My Indian trip ended with a stay at Osmania university, a very lange university in Hyderabad. In the photo you can see the beautifula nd immense building of the Arts college. The campus is so large that a major road, connecting two parts of the city, is crossing the campus.
A very big thank you to Pavitra Arora for organizing my visit!
The importance of education is a relevant topic, especially for the joungest. I’ve been lecturing on the topic at St. John’s school, near Vizag (India) and had a great time interacting with the students. Together we have seen examples of Indian thought leaders and famouse personalities, and have drawn a personal map to success. I was really amazed by the knowledge of English of the students, and even more by their enthusiastic particiaption to the class. Together we have celebrated Pongal, a major Indian festival: the students have performed by dancing and singing, as you can see in the photo.Thanks to the Principal, Mrs Anu and her husban Isaac Bathulla, and to fr. John for the invitation.
During my last trip to India I visited the famous ISB (India School of Business) in Hyderabad. The buildings are really iconic and modern: the campus is beautiful and athmosphere is pretty American with an Indian flavor. The environment is as fascinating as the story of this world reputed business school, which you can read in “An Idea Whose Time Has Come: The Story of the Indian School of Business” written by Pramath Raj Sinha.
A big thank you to Raphael for organizing my visit!
