From My Heart... Vol. No. 55 January 2020 The Foundation Newsletter My dear Daughters Friends and Well Wishers T his sure is a very busy time. From July to now we get fully occupied with planning for the new academic year Scholarships. In July the procedure starts in setting out the criteria for the current year redesigning the application forms uploading the same and setting out the detail schedules from opening of the scholarships to closing of the availability of forms for various categories and then the interviews. This needs to be done for all four districts Pune Wardha Amravati and Nagpur. The interviews of all categories take almost 26 plus days. After fnishing the selections we start to prepare for the scholarship award function. Award function is normally held at the end of November / 1 st week of December. Following the award function we have about 4 to 5 days of orientation for the new batches. At this program our new daughters are introduced to LPF and its Ethos goals mission and an overview of the past and plans for the future. They are also informed about what is expected of them and all procedures to be followed throughout their period of scholarships. All this surely is a massive exercise for the entire staff and goes on almost until end March when the frst claims of scholarships end and the New Year starts with preparation and planning for the school scholarships. I thought it is good to share with you all these details so you are aware of the effort that goes in every year to add on a new batch. This year it was the 24 th batch. I now continue to share with you my personal experiences as I grew up in the corporate world. After working in Ruston and Hornsby for just about a year Dad and me decided to get married. Since the British Firm had a rule that husband and wife cannot work in the same company as managers one of us had to leave. Thus I decided to resign as Dad was holding senior position and getting a better pay package. It took me just about a month to fnd another job. I was waiting at a bus stop to catch a bus home when my contd. on page 2... school Hockey coach passed by and stopped to say hello. On knowing I was looking for another job he informed that Vulcan Laval now Alfa Laval where he was working was recruiting apprentices and if I would be interested to apply. I jumped at the opportunity and immediately sent I my application. I was shortly called for an interview. My brother volunteered to take me on his motorcycle for the interview. At Mal Dhaka near Sassoon hospital he stopped at a traffc signal I was rather relaxed sitting behind as a pillion rider when the signal became green the motorcycle started and I fell off the seat but held onto the rear seat handle. I could not let go as there was a big bus behind and if I would have let go I would have been crushed under the bus. My brother was totally unaware and I got dragged for a good number of meters until the crowd shouted at my brother and he stopped. By than my right arm was totally damaged and was bleeding. I had two choices go back home and get my arm attended to or continue to go for the interview. I decided on the later. My brother of course left it to me to take the call. There was a big surprise for me as I entered the room for my interview. There were 6 managers all male in the room to interview me. All very inquisitive to see who is the young girl mechanical engineer wanting to work in an engineering company. One by one they put out their hand for a welcome hand shake. I was in tremendous pain with my right hand damaged from my fall and all of them wanting to give a nice strong hand shake. If I do not respond they would conclude ‘A girl cannot even give a nice strong hand shake how can she work in our company as an engineer. I honestly needed a lot of determination to go through this. Thereafter some technical questions followed and fnally the last question was really both very amusing and in my opinion very unfair . The personal Manager now the same work profle is called HR Manager asked me the most embarrassing question. ‘Miss Thadani that was my maiden name you say you want to work on the shop foor for hands on experience now on shop foor there are only male workers and there could be some diffcult situations such as one of the worker winks at you. What

2 would be your reaction and handling of such a situation” I felt it was an irrelevant and untimely question to ask a young girl coming frst time in the industry and looking for making a career. I could have said so but that meant I would never get that job so I answered very boldly and quite innocently “Sir I would wink back at HIM” Surely this took the whole team by shock. Seeing the surprise on their faces I quickly added “Sir the other alternative is to come to you with a complain but knowing I am the only girl on the shop foor and that is creating trouble you would ask me to leave rather than take any action on your workers. But I want the job and thus I will have to learn how to deal with such situations”. I think my answer appealed to them and I got the job as an apprentice in Vulcan Laval. Thus started my journey from Apprentice to CMD of the company Alfa Laval. I have never looked back. More in my next dialogue with you soon. It is also time to wish all of you a MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR. We are soon going to step into our 25 th year of our beloved FOUNDATION. Let us line up a lot of new celebrations. Good luck and God Bless Mom to all LILAS Friend to all readers From My Heart... contd. from page 1... Corporate Partner Engagement A n Industrial Visit to HCL Technologies was organized for Wardha Amravati and Nagpur Lila girls. LPF has arranged this Visit as a part of Industrial Exposure Program. HCL is a MNC spread across 36 countries and over 100000 of the world’s best-trained IT consultants. They explained about values of HCL like leading change Integrity Excellence Learning and sharing. The objective behind the visit was to make Lila girls aware about how a software company works various services available and job opportunities. Industrial visit to HCL was highly appreciated by girls who fnd it full of knowledge. Girls got to know working methodology of MNC Company how the people are working and gained invaluable industrial exposure on this trip. HCL visit at Nagpur The workshop was conducted by volunteers of Dassault Systemes at LPF Offce. The session started with the introduction to Dassault Systemes by Ms. Mayuri Kharde.Futher the topics included were Email Etiquette enhancing communication skills Resume writing and go beyond horizon were Mr. Kunal Vardhan Ms. Madhavi Gupta Ms. Charumati Deshmukh and Ms. Rudhi Kadam. Lila Girls got an opportunity to interact with Mr. Lionel Burgaud Vice-President Outcome-based engagement and Mr. Bijuraj Balakrishnan – Director at Pune Dassualt Systemes Services. Girls fnd the sessions more interactive and interesting. Presentation skills by Dassault Systemes We are so much thankful to HCL for enhancing their support to LPF. We look forward to stay connected with HCL and to take our partnership to newer heights for years to come.

