Saturday, 9th April 2022


The 6th International Research conference at Chetana’s ‘Building Resilience in Business and Beyond’ was a memorable success! The conference took place in the presence of distinct personalities from India and abroad, the highly enthusiastic faculty members and the students of CRKIMR and CIMR.

The inaugural session started with valuable insights on Indonesian education from our Guest of Honour Dr.Chairil Korompot,Chair ELEPE Universitas Negeri Makassar(UNM), Indonesia. Our Chief Guest, Sanjay Lutheran, MD Mattel EMEA, UK, described how 'resilience starts with changing mind-sets and not just strategy'. The Keynote Speaker, Mr S.P. Raj, Chair & Professor of Marketing, Whiteman School of Management, aptly added that ‘Fortune always favours the Prepared’.

The first panel discussion was conducted online on the topic- 'Innovation-The Roadmap for Business Resilience'. The discussion threw light on how Innovation has taken centre-stage and is building resilience in businesses. We had four international speakers for this discussion. Ms. Anuprita Bhomick, Head of Customer Experience, Google Devices and Services, Singapore, higlighted that 'loyalty and advocacy is resilience'. Dr. Gerard Athaide (A proud Alumnus of Chetana's) Prof.Marketing – Loyola University Maryland, presented his case on how 'innovation acts as a source and impetus for building resilience'. Dr. Elina Naydenova, CEO and Founder, Feebris, UK emphasised that the frameworks for development through Artificial Intelligence are indeed strategies for resilience. Mr. George Abraham, Chairman and MD, GA Group, Singapore moderated the discussion and added different perspectives to the discussion.

The second panel discussion was held offline on the topic-'Business Resilience through Agility and Technology'. The session was very engaging and quite enriching. Mr. Lalit Popli, COO, ARCON, spoke about ‘Learning to Upskill’, and how Technology alone doesn't make us resilient, 'making decisions at the right time' does. Mr. Mahesh Rathod, CEO, BeLocal Consulting LLP, threw light on the importance of Networking and Relations in today's business world through his insights on how ‘Resilience is nothing but Courage’. Mr. Chandan Agarwal, CMI PDC Director, South Asia, National CMI Director, Sri Lanka at Unilever, rightly pointed out ‘If you resist change you will perish’.

The moderator of the panel, Mr. Vikaas Sachdeva (A proud Alumnus of Chetana's) CEO, Emkay Investment Managers Limited added, ‘Don't underestimate the power of luck, but be fearless’.

We thank our high-spirited CEO of CRKIMR and CIMR Dr.Madhumita Patil, charismatic director CRKIMR Dr.Kalim Khan and energetic Director of CIMR Dr.Nandita Mishra along with the faculty members and non-teaching staff for ensuring that the conference was a grand success and a knowledge fest!

Harnessing India's Resources to make India Self-Reliant in collaboration with ASEAN countries

While everyone got comfortable with online classes, there was a need for an intellectual learning mechanism to groom the students and keep them thinking in a virtually oriented environment.

The international conference at Chetana was the perfect opportunity to encourage the students to participate, present, digitally witness and learn about not just one but four different areas of expertise. The discussions and learnings of the conference mainly revolved around “Harnessing India's Resources to make India Self-Reliant in collaboration with ASEAN countries".

The conference began with the address of our Guest of Honour, Prof. CH. Ibohal Meitei followed by the keynote address by Mr. K. V. Rao from Singapore who deliberated on India’s capability to achieve self-reliance and in collaboration with other countries. We were honoured by the presence of Mr. George Abraham, from Singapore Indian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (SICCI), as our Chief Guest.

For our Supply Chain conclave, we had great speakers like Dr. Chalong Suktong, Mr. Khin Maung Soe, Mr. Ishantor Sobhapandit, and Mr. Krishan K. Batra. There was a thorough discussion on the “India-ASEAN Connectivity & Global Value chain”. The leaders spoke at length with our students about Myanmar’s preference towards China for trade, possibilities of enhancing cultural ties, the impact of trade agreements on the financial markets of the countries, etc.

The ASEAN summit was graced by the presence of six distinguished speakers like Mr. George Abraham, Mr. Laldinkim Sailo, Mr. Lourembam Bikram, IAS Dr. Sriparna Baruah, Mr. Dato Ramesh Kodamal, and Prof. CH. Ibohal Meitei. Discussions on Organic farming and export potential of the North-Eastern states, land road projects under construction, potentials of Bamboo cultivation in the North East, and how improved connectivity can be brought about by highways and digital gateways, were discussed. It kept our students engrossed, waiting for more.

