We, at FIIB believe that you have the right to your information about this green campus. We make a concerted effort to share almost everything on our website, www.fiib.edu.in and on our Facebook page – http://www.facebook.com/fiibindia but some issues are best shared via your quintessential dose of Fortune Cookies. - Sindhu Kaushik

Mr Vinay Mittal, associated with Hindustan Times Media as the Chief Financial Strategist, joined HT Media in October 2008. He has worked with Max India and ANZ Grindlays in software services, investment banking, treasury management and venture capital. He has more than 21 years of experience, spanning the full investment cycle – right from Mr. Vinay Mittal building businesses to spinning it off. In his address to the FIIB-ians, he said, “A business plan should always be customer centric.” Mr Mittal explained, “Team cohesiveness and business management are crucial for business strategies. In fact, leadership is really about stringing together these two factors.” This theory pumped up HT Media‟s turnover from Rs 400cr to Rs 1,800cr in eight years straight.
Sustainability and Green FIIB Dr Ashok Khosla, Chairman, Development Alternatives, addressed the august gathering on the February 21,Founder‟s Day, as the keynote speaker. He set the motion for the beginning of a green era at FIIB. It was the perfect way to inaugurate the Sustainable Development Centre at FIIB. Dr Khosla demonstrated that a large amount of world‟s wealth confines itself to a small portion of the world‟s population, Dr. Ashok Khosla while the majority thrives in poverty, through the champagne glass theory. These two conditions, he said are diseases – „affluenza‟ and „povertitis.‟ “It is possible to break out of these deficiencies through profitable but „sustainable‟ social enterprises that are environmentally viable. Dr Khosla explained.

I will surely take home at least ten. They are super impressive and competent. Nishi Saini Manager ,HR Bausch + Lomb - India Recruiting from FIIB was a good experience. We could select two best students out of the group of 5 which itself talks about the quality of students. Both Nivedita & Alisha are shaping up very well and developing fast. Good performance.

From the Student Desk Hypocrisy or Generosity? - Afzal Alam, 2010-’12 The scintillating victory of India over Sri-Lanka in the finals brought crowning glory for the country. With the six that Dhoni hit, India donned the shoes of the Cricket World Champions after 28 years. Crackers, drums and hysterical screams all around broke the silence of the night and India once again tasted the flavour of the World Cup victory. This was probably one of the biggest festive days for Indians. This victory did not only bring glory for the country but even brought riches for the players. The political authorities of every state and even the Union Government opened its treasury for the players. The exchequers’ money was lavishly granted to the players. Many people have been proudly talking about the windfall of this wealth and the governments of many states are flaunting , as if in a race to lavish the players with wealth. But did anyone wonder why the exchequers money is being foolishly spent. Is the honour and the money paid by BCCI and the sponsors not sufficient for the players to meet their material desires? Do they really need money after such a glory and honour crowned to
their career? Was this glory not a good reward in itself? Does money still remains a motivation for them? If they really need it after all, think of the millions who do not have even two times meal a day. Is it the equitable growth that the government is talking about? How many plots and flats these players will need to live in, when millions do not have even a hut to live! With this foolish move, the government is only exposing its incompetence. If we still think it is justifiable, it makes me wonder - are we being generous or hypocritical?
