Guest Lecture By Rev. Father Dr. Ignaci Muthu
To the students of Diploma in Counselling Skills (DCS-17) of
Banjara Academy, Bengaluru, 6 September 2016.
It was a privilege and honor to once again host Rev. Father Dr. Ignaci Muthu, SJ, renowned entomologist and eminent educationist, to interact with the students of our DIploma in Counselling Skills (DCS-17) course. After Ali spent the day with him at TCS where the two of them (with two more vice-chancellors) are advisors on the Academia Interface and Affirmative Action programs, Fr. Ignaci readily agreed on short notice to visit Banjara Academy before he left for Chennai.
Father was Principal of the reputed Loyola College, Vice-Chancellor of Madras and Bharatiyar Universities. He currently heads the Entomology Research Institute and is a visiting professor in reputed universities in 3 different countries. He is also very humane and has written a number of books on life skills and youth development.
Father’s session at Banjara Academy was very interactive, with questions ranging from role of insects in our life to life after death. He stressed upon building up self-esteem and confidence in young people, which alone can empower them to achieve up to their full potential.

Leading Banjara Academy's online email counselling team of volunteer-counsellors, I realize it is not an easy task reaching out to a person one has never met, never seen, without the added advantage of gestures, eye contact, a gentle reassuring touch, tone of voice and yet providing empathy, positive strokes, making the person feel heard and understood.
With the aid of only written words, it is quite a task building trust, making people open up and share and helping them cope and feel better. So when in many instances they write back saying thank you and that they feel so much better, the feeling one gets is priceless and incomparable - knowing one has done something right, something good!
Hats off to all the volunteeer-counsellors of Banjara Academy who have been carrying on this work silently, anonymously for the last couple of years. Truly commendable! - Ali Khwaja
