Vegayan’s day out at Innovations 2011

Thursday, January 20th, 2011

Yet again, Vegayan was one of the shortlisted companies for its innovative products at INNOVATIONS 2011 hosted by Persistent Systems at their sprawling campus in Pune. There were altogether 14 such companies which showcased their innovative technology/products at the event. It was a one day event which started off with a keynote speech by Mr. Chetan Maini – the man who designed India’s first electric car –“Reva”. This was followed by Innovator presentations (Group I) which included Vegayan’s presentation. The presentations were followed by a common Q&A session wherein lots of inquisitive queries were asked by the audience; with equally interesting answers from the Innovators.

This was followed by a lunch-break cum exhibition at the exhibit floor where the Innovators had setup their stalls for showcasing their innovative ideas/products. Vegayan stall also had a good number of visitors who wanted to get more details about our company and products, our customers, the markets we cater etc.

After about an hour at the exhibit floor, we were again ready for yet another exciting round of Innovator presentations (Group II) and a common Q&A session. This was followed by a short tea break.

In the last session, an interesting presentation was delivered by L R Natarajan of Titan Industries- Jewellery Business Unit (Tanishq) on how its innovative practices revamped the jewellery business in India.

It was indeed a wonderful experience watching Innovators present and demonstrate their novel ideas. Few of these were quite impressive and if implemented, would bring in lot of benefits for the common man in terms of utility and affordability.

Success and Happiness – Dr. Hiru Bijlani

Thursday, November 8th, 2007

Last week Dr. Hiru Bijlani conducted workshop for Vegayan team on “Roadmap for Success and Happiness”. Dr. Hiru has a distinguished career as management consultant and trainer. He has authored many books related to the above subject matter.

It was not a typical lecture (“gyan”) from the management “guru” as, it involved high level of participation from our team members.


Things I liked in this workshop are:

1) We set out company goals and saw how each individual would play role in achieving it.
2) We talked about things that apply to our day-to-day activities related to work situation, relationship, health etc.
3) Everyone was encouraged to make affirmations which helps in bringing focus and building self-esteem.

There is lot more than this but, for those details go to Dr. Hiru website at

MPLS Training sessions at MTNL

Some of us (Amit, Dakshina, Prashant and Vijay ) from Vegayan attended the two days sessions on MPLS Technology at MTNL, Training Centre in Hiranandani, Powai. Prof. Girish Saraph was the speaker in those sessions. The sessions were attended by high ranking officials from MTNL. I must say it was very good experience to know about the latest in MPLS Technology tracing through earlier connection oriented technologies like X.25, frame relay and ATM. I am eagerly looking forward to gain from similar events in future.
