Prof. Dheeraj Sharma welcomed the esteemed guests. He, while reflecting on the milestones achieved by IIM Rohtak since its inception said, “It is the hope that helps us carry on towards our goal. It is the hope of taking IIM Rohtak to the top that drives the will power of faculties and administration.” He further added, “Rituals are an important part of our daily life as they are the source of our values and provide a meaning to our life. Rituals symbolise our aspirations and inspire us to achieve great things.”

The Chief Guest of this event was Dr Vinay Sahasrabuddhe, Hon'ble Member of Parliament, Rajya Sabha. In his keynote address, Mr Sahasrabuddhe congratulated IIM Rohtak for establishing itself as a top B-school in such a short period and talked about the importance of science of Institution Building. He said, “Institution Building as science needs research and documentation and B-schools can play a significant role in this field.” He further added “As a society, we are facing crisis of ownership, authenticity, and purpose.” He highlighted the dearth of leadership and suggested that B-schools can train students in leadership, not only from corporate viewpoint, rather for other fields in our life.
