IIPM Manavata Vikas Awards - An iconic eventIIPM Manavata Vikas Awards - An iconic event he IIPM Manavata Vikas Award ceremony, which was organized under the aegis of The Indian Institute of Planning and Management (IIPM) on April 15, 2010, was an event notable not only because of the phenomenally eminent awardees, but also because of the presence of some of Indias leading intellectuals, academicians and industry luminaries at the event.
In a country where there are more movie awards and fashion show felicitations than conferences on betterment of poor people, the IIPM-Manavata Vikas Awards have, at the outset, created a new benchmark for being explicitly and unabashedly supportive of socially relevant work targeted towards the destitute and hugely disadvantaged sections of the society. It is supremely unpardonable that India has allowed decades of debilitating poverty to continue growing with hundreds of millions being added to the list every year. Although the IIPM-Manavata Vikas Award might not be effective in the short term in reducing the collective plight of the poor sections, it is but a surety that this is an award series that will gain considerable national momentum in the years to come and much international recognition too.
The awards were divided into two key categories. The first category was the category for contribution to the progress of humanity, management and economics. The second was a special category for contribution towards the upliftment of West Bengal and its people since IIPMs Manavata Vikas Kendras centers working towards on-the-ground social support activities have their roots in Bengal.
The noted and most highly respected awardees, who were felicitated with a gold medallion, citation and a Rs.5 lakh monetary prize, included:
* Famed octogenarian Padma Vibhushan Mahasweta Devi, for dedicating her life towards the upliftment of the tribals the adivasis, lodhas, shabars, santhals, among others. IIPM Manavata Vikas Awards - An iconic event * Pradip Bose, for his incisive analysis of political and economic systems, predicting the downfall of Stalinism everywhere and promoting democratic socialism.
* Sunanda Sanyal, for his lifetime dedication to the well-being of students and for his active contribution to restore democracy in West Bengal.
* Dr Ashok Sanjay Guha, for establishing newer perspectives to economic growth theories.
* Medha Patkar, the renowned leader of the Narmada Bachao Andolan movement, for her selfless and untiring contribution in taking up causes of the displaced poor.
* Shuvaprasanna Bhattacharya, for his contribution in organising the Bengal intelligentsia to restore democracy in West Bengal.
* Gurcharan Das, former MD of PandG Worldwide and eminent public intellectual, for his contribution to people centric management theories.
* Swaminathan S. A. Aiyar, Consulting Editor of The Economic Times, highly lauded writer and economist, for his contribution in making complex economic problems easily comprehensible to the common man.
* Belur Sramajibi Swasthya Prakalpa Samity, for its contribution in making advanced healthcare facilities available to the poorest of the poor.
The Chief Guest for the occasion was Dr. N. R. Chatterjee (Former Dean, FMS, Delhi University and current Dean Faculty Development Programme, IIPM). The main speakers at the award event included Dr. Malay K. Chaudhuri (Founder Director, IIPM and Chairman, IIPM Manavata Vikas Awards Committee), Prof. A. Sandeep (All India Dean, IIPM), and Prof.
Arindam Chaudhuri (Hony. Dean, IIPM).
Speaking on the occasion, Dr. M. K. Chaudhuri said, IIPM has always aimed at developing a three-dimensional personality in its students pursuit of knowledge, commitment to economic, social and cultural upliftment of masses and cultivation of taste for literature and fine arts. This award is a reflection of this aim of the institute and also a part of the institutes commitment to promote individuals who share a similar vision for the nation. IIPM Manavata Vikas Awards - An iconic event On being conferred the award by the Chief Guest Dr. N. R. Chatterjee (who came down from the podium as a mark of respect), Mahasweta Devi emotionally thanked IIPM and announced that the award money would be spent by her purely for the wellbeing of the tribal people who have been denied their basic fundamental rights. Professor Sunanda Sanyal, who was greeted with spontaneous clapping that went on for minutes, shared, Though I have not done much, this award is a pointer to inspire me to do much more from now on. I will set up a trust using this award money to help poor students. And though Im a pensioner, I will donate another Rs.5 lakhs from my savings as a matching grant.
Medha Patkar was represented by Kamala Yadav, secretary to the Narmada Banchao Andolan (NBA). She communicated Medha Patkars message that Rs.1 lakh out of Rs.5 lakhs would go for the upliftment of the tribals in Bengal and Jharkhand. The rest would be allocated equally to an amalgamation of several movements including Chipko, Chilka Banchao Andolan, NBA and National Alliance for Peoples Movement. Dr. Swaminathan Aiyars son accepted the award on his behalf. And Phanigopal Bhattacharjee representing the awardee NGO Belur Shramajeevi Swasthya Prakalpa Samity announced, After providing best healthcare to thousands of poorest of the poor, we are now coming up with a 500-bed super specialty hospital especially for the underprivileged.
The distinguished audience included, amongst others, three of the former Deans of FMS, University of Delhi, who have been associated with IIPM for more than two decades. Prof N. R. Chatterjee, himself one of them, at one instance during the ceremony, introduced the other two deans Prof. J. K. Mitra and Prof. M. P. Gupta and spoke about how IIPM and FMS have been together since IIPMs very inception more than three decades ago.
Giving the vote of thanks, the Hony. Dean of IIPM, Prof. Arindam Chaudhuri said, Survival of the fittest is not a humane rule, but animalistic. A human being always should and will help the weakest to survive and to be equally fit. To that effect, Prof. Chaudhuri thanked the awardees for having worked tirelessly for the development of the weaker sections of the society and through that, striving towards promoting equitable growth in India.
