A Talk by Manish Puri on Motivation & Organisational Culture

Everyone has a motto. Some say, they don’t drink milk. Others say, they drink only beer. Some believe in love at first sight. Others track UFOs. Many speak in many tongues. But the metal is not steel until it has been tested through fire. To make a motto successfully align with one’s goals, one must conceive a method.

It was a matter privileged and honour to have Manish Puri interact with our team at the studio. The talk dealt with issues of motivation and personal accountability; ways to avoid miscommunication and become a good salesperson; of organisational culture. Manish Puri is a Business Consultant & Coach. He is the founder of STRAVENUES.

PERSONAL ACCOUNTABILITY

As a team leader, how do you get things done?

How to not be nagging and yet ensure things get done on time?

  • Assign a task with deadlines

  • Ask them what you can do to enable them if deadlines fall short

ORGANISATIONAL CULTURE

“Why We Do Not Outsource?” by Baba Toon

We have built our temple along the broken ridges of the Aravali. In a dusty city of red flowers and sky-high towers, we have framed our edifice. And on this hallowed alter, we are shaping the crèche for the young titans. We are raising a world within our walls. Yet our walls are porous and our flight, unconstrained.

We are the harbinger of the new language of the titans. It is the language that will weave the visual threads of the newer worlds. We are a coherent unit with an ever aligning core.

We do not believe in outsourcing because it is of prime importance to uphold the structural integrity of the organisation. We work on many simultaneous projects and we look out for new potentials to join our ranks and to expand the family. That’s the way we work. We are actively invested in building an inclusive and evolving culture. It is not just the quality or the beauty of our task but the attitude and the philosophy of our work that guides us. And to dilute that in favour of size and quantity is a compromise that we will not make.

We are NOT willing to OUTsource but we are always eager to partner up. Partners are equals in vision, intention and drive. They are the lighthouses that project light to help our ship navigate the unknown waters. Our ship is the arc that holds the grains for our mutual future. Partners share breath and bread. They align with the axis to improve the movement and boost the momentum. They are the links that complements our inherent values and strengthens the chain of organisational integrity.

We do not outsource instead we look for partners.

With a problem solving attitude and a will to build, he joined VIT to pursue his B.Tech in Biotechnology. College saw him pick up his guitar and discover his own expression in music.

He backpacked through India chasing stars and capturing light through his lenses for a year. The cold winters of 2011 saw him volunteer with the NGO Karmabhoomi in the barren icy terrains of Ladakh. He taught chemistry, biology and aspiration to the secluded school kids of Turtuk. Inspired by nature’s reliance on co-existence, community building became his next obsession. He wanted to bridge the twain; his scientific outlook and his artistic temperament. An entrepreneur at the day and a photographer at the night, he built RumbleArt as an online marketplace for fine art photographers to showcase and sell art prints. Working with the motto, CREATE, EVOLVE and SUSTAIN, RumbleArt became an interactive space for artists to engage.

Meeting Moon Arun, a visual artist per excellence propelled him towards his next journey into the art world. Together they formed Brainpan Studio. Initially conceived as a wing of Brainpan Innovation, it soon took up wings of its own. Backed by incredible artistic vision and strong operational mettle, Brainpan Studio soon gained the trust of clients like Uber, Escorts and Pernod Ricard. Brainpan Studio is a small team with giant ideals. Aditya is an ardent believer of mutual progress and co-dependent social interaction.

Baba Toon Interviews Surbhi

No act of growing up in Mathura is ever untouched by the presence of god. Religion was an omnipresent entity. Each day was a festival in praise and servitude to god. Daily processions and ringing bells brought in the days and ended the nights. Interaction with the multitude of faithful gave a sense of a larger existence yet denied the right to an individual identity. Books, studies and sleep became the escape from the time harrowing chants. Closing the window to the outside world, opened the corridor to imagination.

Name: Surbhi Goyal | Education: B. Design from Banasthali University

An Interview with the intern.

What is concept art?

Surbhi: The varied possibilities and potential of any given topic is concept art. It is the expansion of the mind to newer things and imagination.

What part of your life involves art?

Surbhi: Art is an integral part of my life. Art is a representation of my own self. It is the medium through which I interact with the world and interpret my own being.

What are the markers of a good concept art?

Surbhi: Good concept art should reach the minds of the audience. The perceptive of the end viewer is paramount to the process of creation. It should be different and yet palpable to the understanding of the observer. Understanding supersedes aesthetics.

What else other than concept art excites you?

Surbhi: Having my own time and talking to myself. 😀 Sharing moments with my close ones. Mysterious movies.

Do you have any final words?

Surbhi: “What you seek is seeking you.” It is a quote by Rumi.
