There were two sessions during which students of class MCom, BBA, BCom(FS), final year students of  BCA, BSc(Eco), BCom attended the seminar.

Dr. Navdeep Kaur, Principal welcomed the resource person Ms. S. Khushbu Kumari.  Principal briefed about the 130 years journey of SSSS institutions, especially the College. While addressing the gathering, she insisted on knowing self for getting empowered.

The resource person in her interactive session talked about topics that are rarely discussed due to judgemental views of the people. Through powerpoint presentations, narrating stories and citing the examples from routine life, she talked about the relevance of the word ‘ASK’ that is attitude, skills and knowledge. Students were also engaged in the activity ‘Know the self’. She emphasized that ‘Why’ and ‘How’ to overcome the gaps, shadows and weaknesses in time is important for realising the aspirations. Otherwise the individual is herself responsible for the collapsing of her dreams. Further, she said as females are comparatively more auditory and emotional in nature, so they need to be mindful, careful and alert while using social media otherwise they may be trapped, face negative consequences, downfall, dignity degradation, defeat, frustration and isolation. She encouraged students to understand ‘Why’, set ‘Limits’ and use ‘Filters’ for taking the right set of decisions as these enable them to eliminate, reduce and reject undesirable and realise  desirable outcomes, highest purpose of the life, and hence, maintaining dignity. She concluded the seminar with the words ‘Love to appreciate the self’.

In the end, Principal Dr. Navdeep Kaur presented the token of gratitude to the resource person.
