Heart vs Brain

The conflict between my heart and my brain….
The most satiated person on this planet is the one who has both her/his heart and brain functioning in sync and in complete harmony with each other. It becomes extremely difficult to live when your mind doesn’t comply with your heart.
My brain has been hardwired to make me live like everyone else; my heart, on the other hand, realizes that I am a different person.
My brain wants to follow the culture that has been set; my heart understands that the ones who set the culture were nothing more than what I am.
My heart wants to experience every emotion before it stops beating; my brain, however, wants to play it safe.
My heart makes me feel like a human, my brain…like a machine.
Irrespective of all this, it is my brain because of which I am surviving in this society of people with similar thoughts. Most of the decisions in my life were taken by my mind, rather disappointing my heart.
But today, I listened to my heart. Although, my brain tried its best to stop me from writing on this topic and not letting anyone know about the fight between the two, I am extremely glad that my heart won!
 On the occasion of World Mental Health Day, I would like to add that all of us at some point of time must have been through this conflict but it’s better to speak up and let everyone know the state of your mind because…. It’s okay to not be okay!!!

Making of a successful event

What all factors contribute in the making of a good event? Let’s have a look from the perspective of a first time event host.
Any event starts with a vague idea which is an amalgamation of thoughts of the team members about what the event should be like. With discussions and brainstorming, this idea is shaped into a ‘problem definition’ (in management terms) with a well defined scope(time, involvement, preparation, participation, etc.)
Though the ‘problem definition’ seems quite complex at first glance, when broken into smaller tasks, everything seems manageable.
One of the most important aspects is to gauge the core competencies of the team members and to distribute the tasks accordingly.
While working on the individual tasks, ensuring coordination among the team members is a must.
During preparation, several internal or external factors could hamper the progress. But, with determination and teamwork, anything can be achieved!!
With an amazing team like the Events Committee and with the support and guidance of the seniors, I would say it is not very difficult to host any event.
