Human Library’ session
There are multiple facets to a Human Life. No human in this world is deemed to be quintessential and there lies the beauty of a ‘Wabi-sabi’ world according to Japanese philosophy. There is no perennial cure to human fallibility & frailty. In spite of the grey shades of human disposition, every human is a paragon of rectitude. Every human has something riveting and beguiling to share with others. Every human can be a ‘book’ to read out from. DIMR hosted a ‘Human Library’ session organised by ‘Global Harmony Trust’. This idiosyncratic event witnessed 12 human books with diverse substance & gist and many insatiable readers from all across the city.
At DIMR we believe and we have experienced, that “when someone do something for someone, without a reason, what he gets back in return is joy and satisfaction”.
The social initiatives at DIMR are not just the part of our traditions but rather we will say that, it is now a part of the thought process of individuals associated with DIMR, wherein if someone feels like doing something for someone, everyone else joins automatically.
Thus it’s not something extraordinary for us to share with you that how each one of us at DIMR is contributing his part in various social initiatives.
“It doesn’t matter what your 100% is, it only matters that you go ahead and give it your best”. With sun peeping through the dimly lit sky #DIMR students participated in PUNE #Mahamarathon at ShriShivChhatrapati sports complex, the enthusiasm and adrenaline was at its highest as the runners lapped through several categories.
Half Marathon 21 KM
Power Run 10 KM

Congratulations to participants and thumbs up to #DIMR staff and students.
International Women’s Day
Even in the space the stars aren’t overly bright but our planet is an abode to a galore of glittering stars! A fallacy of underrating them as timid has always made them break into a gallop. The iWoman Global Awards (iWGA) is the award to felicitate these stars; the deserving women who are working in various fields and creating deeper impact; to inculcate the “Womanhood” and to celebrate the efforts of this ever growing strong woman force. DIMR MBA students were fortunate to volunteer, interact and be with the stalwarts from different fields at “iWoman Global Awards” on this “International Women’s Day”, 8th March 2019 at Dr. C.V. Raman Auditorium, Pashan. It was a great learning for them to know “How to grow stronger, working in adverse conditions, with your dedication & belongingness.”
Christmas at Sarswati Anath Shikshan Sansthan
The fervor of Christmas is incomplete without the joy of giving, sharing and caring for the unprivileged. #DIMR’s #holisticlearning is the program to make you not just a better manager but a better human being and citizen for India. With this thought #DIMR students celebrated their Christmas with children from Sarswati Anath Shikshan Sansthan and the smile on their faces was priceless.
Climate Collective Outreach Event
“Being ignorant is not so much a shame, as being unwilling to learn”. Unawareness can be spared & worked upon but bewilderment towards the Environment can be fatal for the entire human race.
DIMR in association with ‘Climate Collective Pune (CCP)’ had organised a ‘Climate Collective Outreach Event’ on Sunday, 16th Dec 2018, in an endeavour to enhance the awareness about ‘Environment Preservation and Climate Change Action’ under the Climate Change initiative of the Pune International
The event was chaired by Prof. Amitav Mallik, Hon. Trustee, PIC. The speakers included Mr. Arvind Karandikar, Founder CEO, Nexus Energy who addressed the audience about the intimidating perils of alarming carbon emission and the importance of energy saving, conservation and adopting alternative
Mr. Ravindra Sinha, Co-founder of Mission Groundwater and Water Conservation Activist, spoke about how we need to be proactive in water preservation before its too late. The measures we can take in our routine life to save and preserve water and if we carry on being negligent then no reservoir is enough to quench our thirst.
Its hard work but pure love of Sisters from Prerana Bhavan. Not even a trace of tiredness or irritation while serving young and old, such dedication that inspires many and galvanizes many more. DIMR students on their 5th day of Induction program ‘Prarambh’ recognized the need of social engagement and giving back to the society. On their visit to Prerana Bhavan the students interacted, shared, laughed and learnt to smile with the special ones. A unique initiative taken by DIMR to nurture holistic education and experiential learning for students, that shall pave way for them to become better human beings and not just corporate employees.
Ravet Tree Plantation Drive
Why seek blessings of our forefathers only? Let us save ourselves from the curse of our descendants, for not keeping this planet ‘Green’.
DIMR & DACC joined hands to be a part of Govt. of Maharashtra’s ‘Green Army’, with a ‘Native Tree Plantation Drive ‘at Ravet.
We pledged to keep this planet ‘greener’ for the generations to come.
Donation at Maher
Happiness’ is when you see it on other’s faces. DIMR donated text books, story books, library books, stationary and toys to the kids of ‘Maher’ in Vadgaon Sheri.
Making a difference
There is no greater joy nor greater reward than to make a fundamental difference in someone’s life. – Mary Rose McGeady
DIMR has always considered that making difference in someone’s life and spreading love is its fundamental duty. Here are some photos that reflect the same.
World Sparrow Day
On the occasion of this World Sparrow Day, students of DIMR took a pledge to make this planet a better place for sparrows; plant native plants, provide water for them, feed them regularly, put up nest boxes and spread the message of conservation.
We will chirp for the sparrows and tweet for the sparrows because we love them very much!
Save The Trees Pune
Trees can’t speak; so the teachers & students of Dnyansagar Institute of Management & Research and Dnyansagar Arts & Commerce College along with other citizens screamed on their behalf: “Don’t Kill, Save Us”, by joining hands in a Human Chain at Savitribai Phule Pune University to protest against Civic body decision to chop 29 trees. #LetsBreatheOxygen
Visit to Nachiket Balgram
“There is no more noble occupation in the world than to assist another human being to help someone succeed.”
On the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti Team DIMR had organised “Daan Utsav” where each one donated either in cash or kind. This donation was then given to an orphanage, Nachiket Balgram located in Akurdi, Pune. This visit was a memorable one where everyone was deeply touched by the resilience of the young kids living over there. The visit to the orphanage was a fulfilling experience for all of us as we came back with not only memories but also some valuable lessons.
Visit to PrernaBhavan
“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”
With a view to develop social values in our students we visited Prerna Bhavan. It is a home for under-privileged, mentally challenged children and women. But walking around, it was a pleasant surprise to see how our expectations of a dusty and sad place were replaced by the reality of a vibrant, heart-warming, and welcoming environment.
We gathered the kids and the women for interactive games and dance to help us get to know them and encourage their trust. We spend time with the kids and gave our company to make them feel good which is most important to them. We did our bit to support the cause by donating stationary, Nutritious food items, Board Games etc.
The time spent their made us realize that there is lot to learn from them, including experiences about life such as being grateful and being genuinely happy with what we have.
