Visit to Dharmasthala by PGDM 2017-19 Batch

‘Take the pressure as pleasure. You will not feel it but enjoy it. Who hasn't pressure in this world? I too have pressure but I take it as pleasure which tests my capability to come up, not to give up. The pressure which is given by your teachers is to make you moulded and to prepare you to face the challenges in your profession. You have to take it as an opportunity to prove yourself’ thus said Dr. D. Veerendra Heggade, Dharmadhikari of Dharmasthala and Chairman, SDMIMD, for the question ‘How to handle pressure and depression?’ during the interaction with the new batch of PGDM 2017-19 students.
