                                     Our Inspiration

                                   Late Shri Ganeshi Lalji Bajaj was indeed a multifarious
                                   personality. A freedom fighter, a philanthropist and a
                                   dedicated social worker, Ganeshi Lalji was revered for his
                                   benevolence and penchant for hard work. No matter how
                                   busy he would remain, he would always find time to not
                                   only educate the children of the underprivileged, but also
                                   provide them with food, shelter and articulate to help them
                                   come up in life. “Education leads to enlightenment”, he
                                   firmly believed.
                                                  We at RK Group have endeavored to imbibe
                                   our mentor’s spirit and mission to not only grow in our
                                   respective fields of interest but to keep aspiring, praying and
                                   working towards the cause of the youth and nation building.


As India continues making giant strides in varied fields in the global arena, be it in Medicine,
Science & Technology, Management, Yogic Sciences, the need for not just quality education, but
also very high standards of professional education is getting increasingly critical. The opening up
of the Indian economy has ushered in plethora of MNCs and big-time professionally managed
organizations creating immense opportunities and lucrative career options for the present, as well
as, the future generation. RK Group is totally committed and is fully geared up to brave all
obstacles and challenges and continue creating more and more high quality institutions that not
only provide the best infrastructure and ambience, but also a very strong and well-chosen faculty.
The obsession is to impart the best education and training to enable students to be exceptionally
competent to match global standards, as well as, to inculcate in them honesty, sincerity,
perseverance and allied virtues.
                        "We Believe in Perfection & Excellence in Education"
To prepare professionals who are leaders and trendsetters in their respective fields to bring out the
potential and groom each student to become:
                  Initiator
                  Explorer
                  Experimenter
                  Leader
                  Technopreneur
At G. L. Bajaj Institute of Technology we maintain the highest quality in whatever we do. We
believe that all our students have potential to become leaders in their respective fields and we can
unbridle that potential and turn them into true leader who are caring, learning, achieving and
sharing socially responsible. The objective of the Institute is not only to produce manpower with
academic knowledge but also grooming Industry leaders with concrete technical knowledge



                                                 I
                        From the Editor’s Desk
Chief Patron                “Books are the quietest and most constant of
Dr. R. K. Agrawal           friends; they are the most accessible and
(Chairman)                  wisest of counselor's, and the most patient of
                            teachers, observed”.

Patron                      With pleasure I am presenting the third issue
Shri Pankaj Agrawal         of our Annual e-magazine ACHIEVERS. I
(Vice-Chairman)             am overwhelmed by the response from
                            various institutions, corporate houses & all
                            the members of GLBITM family. I hope you
Our Eminent Mentors         will like this issue of achievers as the
Dr. Rajiv Agrawal           previous two issues.
(Director-GLBITM)           This issue of Achievers lays emphasis on the women empowerment.

Prof. Shekhar Ghose         “A woman is the embodiment of patience, the epitome of love and the
(Director General-GLBIMR)   personification of sacrifice.”
                            It’s still early days for women in corporate corridors. Although women’s
                            social and economic empowerment has many exponents and avid supporters,
Editor-in-chief             the neglect of women in the corporate world agitates few minds. So what does
Dr. Deepa Gupta             empowering women at work really mean? Liberalization, globalization and
                            the consequent business expansion have raised the aspirations of women. In
Professor                   tandem, several industries have taken steps towards positive discrimination of
(Dept. of Management)       women. The stories of empowered women will inspire you.”

Editor                      It is an era of globalization. We frequently talk about the global village. It is
Ms. Naila Afrin             now just a click and you reach any corner of world. This is made possible by

                            endevours. Achiever’s would provide a platform for all achievers to interact
                            with each other. We will share our achievements and happening in the
Creative Designer           department. The essential purpose of Achievers e-news magazine is to inform,
Mr. Harish Kumar            engage, inspire and entertain a diverse readership – including alumni, faculty,
Asst. Professor             students, parents and corporates – by presenting an intimate timely and honest
(Dept. of Management)       portrait of the department – its activities, its achievements and its

      Sarva Dharma Sthal in Management Department

‘Secularism the dialogue of modern India’, yes we at G. L. Bajaj Institute favor the concept. We nurture the talent that
belong to varieties of religions, communities and other diverse characteristics. To respect all the religions a Sarva
Dharma Sthal was established in the department where all the members of the family can have the feeling of
belongingness. It is displayed in the seminar hall of the management department. Student at various religious
occasions prefer to respect all the religions than a personal one.
Vice Chairman Shri Pankaj Agarwal Ji appreciated the efforts and addressed the students about the value of being a
secular country. He addressed that respecting all the religions is the true Indian tradition an at G. L. Bajaj it would set
a new chapter where all people would live being a part of the family. Other members present on the occasion also
presented their views.
This was the occasion when Hindi Diwas,14 September 2010, was also celebrated in the institute and a sacred event
like inauguration of Sarva Dharma Sthal added some more shine to the event. Some students shared their views in pure
Hindi and made the listeners confused by their tough Hindi words.

STONE SOUP
There once was a traveler who came to a small village, tired and weary from his long journey. The traveler did not
have anything to eat and hoped that a friendly villager would be able to feed him. He came to the first house and
knocked on the door. He asked the woman who answered if she could spare just a small bit of food as he had
traveled a long journey and was very hungry. The woman replied, “I’m sorry I have nothing to give you. I can
barely feed my own family.” So the traveler went to another door and asked again. The answer was the same: “I
have nothing to give you.” He went from door to door and each time was turned away. Undaunted, the traveler
went to the village square, took a small tin cooking pot from his bag, filled it with water, started a fire and dropped
a stone in the pot. As he boiled the water, a passing villager stopped and asked him what he was doing. The
traveler replied, “I’m making stone soup. Would you like to join me?” The villager said yes, and he asked if
carrots were good in stone soup. “Sure,” said the traveler.
                   The villager went home and returned with carrots from his garden to add to the boiling water.
Soon, another curious villager came by and was invited to join them. She went home and returned with some
potatoes. A young boy passed by and soon joined the group, bringing his mother and dinner plates from their
home. In time, a crowd gathered with everyone offering their own favorite ingredient: mushrooms, onions, salt,
black pepper, acorn, squash. Everyone wanted to be part of the creation. Finally, the traveler removed the stone
and declared, “The stone soup is ready!” And the whole community joined in a feast where there was none before.
