    These days, many long-term investors look to diversify their portfolios by investing in different, even exotic, asset classes. Some prefer to put their money in rare coins and jewels, while others invest in fine wines. One investment class quickly gaining in popularity is art. Not only can fine art enhance your home décor and evoke powerful emotions, it can appreciate in value simply while hanging on your living room wall.

    The myths about the amount involved for investing in art have always kept the average person from entering this potentially lucrative venture. IMC Ladies’ Wing invites you to explore the intricacies of investing in Art with Director at Mr. Ashvin E. Rajagopalan, Ashvita Group & Director at Piramal Art Foundation.

    Mr. Ashvin Rajagopalan is Director of Piramal Art Foundation, a philanthropic organization that runs the Piramal Museum of Art in Mumbai. After establishing Ashvita as an Art Gallery in the heritage property of renowned Dr E V Kalyani’s residence, Ashvin opened Cafe Ashvita in 2003.

    Join us to explore how Art could be a popular alternative investment opportunity in the long run.

    Sexual harassment at workplace is a universal problem whether it is a developed nation or a developing nation or an underdeveloped nation. Sexual harassment has been identified as a term which is difficult to define as it involves a range of behaviour. And therefore efforts have been made at both national and international levels to define this term effectively.

    On 20th November 2018 a closed door Round Table meeting was organised by the Legal Committee of Ladies Wing of IMC, where highly qualified people and experts in their own fields got together and discussed the pros and cons of the recent law on protection of women from sexual harassment. There was an explosion of ideas and sharing of valuable experiences which were too good to keep behind closed doors!

    The Legal Committee of the Ladies Wing is therefore happy to announce a follow up session open for all where Mr. Rafiq Dada (Senior Counsel, Bombay High Court) as our Chief Guest will enlighten us on the background, nuances and benefits of the Sexual Harassment at the Workplace (Prohibition, Protection and Redressal) Act 2013, and a Panel of experts will discuss the pitfalls and road ahead and share their deep understanding of this subject with everyone. A senior journalist is also invited to add her knowledge and experience to the brainstorming session!

    Panelists:

    • Advocate Ms. Meena Doshi, Practicing Advocate Bombay High Court
    • Mr. Sanjay Kadam, Asst. Commissioner of Police
    • Ms. Sunanda Chak, Country Head - Marketing and Business Strategy of CA Technologies

    National security management has become extremely complex with several factors like migration, globalization, climate change, infrastructural inadequacy and other non-traditional security issues. Simultaneously traditional security institutions have been weakened by core sectors like communication, financial or business sectors going out of their control through globalization. All countries have tried to meet this challenge by reforming their security institutions which also includes public and corporate participation in security. This has however never been implemented in India except in a superficial manner.

    Mr. Vappala Balachandran I.P.S (retired) will address us on how internal safety of citizens can be improved and how all of us can play a key role in management of internal security.

    Mr. Vappala Balachandran I.P.S (retired) is a columnist, author and security specialist who retired as Special Secretary, Cabinet Secretariat, Government of India. He was a member of the 2 man “High Level Committee” (known as “Pradhan Committee”) to enquire into the efficacy of police response during the Mumbai November 26, 2008 terror attacks. In 2010 “National Geographic” recorded his long interview for their 1 hour film “Mumbai Massacre” based on this attack as part of their “Seconds to Disaster” series.

    Time:    4.30 pm Registration (event starts at 5.00pm)
    Venue:   Walchand Hirachand Hall, 4th floor, IMC Building

    Women have always played an important part in the workforce. But there has been a significant shift – arguably a revolution – in the range of employment options that are now open to women, and in the critical positions women now occupy in many fields. Women not only have proven their capability of competing with men on equal footing at work, but also have also successfully struck a balance between personal and work life.

    Balancing work and private life is not an easy task for working women. Often, they are forced to choose between the pursuit of a potentially good career, which would mean either giving up on bearing children in the hope of, at best, attaining a position on a board of directors - something which is very unlikely – or alternatively settling down to have a family, thereby accepting that the only option open to them will be an average job whilst they try to juggle work and family life.

