Vista 2013 – The man who will start it all

In three days’ time, IIM Bangalore will turn into a land of the insomniacs. While many might argue it always is, lets just say for the sake of argument, it will become all the more apparent now. Vista will be back once again and like every year it will only get bigger and better. This year, not only will be having some great events but we will also have the opportunity to interact with some very brilliant and inspirational personalities. To give you a heads up, here is a brief profile of Mr. D R Mehta who will be the Keynote Speaker for Vista 2013.


Padma Bhushan awardee Mr. D R Mehta is the proud Founder & Chief Patron of Bhagwan Mahaveer Viklang Sahayata Samiti, the largest organization in the world for the handicapped with more than a million beneficiaries. His organization provides them with artificial limbs, calipers and other aids and appliances, and does all of this without eliciting any fee from the patients. In addition to this, no patient is ever turned away and the organization’s mission is to ensure every handicapped person who walks through their doors is given the gift of mobility along with their right to dignity. Mr Mehta has been recognized by the government for his noble social initiative and was also awarded the Rajiv Gandhi National Sadhbhavna Award 2012 by the Hon’ Prime Minister of India.
