The BMI session conducted on 6th of January’21 was graced by Mrs. Bharathy Bhaskar, Of “Solomon Pappaiah Pattimandram” fame, B. Tech in Chemical Engineering, MBA at Anna University and Director at a leading Multi-National Bank. The session addressed the topic ‘QUIVER FULL OF ARROWS’.
Mrs. Bharathy Bhaskar, a very experienced and an eminent person, began the first half of the session emphasizing on how each and every decision impact one’s life and career. Moving on, she discussed on how students take decisions when it comes to education as well as career path. The journey in the long path of one’s career should be like an archer, overcoming all the pressure and downgrades happening in the world. Considering one’s career path, he or she should understand to fix the target to short or long term. It is important to set aspirations and always raise hands. If not, nothing is going to come one’s way. Also, it is ok to be wherever one decides to if he or she is happy.
Mrs. Bharathy then spoke about how one should handle a situation when something goes wrong. She also explained the similar situation with respective to corporate perspective taking TCS as the example. So, in TCS, usually employees working with data wouldn’t be allowed to use mobile phones and their desktops wouldn’t be connected to any wi-fi or printer. TCS has always followed a great information security protocol. Now, since the COVID has happened, which was not at all expected, employees were pushed to a situation to work from home. Now, the security has become a big question mark. TCS has handled the situation really well. The company shifted from Permitted based analysis to Transaction based analysis. Therefore, if any employee tries to breach the security, he or she will be caught. Likewise, students not only have to handle the life decision but also handle unexpected situations. Each and every student at this age has to examine what he or she really wants to do, what really interests them, and what really fascinates them. Once done, decide and fix the target.
Mrs. Bharathy ended the session with a note ‘Diversity is the game changer’. Conceptually, diversity brings re-thinking. Diversity is mandatorily required in a team. Also, an archer’s success rate is around 75 percent. Likewise, one cannot expect success every single day. It is important to handle the unexpected occurrences and get over those, in order to succeed in life.
“The Webinar on the topic ‘Quiver Full of Arrows’ by Mr. Bharathy Baskar was very insightful, which profited all the participants enormously! We had the opportunity to present our doubts regarding the decision-making skills required for our career and discuss how to make them better even during uncertain times like the present recession period. Many ideas that were shared during the webinar were very logical, straightforward, and very helpful. I thank Mrs. Bharathy Baskar, LIBA Management, and BMI for this awesome webinar session.”

“Mrs. Bharathy Baskar engaged a very interesting session on ‘Quiver Full of Arrows’. Her stress over having a consistency and focus on achieving something implied how important it is for the corporate environment. There was a lot of instances posed in this session on decision-making, consistency, self-belief, self-confidence and really was an eye-opener. The importance of handling unexpected situations and pressures so that one can take his steps forward towards the goal. Overall, this has been a valuable experience for me and I appreciate and expect frequent sessions like this.”

“Being a fan of Mrs. Bharathy Bhaskar’s pattimandram speech, it was a mind-boggling experience to have a virtual face to face interaction with her. Her calm and composed explanation of success is one of the best speeches I have ever listened to. The session was really interesting with various real-life scenarios and real challenges faced. I really would be looking for her in upcoming BMI sessions.”
