the tangible and the logical.

I have known Dr. Pattabhiram for many years now who put up RIMS under the overall aegis of the M S RAMAIAH FOUNDATION adheres in full measure to the doctrine that any Faculty must deliver and do absolute justice to the Student in the class and he had zero tolerance to this policy even when he was active at MSRIM.

During my visit to RIMS it was nice to have a rendezvous with my old colleagues and friends like
Mr. Sivadas Nambiar , Dr. Y Rajaram , Mr. Anil Gowda and few others.

How to get to this institute? Very Simple !From Mekhri circle come to Sadashivanagar police station and enter New BEL Road on which CPRI is located.Go straight and cross the traffic point and ahead on the left you will see Devasandra bus stop and few metres ahead on the left is RIMS.

May such institutes thrive that give and focus on giving absolute value to the student community.   contact:7892164660
