Learning Beyond Classroom @ ISME
ISME under the leadership of Director Nitin Garg espouses innovation in learning which exhibits in form of “Learning beyond Classroom” activities in the courseware; to connect students to their surroundings and make them free thinkers while simultaneously making learning interesting and fun.
A manifestation of this was the recently concluded activity titled “Learning at the Edge of a Lake”. BBA students of ISME moved to the natural environs of Kaikondrahalli Lake (considered a success story in lake conservation by Niti Aayog of central government) for a master-class on business communication. ISME faculty Prof. (Ms.) Ritu Prasad – who has conceptualized this activity – exhorted the students to ‘critically’ observe the state of the lake and most importantly to connect to the lake not merely as a water-body but as a living entity. Students then penned their reflections as a short-essay.
Following is one of the writeup by our student, Rithik Suresh (BBA).
People call me the Kaikondrahalli lake but I honestly don’t feel like I deserve to be called a lake anymore. I’m a remnant of the past. A shadow of what I used to be. A ghost. A lake which once was filled with joy and life is now filled with despair and garbage. Above all, it saddens me to know that the ones who tried to save me are the same people who are slowly diminishing my life.
I used to be pristine, clear and pretty in my youth. Children used to come and enjoy by the bedside. Lovers flocked around to enjoy their tender and sweet moments. Many different kinds of birds and animals found their home in me. I was the centre of attention. A being that filled life in others. My serenity drew people far and wide.
But now I’m a dying star. You could say I’m a drug addict. As I relapsed and went back to my old ways. I’m downtrodden, destroyed and dead on the inside. I don’t know if I’ll ever go back to my juvenile days where I was ever so beautiful and saw people of all ages come and admire me in awe.