3 Mrs Meena volunteer from Seco Tools instructing LILA girls LPF organized a factory visit for the girls of Mechanical Production and Electronics Telecommunications engineering where theygot a chance to experience the corporate environment in the organization namely Seco Tools India P. Seco is one of the world’s largest providers of comprehensive metal cutting solutions for milling stationary tools hole making and tooling systems. The visit was planned primarily to give a frsthand experience about how a manufacturing setup is and also to add on some practical knowledge to get the overview of organizational structure and visit to various departments like Research and Development Tools Production and Inserts Production. This exposure visit helped LILA Girls to gain practical knowledge. The most amazing part of the visit was watching the robotics performing the work.It was a unique experience to share our knowledge with our future generation. Amdocs organized a wonderful Diversity Walk for 3 rd and fnal Engineering Lila Girls. Ms. Vidya Jayakrishnan Head of CSR at Amdocs took the initiative to interact with the girls. In this session she spoke about her own successes and failures. The main aim of this session was to help the girls stay motivated and overcome their fears. The session began with visit to Shinde Chhatri. The girls also visited the Car Museum and got the opportunity to see the vintage cars. It was very nice experience for LGs and wish to thank Amdocs for this engagement. Diversity Walk Sociothon An exclusive orientation session around ‘Sociothon’ was organized by volunteers and CSR leader of Amdocs Employee for LPF Scholars. ‘Farmer Distress’ was the theme and challenge statement was how technology can help farmers to come out of agrarian crisis waste management and how it can be converted into a resource. Another session took place in the month of October. Corporate Partner Engagement Path Finders S hivani Mathankar LG-2016 was born in the village of Pavani in Wardha district. Her father is a farmer and mother is a housewife at Pavani whereas for their will to get proper education Shivani and her brother live in Wardha. Despite of having a very low income their parents are working hard to fulfll the educational requirements of children. She had inferior complex due to fnancial status since most of the girls in the college belonged to affuent families which gave her different feeling. During this time only she decided to focus on her education and turn into a strong and successful woman. After completing Diploma with 80 she wanted to take admission for a graduate degree in engineering but managing the fnances was tough. Paying high fees of college for her and younger brother along with other expenses was next to impossible and found herself helpless. That time she came to know about LPF from one of her friend. She was over the moon after getting news of

4 Aishwarya Navghane LG-2013 was born into a typical middle class family in Chinchwad Pune. Her father was a driver with no education and no fnancial support. He took up the responsibility of providing for the family at the age of 28 due to the demise of his father. However her father had bigger dreams for Aishwarya and her elder sister. He wanted both of them to become engineers. His hard work paid off when Aishwarya completed her SSC from Camp Education Society with a score of 80 followed by a 3 years Diploma in Mechanical Engineering with Distinction and secured admission for engineering in JSPM College Pune. It was diffcult for her to pay the fees for engineering course. It was at this time that she found out about Lila Poonawalla Foundation and applied for it. Receiving the scholarship was a life changing moment for her. LPF is a unique foundation that does not restrict itself to providing scholarship to the selected girls. Once you become a Lila girl the foundation takes care of you in every way possible. They provide help not only for the academics but also grooms in your personal life. Talking about her experience Aishwarya says “When after good academic record I got a backlog in BE second year. Lila Mom asked me to meet and enquired about the problems that I had been facing in my personal life which could have led to the backlog. She then sent me to Ashwini Singh a counselor associated with LPF.” To relieve father’s stress Aishwarya got married in 2015 when she was about to start her final year at the age of 20 years old. It was the toughest time after marriage to cope up with expectations from new bride but she did not give up. She took a leap of faith and there was no turning back now. She thanks her supporting husband and in laws who not only allowed her to completely focus on studies but shouldered all her education fees and put up with a studying young bride. Despite all the ups and Khushali Umate LG-2014 has completed graduation in Computer Science Engineering from Wardha with great support from LPF. After completing graduation she was working as a Business Analyst in a company in Indore. For her wish to learn about new technologies she started looking out for different opportunities and pursued a course in Data Science in Pune. Being a vast feld it was diffcult for her to get a job even after completing the course. She faced several interviews but couldn’t clear them. For months she continuously prepared for aptitude tests and interviews and attended campus drives. Two months ago she came to know from the consultancy frm for whom she was working regarding IBM placements. She cleared all the tests and got selected as software engineer trainee at IBM. She moved to Bangalore for training at Manipal. She got placed in her dream company. She says “Lila Poonawalla Foundation played vital role in my