connected technology with spirituality. Stating
the story of a Buddhist he said that the concept of management is not new to
India. It has existed for thousands of years. Highlighting the contributions of
Steve Jobs, Prof. N.K. Singh said that marketing is best defined by its
practitioners. He emphasized on the need of bringing back ancient knowledge and
connecting older concepts with the modern one. He said, We need to be More Indian, Yet More International. He further said
that Technology will continue to
advance and every time there will be some innovations. Stressing on the
relevance of technology he said that by 0.7% investment in technology we can
achieve 40% advancement in the country. Cloud computing, analytics, and other new
applications can become the game changer. Adoption
of new technology is relevant to the management but we cannot forget spirituality. He mentioned Zen, a Japanese concept whose roots lie in the
ancient Indian philosophy of â€˜Dhyan. Even computers were created with the
application of Dhyan.
N.K. Singh suggested that poetry and art should also be included in management.
Highlighting the philosophy of Hinduism, he said that Hinduism is not a
religion, it is a way of living, a way of practicing which emphasized on Being Together, be it study,
be it work or be it play. He
firmly believed that management can be truly practiced with the understanding
of spirituality which encompasses creativity.
Shiva is one of the greatest symbols of creativity and if its preaching
is practiced in management we can be called true human. He emphasized that the
need of the hour is to understand recent trends in process improvements, technological
advancements, innovations in the industry with a global perspective and equip

highlighted that advancement in technology cannot be beneficial if it does not
give due respect to human relationships. He mentioned that disruption has
become common nowadays and there is a time to guide it by the ethical
orientation. Managing technology is very important because it should not
disrupt relationships. Giving an example of mobile phones he said that
technology is adversely affecting the relationship which is not a good sign for
Chief Guest Prof. T.N. Singh, Vice Chancellor, MGKVP, Varanasi
extended his congratulations and his best wishes to the
organizing committee and congratulated Prof
S.K KaK and Prof. D.B Singh for
setting milestones for the management and technical education in the region
particularly in Varanasi and around
He underlined three challenges of today-
1) Need for Management in Technology
2) Management of Waste
3) Creation of Technology through Creativity
underlining the need for management in technology, Prof. T.N. Singh said that without management, technology has no
existence. There is a need to manage technology, in the absence of which it can
become highly disruptive. If management people provide market strategies along
with appropriate technology, it will help double the income of the person on
the lower strata of the society.
on the need for waste management, Prof. Singh said that there is zero waste management
in the country and we need to focus on it with the help of technology as well
on the third challenge, Prof. T.N. Singh said that development of
technology can be done through creativity, where
we need to decide whether old technology
is to be reframed or a new concept of innovation is to be applied. To stop the misuse of the technology, again there is a need for
management. He said that Indian society is highly diversified and management is the
discipline which will make it systematic.
