The prolonged pandemic has had children staring at an uncertain future, what with important exams being cancelled and schools and colleges being shut indefinitely. Parental anxiety, too, has increased in more ways than one.

The JIS Group took an initiative to ease parents’ worries about their wards’ careers by organising a panel discussion with academics and corporate leaders on June 20 to mark Father’s Day.


The speakers advised students and their parents on smart choices for a successful career.

On the panel were Chandernagore Government College principal Debasish Sarkar; TCS Co-Innovation Network vice-president and global head Debasis Bandyopadhay; psychologist, behavioural trainer and facilitator for learning and development Devlina Lahiri; and Ayushman Initiative for Child Rights secretary Arijit Mitra.

The panel discussion was followed by the rebranding of the logos of two colleges under JIS Group — Guru Nanak Institute of Hotel Management and Sur Institute of Technology and Sports Complex. The event concluded with the announcement of 20 winners of the Papa Kehte Hain Bada Naam Karega contest.

“This Father’s Day has been extremely eventful for our entire group, starting from rebranding the logo of two of our institutes to felicitating 20 of our students who have participated in the Father’s Day Special contest. Moreover, we are delighted to have been able to ease the pressure on parents and answer their career-related queries,” said Taranjit Singh, the managing director of JIS Group.

The brainchild of Sardar Jodh Singh, the JIS Group has under it more than 30 educational institutes across eastern India, offering over 140 courses to more than 37,000 students.
