Social reputation is the product of intellectual capital and the social capital the Organizations hold”. “I hope this small initiative will enthuse and inspire the young minds by the infinite knowledge that is embedded in those thousands of books being received by them and ignite a spark  that will help knowledge transcend generations, so that the fruits of this shall come back as new and renewed energy to strengthen our society”, he added.

As a symbolic gesture of book donation, Prof. Debashis Chatterjee handed over one copy each of the book entitled “Let’s Learn” to all the beneficiary colleges, an edited work of Prof. Chatterjee and three  other IIMK faculty members.
