George Monis, the Principal had organized the industrial visit to become skilled at the practical knowledge in Management, and about the production techniques along with corporate practices. At the visit the students were exposed to a quality of lectures on the history of Volvo, its management, its growth and the manufacturing process of Volvo Trucks.

Seminar on Campus to Corporate “C2C”@ Darshan College
“Whenever you are asked if you can do a job, tell them ‘certainly I can.’
Then get busy and find out how to do it.”
Theodore Roosevelt
With the arrival of May month and May flowers, there arrive also Recruiters to the Campus. Their mantra becomes a resonance in the Campus, “right candidate for the right job at the right time”. The Placement Cell of Darshan College initiated the Seminar on Campus to Corporate World in order to help the students to discern the expectations and the challenges of the Corporate World. Mr. Vinay and his team of ZOBRA Learning presented the aspirations and the modern challenges of the Corporate World. Their motivational seminar helped the students to identify “Skills needed to Enter, Sustain and to Nurture corporate life.” It also enabled the students to understand the transition needed from a student becoming a professional. As almost 80% of the Indian employers say that today’s students lack soft skills and social skills necessary to fit into the corporate culture of their organization, this initiative of Darshan College is one of the responses to such a lacuna. The Placement Cell also invited different Recruiters so that the candidates have an opening to the world of work wherein their aptitudes and their aspirations meet the demands of the actual market. Certainly, Campus to Corporate Seminar has been an exciting and phenomenal step in the lives of the would-be corporate candidates. Yes we can!

Product Launch Initiatives @ Darshan College
Product launch events are essential to the existence, survival or success of any business. They play a vital role because they are always “start-up” initiatives. Therefore, the product launch initiatives are designed to achieve the specific purpose of creating awareness and publicity for a particular product/brand. Success of the event can determine the future of the product, for it can generate a lot of buzz, for it can pick-up momentum, for it can be directly responsible for post-launch sales. In view of giving practical exercise and experience to the future entrepreneurs Darshan College organised a competition. The launching event was graced and judged by Mr. Manjunath C N a well-known Architect of great calibre, and Mrs. Rowina Serrao a Management Graduate who excelled at Christ University.

Government of Karnataka face-à-face National Commission for Minority Educational Institutions @ Vikasa Soudha, Bangalore.
The Education Department of Karnataka and the National Commission for Minority Educational Institutions, New Delhi, interacted with one another to sort out some of the burning issues concerning the Minority Educational Institutions. It was firmly affirmed that the Minority Status Certificates issued by the National Commission are to be accepted by the Education Department of Karnataka because it is issued by a valid recognized legal body constituted by the Government of India. Once it is issued they need not be renewed every year or once in five years because the validity is not for the duration but for the Minority Status of the Institution either linguistic or religious. It was also announced that those institutions having the Minority Status Certificates do not come under the purview of the RTE 25% admissions as it is declared by the Supreme Court. Further, the stand of Karnataka Government to declare an institution as linguistic or religious minority one must have 25% for Schools & PU Colleges and 50% for Degree Colleges was questioned because when the total minorities in Karnataka form only 16.28% how can this be possible? Hence, the National Commission has urged the Government of Karnataka to review it’s stand in this regard. The Government representatives have assured that they will further study on the matter and do the needful at the earliest. Br. Alwyn Dias represented the Capuchins at the Vikasa Soudha.

Debate Competition @ Darshan College, Kengeri.

Wearing Helmets is essential for both vehicle rider and pillion. 2. Social networking sites are generally beneficial to our way of life.

“Steppin’Out” Dance Competition @ Darshan College
“Dance is for everybody. I believe that the dance came from the people and that it should always be delivered back to the people.” This expression of Alvin Ailey speaks volumes about Dance. Dance is a world in itself, for it is a way of knowing and communicating. It communicates culture, customs, traditions and life situations. It has it’s own language which one has to understand and appreciate. As it is said, “The body never lies”, dance portrays the inner perceptions and inner realities of mind and body. Different teams with different attire gave full expression to the music and took the eminent Judges and the audience to the celestial world. The performance of “Steppin’Out” was judged by Rev. Sr. Teresia, Rev. Sr. Roopa and Jurist Ms. Smitha. The Vice-Principal Rev. Fr. Nitin D’Souza welcomed the gathering, the Principal Rev. Fr. George Monis thanked the judges and the participants.

“Darshan College Visits Toyota Kirloskar Motor Pvt Ltd & Experiences the Quality Revolution”
“You cannot create experience. You must undergo it.” said the French Philosopher Albert Camus. In line with the above Oliver Holmes affirmed “A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to its old dimensions.” Having these expressions in mind Darshan College encouraged and organised an industrial visit to the well-known “Toyota Kirloskar Motor Pvt. Ltd. and it’s quality revolution.” The students discovered with their own eyes and had the firsthand experience of innovative and creative revolution of Toyota through interaction and exposure to the working methods and employment practices. The novelty of Toyota’s revolution lies in Toyota Production System (TPS). To understand this, the students were introduced to the history of Toyota in India, then the “Gurukul” where the new employees are inducted, followed by Innovation Center, National Manpower Excellence Center, 5.5 km Test Track, Parts Distribution Center, and finally Completely Build Unit which stores the manufactured motors. Moreover, the students were touched by the social responsibility of the company which caters to the school dropout youth through Toyota Technical Training Institute. The success of Toyota lies in the DNA of TPS which upholds the five pillars philosophy. They are: 1) Challenge. 2) Kaizen (Continuous innovation). 3) Genchi Genbutsu (Going back to the roots of the problem). 4) Respect. 5) Teamwork. That’s the secret of Toyata’s quality revolution!

As another pursuit, another life-style, another rhythm of life awaits them in future, and that too saying goodbye to the “Alma mater” and to it’s lovely faculty which nurtured and nourished became a painful event. However the PU Juniors with dance, music, games and fun made this passage of life, “parting of friends” a meaningful and joyous one.