success. They not only helped me complete my graduation but also helped me become a strong independent woman. They guided me at every step towards the right decision. Mom is my Idol and I want to be like her. She is generous helpful and an inspiration for all the girls. LPF helped me achieve my goal and now it’s my turn to help the girls in need and turn them into independent Lila fellows”. - Khushali Umate LG-2014 her selection for scholarship. Her parents were also very happy and were released from monetary stress. She could complete her degree in engineering computer science from Datta Meghe Engineering College. She says “LPF has not only given me fnancial support but has also helped me grow by providing workshops such as self-defense personality development grooming and etiquettes and many more. With each Workshop I became more confdent and focused towards my dreams. I have consistently passed each semester with frst class and also topped in my class. Currently I am in the last semester of engineering and I achieved 75 in 7th semester”. She got campus placement in Atos Syntel Pvt. Ltd. Pune with package of Rs 310000/-. She feels all of this was possible only due to LPF which made her a confdent and responsible girl. Shivani will always be thankful to the foundation for the support. Shivani feels to be blessed as being part of LPF and wishes to be a successful women like Mom and do something good for society. - Shivani Mathankar LG-2016 Path Finders downs Aishwarya completed BE with distinction. It was a proud moment for her and her father. Post engineering Aishwarya got a job as an Oracle Developer with a small-scale IT company with less salary just for experience. After 2 years of marriage and a year of job lie had started looking upwards for Aishwarya. However it was at this time that her father passed away. She credits her husband for helping her through this tough phase by being by her side and providing courage. In 2018 Aishwarya gave birth to a beautiful girl Anaya and she flled their life with joy and happiness like never before. Aishwarya had continued to work till the 8 th month of pregnancy travelling by public transport. That time God sent angelic help in the form of Lila Mom. She sent resume to Mom. Earlier than expected Aishwarya got a call from KPIT. Aishwarya got her offer letter in March 2019. There was one last twist in Aishwarya‘s life before she could have a happy ending. “KPIT asked me to join at Mumbai location and I had to leave my 11-Month-old daughter at home in Pune and leave for Mumbai. But it’s a small phase and will pass through. I joined KPIT last month as Oracle JDE Developer. I am all grown up now a strong and proud mother with a well settled career. I owe my success to Lila Poonawalla Foundation and Lila mom. She helped me not only with my education but also with my career.I would love to be part of the foundation for the rest of my life.” - Aishwarya Navghane LG-2013

5 Joy of Giving “Life is process during which one initially gets less and less dependent independent and then more and more dependent”. - Mokokoma Mokhonoana Diwali 2019 was indeed a special one for the old folks at Swarnavihar Old Age Home. Peace Ambassadors of 2019 celebrated Diwali at the Old Age Home with the people staying there. The PAs distributed sweets and exchanged the thoughts about life and experiences by adding a little cheer and sparkle to the environment of Swarnavihar. M ary Rose McGeadytruly said that “There is no greater joy or greater reward than to make a fundamental difference in someone’s life”. I believe that each of us has a personal calling that is as unique as a fngerprint and that the best way to succeed is to discover what you love and then fnd a way to offer it to others in the form of service working hard and also allowing the energy of the universe to lead you. I remember my mother always told me if you earn 100 Rs. Keep aside 10 and utilize this money for needy people or social work. The smallest deed is better than the greatest intention. I always followed my mother’s advice. I have so much interest in social work. I am not only involved in Foundation’s social activity but also try to do a bit individually. For last 4 years on the occasion of Rangpanchami and Children’s day we I and Iq media pvt. Ltd. Dhankwadi organize an event called “khushiyoke rang bachhoaurbadoke sang” for Orphanage children Janseva Foundation Katraj street children and old age people. In this program we spend an entire day and celebrate Rangpanchami with these children and old age people. We arrange some activities where these students get chance to show their talent like singing dancing paintings and group activates. We also donate school kits and snacks. While conducting these activities playing rangpanchami with them we saw real happiness on their faces. We always fnd happiness around us. But the real happiness is a bird which shines in our hearts. Happiness is a butterfy which shines on our palms. Happiness is a spontaneous sensation that smells in the mind. So beautiful is happiness then why don’t we get it It is scattered around us “yatra tatra sarvatra means everywhere” and we are wandering like musk deer. For it which is in us is from us. It is in our hand to fnd the way of giving sharing and caring. Our team members are putting efforts to make this program more interesting. Some of the volunteers in our team are working studying but still they fnd and give their precious time for making the children and old age people happy. This enthusiasm to spend time with them make them happy is giving us more confdence. We always talk about inclusiveness this is the actual way to inclusiveness. - Rita Shetiya LF- 2005 PA – 2011 Diwali At Swarnavihar Old Age Home Khushiyoke rang ….

