The Departments of Business Innovations, IT, Mathematics and Basic Sciences of SCD Govt. College, Ludhiana organized a 2-days International Conference on 16-03-2019 to 17-03-2019 in the Sahir Auditorium as part of the centenary celebrations of the college. The conference was conceptualized keeping in mind the requirement of bringing the Academia, Industry and Government together. So that ideas could be discussed, deliberated upon and exchanged that would enhance the skills of the future professionals in order to transform India into a super power by 2030.
With an emphasis on this goal, the Principal Dr. Dharam Singh Sandhu, conference convener Dr. Gursharn Jit Singh Sandhu, conference Secretary Dr. Ashwani Bhalla warmly welcomed the luminaries and experts to share their vast knowledge and experiences with the students, delegates who came from all over the Country, research scholars and teachers upon their arrival in the campus.
Dr. Ashwani Bhalla introduce the Chief guest Dr. R.D Sharma, VC of Noida International University; Dr. Nawab Ali Khan, Dean Aligarh Muslim University who was the guest of honor and other dignitaries. Dr. Bhalla said that we need to bring change in state of affairs through innovations. Giving the example of China he said that India’s GDP is higher than that of China. It is 7.8% as against China 6.2%. Yet, India is nowhere in comparison to China. India’s youth is without job and employment. Dr. Nawab Ali spokes about the need to come out of the comfort zone. The outlook and vision of the employees needs to be changed. They should not feel threatened by prospect of any transformation. At the same time, customer satisfaction is important to capture the market. Innovations accelerate change hence 4 things are very important- Planning, Designing, Executing and Sustaining.
Dr. R.D Sharma said that hard work is very important but the youth of today has become a slave of social media. He also cited the example of China. The youth must understand their responsibilities and improve their lot in life. They should not depend upon the Government. He gives example of Lal Bahadur Sashtri, Narinder Modi and Dheeru Bhai Ambani. The teachers must also undertake research work in order to make learning more relevant by incorporating innovations.
On this occasion the proceedings of last year conference was also released. The guests and the sponsors were honored for their contribution. Dr. Gursharn jit Singh Sandhu proposed the vote of thanks. The inaugural session concluded with the National Anthem and immediately afterwards the panel discussion started. Panelist S.K. Chadda, Dr. Raj Kumar, Dr. Vishal Kumar, Dr. Gurpreet Kaur, Dr. B.B Singla highlighted the role played by innovations in transforming society. Obama care launched by president Obama was used as an example to show that India has also launched a similar yozna to provide medical care to people in BPL category. They spoke about brain drain and brain waste as an important challenge faced by the country today. Failure is the first step of success. If we are not failing, every now and then, it means we are not trying enough, innovating enough. This was the matra that was again and again conveyed to the students. Post lunch saw technical sessions in Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry run simultaneously in which teachers presented their research papers.
