Power of Positive Mind - S B Patil Institute of Management

"Things have a way of working themselves out if we just remain positive." – Lou Holtz The past year and a half have been a rough time for everyone, with a simple airborne contagion disrupting everyday life as we know it. While the novel coronavirus's disruptive effect has been highly homogenous in its heterogeneity, it can perhaps be safely said that no one has been spared of its cruel touch. Students have been one of the worst-affected sections of society, and their physical and mental health has been taken for a terrible spin. The disruption of society's functioning concerning education has been absolute. Against such a sullen backdrop, it is straightforward to give in to despair and to fall prey to the misfortunes of a troubled psyche. Positivity as a resource has become scarce, perhaps too much so.

Christmas Message from the Director

Season’s greetings to all! Christmas is upon us, and soon, so will the New Year. This goes without saying, but the year 2020 has left a devastating impact on the lives of so many of us. With the pandemic situation, few of us have been fortunate enough to be well and in good health, while others have not. It has been a task to hold classes online, both for the students and teachers, and work our way through the situation to the best of our abilities. Many of our first-year students are yet to even see the beautiful place and campus that they are a part of. But in spite of all these hardships that we’ve had to face, it is indeed remarkable that we have fought against all adversities with undefeated enthusiasm and hard work. That being said I think it’s important to realize and be grateful for the blessings of the past year. In the midst of the current virtual mode of education, we managed to come as one and celebrate togetherness and joy through events like Darpan, Cul-Rah and various ot

Good afternoon and a warm welcome to you all! I would like to commence my address today with a quote, the source of which is unknown but this quote carries the essence of what Xllenz and CIMA events should mean to you as students. It goes - “Remember why you started” In the middle of assignments, CIAs and academics, Xllenz will surely be a breath of fresh air; an opportunity to break away from the monotony of academics, and an opportunity to create enriching experiences in your student life. But beyond this, I hope the fest will remind each one of you your reason and motivation behind taking up the course. Not just based on academics and the classroom experience that you engage with on a daily basis, but on the basis of challenging events that will prepare you for the corporate world outside your classroom. Xllenz offers a variety of events relating to HR, Finance, Operations, Management and so on. I strongly urge all of you to participate in a bid to discover and develop your skillset
