Chancellor of OP Jindal Global University urges students to be inspired by those fighting against all odds
Naveen Jindal, chairman of Jindal Steel & Power and chancellor of OP Jindal Global University, was a guest speaker at Xavier’s Management Convention ’21 (XMC), organised by St. Xavier’s College. The former member of Parliament spoke on “the untapped lessons of resilience behind a saga of success”, dwelling on entrepreneurship, politics, sports and life.
Here’s Naveen Jindal’s advice for youngsters:
-- When one tries to do everything at once, things are bound to go awry. One must learn to prioritise their to-do list and focus on things that matter.
-- We need to figure out in which profession we can make the greatest contribution. Take up issues and work out a plan to solve them, but review whether your efforts are adding up to what you wanted to achieve.
-- One mantra from Gary W. Keller and Jay Papasan’s best-selling book The One thing will stand you in good stead. That is, ‘Do not waste time doing things which seem easier but are, in fact, unnecessary. Important tasks will be difficult, but the key is to not shy away from them. Make hay while the sun shines.’
-- We must work together in order to prosper as a country. The key is to be compassionate towards each other.
-- Count your blessings and draw inspiration from the people who are fighting amid worse situations. Always remember to search for the good in the bad.
-- Start-ups have a huge future ahead. Aspiring entrepreneurs should make the best use of modern technology. Plan and amplify your services with the resources available.

“Listening to Naveen Jindal speak about his life was a great opportunity for us students. His take on start-ups and what one can achieve with the right resources was really motivating. He also asked us students to finish what’s necessary and not keep things for the last minute,” said Yash Chowdhary, a third-year Bachelor in Management Studies (BMS) student at St. Xavier’s College.
“Hearing Jindal sir talk about his life has inspired us to a great extent. His work for the Zero Hunger project initiative, which aimed at ensuring that no one goes to bed hungry, particularly appealed to me,” added Naman Jain, a third-year BMS student of the college.
XMC ’21, the three-day virtual convention held from April 21 to 23, was organised by the Xavier’s Management Society of St. Xavier’s College. ABP Education was the digital media partner for the event.
