A few months back, I teamed up with Snehal Shah and R Gopalakrishnan to put together a workshop on thought leadership for our faculty.

The workshop revealed many things, but put us firmly on a journey. We reaffirmed our faith in the depth and breadth of shared wisdom that exists in the faculty body. We also emphasised a truth - that knowledge is converted into wisdom only when it is shared.

The faculty resolved to begin a shared journey to thought leadership. Three months down the line, the first small step in that journey is visible. This is the SPJIMR blog- the thoughts, musings, reflections and ideas of our eclectic and celebrated faculty.

We would like you to read these pieces, comment on them, share them, and if you are a member of our community, join the movement by writing for us. The SP blog will become a platform for students, staff , faculty and alumni. It will showcase our knowledge, vibrancy and originality and will be part of a set of knowledge building and sharing initiatives that will put us firmly on the path to thought leadership.

Long ago, Descartes said 'I think, therefore I am'. We will expand that to 'We think, write, and share; Therefore, we have the power to change the world."

<p>I truly beleive that this is the best time "&nbsp;to learn"...and what is better than learning from the experiences &amp; knowledge of our teachers! Since its time for digital India...i would really want to explore&nbsp;this blog in the playstore of my&nbsp;phone...some time soon .</p>

The blog is a novel idea to implement and heartiest congratulations for it going live. I would like to share my thoughts on Knowledge, Vibrancy and Originality. When it comes to creation, the human brain is one of the most complexes. The volume of information a human brain can store is comparable if not more than a supercomputer’s storage unit. A human being learns at every stage of life either by being taught or by observing. Thus, the accumulation of knowledge, wisdom and emotions cumulate into experiences and memories. During the ages of the sages, knowledge was imparted by oral recitation and repetition. They believed that by rehearsing their hymns and mantras they would be updated. This trained the mind, body and spirit. Moving through time as man invented paper and ink, he realized the importance of documenting the knowledge. This became imperative as the transfer of knowledge through word of mouth had its own drawback. If not received or imparted properly it will get distorted through the generations passed. This resulted in our scriptures and manuscripts. In today’s world of technology, every individual is entitled to an opinion which he or she can express freely. When one shares information, facts, anecdotes and experiences it helps the reader, listener or viewer build on his/her learning by letting him/her connect to the incident, event or moment. They could draw a parallel in opinion, converge at ideas or diverge to create something new. Expression of one’s thoughts is not limited to books, newspapers and magazines but has expanded to blogs, vlogs and articles. The web of the internet has made all this accessible at the click of a button. Today’s man has the ability to empower himself with the knowledge in the world and share his perspective on it. This leads to a vibrant environment wherein the single focal point for all convergence is knowledge. Usage of this knowledge stems from the growth of wisdom. Lastly, every individual is unique, and this uniqueness is the source of originality.

Knowledge, Vibrancy and Originality are the three pillars that have built the foundation of the Oriental Education system and I have experienced the same whenever I have set my foot in the SPJIMR campus. SPJIMR and its blog provides a platform for the earnest students of management and leadership to express their vibrant ideas. Science of spirituality , Leadership labs, Innovation and Design Thinking echo the true sentiments of knowledge that is vibrant and original in the way its conceived for the pedagogy at SPJIMR. Discover, Learn & Grow are the three words that reverberated in my mind when I read the above blog on Knowledge , Vibrancy, Originality(not necessarily in the same order). That’s how the Almighty made us. As is famous in the Indian mythology, one can be the Third Eye of Lord Shiva(Destroyer of Evil) or the fourth head of Lord Brahma(Creator of the Universe). As Mr Debdutt Patnaik in his famous book Business Sutra says: Nara (Human Being) is Narayana (Almighty God). Every human being is unique in his own way. Evolution is the Mantra of Life. Survival of the fittest (Theory put forth by Charles Darwin) is here to survive; meaning one who has superior knowledge, dynamism and original ideas is going to be thrive and leap forward. Today in the instant world of twitter, Instagram and Whatsapp only SPJIMR can have the grit and conviction to highlight the importance of “Mindfullness” and “Headspace” which can be the gamechanger for both the corporate and leadership crises that is being witnessed in India and the world. May the darkness of ignorance be replaced by the light of Knowledge, Vibrancy and Originality. I truly believe in the dictum of Picking the best of both the worlds (Western & Oriental). SPJIMR truly exemplifies the same the saga of Knowledge, Vibrancy and Originality. I would like to rest my case by saying SPJIMR Blog journey has just started and there are light years to go before anyone sleeps. Discover : The originality hidden within yourself( Tat Tvam Asi: God lies within you), Learn : The Vibrancy and dynamism of the corporate and real world. Grow: Continue your journey for the quest of unknown and enlighten the world with your knowledge. Three cheers to SPJIMR Blog !!!Courage & Heart!!!!
