“Words of wisdom and experience of ages are the two things that mankind passes on to its future generation.”
The Finance and Investment Cell, Hans Raj college in association with Richlook had organised its flagship event “ Empressa’2017” with this vision on 21st February’17.
The event started off with the lighting of the lamp ceremony by Dr. Rama, Principal; Dr. Bharat Bhushan, Convenor of FIC and Mr Montek Singh Ahluwalia, Deputy Chairman of The Planning Commission. It was followed by the session of Dr. Montek Singh Ahluwalia. The scholar gave the gathering, an insight into the recent economic developments and state of the Indian economy, addressing the queries of those who were eager to be enlightened by his knowledge.
Slated for number two was Shri Venkaiah Naidu, Minister of Urban Development of India who gave a talk on the will to achieve goals, citing examples from his own past. He also explained the recent steps taken by the government, calling demonetisation a ‘ bitter pill to cure long term illness’. His one liners like “Go, Learn, Yearn and Come Back” left us all in admiration of his intelligence.
This invigorating talk was followed by the speaker session of Mr. Rahul Tyagi, one of India’s leading white hat hacker and Vice President of Lucideus Tech. The interactive cyber-celebrity shared his immensely valuable knowledge with the crowd as to how people should secure their devices from attacks in cyberspace. He also presented a hacking gimmick by hacking one of the student’s mobile phone in less than two minutes.
The icing on the cake was the fourth and final speaker for the day “Mr. Durjoy Datta.” This multi-talented personality narrated the series of events that led him to becoming a best selling author, screenwriter and entrepreneur, of how his passion for reading and writing made him give up a lucrative job at American Express and follow his dreams. Having finished his talk, Mr. Datta signed copies of his novels for the die hard fans that had flocked to the auditorium of Hans Raj College to listen to him and also got photos clicked with each one of them.
To conclude, the variety of speakers and the myriad topics on which they spoke catered to the hearts and minds of the many present.
Quoting Mr. Shiv Rattan Goyal, Owner of Richlook and Title Sponsor for Empresa’17,-
“It is an honour to be associated with Empresa’17 of Hansraj College, the only motive to be part of association was Memories attached with College Life and how youth can transform business through right education and dedication.”
If there be a measuring rod for accomplishment, the success of Empresa’17 can be judged from the appreciation that the society garnered for organising a one -of -a- kind discussion like this.
