A famous quote on leadership tells “The job of modern leaders is not to make money but to make meaning” In our Club “Bodhi” we consider this quote as our motto. The club “Bodhi” is the maiden club by the PGPEx batch of IIM Shillong formed in the year 2016. This club is in its embryonic stage and is preparing itself as a hub of 'ideas, creations, thoughts and solutions' to business problems, for the current batch and the batches to come. We aim to become a platform where not only the students but also the experts from various fields in the industries will contribute, share and review the materials available. We have envisioned this club as a source of knowledge on different economical and business aspects in a matured state. We work as a link between the students and journals to publish their works wherever and whenever possible. We organize writing workshops and panel discussions on contemporary economic and social issues. As far as the creativity with materials is concerned, we do not segregate management based on domains rather we encourage to write with a view from diverse perspectives and as an overall managerial problems
This Valentine’s season, we at IIM Shillong, decided to get wooed by the little kids from a Children’s home at Shillong. ‘WeCARE’ is an annual flagship event organised by the PGPEx participants of IIM Shillong, in February - the month of love, an event to show ‘We Care’ for the underprivileged of the society. The plans for the day are meticulously made from contributions towards food and necessities distribution, colourful games (musical chair, bowling) and engagement activities with the sole aim of spreading smiles across the tiny tots.
February 19, 2017: A dusky Sunday afternoon in Shillong, the PGPEx participants gather at a Children’s home run by a renowned missionary housing 30 physically challenged and underprivileged children. The management of the home needs a special mention, as the children are so lovingly taken care of and well provided, the place maintained in proper hygiene, and managed ideally up to the last detail. Meanwhile, we promise ourselves, to keep coming to the home and contribute in any little way we can and keep the flames of smile always burning with joy.