6 Joy of Giving “S hubharambh2k19” is initated by Peace Ambassador 2017 batch. The inauguraton was done by the chief guest Padmashri Ms. Lila Poonawalla Chairperson Lila Poonawalla Foundaton and Founding Trustee Mr. FirozPoonawalla and CEO Ms. Prit Khare were the special guest of the event. The 2 day event had everything stalls with good food handcrafted items arts and craft dress materials and much more. The Peace Ambassadors 2017 raised overRs. 1 lac in this event and the amount was donated to Lila Poonawalla Foundation. Over 80 entrepreneurs small scale businesses and our very own LILA Scholars too had put up their own stalls.The Event also had a prize distribution ceremony where three stalls with the most sale won the prizes. T he Peace Ambassadors PA 2017 and 2018 batch of Lila Poonawalla Foundation provided a small helping hand to the food victims of Maharashtra food in the districts of Sangli and Kolhapur by raising funds. They donated school kits and sanitary napkins to Ashtvinayak Mitra Mandal Ambegaon pathar for the further help to food relief for Kolhapur and Sangli under the Project ‘HELPING HANDS’ and ‘HER NEED’ respectively. LPF has inculcated values of giving back not only within LILA Scholars but also family and friends. LPF along with LILA Alumni’s supported the food affected families in Sangli Karad and Kolhapur by donating new blankets sarees and food grains in addition to cash donations to Pune Jagruti Group for further help of food affected area. LPF has been supporting the victims facing challenges from natural calamities in India. A Mother of one of our PAs Rita Shetiya has contributed 32kg rice. - Rita Shetiya LF-2005 PA-2011 Helping hand to the food victims Shubharambh2k19

7 Our Research Scholars E ducation is the most powerful that can be used to change the world. And it surely changed Revathi Nathan’s life Lila Fellow 2010. Revathi’s father was a scientist at DRDO and after his voluntary retirement he is working as a consultant for companies to ensure that they maintain their ISO standards and meet the environment safety standards as well as safe working conditions at the companies. Her mother is a housewife and a yoga/ftness enthusiast. Her elder brother graduated with an MBA is working as a marketing executive at Ashok Leyland. In 2010 when Revathi decided that she wants to purse a Master’s Degree in United States Lila Poonawalla Foundation provided her with scholarship. Talking about this scholarship Revathi says “Unlike many other scholarship programs the LPF scholarship provided more than just the cheque they ensured that the fellows traveling outside the country had a good support system and gave us a crash-course on how to live in the US.” Revathi has completed her Ph.D. in aerospace engineering from University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. When asked about her research area she says “As a young high school girl I was fascinated by the night sky especially when we move away from the bright city lights. On a camping trip organized by my feld hockey coach we went to Panshet dam. It was here I was introduced to astronomy in a talk given by a research scholar under the starry sky. In that moment I decided that I want to go to space As I started honing my skills in mathematics and science my interest in space science matured from merely wanting to go there for learning the methods of building a spacecraft that will send humans as well as probes to space allowing us to learn more about this incredible universe”. For her Ph.D. research Revathi focused on two aspects of space travel frst an effcient thermal protection system that protects the spacecrafts and payload from the extremely high-temperatures that they are subject to during planetary entry and second in-space electric propulsion devices that are required to propel the human-made probes away from earth farther into our solar system once they are sent into space. To study these two important questions she came up with computational software that solves a system of equations used to model the physics at such high-temperatures. If we used our laptop to perform these computations it would take at-least half a century to complete on set of calculations. Thus to speed up the process of predictions required for designing effcient spacecraft systems Revathi used supercomputers those have more than thousand processors to solve the problem within a couple of days. Analysis of the predictions allowed her to the study the role of material microstructure on the rate of heat of transferred to it and then estimate the thickness of material required to protect the spacecraft from the high-temperature environment. Using the same computational tool she modeled the plume high- speed jet of charged particles namely electrons and ions to study how the plume species interact with the solar panel causing the solar panel of the satellites to fail. These studies helped her to predict the life-time of these satellites once they are sent to space. “From my Ph.D. research we studied how high- temperature gas fows through the thermal protection system material during planetary entry and predicted the degradation rate of these materials for a mission-specifc condition. This will enable us to optimize the material thickness required for designing the thermal protection system of spacecraft” adds Revathi. Explaining about how this research is helpful Revathi says “The research that I did for my Ph.D. will allow for more effcient in-space propulsion systems that ensure that the constellation of satellites maintain their respective orbit as they are required for GPS navigation on Earth. These types of propulsion systems can also be used on space probes such as