Mr. Munjal discussed the importance of adapting to change, citing examples of the Hero Group’s journey, the importance and humility of appreciating other people’s work, and shared how people need to lead by example, take criticism constructively and always possess the desire to learn, in order to be ready when tomorrow comes.

The most recent 5th masterclass featured Hon’ble Nobel Peace Laureate, Kailash Satyarthi and an accomplished social worker. The session was hosted by S.K. Munjal, Chancellor of BMU & Chairman – Hero Enterprise. The wide-ranging discussion touched upon the impact of Covid-19 world over and what progress is being made in context to child safety and how he is working relentlessly with the peacemakers and social workers to ensure that no child is abused even during the current pandemic. There was also a mention of the Smart City concept which could act as a yardstick to have a child friendly environment in the plan, this would be a great leap of faith not only for the marginalised community but also for one and all. He also stressed that the leaders and peacemakers are demanding 20% of the grants for global support to counter the problem of child abuse and trafficing should reach out to the lowest/last mile of the society post pademic era to make their lives secure and sustainable.

During the conversation Kailash Satyarthi said, “It was really an interactive session with Sunil Kant Munjal. As a society we should work towards supply chain of gratitude so that each one of us can shift our mindset to inculcate a deeper sense of gratitude towards people/workers who keep us safe under all conditions be it the laborers, farmers, municipality workers and many more who are engaged in this laborious task/s for our wellbeing”.

“The trust has to be built by everyone in the society and we should see ourselves playing the role of a torch bearer in some way or the other to see a new tomorrow”, said Sunil Kant Munjal, Chancellor-BML Munjal University & Chairman, Hero Enterprise.
