Campus Talk at KC Das Commerce College sees enthusiastic participation
G Plus successfully concluded the fourth edition of Campus Talks at KC Das Commerce College on Saturday, 19th August for final year B Com students. The hour long interactive session was attended by over 100 final year students.
The speaker at the event was Dr. Abhijit Hazarika, CEO, Ayursundra. A dynamic entrepreneur, Dr. Hazarika is a trained laparoscopic surgeon with more than 15 years of experience in running trauma/surgery units and management of hospital and healthcare professionals. However, his entrepreneurial journey began when he left his job and started the venture of Ayursundra Healthcare India. After working for many years, he got tired of the monotonous routine and that’s when he called it quits on a ‘regular’ job.
The underlying objective of the event was to provide a common platform for college-going youth and to connect them to one of the most inspiring public figures of the city. The topic of discussion was ‘Skill Development and Entrepreneurship’ and the students were able to gain valuable insights from his life.
Dr. Hazarika enlightened the audiences with the most direct insights from his experiences in his professional as well as personal life. He shared his personal experience of becoming an entrepreneur, talked about the challenges faced by budding entrepreneurs in the city and also gave tips to overcome those challenges. He spoke at length about the importance of time saying, “The most important thing in life is time. It doesn’t wait for anyone, just goes on.” He further encouraged all the students present to aim at becoming job creators rather than job seekers and said that in order to succeed in life; one has to talk nicely to people. “Many things can be easily achieved if you just talk nicely to a person.”
Expressing his gratitude for the event, he said, “The biggest thing which excited me here was that on a Saturday afternoon, we received a full house. The students were very interactive and engaged in asking questions. I’d like to thank G Plus for giving me such a wonderful opportunity and I hope that G Plus organises such events more often.”
The hour long interactive session was meant to help the students draw great opinions and use them for self-growth.
A student of KC Das Commerce College expressed his opinion on the initiative saying, “It was a new experience for us - meeting such an experienced person and getting to learn from his experiences. I’d like to say that it was a brilliant initiative taken by G Plus and I’m really thankful for it.”