Voyager 1 which visited Jupiter and Saturn and relayed delayed images back to Earth.” Every experience teaches something. “Two mains things: tenacity and patience. It takes a long time to fgure out answers to research questions. There are a lot of ideas and approaches that will fail. But we learn something from these failures and they give us an understanding on what might possibly work. It is a lot of hard work and requires focus and dedication. Eventually the right result will lead to innovation or new approach of solving something. It is truly an adventure and we should enjoy the process not the result is what I understood from my experiences” shares Revathi. Revathi is currently a postdoctoral researcher at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. She says that most of the skills that she learnt during her Ph.D. are transferable to other plasma-based applications. Plasma is one of the four fundamental states of matter which consists of ions and electrons and have a collective response to electric feld. Some plasma examples in every-day life are the plasma displays in our TV screens lightning and even Northern lights – Aurora Borealis. Revathi is working on modeling plasma-based linear accelerator devices which are a promising technology that has a wide impact in the areas of energy industry science and medicine. The same set of equations that can be used to describe a plasma-based device can also be used to study pulsars. Pulsars are highly magnetized rotating neutron stars that are like a rotating light house in space emitting radio waves and gamma rays. The discovery of these stars by Jocelyn Bell Burnell and her advisor eventually was recognized with a Nobel Prize in 1979. “There are some plasma effects that are still not well understood and we are using leading edge computing facilities to model these stars and the plasma environment surrounding it to understand the physical mechanisms that cause the emission of radio waves and gamma rays. My future plans are to continue my research on using computational methods to study plasma physics in devices as well as in the astrophysical

8 context” answers Revathi when asked about her future plans. Initially fueled by curiosity and a strong interest in space-related science Revathi started her research on developing computational methods to improve the design on planetary entry probes and in-space propulsion systems. However the research that she’s now a part of modeling of plasma-based linear accelerators has a broader impact on medicine energy fundamental science and industry. Additionally the work on astrophysical applications will help us understand the universe that we live in better. Revathi believes that even though some research questions may not have direct impact on what we do the research methods and understanding we obtain from studying these applications can be useful to study other systems that have a require a similar set of skills. LPF has played a huge role in Revathi’s life. Talking about the foundation Revathi says “LPF is family They created the right environment for a seed to sprout and provided wings to fy and send their love unconditionally. Aunty Maya visits the US often and has always connected with us despite her busy schedule. Recently when my parents were here in California we met with Maya aunty for lunch and had a great time Lila Mom and Feroz dad are an inspiration” Revathi wishes to be a part of LPF programs that will motivate young girls to take up science math and engineering. She would like to meet with the Lila girls and introduce them to the beauty of science and math Our Research Scholars when she returns to India from US for vacations and show that its applications are all around us. “I would also like to do my bit in adding to the funds required for the education of our Lila girls” shares Revathi. Revathi wishes to say to Lila sisters “First of all dream big and go for it Be curious and don’t hesitate to ask questions to your teachers and mentors. Aim for excellence and give your 100 in everything you decide to undertake. I am biased towards math science and engineering since this feld is fascinating and leads to a fulflling experience especially when we fnd the answers to the questions that we have been asking. Also we need more girls to join the community and create a better tomorrow. So I encourage the Lila Juniors to stick with math and science and give their best and join the team of future scientists to design new computers new materials new devices that can be used to cure ailments and even travel to space Read a variety of books on a variety of topics and try out new things and stick with the topics that fascinate you the most. It is not always easy to reach your goal but sometimes you have to climb the tallest mountain to get the most beautiful view of the sunrise. Stay determined and disciplined about your goals and actions to achieve them and you will get there and go even further. Finally always remember the people that helped you get to where you are and be grateful for their help. I wish you all the very best in your endeavors.” - Tazeen Shaikh LG-2017 R adhika Dorlikar LG- 2017 has made LPF proud by securing the 1 st Runner up position at the Smart India Hackathon 2019. Radhika is studying in her 2 nd year of Engineering from Wardha. She had participated in the Hackathon along with her team members. The Hackathon was held in Mohali Punjab in March 2019. The teams were given a problem statement of the Central Ministry and had to propose their solution for it. A duration of 3 to 4 days was allotted to them to think over it. After this started the real challenge. They spent almost 36 hours coding for their proposed solution. With