DOCC: Heroes Speak- S P Jain Institute of Management and Research

DOCC: Heroes Speak                                                                               Jan 7 , 2012

The Centre for Development of Corporate Citizenship (CDOCC), initiated a yet another inspiring event “Heroes Speak”. Heroes Speak attempted to unleash the immensely impactful work of four eminent speakers who are all heroes when it comes to working for the higher needs of the society. The first hero was the only Indian 2010 CNN Hero, Mr. Narayanan Krishnan, from Akshaya Trust. Narayayan shared his experience on how he quit his job as a leading chef at Taj Hotels and began supplying meals to the homeless in Madurai. Narayanan's speech was so moving that it scored him a standing ovation. Next, was Mr. Johnson Thomas, who is Director of an NGO AASRA. AASRA works in the area of mental health providing emotional support, unbiased caring through a helpline service and walkin center. Mr. Johnson spoke on the current issues which lead to suicides and how those could be tamed down with stress management training. Another member from AASRA was Mr. Atish Mukhopadhyaya. Atish is an alumnus of SPJIMR and now is a principal at Tata Strategic Management Group. Atish is actively involved in Corporate Social Projects and aids in projects of AASRA. He spoke in detail about the entire DOCC program for PGDM students and how it marshaled him to give back to the society. The last speaker was a recipient of CNN-IBN's Annual Real Heroes Awards 2011, Prof. Sandeep Desai. Sandeep founded Shloka Missionaries in 2001with an objective to work for education in the rural schools. He shared his story of how he travels everyday from Churchgate Station to Borivali, asking local train commuters for donation for Shloka Missionaries.
