I got an opportunity to join BNMIT, Bangalore family on 1st August 2018 for which I am thankful to the authorities of the college management for making me a part and parcel of it. During this period of two years, I experienced many things from close- quarters in the college. Though there are many good and brilliant practices, I liked the concern of the college for the students and the staff.
We all know that in this mundane existence, people do not have time and concern for others at all. Everyone has his own axe to grind. In a simple way, I may say that everyone has some selfish interest to serve. The concern for others is the rarest of rare situations these days. That is why today humanity is crying in the night; crying for the light. Self -centeredness, and selfishness have become the trend of the day. On the contrary, it becomes a brow break for the viewers when they actually see the great concern of the college for the staff and the students at BNMIT. It is just like a family.
During these two years, I saw various situations and how the college responded to them to sort out amicably because the college is very much concerned with the problems of the students and the staff. On the other hand, BNMIT is known for its very strict discipline and punctuality at work. The work ethics of the college keep everyone on toes to discharge duties sincerely in the interest of the students and the college as per the directions of the VTU, Belagavi. But after hard work, when the task at hand is accomplished, the joy gets doubled. So, everyone strives harder whole-heartedly with a feeling ‘Rest is rust.’
Though the administrative machinery of the college is of a few words, its actions are sharper and snappier to solve the problems of the staff and the students in an amicable way. They call the concerned, interact, try to know what the problem is, and put their heart and soul to solve them amicably without taking any credit. In turn, the concerned person becomes speechless, makes up his mind to work in a better way, and develops respect, gratitude, and devotion towards the authorities. It is so because the college doesn’t believe in ignoring problems, instead it believes in solving them up to its level and limits. In practical life, we have seen that the best philanthropy is constantly in search of finalities. This is seen at BNMIT.
The endeavor of the college is to create a supportive community of knowledge workers, blessed with participatory learning where each individual is empowered to turn his/her aspirations into reality, remain a life-long learner and also an inseparable part of this family. This is one situation. There are many which can’t be listed out such as attractive scholarships for poor and needy, concern for the students of rural background, internships, field training through visits, projects, best placements and above all taking everyone along. Furthermore, cultural, aesthetic sensibilities and sportive instincts are honed beyond measure.
The members of staff are given periodical exposure to various training programs such as FDPs, Workshops, Seminars, In-service Trainings, Webinars and F2F sessions on myriad topics that strengthen their intellectual caliber to impart better training to the students.
The parents of the students can easily repose their faith in the college about the well-being of their children because all the members of staff have a very good level of sincerity, care, concern, and commitment towards work and responsibilities, which is laudable.
Owing to the above reasons, the BNMIT, Bangalore has won many accolades for excellence in almost every field. Recently, it has been ranked 24th amongst the top 50 institutions in India by IIRF as published by the Education Post.
It is also a matter of great pride that BNMIT has been awarded the QS ranking for e-Learning Excellence for Academic Digitization, E-LEAD. It has been ranked amongst the few top institutions in the country for which the management, the staff and the students deserve great appreciation.
The above-stated facts always keep my self-esteem aloft to work with the go-getting attitude of stormy proportion. Hats off to the BNMIT team for its concerted efforts. This is what I have felt as a Former Principal, after retiring and hailing from the Central Tibetan Schools Administration-Delhi under Ministry of HRD, Govt of India.
I shall pray to the Almighty: May all be happy; May all be free from disease; May all realize what is good and may none be subject to misery.
