    Train your Brain - 5th May 2021



    Day:     Wednesday
    Time:   3:30 pm
                Through Zoom Video Conferencing

    No matter how old we get, our mental abilities (and even IQ!) are never "set in stone." Because the brain is always adapting and building, our ability to think, remember and learn is never static—it can always be upgraded and improved!

    This means we don’t have to “settle” for the mental skills we currently have. While it’s true that certain brain changes are inevitable when it comes to aging, major memory problems are not one of them.

    Ms. Shilpa Karia is a registered Clinical Psychologist and a certified Cognitive Skills Trainer with 22 years of rich experience in the field of counselling and psychology. She also works as a consultant for various organizations and schools.

    The vast possibilities that the brain offers propelled Ms. Karia to establish B FiT [Brain Fitness for All] - a one-of-a-kind brain-training organization in India, devoted to creating awareness and advocacy regarding the importance of brain fitness. At BFiT, Ms. Karia helps learners of all kinds and ages achieve personal, academic, occupational and social enrichment using scientific evidence-based programs.

    Join us for some fun brain-training exercises that can help you ‘TRAIN YOUR BRAIN, TO UNLOCK YOUR POTENTIAL’.

    Our Indian women have more than proved that they can be at par, if not better in some cases, with men, be it in the Government, Corporate sector, Science field and the Arts not only in India but Internationally too.

    However, there are more women who have unfulfilled dreams and as a society we owe it to make a better world for them. A woman can reach great heights when she is fearless and not afraid for her and her child’s safety. Women and child physical and mental safety is the basic need for any kind of progress.

    Keeping in mind that the responsibility to achieve a safe city has to be shared by citizens, government, police and the society at large, let's all come together to launch a movement to make our maximum city, maximum safe.

    A 70-day drive of 27000 kms from Coimbatore to London covering 24 countries, a legendary road trip turned out to be a life-changing experience. The journey started on March 26 and ended on June 5, 2017.

    Women lead the way on a road trip to London to commemorate 70 years of Indian Independence and to promote the cause ‘Rotary India Literacy Mission’ with the aim to achieve total literacy and quality education.

    It is the stuff dreams are made of – zooming off on a road trip in a high-end vehicle from Coimbatore to London. The expedition covered Myanmar, China, Kyrgzstan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Russia, Belarus, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Serbia, Croatia, Austria, Czech Republic, Switzerland, Germany, France, Belgium, and Netherlands before reaching London.

    A send-off that was attended by over 3000 cheering crowds and over 100 motor bikers leading the way for over 80 kms Flag offs by eminent women like Kiran Bedi to Dr.Najma Heptullah, personal up close meeting and celebratory dinners with over 20 consular generals of the countries they traversed.

    But despite the aura around such a feat there were moments of despair when they wanted to give it all up.

    Ms. Meenakshi Arvind and Ms. Priya Rajpal will share their Epic Road Trip, their challenging journey of exploring the world by overlanding.

These, combined with the maze of canals and over 300 bridges, cause the city to have a distinctly European feel. There are also galleries, impressive monuments and a wealth of museums adding to the glory of Russia’s first great modern city. From the mysterious twilight of the White Nights to world beating opera and fine ballet productions on magical winter evenings, St Petersburg charms and entices in every season.

    Who amongst us has been unclear or not known what to do when a loved one passes away? What if your loved one wanted to donate their organs or kept important bank, property or insurance documents somewhere and you were completely clueless ? Even before Covid- 19 plagued the world, no one was immortal. Hence when death is inevitable, why make it harder on your loved ones ? There is no reason why grieving loved ones should run pillar to post. Hence it is best to be prepared, as much as one possibly can, in uncertain times. This legal committee event is not for women or men alone but should be attended by one and all since it affects everyone !

    BE PREPARED IN UNCERTAIN TIMES…Your legacy handbook aims to offer a simplified yet complete transparent system to organize everyone's life. Being the basis for a wealth guide – the event will help EVERYONE organize not only valuable papers, important information, records of possessions but also determine what is important to an individual or a family.

    It is a great tool and extremely valuable to understand it from a legal perspective and what is admissible in Court as organizing personal, financial and business information can be intimidating. In emergencies and uncertain times, being prepared can help in the simplest ways and be helpful to a caregiver or someone managing the affairs of an individual since it collects all the important information in one place.

