In the group below is my dearest friend & colleague the Late Captain Himmat Adisare (sitting 5th from left) a winner of the Sword of Honour in the Academy. I remember fondly his keen sense of humor and inspiring courage. Disregarding pain he took classes with a smile till his last week.  A brilliant tutor in Marketing whose favorite subject was branding. May his soul rest in peace.

Symbiosis management institutes in Pune and elsewhere in India are highly reputed for excellence in Management education. SCMHRD is easily a star among the others. A group of the 2012 -2013 batch gave their presentation and we took some photographs for remembrance sake.

    Can somebody please give some details of Himmat Adisare. His classmates from the 1966 batch (50 years ago) at school are trying to get the information to include in a Souvenir to be brought out soon.
    How did he pass away? What ailment? Any information to contact any of the family members will be welcome.
    Thanking you all in advance and Best wishes.

    Hi Dilip Sir and hello to all our forthcoming batchmates. I miss being in your classes sir and miss you keetki, and all other college mates. All of us together have shared a energy and new vision to life which we carry forward when we start moving on our own paths. A desire to achieve and positive attitude also needs to be learned from Dilip Sir apart from the regular modules. All the best to the new batch.


  10. Ketaki says:

    I think our class is an example of Fun with education with lot of live examples from fareez and and the same time practical approach of binita and a task oriented people like (me) as well … but Fareez is the Highlight and charm of our batch full of energy and confidence … i am sure all of us have learned a lot of good and bad things from each other … now that we are going to be separated in our respective specializations , we wont be having that kind of fun again , but still meet in RM Class … ( with serious faces ) however lets try to find new ways to make the subject interesting so that we can enjoy… like we had a gud celebration with Prof. Phadke, i hope we are going to have such small parties again and again …


  11. Lovely photos 😉

  18. Sachin Macwan says:

    Hi! Sir. It was always great time to attend your 2011 Batch SM (Strategic Management) class. As Richard Branson says “A business has to be involving, it has to be fun, and it has to exercise your creative instincts.” Our class was full of fun & entertainment with sharing knowledge. I really appreciate the efforts you put to motivate each of us and provide a stand to learn life lessons along with syllabus. I can never forget your teaching “Be Joyous always”. Thanks a lot for keeping us & our class vibrant.

      Hello Dominic,

      It is my turn to say thank you. I found it particularly useful in analyzing a case on Marks & Spencer. I am sure your web site will prove a good learning resource for my students on how MNC view emerging and Indian markets.




  27. Sohan Dhande says:

    Hi Sir,
    Gr8 to see your blog growing exponentially. (16,871 hits) —- WOW ……. Congo.
    Its good to see our Group Photograph (TASMAC Oct’2006)

    You have always depicted ideologies a bit different & philanthrophic in front of the world. It was amazing to note the complete portfolio of simple, sobre, calm, active, disciplined, distinctive, inspirational, knowledgeable, understanding & empathetic human being.

    Thanks for being there.
    Cheers !!!


    • dilipnaidu says:

      Oh Sohan I am touched by your sentiments! I am thrilled that after 2006 it is in 2010 you viewed your group photo occupying a pride of place in our blog!

      It is you guys who have given me a purpose! I am savoring all the fun in the company of you young folk.

      Wish you great success and days full of joy ahead!

      With fond regards,



  28. sashikant Pradhan says:

    Dear Sir,

    I was really confused to me to give the answer of
    your asked. Still I have tried to give my view.

    I had taken my specialization as per my basic degree (B.Com) and my
    interested areas like interacting with people, traveling, to know about others, etc, Though I was pursuing PGDBA , we were bound to take combined trades i.e. Marketing + Finance.
    Always choose specialization where you will get pleasure practically on job.There is no relation with what you have studied in basic degree.

    Warm regards,
    Your dear Sashi


  29. dilipnaidu says:

    Welcome Sabeen … Tasmac does invite the Part-time professionals to join the group photograph … but yes an exclusive photo will make sure there is no inadvertent miss..I will request the ‘management’ on this suggestion .. thanks and all the best for 2010 🙂


  30. Sabeen says:

    I think TASMAC have to have a group photo for the Part time students as well…


  31. Santosh Kr. Singh says:

    This is an era of Knowledge management and in Pune we have a knowledge park. Sir these days I am concentrating on getting a job. I have faith and believe to get job early. Because I am trying, trying and trying. If I want anything by heart and mind the God will help me.

    Thank you


  32. Santosh Kr. Singh (ASOM,B) says:

    Its a long time yet I feel the memories of our association in ASOM are still fresh. Because whenever I feel alone I remember some of the incidents and moments in our class. This blog I notice now has a lot more stuff for my learning and for updating knowledge.

    Thank you


    • Dilip Naidu says:

      Hi Santosh,

      It’s so nice to hear from you. Yes it has been quite sometime now. I am sure you must have lined up a good company placement. Please do visit our blog and remain connected. Do also share your work experience.

      Wish you great success in your professional career.



  33. Chaitanya says:

    I will quote last words of my guru Mr. J.R.Kamat, (x-Manager, TSDC, SIEMENS) in his farewell speech.

    “The day we stop learning, we will get blocked somewhere in our life. Continuous learning is the only solution to our seen, unseen roadblocks.”

    The purpose of this blog,facilitating a powerful and dynamic learning tool is sure to flourish & built collective knowledge.


  34. VED OJHA says:

    This snap of course shows “the energy and hunger for learning” but its value can only be recognised by a true visionary “This we call as a great Goldsmith” since, true value of a gem can only be well valued by a good goldsmith; we are the uncut stones of ASOM, and capable of becoming “gems” if a good “goldsmith” like Dilip Sir continues giving us a finishing touch with the learning of values and ethics.


    • Dilip Naidu says:

      Ved …. your comments make me feel truly humble. I am aware how keen and full of energy you wonderful guys are … getting ready for the final take-off and into the corporate world. Well armed with a strong sense of values to make a difference to the society. Thank you indeed.


      • Dilip Sharma says:

        After reading the sentence you mentioned sir i am really to start my Life’s First time corporate experience for which i am into preparation from TASMAC ……those wordings made me more focused.

        i would like to visit your blog regularly sir
