OLD IS GOLD
The theme of Manthan ’19 is ‘Karwaan — The forgotten diaries’
This year’s theme for Manthan, the annual management-cum-cultural fest of the National Insurance Academy (NIA), is ‘Karwaan — The forgotten dairies’. To be held on February 16-17, it will see PGDM students depict ‘old is gold’ and how we led carefree lives before the advent of digitisation.
The fest, which invites participation from colleges across the country, holds three types of competitions — Business, Cultural and Miscellaneous.
The Business segment includes events like ‘Manager of The Year’, ‘Paper Presentation and HR Simulation’, whereas the cultural segment covers ‘Battle of Bands’, ‘Fashion Show’ and ‘Singing’. The Miscellaneous events include competitions on games like Counter Strike, PUBG and FIFA .
The NIA was established in 1980 by the Life Insurance Corporation of India, General Insurance Corporation of India, The New India Assurance Company, National Insurance Company, United India Insurance Company and the Oriental Insurance Company with the support of Ministry of Finance, Government of India to be the institute of excellence in learning and research in insurance, pension and allied areas.
In the initial years, NIA was dedicated to management development programmes catering to the insurance business professionals to boost the management skills and later, the two year post graduate diploma in management course was initiated to meet the growing demand of trained professionals in insurance and risk management. The programme offers twin experience in management and insurance.
The entire team of Manthan — Principal Dr Sanjay Mali, faculty coordinator Dr M C Patwardhan and student coordinators Vivek Raj, Faisal Ansari and Prateek Sahu — are giving their best to make the fest a success.
