On 28th September 2017, Shri Govindbhai Dholakia addressed the Business School Students of Auro University. He started his session with a Shloka. Although he declared that he did not have the opportunity for formal education and just had a certificate till the 6th grade, but was a well-read man as he has the entire Gita by heart.
Students really enjoyed his informal and frank approach of communication, he communicated in English, Hindi and Guajarati. The messages, which he gave, were primarily of his journey from his small village to the empire he has built. During this he emphasized on how he never compromised on his value system and also kept the entire family intact.
Students were flooded with questions to which he responded in a very amicable manner. The major takeaways, which were there from his sessions, were of how to derive respect from all, which was possible by only one single way of giving the same to others. His major emphasis was also on living a non-toxic life. He is an avid followr of Mahatma Gandhi’s readings and therefore elaborated on the mantra of his company – Shri Ramakrishna Exports Pvt Ltd: - “I am nothing … But I can do anything.”
The session lasted for 2 hours in total and not a minute of monotony existed. It was a highly interactive talk bundled with all his personal experiences and lessons of his life, which he narrated in a very comical way. This actually helped the student age group to connect instantly.
He has also expressed his consent to come again to the Campus to address the upcoming batched in future.
