India Week Mailer

India Week Mailer

The coming week will be celebrated as the India Week at HEC Paris. Lot’s of preparation is going on. Aside from a movie screening, we are simulating two challenging and entertaining events – A typical Indian Village Fair (Mela) and a typical Indian Wedding Ceremony (Baraat & Shadi).

It’s going to be fun especially considering the fact that a real non-Indian couple, who are also MBA Participants, will get married the Indian way in the simulation.

Here is the link to the official website of the event.

Here is the link to the promotional flyer that I prepared for this event.

I’ll keep you posted.

Pictures speak louder than words. So here’s a sample of what went at Residence Expansiel (HEC MBA student quarters) on the evening of Holi – the festival of colors. Truly an exciting time with colors all over.

How important can colors be in our lives?

I was overwhelmed by the answer which partly lies in this video,

May we enjoy all the colors in our life and may God bless us with peace!

A clear understanding of the financial crisis…

Recently, a friend of mine shared this video with me and it was fascinating to see the mechanics of the current financial crisis being captured in “almost” totality yet being presented in a simple manner. I share it below for your reference.
