Today students of Panjab University were obliged to have Mr. Subodh
Kumar Jaiswal, Director General of police, Maharashtra, amongst us. He
is an alum of UBS and was earlier the commissioner of police, Brihan
Mumbai. He is also been additional secretary with Research and
Analysis wing (RA&W), an external intelligence agency for nine years.
In all, he has an experience of over 34 years in the Police
He started on a very humble note by recalling his college days here at
UBS. He narrated the journey of his life from Sindri, a district of
Dhanbad, to the Director General of Police. As per him, “Knowledge
gives us humility”. This line is so simple yet so deep that at times
we fail to realise its importance.
The learning that we got from his words of wisdom were “A person must
have a) Integrity. b) Professionalism c) Desire to excel. If you don’t
set an example, you cannot be a leader. You should excel in whatever
you do in order to achieve success”.
One of the most important things for a B-school is to learn
networking. Mr. Jaiswal enlightened us that real networking is to
cherish friendship and make good friends, something that people
involved in competition often forget.
Him being a voracious reader was quite evident from his diverse
knowledge which as per him helps in the long run. In a nutshell, it
was an interactive session in which he not only shared this knowledge
and wisdom but also his plethora of experience.
