Synergy, The Corporate Society of Shaheed Sukhdev College of Business Studies, is back with its sixth edition, The Corridors of Vice. Based on the seven cardinal sins of Christianity– sloth, greed, pride, envy, gluttony, wrath, lust– revamped into the challenges faced by a business, The Corridors of Vice is a journey that aims to acquaint students with the demons and difficulties of the corporate world.
The event is a corporate interaction of three days, with the first day being The Curtain Raiser which was held on March 8th. The second and third day, that is, March 9th and 10th, will see a Corporate Simulation where the participants will be required to scavenge through the labyrinth of morality and sin.
The curtain raiser started with the lamp-lighting ceremony followed by a speech by the Principal, Dr. Poonam Verma, advising the students to give their best in all spheres of life and to adopt a practical approach in whatever they do. This was followed by a speaker session where various renowned personalities interacted with the audience. Amit Tandon, the famous stand up comedian, talked about his life and the seven sins, taking risks which would result in proportionate rewards,and also broke the ice with a gig. Ishaan Sethi, co-founder and CEO of PropheSee, was another one of the speakers who shared his life experience with the participants. Akhilesh Gupta shared his struggle of fighting with cancer which made him a better person. Dhruvraj Singh introduced the seven sins, relating them to the business world; and revealed certain pointers for success in the business world. Amitabh Singh, who graduated from SRCC, spoke about his desire to go for engineering but his inability to do the same due to lack of marks. The main focus of the speech was entrepreneurship in the form of control of your life and actions. Concluding this session was Shruti Tantia, who described how letting go of obscenities offered her more opportunities for growth and development. The underlying message of all speakers was to follow your passion and do what you love.
The speaker session was followed by an interactive session where the participants were allowed to raise questions which were answered willingly by the speakers. This was followed by a high tea session and another interactive session among the participants and speakers. Concluding the event was a brief introduction by Mr. Aravind from Squadrun, the Training and Development Partner for the event about the tasks at hand for the participants for the upcoming days.
Thus, the first day of The Corridors of Vice was a success with participants looking forward to the series of upcoming competitions.
