The need for ERP experts in India - Professor M P Sebastian



He is also the creator of the Wordview column, an editorial cryptic crossword puzzle published weekly by the international daily The Mint. Nitesh was born with a condition called scoliosis, which leads to bone weakness throughout the body.

Within three months of being in print, her book found its way to the bestseller lists of The Hindu, Indian Express and India Today. Kavitha regularly shares the stage with some of the biggest names in South Indian music and has performed at international stage shows in Dubai, Singapore and Kuwait. With the motto of 'Live for Others', the SSG organizes a number of programs for the support staff at IIMK.

This year's events were marked by 'Utdryk 2010', a cultural event with the theme 'Yes, we care'. Aarogya, a health camp was conducted in the month of September for the benefit of the students, faculty and support staff of the campus. The students get an opportunity to show their social sensitivity, which gives them great satisfaction, besides giving the fair workers an opportunity to be trained by some of the country's brightest minds.

The response received from the PGP volunteer teachers has been outstanding and their commitment to the cause has been unwavering. This has meant that classes are held three times a week in four shifts to accommodate the schedules of the night canteen and mess workers. The mess workers have responded positively to the initiative, which can be attributed to both their enthusiasm and the efforts of the PGP students.

Students volunteered to bring support staff and their families together for an evening of fun. Talented students participated, and games were also organized for the youngest and the oldest. The support staff and their families were a wonderful audience and participated enthusiastically with karaoke singing, children dancing and even a harmonium recital.

Entries were wonderfully heartwarming and were quickly snapped up at auction by the PGP group. Partners for the event were Vasan Eye Care and D B Lulu's laboratory, two leading healthcare providers from Calicut city. The camp served as a good opportunity to measure overall medical fitness levels, with a basic test package that included Eye Examination, Blood Sugar, Cholesterol, Blood Pressure and Hemoglobin Test.

In connection with the camp, a stall with handmade products from the pain and palliative care (PPC) patients was also set up. The sale reached a figure of Rs 13810, all of which went to the PPC welfare fund. Despite hectic schedules, the camp saw a good turnout of more than 160 participants from the students and teachers who helped make the event self-sufficient.

For most, the event was seen as a welcome opportunity to measure the toll that hectic school life had taken on their bodies. Another platform is the canteen workers' evening classes, where student volunteers teach the canteen workers. The student community of IIM Kozhikode continues to look for such opportunities to make big and small differences in the society around them.
