“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.” - Benjamin Franklin

The above words very well define the learning methodology practiced at IIT Kanpur, where the transfer of knowledge is emphasized through “Involvement”. The MBA department at IITK is well known for realizing and meeting the corporate world’s requirement for Techno-Managerial skill sets. And the learning experience can be judged by the presence of erudite professors.

A person with ordinary background but extraordinary willingness- started his journey with two colleagues Fatik Bera & Partha Samanta in 2001,  for the unorganized women in rural unbanked areas with only 2 lakh rupees as cash, in West Bengal.  Their venture, a NGO named Bandhan was following a typical business model that was successfully established in Bangladesh, named Grameen Bank, brainchild of later Noble laureate Muhammad Yunus.
