  • A Blooming Story of Mr. Ankit Agarwal - 5th August 2020

    A Blooming Story of Mr. Ankit Agarwal - 5th August 2020


    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 & Mental Health by Ms. Kinita Kadakia Patel - 21st July 2020

    Food & Mental Health by Ms. Kinita Kadakia Patel - 21st July 2020


    Day:       Tuesday
    Time:   3:30 pm
              Through video conferencing on Zoom

    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.

    Let’s get the answers to these questions through an insightful webinar with Nutritionist Ms. Kinita Kadakia Patel.
