Third day of orientation program at IIM Raipur had activities aimed at providing a real time experience of management challenges related to operations and strategy

The third day of the orientation ceremony of Indian Institute of Management Raipur had activities aimed at providing a real time experience of management challenges related to operations and strategy. The institute has roped in India’s leading simulation game training consultancy, Praxis EL, for the same. The day long activity saw students undergoing simulation games well as lessons on entrepreneurship from Mr. Saurabh Chaubey, an entrepreneur from the first batch of IIM Raipur. The day ended with social and spiritual insights from Swami Vyom Pada Das ji from ISKCON, Bhilai.  

Praxis Training ltd continued from where they had left a day before and created an excellent simulation environment. The simulation game was carried out in order to encourage the students to work together as a team, plan ahead and find a way to achieve the goal despite the many obstacles that were presented. The game was in the form of a treasure hunt wherein all the students were divided into teams with each team representing one ship of an armada. Each ship had to reach a treasure island by selecting one of three possible routes and return from there with maximum amount of gold. The resources were limited and students had to use them in most optimal way to reach the destination.
 
The entrepreneurship thought was instilled into the minds of students elegantly by Saurabh when he compared life of an entrepreneur with the early days at IIM Raipur as the pioneering batch created systems and procedures in the institute.  
 
In the last session of the day, Swami Vyom Pada Das ji informed about the Akshaya Patra program which has become a milestone in itself by feeding 1.2 million children every day. Swamiji urged students to give meaning to their lives by doing something that may be good for the masses. He told that students can bring about considerable changes in the society by using their excellence and abilities. He learnt much more about life at Akshaya Patra than what he learned at Motorola, a corporate organization where he worked for quite a time.