    IMC Ladies’ Wing invites you for the panel discussion with renowned professionals, who not only managed to strike a good balance in their work and personal lives, but also broke the glass ceiling in their respective fields of work.

    Panelists:

    • Ms. Surekha Shenoy Kunder, Executive Director, Morgan Stanley
    • Ms. Meenakshi K S, Managing Director, CREDIT SUISSE
    • Ms. Radhika Haribhakti, Founder Director and Head, RH Financial Services

    Since Bollywood's earliest days, women have played a part in its success, both in front of the camera and away from it. Yet it has taken more than half a century for women to assert their presence in significant numbers in Bollywood. Today, Hindi cinema relies on a record number of women who work tirelessly, sometimes invisibly, to keep the world's largest dream factory buzzing. Many women with no prior connections in the industry have carved successful careers despite significant challenges. They work behind the scenes and have cut through the ranks of the traditionally male-dominated field of Hindi cinema to establish themselves and sometimes are the leaders of their craft. You have most likely seen their work but don’t know it. And do you probably don’t know their names. Yet these individuals are helping to improve India's gender equality movement within the Hindi film industry.

    Water is a 2005 Indo-Canadian film written and directed by Deepa Mehta, with screenplay by Anurag Kashyap.

    Set in British occupied India of 1938, the film is as beautiful as it is harrowing, its idyllic setting besides the sacred Ganges River contrasting with the widows' oppressive existence as outcasts.

    It explores the lives of widows at an ashram in Varanasi, India and their diminished position in society. Some of the widows were very young as child marriages were common practice in those days.

    The film has a cast of renowned actors - Seema Biswas, Lisa Ray, John Abraham, Sarala Kariyawasam, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Waheeda Rehman, Raghuvir Yadav, and Vinay Pathak.

    Indian classical dances have a distinct character that reflects the great culture and tradition of our country. The different forms of Indian dance have originated in different states of India but with time they have traveled far beyond the borders of the originating state to all parts of of our country and even beyond, being acclaimed and recognised all over the world.

    Dance is a highly developed art which needs immense discipline and years of training. Many people have adopted various forms of dance as their profession and have earned great fame in their chosen field. Exponents of Indian classical dance believe that it has the capability to help the overall development of mind and body which culminates in a healthy and disciplined lifestyle.

    The Indian Classical Dance is often regarded as a form of worship and meditation. On the occasion of Navaratri, we invite you to witness lecture demonstrations by eminent gurus of three major dance forms – Odissi, Bharatanatyam and Kathak.

    Odissi
    Ms Jhelum Paranjape will speak of dance in general and Odissi in particular and explain and demonstrate along with her students how our body, through different movements and expressions can portray almost anything.

    Bharatanatyam
    Ms Sharada Ganesan will talk about the origin of, spiritual element, technique and training involved in Bharatanatyam and the evolution of the dance into stage art and will demonstrate extracts from certain pieces of the dance form along with her daughter Nandini.

    Kathak
    Ms. Gargi Shah and students will show you how the space around the dancer is used to create patterns and will also perform a Krishna bhajan in Kathak style.

    So let us together celebrate the joy of Navratri with some graceful demonstrations of our very own classical dances!

  • Cracking the glass ceiling: A talk by Justice Gautam Patel - 11th October, 2018

    Cracking the glass ceiling: A talk by Justice Gautam Patel - 11th October, 2018


    Day:       Thursday
    Time:     5.30 pm
    Venue:   Walchand Hirachand Hall, 4th Floor, IMC Building, Churchgate

    Traditionally women have been discouraged from being ambitious, from becoming achievers and super achievers. Even if their own families have not held them back, there may have arisen situations in society or at workplaces which deterred women from seeking a seat at the table.

    What stopped them? It was the proverbial glass ceiling!

