The movie used for this purpose was Sully starring Tom Hanks and Aaron Eckhart based on the real life incident of pilots of the US Airways Flight 1549 Chelsey Sullenberger and Jeff Skiles being forced to land a flight in the Hudson river in the USA. The aim of this exercise was to enlighten the gathered students on how to improve their decision-making skills. Sheets were distributed for recording the views of the students, with the best two to be rewarded with prizes.

One of the most interesting sessions on was the session by Dr. Archana Tyagi – Professor, Coach, Trainer, Clinical Psychologist and Career Counsellor – during the post lunch section.Dr. Tyagi indicated at the outset she would utilise the session for concentrating on emotional intelligence.  She highlighted the fact that rather than talent, it was attitude that determined the degree of success that a person achieved in life. In other words, it was not talent, but the way that it was used that decided success. She used a video of a speech by renowned commentator Harsha Bhogle to make the point. While knowledge and skills are visible to others, attitude is a more hidden element as it reveals itself gradually with time.

Dr. Tyagi also spoke about the difference between a fixed mindset and a growth based one. In this context she referred to the real life story of Sri Lankan cricketer Marvan Atapattu, who made a spectacular comeback in spite of repeated failures. She also held forth on staying motivated by expecting better results from efforts, being flexible by using obstacles as a means for growth and managing oneself as the first pillar of emotional intelligence.

The session turned out to be very interesting as well as informative for the students. The ensuing Q&A session threw up several thought provoking questions which were met with educational responses from Dr. Tyagi. 

The final session of the day was under the guidance of Prof. Durba Roy, where she spoke about the role of the CRC at ITS, and how the students needed to develop themselves in order to match up to the requirements of the corporate world.