    The guest speakers for the session will be - Hon’ble. Mr. Justice G. S. Sistani (Retd.) and Ms. Salonee Sanghvi.

    Justice G. S. Sistani retired from the Delhi High Court earlier this year.

    Time:  3:30 pm
              Through Video Conferencing on Zoom

    Since travel plans are currently impacted virtual cruising will take you to the heart of every destination and fulfil your wanderlust.

    Cruising has been viewed negatively & the safety of its guests questioned, yet few are aware of the highest standards of sanitisation maintained by cruise liners during normal times. Post COVID measures sit at a far higher level making cruising the most experiential & safest form of travel & tourism. Young travel professionals unequivocally stated that Cruise Tourism will be the first of the block once all travel restrictions are withdrawn.

    Since founding and operating ‘Aqua Expeditions’ 13 years ago, it has been the vision and mission of Mr. Francesco Galli Zugaro to create intimate, small ship expeditions to distant parts of the world. What Aqua has stood for since inception, has now come to the forefront, “Access is the measure of luxury”.

    Mr. Francesco Galli Zugaro, CEO and founder of Aqua Expeditions will be in conversation with Mr. Keshav Arya, Partner in PureLuxe by KFT Corporation, Mumbai & will take you on a virtual journey down the Mekong River on Aqua Mekong & through the Komodo National Park, Spice Islands & Raja Rampat in Indonesia on Aqua Blu.

    While doing so, they will portray the variety of excursion possibilities & most importantly cover the new higher safety & sanitation standards under their post COVID measures.

    Day:       Wednesday
    Time:   3:30 pm
              Through Video Conferencing on Zoom

    IMC Ladies’ Wing invites you for an inspiring dialogue between social entrepreneur and influencer - Mr. Ankit Agarwal, Founder and CEO of Kanpur Flowercycling Pvt Ltd. and a well-known journalist and writer - Ms. Devna Gandhi.

    Eight million metric tonnes of flowers are scattered in India’s temples and mosques every year. These flowers are a symbol of devotion and thus believed that these sacrosanct flowers should be discarded into water bodies like the River Ganges to respect their sanctity. Sadly, these sacred flowers rot and create havoc in the fragile ecosphere of the water body and leach into the groundwater.

    Phool.co, a brand of Kanpur Flowercycling Pvt Ltd is a social enterprise that preserves the Ganges River by collecting the floral waste from holy places that is dumped in the river and flower cycling (up-cycling) it into patented fertilizer and incense sticks and in the process providing employment and livelihood to many underprivileged women.

    Hear the story of real grit and courage of a young entrepreneur listed in Forbes 30 Under 30 in 2018, as he sets about cleaning the river Ganges of its gigantic amounts of temple waste that is steadily killing the ecosystem and further breaking barriers by employing marginalized women and giving them the dignity long denied to them.

    Understand the importance and process of flower cycling as Mr. Agarwal will demonstrate how the innovative products are made using the flower waste.

    Mr. Agarwal inspires by example to take action and create the larger-than-life impact you wish to see happen and change what seems inevitably insurmountable and beyond you!

    Food does affect the mood. Hormonal changes are normal in an individual’s journey of life. More so in women, there is a distinct correlation between hormones and mood which at many levels is associated with food.

    There are certain foods that scientifically act as potent anti-depressants and these foods are none other than the yummy cookies, pastries and chocolates.

    But when we are trying to maintain the weight & achieve certain body composition goals, these high calorie carbohydrate rich foods are eliminated first.

    • Is there a right way to get a balance between mood & food?
    • To get that “happy feeling," and still meet our body goals?
    • Does a compromised state of mind get better with eating cookies?
    • Should we sit with a bucket of ice-cream to overcome our Monday blues?
    • Does a bar of chocolate eaten on a bad mood day justify our food choice?

    Kinita Kadakia Patel is India’s leading Sports Nutritionist specializes in sport-specific diets along with weight management. She has established a leading nutrition centre called 'MEALpyramid'. She is the official Sports Nutritionist for the Mumbai Indians team of the Indian Premier League. She holds a graduate & post-graduate degree (MSc.) in Dietetics with research in Sports Nutrition. Besides this, she has further qualifications from globally reputed institutes like: The Oxford College – London | Sports Dietetics Association – Australia | International Sports Science Association – USA.
