The speakers talked about leadership, motivation, and improvement of skill sets can be imparted by reading Mahabharata. They also mentioned that, every time we read it, we can learn new skills.


They also talked about team work and group dynamics and how they can relate it to Mahabharata. Winning strategy of Mahabharata was one of the important topics discussed. How to turn weakness into strength, how to make allied forces, how to share responsibilities, how team work succeeds when individual efforts fail are very well discussed by taking stories in Mahabharata as examples.


Along with the paper presentation, on the first day of conference Mrs Neelima Bhat with her group performed dance for about 30 minutes which is about feminism and ability to use feminine brain.