    It was coined as a phrase in the 1980’s to signify an invisible barrier faced by women from all walks of life in getting onto the topmost levels of management. Deserving well qualified women are even today denied the opportunity to reach the highest positions in their careers. They are told that they have to earn a seat at the table, which many men can achieve, simply because they are men.

    What is even more tough for women is that once women break through the glass ceiling and take on positions of leadership they are more likely to occupy positions that are precarious and thus have a higher risk of failure as they are not given the resources and support needed for success.

    And then after a woman despite all odds earns her seat at the table, what kind of a voice does she have at that table? Are millennials achieving what their mothers and grandmothers only dreamt of? Or never even dreamt of?

    Justice Gautam Patel, Hon’ble Judge, Bombay High Court, will answer all these questions and more while addressing us on “Cracking the Glass Ceiling” with his unmatched wit, felicity of expression and passion for the cause!

    Join us in this session for an eventful afternoon which promises to be anything but sedate!!

    Every year we celebrate Ganesha festival with pomp and grandeur as we look forward to usher in prosperity, health and happiness. But our joy comes with a heavy toll on the environment. The materials used widely for the creation of Ganesha idols create havoc in the environment as they are extremely hazardous and affect the balance in the ecosystem. The day after the immersion portrays a gloomy picture with the remnants of the idols scattered all over the sea shore, which raises questions about whether this is really how faith in God is depicted.

    Green Ganesha workshop is an initiative to create awareness and stop this environmental pollution. This also provides joy and satisfaction of being able to create your very own Ganesha, and that too from eco-friendly shadu clay. This workshop also acts as a stress buster.

    The workshop will be conducted by Parisar Asha, Centre for educational research and training. They are committed to serving India’s multi-cultural diversity of human communities through an environment–related learning system.

    Duration: 2 hours (Demonstration and individual idol making experience for every participant. Material for the workshop will be provided. Each participant will be taking their individual Ganpati (approx 6-8” height) home).

    Young Women Entrepreneurs - 23rd July, 2018


    Day:       Monday
    Time:     5.00 pm
    Venue:   Walchand Hirachand Hall, 4th floor, IMC Building, Churchgate.

    Many women prefer to get into salaried jobs, preferring the steady working hours, income and perks like health insurance and paid leaves. Entrepreneurship is still perceived as a riskier option, requiring longer work hours and lacking a fixed income every month.

    Women Entrepreneurs can not only contribute to the GDP, but can also play a key role in addressing societal challenges. Women entrepreneurs have to find a balance economically and financially, both on the home front and in their career. Women play a very important and vital role in every aspect of life and therefore it is imperative that they be helped to attain a balance between work, personal life, family life and social life.

    IMC Ladies’ Wing invites you to the panel discussion on the multifaceted role of today’s Women Entrepreneurs who will share their personal experience and insights and how they have made a mark in their industries.

    Women and Criminal Law - 4th July, 2018


    Day:       Wednesday
    Time:     3.30pm
    Venue:  Walchand Hirachand Hall, 4th floor, IMC Building, Churchgate.

    Many strides have been made in the past few years by legislation relating to women in India. Recent amendments to the Indian Penal Code, the POCSO Act (Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, 2012), the introduction of law on the Prevention of Sexual Harassment of Women at the Workplace, the Domestic Violence Act, and many other legal provisions have sharply brought women centric issues to the fore. Much as these provisions aim to protect, there has also been an unfortunate unsavoury trend of misuse of these very laws leaving the field open for debate as to their actual efficacy.

    IMC Ladies’ Wing invites you for the event, Women and Criminal Law, an interactive session with a sitting judge of the Bombay High Court Hon’ble Justice Revati Mohite Dere to explore and learn these facets of law impacting each one of us.

At this event IMC Ladies’ Wing will be releasing their report on Advancing Women’s equality in Asia Pacific and in particular the India Chapter.

His address will be followed by a panel discussion featuring Ms. Gunjan Soni, CMO, Myntra, Ms. Pavithra YS, Co-Founder of Vindhya E Infomedia - a BPO for the differently abled, and Mr. Vivek Pandit, senior partner, McKinsey.
