Summary of the Event:

 

Through the joint efforts of the management department at the institute of management studies & KreaNabo – The Buzz Communication Cell, a talk session- The Non-Binary Show was organised with the primary motive of sensitizing the youth about what life is like for a trans person and to celebrate the Pride Month.

To make this event a success Ms. Nayana Udupi , Transwoman was invited, she is a Marketing Associate  with ThoughtWorks Technologies , a Bengaluru based organisation (India).


The session was begun by the opening moderator Mr. Shiv N Bhardwaj, with a short introduction to the Institute of Management Studies & the KreaNabo. The chairperson - Management Department Dr. Geeti Sharma welcome the gathering and gave her gratitude to the guest for accepting the invite. Further Mr. Shiv N Bhardwaj  asked  4 questions about what life is like for a trans person, such as who is Nayana Udupi to herself and to the world at large, what is teenage like for a trans person, and more, he then proceeded to hand off to Ms. Mansi Bansal who continued the questions that had been collected from students over the previous week.

 

Besides Mansi Bansal, Sheel Shukla, Poorvi & Kapil Garg were part of the questioning moderators they posed interesting and widely varying questions ranging from what would Ms. Udupi’s advice be to a young trans person listening in, what her opinion is about sex transformation surgery and lighter questions such as what genre would a movie made about her be, how she chooses to destress and relax in life, etc.

 

Ms. Udupi provided inspirational, thought provoking and very emotional answers that touched the hearts of more than a few participants, she shared stories of struggle, how she had to approach 22 companies before she was hired, how she was fired from a freelance source of income since she is a transwoman

 

Overall the session was incredibly rich in both, knowledge and in the depth of the guest and her experiences, the session was then pushed towards an end with a positive question of what message would Ms. Udupi leave the IMS family with, she left us with more than a few impressions and definetely a lot of inspiration to continue fighting for our rights in life .

 

A video was then showed created by the KreaNabo members as an ode to the anonymous champions who fight for trans rights. The cell coordinators Prof.Yagbala Kapil & Prof.Aastha Sawhney appreciated the efforts put in by the members of cell in successful completion of event.The closing vote of thanks was proposed by the Sr. Consul to the KreaNabo - The Buzz Communication Cell.

Learning Outcome: The students got to learn the real hardships of society and how one can achieve everything with strong will and determination.
