Report: Motivational Lecture on ‘Delightful Success’
DATE – September 6, 2022
The Department of Economics, IIS (deemed to be University) conducted a motivational lecture on September 6, 2022, in the Ojas Hall from 11:00 am to 12:30 pm. The speaker of this program was Dr. Satish Batra, who was formerly an Associate Professorin the department of economics, University of Rajasthan, Jaipur and also worked as Deputy Director, Bhartiya Vidhya Bhavan, Jaipur. He was welcomed with a token of gratitude by members of The IIS Economics Society. The subject of the lecture was “Delightful Success”. Dr. Satish Batra laid emphasis on the fact that “Happiness is the new rich” and success without happiness is meaningless. He further stated that one should always aspire to become a Divine personality and not a Demon, to achieve true happiness in life. He rightfully said that “In life, you may find many sneer leaders but very few true cheerleaders”. The students were not only enlightened about the hardships life throws at them, but were also given valuable lessons that they should not measure their life merely by the milestones accomplished, but should also embrace the failures, and they should live life as a journey and not as a road to an end. 
Dr Batra cited a popular quote by Swami Vivekananda “Arise awake and stop not until the goal is reached”, to motivate  the students to not just dream about the success but also to work for it. He also mentioned some examples of renowned successful people like Dhirubhai Ambani and Sachin Tendulkar who started from scratch and created great identity for themselves. A small video on the struggles and hard work of Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam was also played. He further highlighted the importance of strong willpower to overcome the problems and achieve success in life by quoting the life changing experiences of J.K. Rowling and Arunima Sinha.
Continuing further, Dr. Batra interacted with the students and asked them about their hobbies and their routines to help students get a better insight into how these small things add up to a bigger notion. Students were throughout captivated by the presentation given by him and were actively participating, eager to learn more and to prepare themselves for the dreams, they are yet to achieve.
The lecture came to an end with a beautiful video that depicted the difference between and importance of empathy and sympathy and how our emotions, and actions today mould the humans we become tomorrow. He then concluded by wishing students and the faculty members all the best saying, “Bring happiness, wherever and whenever you go”.