the Mission “To create opportunities and employment for rural youth” and the Vision “To provide healthy food for society” they submitted the idea of organic bag portal and their solution got selected. There were 120+ solutions to the same problem statement. Only 4 were selected and Radhika’s team was among them. The Hackathon was an excellent learning experience for the team. They got an opportunity to interact with our Prime Minister Narendra Modi for their awesome work. The Panel of Judges included people from various renowned IT companies like Infosys Persistent etc. The winning teams were also offered Internship opportunities by these companies. In this entire journey Lila Mom was a big motivation for Radhika. Mom’s hard work and dedication inspired her to give her best at the Hackathon and keep all the fear away. “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”. This achievement is just a small beginning for her and now sky is the limit. Lively Lilas

18 “T raveling for me is a passion since childhood. For me it’s all about enjoying a new place understand different people their customs nature beliefs and enrich my life with good experiences. I am happy traveling with friends family or alone. The most important idea is to travel whichever way it may be” our travel explorer Ms. Deepa Krishnamurthi LF-2005 PA-2008 shares her Bhutan visit. This time my friend Ms. Aparna Bhandar LF-1998 and I decided to explore Bhutan the land of thunder dragons. Bhutan is a mesmerizing place in the clouds with lush valleys tiered rice paddy felds rich forests and rushing rivers. A place that measures the success of the country not on outputs or fnancials but on the Gross National Happiness of the people who live there. It is ruled by King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuk and Queen Jetsun Pema Wangchuk. We began our journey by fight from Pune-Delhi-Paro. One can also visit Bhutan by traveling from Bagdogra to Phuetsholing and then to Thimpu capital of Bhutan by road. It is remarkable to know that there are only 8 licensed pilots in the world authorized to land on the Paro runway since it is at an altitude of 1.5 miles above sea level amidst towering peaks of 18000 feet. Post immigration we proceeded to Thimpu which is 3.5 hours drive from Paro on our way to Thimpu we also visited the Tamzhing Lhakhang monastery and the oldest bridge in the country. We also saw the Parochu means Paro river which was crystal clear this drive was completely beautiful and worth the entire effort. Here in the land of the Thunder Dragon culture and spirituality are at the core of everyday life. People in Bhutan are very friendly and can speak Hindi as well as English. Ngultrum is the currency of Bhutan equivalent to our Indian rupee and accepted by all vendors. We were fortunate to have Pubhshriing as our local guide he explained to us about gross national happiness GNH index. The four main aspects of GNH are sustainable and equitable socio-economic development environmental conservation promotion of culture and good governance. The government decides any reforms based on these principles so that the people are happy and contented. The next day we went for sightseeing around Thimphu where we visited the various highlights of the city. We visited the Buddha Dordenma Statue which is 177 feet in height and is believed to promote peace in the world then the national museum Motizhang Zoo where we saw different deer families and the national animal of Bhutan i.e. ‘Takin’ then the national library the handicraft market where we had an array of shops with handicrafts made from Yak wool. Did you know the traditional dress for men is Go and females are Kira in Bhutan We spent the remaining part of the day enjoying each other’s company and exploring the local culture. Early morning we made our way to Punakha. On our way we also stopped at the Dochula Pass where 108 memorial chortens or stupas known as “Druk Wangyal Chortens” by Ashi Dorji Wangmo Wangchuk the eldest queen mother in honor of the 108 Bhutanese soldiers who died in 2003 military attack. After that we visited Punakha Dzong which has beautiful Buddha paintings and it has a temple dedicated to Shabdrung who was one of the pioneers of Buddhism in Bhutan. It is believed that this temple has the preserved body of Shabdrung and a relic brought by him from Tibet only the royal family has access to this temple. After that we had delicious Bhutanese cuisine comprising of Nake datshi a kind of beans cooked in cheese and ema datshi a dish comprising of chilies and potatoes. People in Bhutan have yak cheese and potato as their main cuisine they prefer organic food. Post lunch we explored river rafting in the punachu river which is the confuence of river Ponchu and Manchu. The next day we visited the Paro Dzong and the Ta Dzong which is a national museum comprising of different pictures depicting the culture of Bhutan and pictures of the royal family it also had different types of masks used in festivals. I noticed one remarkable thing people here celebrated the birthday of the king by planting 2 00000 trees on 2 nd June 2019. This shows their inclination to preserve nature for future generations. We also visited Kyichu Lhakhang which is one of the oldest and sacred shrines of Bhutan. The specialty of this shrine is a statue of Buddha with a thousand arms this temple also has an orange tree that bears fruit throughout the year. And now comes the highlight of our entire trip to Bhutan we visited the Chele la pass which is the highest motorable pass in Bhutan. The journey through was exhausting but after we reached the top the view was mesmerizing. Explorer Bhutan: The land of Thunder Dragons contd. on page 19...

