“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.

Marissa G. spoke about the work life in American corporations, with laptops complemented by the iPad and the moving of all data from the PC to the cloud for accessing from anywhere via the Smartphone and iPad. She highlighted the importance of good verbal English communication skills needed during videoconferencing among global team members. It is important to have good communication skills as there is the need for quick and prompt responses in all business situations while dealing with geographically dispersed colleagues and business partners.
At the occasion Marissa G., member of Rotary International from Chicago said, “Almost all major IT companies are already offering certain products and services over the cloud and a Gartner report mentions that by 2015 20% of non-IT Global 500 companies will be cloud service providers. So vast is the market for these innovative delivery platforms.”
Marissa G. also talked about QRcodes (Quick Response Codes). She pointed out that QRcodes are becoming pervasive and all businesses are getting QR (Quick Response) codes for easier tracking in various apps especially to facilitate e-commerce. In US for a product you capture the picture of a QRcode and competitor’s prices for identical products are flashed so the shopper can choose quickly. With augmented reality applications, by 2015 companies will generate 50% web sales through social presence and mobile applications.
She remarked that soon ‘User Experience Design’ will be critical as the website which is easy to use will be the one you will revisit. Ninety percent corporate applications will be supported on personal devices like mobiles and iPads. All this will encourage collaboration and communication with others to increase knowledge and understanding.
A collaborative work style with use of E-groups to keep oneself updated on the latest happenings in your domain and an integrated access to Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter was stressed. Before any meeting these resources are used to be better prepared for the business interaction.
