UNITED SIKHS HELPS STUDENTS ACHIEVE EXCELLENCE IN THEIR CHOSEN FIELD
New Delhi: UNITED SIKHS conducted a workshop titled ‘ACHIEVE EXCELLENCE IN YOUR CHOSEN FIELD” with the students of Guru Tegh Bahadur Institute of Technology, Rajouri Garden on Oct. 24, 2008. Around 120 students participated in the session addressed by Major General Iqbal Singh. He touched on a number of pertinent subjects including Goal-setting, Motivation, Time Management, Human Development, Dharm and Hukam, alongside exemplifying a list of legends in Sikh history - Banda Singh Bahadur, Hari Singh Nalwa, Akali Phoola Singh Nihang, Nawab Kapur Singh, Maharaj Ranjit Singh, Jassa Singh Ramgarhia and Jassa Singh Ahluwalia. While keeping the session crisp and interactive, he chose an efficient way of questioning and then answering the same, making the subject very interesting and comprehensible.
