“Nothing ever becomes real till it is experienced”- John Keats

Industrial visit is a part of the educational tour as well as professional course, during which students visit companies and get insight of on the internal working environment of the company.It provides students with an opportunity to learn practically through interaction, working methods and employment practices. Moreover, it gives exposure from an academic point of view. Industry visits sensitize students to the practical challenges that organizations face in the business world. Industrial visits also give greater clarity about various management concepts for students as they can practically see how these concepts are put into action.By visiting the shop floor they get to understand the risky conditions in which workers work, the people management challenges involved in managing workers apart from getting hands-on technical knowledge.

KEY BENEFITS TO STUDENTS

The student involvement at all stages of the industry visit motivates them and helps them take full advantage of all learning opportunities presented. This brings a different dimension to students’ learning, which they cannot gain in the classroom as well as helping to bridge the gap between industry and academia.

  • Exposure to better industrial and business practices in progressive economies.
  • Get to know  business skills in a global context encouraging cultural interaction
  • Visits to manufacturing firms are useful for students to understand the nuances and realities of the shop floor, which in itself is a rare exposure.

Every year Surya World organizes industrial visits of students for enhancing their knowledge regarding different kind of fields. It provides confidence as well as overall personality development to the students. An industrial visit was recently organized by Surya School of Business Management, for the students of MBA, BBA and B.Com to Kudos Chemie Ltd.(Manufacturer of Caffeine Theophylline and other Chemicals), Derabassi. The students learnt about the production and operations management in Kudos Chemie Ltd. The company also has their own school for the village children and the socially suppressed backward caste people, arranged medical camps, blood donation camp etc, which enlighten their Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

    bhangra Punjabi folk music is highly rhythmic, and very diverse. The western region is the home of styles like dhoola and mahiya, while the popular boli style is performed different across the region. The vocals are another integral part of Punjabi music, as are instruments like the dhol, tumbi, dhad sarangi, algoza and Ektara

The Birthplace of Bhangra

The birthplace of Bhangra, Punjab is a region extending over part of Northern India and North eastern Pakistan. Translated, the name “Punjab” means the “Land of Five Rivers.” The people of the Punjab are called Punjabis and they speak a language called Punjabi. The three main religions in the area are Sikhism, Hinduism, and Islam. Around the time of the 15th Century, Guru Nanak Dev founded the Sikh religion, which quickly came to prominence in the region. The 19th Century saw the beginning of British rule, which led to the emergence of several heroic freedom fighters, the subject of many Bhangra songs. Finally, the Punjab was split between Pakistan and India at the end of British rule in 1947. This partitioning resulted in a large migration of Punjabis into the United Kingdom, which eventually led to the emergence of Bhangra in Western clubs and dance halls Bhangra is a lively form of music and dance that originated in the Punjab region in Southeast Asia. As many Bhangra lyrics reflect the long and often tumultuous history of the Punjab, knowledge of Punjabi history offers important insights into the meaning of the music. Moreover, during the last thirty years, Bhangra has enjoyed a surge in popularity worldwide, both in traditional form and as a fusion with genres such as hip-hop, house, and reggae.

Bhangra Today

Bhangra has come a long way in the 20th Century and has recently taken the entertainment industry by storm. In the 1970s and 1980s, many Punjabi singers from Southeast Asia and the United Kingdom emerged, setting the stage for Bhangra to become a hot new trend in dance music. Modern Bhangra artists, in addition to recording and performing traditional Bhangra, have also fused Bhangra with other music genres, such as hip-hop, reggae, house, and drum-and-bass. Surya World has a vibrant student team of Bhangra and Malwai Gidda who are bringing laurels to us wherever they perform. At Surya World, we provide students with a platform to showcase their talents in a number of ways. We organize techno- cultural events and students are also encouraged to participate in various such events being organized elsewhere.
