“Follow safety rules and norms to avoid accidents and extend helping hand to the victims of accidents”, appeals Police Inspector Mr. Mahesh Sartape to Suryadatta Students

“Follow safety rules and norms to avoid accidents and extend helping hand to the victims of accidents”, appeals Police Inspector Mr. Mahesh Sartape to Suryadatta Students


Poona has become the fastest growing Metro city in India. Its progressed towards becoming a full fledged smart city with accelerated speed, is a boon but has brought woos like serious traffic hazards. Development has made human beings more robotic. Our sensitivity and sentiments are becoming blunt. Mr. Sartape, Young Police Inspector of Warje Police Station brought this point to the fore in the assembly of Suryadatta’s Students. He presented the statistics of the deaths in the road accidents which are much higher than the natural deaths.

He expressed his dissatisfaction for no use helmets by two wheeler riders and posed the question, why laws and rules are required for taking care of own safety? In fact pillion rider must use the helmet as in most of the two wheeler accidents, casualties are of pillion riders. He explained to the students that the growth of the vehicle population is alarming and therefore the infrastructural facilities such as Ambulance, Traffic police etc. find it difficult to cope up with the pressure of the work. He lauded the efforts of Suryadatta’s management in molding its students as a better human beings. He said, therefore it is must for Suryans to pledge that they would extend the helping hand to the victims of accidents instead of being mere spectators or the photographers at the accident spot. The major cause of two wheeler accidents is rash driving by the youth. He advised students to avoid rash driving because usually it results into crash. He also appealed the students to use the social media with the sense of responsibility and use this technology for generating and spreading positive messages in the society.

He and his colleague, Mr. Deepak Katale screened a movie titled “Helping hands” which made huge impact on the young minds of Suryadatta Students and staff alike. The film was about a family wherein birthday celebration of the only Son is on. They decide to go for a movie to mark the occasion. The son goes ahead on the two wheeler to book the tickets of the movie and rest of the family follows in the car. On his way to theatre hall the son meets with an accident and lies in the pool of blood, when the family’s car passes from the scenario, an old man from the crowd of the spectators, appeals to help him to take the victim to the hospital to save his life.

But the family declines as they are getting late for the movie and also has apprehension of upholstery getting spoiled due to blood stains of the victim. They did not see that the victim was their own son. After reaching to the theatre they find the son was nowhere in the sight and get the phone call of the unknown person from their son’s mobile that their son was in the hospital due to accident on the road and swinging between death and life. They rush to the hospital and find that doctors have managed to save the life of their son. As they begin to thank the team of doctors, for saving the life of their son, the doctors advise the family to thank the person who brought their bleeding son on time in the hospital and tell them, had that angle be not there they have lost their son forever. The moment they turn towards that helping hand, they realize that the person was nobody but the old man who was appealing to every by-passer of the car to help the victim of the accident without being related to the victim. The family overwhelmed with the feeling of guilt and shame pledges themselves of being helpful in the road accidents.

The presentation of the film was extremely emotional, technically almost flawless and acting wise superb. The film was produced, directed and acted by Mr. Mahesh Sartape himself.

At the end of his address he narrated a story of a small girl who was trying to save starfishes washed away at the seashore. He said even such small gesture elevates a Human being to the status of an Angle.

On behalf of Suryadatta Students, Prof. Dr. Sanjay B. Chordiya, Founder President and Chairman, Suryadatta Group of Institutes, Pune  thanked and promised Mr. Mahesh Sartape, Police Inspector that Suryadatta Students will be in forefront in following the traffic rules and helping the victims of the accidents.

“Catch the right opportunity in life, never give up” said – Mr. Manish Gupta renowned Motivational Speaker to over 300 MBA-PGDM Students

“Catch the right opportunity in life, never give up” said – Mr. Manish Gupta renowned Motivational Speaker to over 300 MBA-PGDM Students


Mr. Manish Gupta, who is beacon light to his followers and acknowledged business and life coach; recently conducted life skill session at Suryadatta Institute of Management, 300 MBA PGDM students were present.

Prof.Dr. Sanjay B Chordiya while introducing the Mr. Manish Gupta to students said that he is family member of Suryadatta Group. The lessons shared by him about his own experiences in the life will be of great importance to the students as they too can become wiser from such experiences. He further announced that Mr. Manish Gupta will interact with Suryadatta students more frequently so as to add sparkle in their journey towards being successful professional.

Mr. Manish Gupta was participating in the workshop, “Junoon- adding Enthusiasm in our lives and effective goal setting”.

During his address he unveiled the myriad experiences of his life and explained the students how he was educated and enlightened from each experience to raise the bar for achieving next objective of his life. He asked the students if he could do so and become a successful person why not each of the students follow the same suit?

Confidence and Hard-Work are the required characteristics for success. Only in the dictionary, the word PROFIT comes before WORK. In real life Profit always comes after Work that too Hard-Work. While facing the challenge it should be faced with smile as smile make things easier. Smile is master key to unlock the door of the journey towards success. We are blessed just only with one life and whatever we have to perform is to be performed NOW only. Wherever there are gaps in life, fill them up, you will be the force to be reckoned with. Everything can happen in life second time or many times except the Time. Cycle of the time can not be reversed  by anyone. You are the owner of your own time. You have to take the responsibility of each minute spent and utilized by you.  It is your future’s ownership and it is 100% yours. Those who take such ownership in their hands, never blame others or find the excuses for the failures. Time management is nothing but life management. Therefore do not allow the time to sleep away from your fist and get it wasted. Inculcate the habit of reaching your goal IN Time and not ON Time.

He also stressed to have lots of enthusiasm and determination while chasing our goal. Energy leads to enthusiasm and enthusiasm leads to vibrancy. He quoted Ralph Waldo Emerson, “Nothing great was ever achieved in life without enthusiasm.” 

He further explained the Growth Cycle in the life of professional personality. The Growth Cycle is divided in the four phases. The first phase is Learning phase. He advised the students to choose the first company of their career where they can learn a lot. Leaning phase is followed by the Leadership phase. The leadership phase can be lived well if one has leaned well. Then comes the Risk phase.  Risk taking ability is proportionate to the leadership ability and Success is proportionate to the magnitude of the risk. However he cautioned that it not be blind risk. Risk phase leads to Wealth phase, both materialistic and spiritual. 

After his lecture the students interacted with him. Many of them asked him how to get rid of inferiority complex or stage fright. He advised students not to run away from their weaknesses but to face them boldly. He told them to develop a positive, ‘Who cares?’ attitude (on others reaction). 

Students extracted a promise from Mr. Manish Gupta for his more visits to boost their morals during their this phase of life which is on threshold between Learning and Leadership.

The main course was Chicken Chasseur (Poulet Saute Chasseur) served with saffron rice, saluted vegetables and baked jacket potatoes. A kiwi and lime sorbet (water ice) was then served to give the guests a rest from the food. The meal ended with a trio of desserts – rich chocolate brownie, fruit shaslik and tri colored Bavaroise.  The students entertained the guests with French songs and dances.

The decoration was based on the 3 colors of the French flag- blue, white and red. The mascot was a French chef holding the Eiffel Tower and a cup of coffee on a salver. The walls were decorated by cut outs of the Parisian skyline and ceiling had paper festoons of blue, white and red representing the French flag.

Hospitality professionals from 5 star hotels - the Novotel, Westin, Four Points by Sheraton and Radisson attended the theme lunch. Entrepreneurs and Principals and faculty from Hotel Management Colleges also graced this event.