19 Chele La is a mountain pass located in the western region of Paro valley it is between the Haa valley and Paro valley. In the month of August the Chele la pass is full of blue poppy national fower of Bhutan. The scenic beauty of the place left me completely speechless We got back to Paro in the evening where we witnessed traditional folk dances like Yak dance archery dance song performances etc. each state has its own folk dance like India. Archery is the national sport of Bhutan. A true highlight of the tour and of any visit to Bhutan is the Paro Taktsang monastery Tiger’s Nest. This is one of the most highly rated walks in the world and you’ll soon see why It is believed that Lord Padmasambhava who was one of the pioneers of Buddhism in Bhutan traveled on the back of Tigress and meditated at this place for three years three months and three days. Tiger’s nest lies on a cliff around 10240 feet above the Paro valley. There are 8 temples situated at the top dedicated to Explorer Bhutan: The land of Thunder Dragons different incarnations of Lord Buddha. It takes about 2.5 hrs to reach the top and 1.5 hrs to descend. The view at the top is simply mesmerizing it’s about a 12 km hike with an inclination of 40 degrees and only physically ft person can do the hike. The trip ended by sharing experiences with travel companions and a promise to stay in touch. A trip to Bhutan is an eye-opening life-changing experience. This trip was one of the best of my life and I feel privileged that I got to share it with my friend. The beauty of this place is absolutely surreal and unmatched. Every day of this trip will remain fresh in my memory forever this trip has only further fueled my desire to see the world and I will defnitely be going on more of these adventures soon. - Ms. Deepa Krishnamurthi LF-2005 PA-2008 contd. from page 18...

32 Special Feature E conomics is the study and research towards understanding how societies governments businesses households and individuals allocate their scarce resources. Further the study explains how they interact with each other in producing and maintaining livelihoods. The subject ‘Economics’ is intellectually fascinating and challenging. The discipline of economics has mainly two important features. • Economists develop conceptual models of behaviour to predict responses to changes in policy and market conditions. • They often perform statistical analysis to investigate these changes. The discipline of economics looks at mainstream economics in two major ways in terms of Microeconomics and Macroeconomics. L ila Poonawalla Foundation in collaboration with the ASHA Centre UK started the ‘Peace Ambassadors Program’ as a very special program for developing future global leaders. 24 Smart scholarship recipients of LPF have been selected for this 3 week ‘Wholesome Development and Sustainable Leadership Program’ at ASHA Centre Gloucester UK. Through this program this 9 th batch of 24 girls got chance to develop their personal and people leadership skills through various workshops like Self-Refection workshops they learnt how to identify life’s challenges the art of listening to their inner voice Biodynamic farming the difference between empathy and sympathy fnding inner resources exploring the energy of change and learning how to build strong relations. This entire learning experience and exposure enhance their self-confdence. Till now 166 Lila Girls have completed this program and returned as smart enlightened confdent young ladies contributing to the society through various community programs. To top it all they spent an entire day at the OXFORD University. They have also got the opportunity of exploring London and some museums and historical places including London Bath Gloucestershire St. Anthony’s well Vertical Sky Garden London Eye Madame Tussauds Buckingham Palace and British Parliament. This program is sponsored by Samena Foundation of UK for last 4 years. This year the programme had an immense impact due to some of Samena Capitals inspiring friends being a part of it. This included Toby Malhoutra who organised a talk and tour of the Dynamatic Technologies’ factory in Swindon. We also had ex-England cricketer Owais Shah leading a cricket session and Lucia Labuzik running a workshop on building lasting relationships. On graduation day guests included Sikander Khan Principal Advisor for UNICEF Komal Syal Managing Director at Standard Chartered and Krishna Saraf Founder and Vice Chairman of Samina Capital who spent time with the young women and delivered motivational speeches. The young women were also invited to attend the home of Anil Agarwal Executive Chairman of Vedanta Resources Limited on their last day in London who inspired them with his life story.

