Thanking the management of Amity for giving him an opportunity to be a part of “INBUSH”, Mr. B C Tripathi- CMD, GAIL said, “It’s is a matter of great pleasure to be here amongst this august gathering. The topic of the summit is very relevant and will remain ever relevant to the mankind till the existence of the human society. The objective of the Summit, if I clearly understand, is to develop world class innovative organizations and you can never think of any world class organization without basic resource which is human resource. Unless we clearly understand what we want to be, we can never hope to become that. The organizations and brands which do not realize the relevance of the people will fade with the passing of time. In my opinion, a world class innovative organization must be build to last and go deeper. It must have a strong sense of purpose, it must exist for a mission that would continue to be relevant for centuries and centuries thereafter to come. It is this quality which differentiates it from other companies and catapults it into a top company of the world. This is not to say that world class organizations cannot have commercial objective but at the same time we must bear in mind that philanthropy is also our responsibility towards the society as a company exists in a society, in an ecosystem, in a community and bears some responsibility towards these systems.”
Dr. Ashok K. Chauhan, Founder President, Amity Universe while delivering his key note address extended gratitude to the doyens of the industry, who added to the fervor of INBUSH by their benign presence. He opined that the country is having a very large percentage of young population, therefore the strength of the youth has to be channelised. He called upon students to dream big and follow them with unwavering dedication and devotion.
While presenting his views on “ Inspiring Individuals to Innovate Technologies for a Greener World”, Mr. Piyush Kansal- Consultant, RITES Ltd. dwelt on the importance of “Urban Mass Transit Systems for greener world”. Sharing some vital estimates about Indian Urban Scenario, Mr. Kansal said, “urban population in India is expected to become 436 million by 2011 and 820 million by 2051. Population of India’s 6 metropolitan cities has doubled and motor vehicles increased by 8 times during 1991-2001”.Expressing his concern over the consequences of congestion he stressed, “ congestion reduces the efficiency of road transport by up to 50%- more fuel, more emissions. Idling and frequent acceleration and braking increases wear and tear of vehicles, causing stress and frustration to drivers and co- passengers. Industries have to allocate extra space and inventory because of uncertain and delayed freight delivery schedule.” Suggesting “Integrated Multi- Modal Public Transport Network for Delhi” as the solution to the transport problem, he shared, “ the trend of increasing use of personal vehicles such as cars and two- wheelers has to be reversed by promoting the use of public Transport. City wide public transport network in terms of quality and quantity has to be developed which requires three steps namely- identifying corridors that need public transport, select an appropriate mode of transport for each corridor and plan convenient inter- modal interchanges.”
