Subroto Bagachi was the key attraction and keynote speaker at the state level seminar on ‘Contribution of Biju Patnaik for Technical Education in Odisha’ organized by Odisha Private Engineering Schools’ Association (OPESA).
He narrated his experience of having deep interior tours in the state to understand the current status, issues and scope of skilling in Odisha. He made a powerful speech at the occasion and narrated many stories of hope in a vivid manner.
During his speech, Subroto focused on positive thinking and said, “Over the decades we have been saying ‘No’, ‘No’, ‘No’. We have to change our mind set and start confidently saying ‘Yes’, ‘Yes’, ‘Yes’.”
He further said that out of his visit to over 60 technical and skill institutions in the state, he found only 3 institutions where the students could talk to him with proper eye contact. “If a trainee doesn’t have confidence no amount of skill can help him to find a proper placement,” he informed.
Mr. Subroto Bagchi shared the stories of many skill trainees and rural entrepreneurs whom he met at different geography during his extensive visit across the state.
Be it the story of Surendra Sahoo of Jajpur, the loco-pilot Munitika or the 18 years old widow Anita, every story is inspiring and a case study of positive life. “I have met so many people and learnt so many stories that I can engage you throughout the day” – he got huge applause from the audience while quoting this. “I can write another four books to narrate those stories,” he added.
