The session commenced with the recitation of the National Song and was followed by a brief discussion on motivation and time management. Mrs.Vani took the lead and briefed about the significance of motivation and deliberated upon various aspects of time management. This was followed by two fun events which included finding solutions to brainteasers and guessing movie names from given dialogues and the students who answered correctly were given some goodies. Two videos were played that illustrated the relevance of a proper timetable and elucidated the importance of time management for acquiring success.
The first session continued till 1 PM and after the lunch break, the session resumed at around 2:30 PM. A series of questions were lined up next which included identifying eminent CEOs, CFOs, and logos of prominent brands and companies, discovering words from a set of jumbled letters and given hints and few mental exercises to test how quickly a person responds. A motivational video was played next that depicted multiple aspects of life beginning from struggles to the journey of achieving success.
The end of the workshop was marked with a question and answer round which were quite satisfactorily answered by Mrs. Vani and Mr. Subudhi. The event finally concluded at around 5 p.m. On being asked about organizing the event, one of the student coordinators of SCP, Amlan Das was quoted as saying,
