Renowned psychologist and counselor, faculty of IGNOU, Prof Shankar Bhusari, delivered a session on Emotional Intelligence – It’s Applicability in Industry at VIA Auditorium, Nagpur. He said that Emotional intelligence (EI) plays a vital role to become successful in life, for which sustained efforts should be made since early age of life.
Prof Bhusari stressed on impact of biological needs and psychological functions such as curiosity, manipulation, action potential, affiliation and association on development of Emotional Intelligence (EI) in a natural surroundings. However, further elaborated that Emotional Intelligence (EI) can be developed through classroom training in educational institutions and through training modules in select industries.
He said, Intelligence without emotions is flawed in the sense that a successful person cannot progress by depending on a single element. He or she has to have emotional quotient to understand what is happening around and act accordingly to the changing situations. He further explained four components of Emotional Intelligence (EI) i.e. self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, social skills and corresponding 20 factors, which are very important to deliver performance in the industry.
Any successful person, be it an entrepreneur, politician or a bureaucrat, has high IQ, but all they need to be emotionally intelligent too. He cited the example of kids and said they can be intelligent up to a particular limit beyond which the emotional intelligence comes into picture. Those who can develop it become successful, who show their excellence in their chosen field. Many aspects of emotional intelligence are still not known to the world and experts will have to dig deep to know where from it comes.
Prof Bhusari further elaborated about understanding the five categories of Emotional Intelligence (EQ) i.e. Self-Awareness, the ability to recognize an emotion as it happens, which is the key to ones EQ. He said that developing self-awareness requires tuning in to ones true feelings. If you evaluate your emotions, you can manage them. Self-regulation, you often have little control over when you experience emotions. You can, however, have some say in how long an emotion will last by using a number of techniques to alleviate negative emotions such as anger, anxiety or depression. A few of these techniques include recasting a situation in a more positive light, taking a long walk and meditation or prayer. Motivation, to motivate yourself for any achievement requires clear goals and a positive attitude. Although you may have a predisposition to either a positive or a negative attitude, you can with effort and practice learn to think more positively. If you catch negative thoughts as they occur, you can reframe them in more positive terms which will help you achieve your goals.
Prof Bhusari added, Empathy, the ability to recognize how people feel is important to success in your life and career. The more skillful you are at discerning the feelings behind other’s signals, the better you can control the signals you send them. Social skills, the development of good interpersonal skills is tantamount to success in your life and career. In today’s always-connected world, everyone has immediate access to technical knowledge. Thus, people skills are even more important now because you must possess a high EQ to better understand, empathize and negotiate with others in a global economy.
He concluded by saying, Transformation of energy from a state of mind to another is emotional intelligence. He also discussed the importance of behaviour to become successful, saying that it is but natural that every action has a chain reaction. He stressed about a model on interpersonal and intrapersonal intelligence, which was mainly made by his personal experiences that he learnt during his research.
Dr Suhas Buddhe, Hon Secretary VIA, in his welcome address said, Successful people mostly worked on IQ and intelligence only. Prof Busaris guidance on EI would definitely help participants to take corrective decision in their routine day-to-day life.
Earlier, Atul Pande, President VIA, welcomed the guest speaker with floral bouquet. Neelam Bowade, Covnener HRD Forum, introduced the speaker and also conducted the proceedings. Prominently present were Jt Secretary of VIA, CA Naresh Jakhotia, Anita Rao and Prof Anil Tijare. Industry professionals and students largely attended the session.

Naatu Naatu composer MM Keeravani is a great musician; just that he’s underrated: AR Rahman
SS Rajamouli’s ‘RRR’ has been making news for the past few weeks. Be it winning Golden Globe for the song ‘Naatu Naatu’ or being nominated for Oscars 2023, composer MM Keeravani is a national name now. The Oscar-Golden Globe-Grammy awards winner, AR Rahman said, spoke about MM Keeravani in a recent interview.
Expressing that Keeravani is ‘underrated’, he said, “You know what? MM Keeravani is a great composer, it’s just that he’s underrated. And I’m not sure if it’s true, Keeravani wanted to quit music in 2015 and retire. In fact, that’s when his career had actually started. And everyone noticed it. I believe when someone thinks their life is over, that’s when your life starts. You just need to live. I even tell my kids the same, ‘that gentleman (Keeravani), who’s been in the industry for 35 years, wanted to quit so early when his career actually started at that point.”
This video of Rahman’s interview about Keeravani has been appreciated on social media. And many users have also praised him for his positive and inspirational statements. Moreover, Keeravani will be conferred with Padma Shri this year, who once thought of quitting and wanted to retire in 2015.
