Mental health problems may be one of the dominant stress factors that hamper the growth of students and the issue is now being prominently discussed by medical experts.
College students face mental health problems due to study stress, personal problems and stressful life. It is at this age that students need to get guidance on stress management and how to be happy in life.
Keeping this in mind, Gomantak's Young Inspirators Network has organised a special programme for students at the Narayan Zantye College Of Commerce, Bicholim, where the internationally renowned motivational speaker, Riyaz Bharucha, will guide the students on tackling mental health issues.
Bharucha will conduct a session on 'Asses your strength and control your stress' that will help students know to manage stress and do away with its negative impact on their lives.
Bharucha is a member of the Vedanta Cultural Foundation, an international organization, and is a senior disciple of the internationally eminent Vedanta philosopher Swami A Parthsarthy.
He has completed his higher studies in hospitality management, catering technology and applied nutrition. He is also an accomplished instructor of effective communication, certified by the Trinity College of Music, London.
A deep interest in understanding the truths of life led Bharucha to take the three-year residential course in Vedanta philosophy at the Vedanta Academy. Thereafter, he dedicated himself to full-time research and propagation of Vedanta.
Vedanta roughly translates to mean the end of knowledge, broadly designing the pursuit of happiness through logical and systematic exposition of eternal truths.
Vedanta asserts that the goal of life is to realize and manifest our own divinity. This divinity is our real nature, and the realization of it is our birthright.
Over the last two decades, Bharucha has addressed diverse audiences on the subject of Vedanta, both in India and abroad.
Senior management of corporates and organisations like Piaggio Vehviles, Weikfield Pvt Ltd, Coca-Cola India, LGT Wealth India, and KEF Holdings have benefitted from his presentations.
He conducts regular workshops on Vedanta that enable self-development through self-discovery. He has also written several research papers on Vedanta which have been published in both national and international journals.