The Agri-Business and Pharmaceutical Conclave imbibed great enthusiasm and courage in our students to think in terms of a self-reliant Agriculture and Pharmaceutical base in India. Dr. Devesh Roy and Dr. Phadke addressed the trade deficit situation in our country, the presence of an innovative eco-system, and agribusiness start-ups. Mr. Koustubh Kanade, Mr. Mudda, Mr. Deborshi Moitra, and Mr. Daara Patel spoke at length about nutraceuticals and immunity, government regulations and norms, and vaccinations.

Overall, it was a very enthusiastic, interest-driven, and enriching opportunity for our students. At Chetana’s we don’t miss any chance to help our students grow and acquire new skills and learn more about the industry to become better future leaders and we promise to keep it going.

International Conference On A Water Secure World January 18, 2020. In association with Water Resources Department Government of Maharashtra.

International Water Conference – A Water Secure World: A Report

Chetana’s Institutes of Management and Research hosted a day-long international conference on a water secure world on the campus, on January 18, 2020. The event provided a forum for researchers and practitioners in the field to share ideas and research.

The event was inaugurated by Dr Madhumita Patil, CEO, CIMR. In her inaugural address, Dr Patil spoke about how the conference was driven by students , outlined the various initiatives taken by CIMR Founder-President, the late Shri Madhukarrao Chaudhari, towards water conservation and management, and also emphasized on the need for water management and security.

After the event was declared open, the keynote speaker, Ajay Popat, President, Ion Exchange India Ltd, showed the students a compelling video based on the vision of Dr. A. P. J. Abdul Kalam on what the year 2070 would look like if we did not adopt water conservation practices with immediate effect. He took a more technical approach and provided us with facts and figures to stress the serious problem of water scarcity and its consequences for the socio-economic development of the country. After listing out some of the major projects that his company, Ion Exchange India Ltd, had undertaken to increase water security, Mr Popat concluded by saying that water was everyone’s business and that we could make a difference only if we came together in the cause of water conservation.

Niv Pintow was our international speaker from Israel and owner, Livnat Engineering. He focused on the difference between a crisis, a water crisis and a water management crisis. Using Israel as an example, he provided us with the various methods implemented towards becoming a water-secure country. He emphasized on how trust between the people and the government was crucial, and concluded by stating that people would use water conservation techniques once we put a price on water. He was glad to see so many students of Chetana’s Institutes of Management and Research present for the international water conference on a Saturday morning.

Mr Rajendra Pawar, Secretary (CADA), Govt. of Maharashtra, took up Mr Pintow’s point further and explained how Israel did what India was now striving to do. He explained the difference in water demand between rural and urban areas, and threw light on the various water conservation initiatives undertaken by the state government. Mr Pawar concluded by urging the students to act as ambassadors to spread awareness about climate change and the need for water security.

The three speakers were then presented with tokens of appreciation followed by a vote of thanks by Dr Hufrish Majra, Faculty of Marketing at CIMR, who summed up the key takeaways from our speakers and reminded us that water security was ultimately in our hands.

The conference continued with a panel discussion on Innovative Practices in Water Management. The panel – which included Mr Harish Chandar (Director, India tech), Mr Vinay Deodhar (Director, Clean tech solutions), Mr Romiel Samuel (Executive Director, Indus Water Institute) and Mr Milind Murudkar (MD, Saisanket Enterprises) was moderated by Dr. Sandeep Nemlekar (Associate Professor, CIMR).

The panel discussion began with Mr Deodhar telling us about how wastewater should not be considered a waste and the need for shorter transport routes to reduce water wastage. Mr Chandar emphasised on the integration of AI, IoT and Cloud Computing in water management and how technology was the way to sustainable water security. Mr Samuel made us realise about the lack of awareness with regard to water conservation and the various available career opportunities in the field. Mr Murudkar cited examples of various crops and explained how different cultivation techniques impacted water conservation.

Dr Nemlekar then posed questions to the panel.

On whether copying Israel’s practices was the way to go, Mr Samuel responded by saying that although they would benefit India to some extent, there was no single solution and the answer would vary based on the problem at hand. They then informed the students regarding the various career opportunities in the water sector, following by which the panel was opened to questions from the student-audience.

The students then conducted a research paper presentation in three tracks, followed by a valedictory address. The conference elicited participation from academia, industry and government.