33 Microeconomics analyses basic elements in the economy including individual agents and markets their interactions and the outcomes of interactions. Individual agents may include for example households frms buyers and sellers. Macroeconomics analyses the entire economy meaning aggregated production consumption saving and investment and issues affecting it including unemployment of resources labour capital and land infation economic growth and the public policies that address these issues monetary fscal and other policies. The major difference between microeconomics and macroeconomics is that Microeconomics studies individuals and business decisions while macroeconomics analyses the decisions made by countries and governments. Microeconomics focuses on supply and demand and other forces that determine price levels making it a bottom-up approach. A practitioner of economics is called as an economist. In the present time economists play a role at all levels anywhere and everywhere right from performing advisory functions to policy formulations and handling large size data in a formal as well as an informal setup of an organization. They also contribute to the development of many other public policies traversing across a wide dimension of subjects including health care climate change social welfare school reforms labour market dynamics economic development and efforts to reduce inequality poverty unemployment regional disparity pollution etc. Technology economic institutions peoples’ preferences and biology are some of the important determinants of economic outcomes. There were several economists like Physiocrats and Mercantilists who acted as advisors to the rulers of their time. Economists aspire for a better world where their subject will secure conditions in which all the people fourish and live with happiness. Economists also carry out independent research on various pressing areas and subjects related to upcoming areas as Institutional Economics Development Economics Industrial Economics Labour Economics and New Institutional Economics. These are areas and subjects of interest which play an important role in various sector of growth and development of industry and agricultural sector of an economy The study of economics helps a person in understanding human behaviour and behavioural patterns in cultivating analytical and argumentative skills that are crucial for winning job in the present-day job market. The job markets are based on the Theory and cyclical patterns of economic growth and on the study of economics. With the drastic transformation of the economy in the recent decades there is a growing demand for trained economists from diverse felds such as government fnance and banking social sector management business policy making and teaching. In the mundane world we are forced to make economic choices in our daily lives. Economics teaches us many things like how to make rational choices under scarcity how the aggregate economy works how to interact in society how to interpret events how to participate in a democracy as a responsible citizen etc. Studying economics equips individuals to take better decisions leading to increasing the economic security and well- being of the people living in the society. The role of Economics is thus multidimensional it focuses on the behaviour and interactions of various economic agents and factors and further it also analyses how the various economies work in the long as well as the short run. Thus we can argue that Economics is a social science. The subject matter of economics deals with the analysis of economic problems of people in the society and the satisfaction of their wants. With the evolutionary changes of the society and its civilization the subject matter scope of economics has expanded. Scope of economics can be looked in the following manner. 1. As social science economics deals with the economic activities and behaviours of human being assuming that all humans are rational in their thoughts and thinking process in the long as well as short run. 2. Resources are needed to satisfy people’s wants. So the availability of resources and their use are important subject matter of economics. Adam Smith has termed economics as the “Science of Wealth”. 3. People’s wants are unlimited. But the resources to satisfy the wants are scarce. Economics discusses how men can get the maximum satisfaction by using the scarce means to satisfy wants on the basis of priority. 4. People’s wants are related to production exchange distribution and consumption. Again currency banking system public fnance trade etc is also parts of economic activities. Economics discuss these issues also. Besides how economic development of the country is achieved through the means of economic planning is also included in the subject matter of economics. 5. Economics discusses the economic problems and economic activities and indicates proper solution to these problems. Economics also discusses about the value judgment of human actions and behaviour. Importance of the Study of Economics In modern times the importance of the study of economics is infnite. It is not only providing us knowledge but also helps to solve the different problems in real life. The importance of economics in different areas of human life is briefed below: 1. In the everyday life of people 2. In the rational and apt use of resources 3. In state of management and related services 4. To social workers and academicians 5. To the leaders with respect to Labourers - Sonal Mohite LF-2012 interacted with Dr. Anagha Mitra LF-1996 Learning Economics What is Economics and why understand Economics contd. from page 32...

It gives a great platform to all our LPF Family members who wishes to give back to the community. ‘Contribution of fnancial support to your very own LPF is helping many deserving girls like you to pursue their education and career dreams’ is the main moto of this program. It will be impactful and satisfying when each member of our LPF family steps forward and supports these girls to turn their dreams into realities. This is an opportunity to turn this imagination into realities with your gesture of giving and being an investor by contributing to the society. Over 1000 LPF scholars enrolled in the program and taken a pledge to donate to support girls’ education. This was a unique and precious gift to their ‘Mom’ on her 75 years of remarkable journey Over 600+ LPF Scholars School Teachers Principals and Well Wishers were present to celebrate Mrs. Poonawalla’s birthday and witnessed this program launch. They were given varied options to support education of equally aspirational and deserving girls to turn their dreams into realities. Mrs. Lila Poonawalla said “What I planted as a seed of hope 24 years ago in 1995 by holding hands of 20 Daughters is now blossoming into a LPF Family Tree with over 8500 of you as it’s precious members I always had a dream to keep our LPF Family ever growing Next year LPF will be entering into its 25th glorious year.
