Telangana Guv calls for upholding values of Constitution


Hyderabad, Nov 26 | Telangana Governor Tamilisai Soundararajan on Friday called upon people to rededicate to the cause of upholding ideals, rights and values enshrined in the Indian Constitution and strive to create a strong, secure, prosperous and self-reliant India.

Addressing the Constitution Day programme at Raj Bhawan, she conveyed greetings to the citizens on Constitution Day and paid tributes to Father of the Indian Constitution Dr B.R. Ambedkar and members of the Constituent Assembly.

“I express my reverence and gratitude to the Father of the Indian Constitution Bharat Ratna Dr B.R. Ambedkar for making our Constitution a reality,” she said.

She also paid tributes to all members of the Constituent Assembly for their immense contributions and pointed out that they discussed and debated thousands of amendments to the previous draft.

“By celebrating Constitution Day, we are paying rich tributes to the memory and contribution of members of the Constituent Assembly,” she said and described the Constitution as the main force for the unity, integrity and unique diversity of the country.

“For more than seven decades, despite many challenges, the Indian Constitution proved to be supreme in ensuring the country’s rock solid democratic foundation,” the Governor said.

She thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his cabinet for their decision to initiate celebrating November 26 as Constitution Day in 2015. She noted that the day marks a major milestone in the journey and evolution of the country as a sovereign power.

Stating that the country is still in the midst of a Covid-19 pandemic, the Governor appealed to all citizens to take vaccines.

“Please be careful. We have not got rid of Corona yet. Follow all precautions like wearing a mask, washing hands and maintaining social distance,” physician-turned politician Soundararajan said.

The Governor said people were still hesitant to take vaccines. “I am worried about the people who are not taking a second dose of vaccination. If you are not taking the second dose, the first dose is useless,” she said.

The Governor mentioned the argument that despite vaccination, one may get Covid. “You may get it even after vaccination but it will be a mild infection like a common cold,” she said.

She claimed that a survey has shown that 99 per cent people admitted in ICU were non-immunised.

Chief Justice of Telangana High Court Justice Satish Chandra Sharma said that November 26 every year is celebrated as Constitution Day to commemorate the adoption of the Constitution of India and to highlight the importance of the Constitution and the ideas of Ambedkar.

He said the system of life, livelihood and culture of every citizen of India is governed by the Constitution. He noted that the working of the Constitution also rests with the bar and judiciary in the larger measure.

He observed that technology can not substitute for knowledge and wisdom of judges but it helps in improving the judicial system.

“It is the duty of every citizen to contribute to the efficient and improved working of the Constitution and the institutions created under it. Let us resolve to rededicate ourselves to preserve and protect supremacy of the Constitution and rule of law,” he added.

State ministers K. T. Rama Rao, Prashanth Reddy, Satyavathi Rathore, judges of the High Court and senior officials attended the event.

Does MBA really help in getting a better job offer ?

Does MBA really help in getting a better job offer ?

Most students pursuing an MBA come with the sole objective of having a decent job offer or a promotion in the existing job soon after completion of the MBA. And most of them take loans to pursue this career dream. According to a recent survey by education portal  74% MBA 2022-24 aspirants said they would opt for education loans.

There are exceptional cases like those seeking master’s degree or may have a family business to take care of or an entrepreneurial venture in mind. But the exception cases are barely 1%. For the rest 99%, a management degree is a ticket to a dream job through campus placements or leap towards career enhancements. Stakes are high as many of them quit their jobs which essentially means loss of 2 years of income, apprehension and uncertainty of the job market. On top of that, the pressure to pay back the education loans. Hence the returns have to be high. There is more than just the management degree. Colleges need to ensure that they offer quality management education which enables them to be prepared for not just the demands of recruiters and for a decent job but also to sustain and achieve, all along their career path.

  • So, what exactly are the B Schools doing to prepare their students for the job market and make them industry ready ?
  •  Are B schools ready to deliver and prepare the future business leaders to cope up with the disrupted market ?  

These are the two key questions every MBA aspirant needs to ask, check and validate before filling the MBA application forms of management institutes. And worth mentioning that these application forms do not come cheap. An MBA aspirant who may have shortlisted 5 B Schools to apply for, may end up spending Rs 10,000.00 to Rs 15,000.00 just buying MBA / PGDM application forms.

While internship and placements data of some management institutes clearly indicates that recruiters today have specific demands. The skill sets looked for are job centric and industry oriented. MBA schools which have adopted new models of delivery and technology, redesigned their courses, built an effective evaluation process and prepared the students to cope with the dynamic business scenario, have done great with campus placements despite the economic slow down.

However, the skill set being looked for by a consulting company like Deloitte or KPMG may be quite different from FMCG or a manufacturing sector. Institutes need to acknowledge this fact and act accordingly.

  • Management institutes should ensure that students are intellectually engaged, self motivated and adapt to changes fast. In one word ‘VUCA ready’.
  • B Schools should encourage students to participate in national and international competitive events, simulations of business scenarios.
  • Institutes should have the right mix of faculty members with industry exposure and pure academics.

The placement records of 2021 across top management institutes indicated the fact that recruitment is happening, skilled talent is in demand and certain management institutions continued to attract recruiters even in the middle of an ongoing crisis.

It is time, all management institutes rise to the occasion, understand market realities and identify areas of improvement at both ends – students and faculty.

After all, the stakes are high at both ends. B Schools taking corrective measures will stay while those which are lagging will end up shutting down.
