BIMTECH beams on its silver jubilee as Dr. R.K.Pachauri enlightens BIMTECHIANS- BIMTECH - Birla Institute of Management Technology
BIMTECH was highly honoured as Dr Pachauri lifted the spirit of the event with his gracious presence. Dr. Pachauri pondered over some of the great sayings by Mahatma Gandhi. Mahatma Gandhi had once said that there are seven things that will destroy us -Wealth without Work, Pleasure without Conscience, Knowledge without Character, Commerce without Morality, Science without Humanity, Religion without Sacrifice and Politics without Principle. Dr Pachauri opined that there is a huge significance of Gandhi’s message in the present context and it is not enough to remember Gandhi just once a year. Moving on to the present scenario he discussed how the Indian industry should regard itself as a trustee and a servant of the poor. Making money has always been the motive of all the corporates but its vulgar display is what is making the situation worse.Flashback: No, it’s just Pachauri who was feeling too hot | Herald Sun Andrew Bolt Blog
Dr. Pachauri spoke of adopting a holistic pattern of development that ensures sustainability of the ecosystem, equality between people and welfare of the society at large. The model being used by the west will have dire consequences and if we as a country continue to do so by being consumerist and exploitative then we are going to blow up this planet by 2050...
Dr. Pachauri illuminated the gathering by providing incredible insights into the teachings of Mahatma Gandhi, the father of our nation. He categorically mentioned a few virtues that can be drawn from the life of Gandhi, his idea of leading a simple life and giving back to what one has taken from the society. The environment that nurtures us cannot be annihilated for our own interests. The role of the society is to pass on the benefits of this nature, to the future generation, increased and not impaired in value. [Hat tip: DA]
Rajendra Pachauri has had other things on his mind, which may help explain why he’s allowed the IPCC under his leadership to become mired in allegations of fraud, exaggeration, deceit and cherry-picking.Flashback: Controversial climate change boss uses car AND driver to travel one mile to office...

You see, Pachauri has been thinking a lot about sex, and has even written a lot about it in his new steamy novel
On Friday, for the one-mile journey from home to his Delhi office, Dr Pachauri could have walked, or cycled, or used the eco-friendly electric car provided for him, known in the UK as G-Wiz.Flashback: 'Pachauri made the globe wake up to climate change'
But instead, he had his personal chauffeur collect him from his £4.5million home – in a 1.8-litre Toyota Corolla.
Hours later, the chauffeur picked up Dr Pachauri from the office of the environmental charity where he is director-general – The Energy and Resources Institute – blatantly ignoring the institute’s own literature, which gives visitors tips on how to reduce pollution by using buses.
Dr Pachauri – who as IPCC chairman once told people to eat less meat to cut greenhouse gas emissions – was driven to an upmarket restaurant popular with expatriates and well-off tourists just half a mile from his luxurious family home.
A colleague of Dr Rajendra Kumar Pachauri in the IPCC remembers travelling with him through Heathrow airport, London. "The airport employees and the airline staff all recognised and wished him as he walked through the busy airport. It was crazy."
Not that the cabin crew or the airport authorities knew much about climate change and IPCC, but it's hard to forget a man who has probably spent more time in the air than he has in Delhi, his base, since he became IPCC chief. Pachauri himself often jokes that he "lives at 30,000 feet".
