Trip to City of Dreams - ‘Mumbai’ Pathways World School, Gurgaon
On 19th September as a part of their curriculum, 36 B&M and Economics students with 2 Faculty Members of Pathways World School visited the city of Mumbai for a 3 days trip.
Their trip included visits to the Institute of Management and Entrepreneurship (ISME), where the faculty briefly described their ‘5 Ecosystem of Schools’ and programmes the institute had to offer. The visit to Dharavi, the second largest slum of Asia was a highlight of the trip where they were shown the metal/plastic recycling, earthenware, digital printing on fabric and leather making enterprises, and were amazed by their simplistic, but efficient methods.
The students captured the glimpses of the city’s diversity while venturing over the Worli Sea Link. They understood the system of the most important facet of the city which is ‘Dabbawalas’-‘lunchbox deliverymen’, which has also been acknowledged by the Forbes as a 0.001% error-free system. The students got an opportunity to observe the segregation of the boxes and interacted with the deliverymen. The visit to the Bombay Stock Exchange provided the students information on open/close markets, importance of timing in the stock market, reasoning for the lack of automation in the system.
The students visited the St. Regis, one of the most prestigious hotels in the world, in which they attended a very informative workshop on Hospitality.
The students also enjoyed sight-seeing the city whilst savouring the famous street food.
The trip was a great balance of the education and fun, and the Students learnt a lot of aspects related to their subject through this wholesome journey.
