Once again I had the good fortune to be invited to a prestigious event hosted by the Higher Colleges of Technology given in our very own Abu Dhabi Men's College Auditorium. Despite only finding out about it this morning, I was lucky enough to have a gap in my teaching schedule which allowed me to attend the Official Book Release of "Governing Business & Relationships" by Swami Parthasarathy. From attending the Swami's lecture his book is a self-help book. If you know me, you know how dear this topic is to me.
This event was so in demand that every faculty member who received an invitation and wasn't already teaching a class couldn't stay away. When the lecture ran into the next teaching period, all in attendance remained seated. I was a little concerned until I saw a few of the students in my next class who couldn't tear themselves away. These sudden events seem to be a trend and I'm looking forward to hearing about the next one.
