I just finished the first leg of my teaching at BIM (Bharatidasan Institute of Management), Trichy. I try and steer away from traditional PPT driven teaching and instead choose to tap into the collective knowledge of the students. Before teaching a subject, the entire class is broken into small grops to do assignments on the subject. Because most of the students come with work expereince, this helps them to share their learning on the subject. The then share their lessons to the rest of their classmates. This gives me the perfect opportunity to step in to add key points on the subject. Here are photos from one of the many group discussions we had in the Digital Marketing Class. More Photos
It was our first Finger Millets harvest at Vaksana Farms.(Third harvest overall, after Rice and Black Grams). We grew finger millets (or Kezhvaragu in Tamil) in 1.5 acres of land. This was primarily for our consumption and the idea is to grow our own good. A very enthusiastic and hardworking team of volunteers from The Weekend Agriculturist helped us in partly harvesting the crop. Here are photos from the harvest. More Photos
We celebrated my Dad’s birthday at our farm in a unique way. Instead of a cake, we had a freshly harvested water melon for him to cut. It was great to have the entire team of farm volunteers sing the birthday song and wish him. It made his day!
If you have anything to do with App development, don’t miss this event. The first edition in Hyderabad was a huge success. This time, AppFest 2013 is happening at IIM Ahmedabad.
Got featured in today’s front page of Deccan Chronicle’s supplement. This was an emotional moment for me. The last time I was on the same front page was in a very negative story around TEDx. Proves that life will have its ups and downs and we need to take both in our stride.The online link to the story in high resolution is here http://www.dc-epaper.com/PUBLICATIONS/DC/DCC/2013/07/04/ArticleHtmls/Explore-travel-and-enjoy-life-04072013112021.shtml?Mode=1
