New Delhi: The Indian School of Business (ISB) is all set to start a course on “A Life of Happiness and Fulfilment” that will focus on happiness of employees and the way to enhance it.

“The course content is based on emerging scientific research particularly — from ‘positive psychology’ that deals with scientific understanding and effective intervention to aid in the achievement of a satisfactory life,” ISB said in a statement.

“The Indian School of Business (ISB), with campuses at Mohali and Hyderabad, is all set to make its foray into the Massive Open Online Course world with a course on ‘A Life of Happiness and Fulfilment’, the course which will be offered on Coursera,” the statement said.

The new course will be taught by Raj Raghunathan, visiting professor of marketing at the ISB and professor of marketing at the McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas, Austin.

“The course is a step forward in ISB’s mission to leverage technology and make its vast knowledge resources accessible to a larger audience globally. The school pioneered the concepts of ‘Flipped Classroom’, the ‘Engaged Classroom’ and the Unified Class through telepresence. It is actively working on transforming the delivery of cutting edge management education,” ISB dean Ajit Rangnekar said.

“As Coursera’s first partner in India, ISB is playing a leading role in bringing India’s educational expertise to the world,” Rick Levin, Coursera’s Chief Executive Officer, said.

The course would highlight the most common “happiness sins” that even the smart-and-successful among us commit. It talks about happy employees being more productive than their less happy counterparts and what you can do, starting today, to enhance the quality of your life. (IANS)

The UK government on Thursday announced that it will move India from the red to the amber list on Sunday, in the country's latest update to the 'Red-Amber-Green' traffic light ratings for arrivals into England amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

This means the visit visas for the UK from India are open, in addition to other long-term visas that have remained open. But travellers from India arriving in England can complete a 10-day quarantine at home or in the place they are staying (not mandatorily quarantine in a managed hotel).

Pakistan has failed miserably to protect Hindus, their interests.

A Hindu temple in Pakistan's Punjab province was reportedly vandalized by hundreds of people after a nine-year-old Hindu boy, who allegedly urinated at a local seminary, received bail, a media report said on Thursday.

According to the Dawn news report, the incident took place on Wednesday in Bhong town, about 60 km from Rahim Yar Khan city.

Besides the vandalization, the mob also blocked the Sukkur-Multan Motorway (M-5), the report added.

Citing sources, Dawn news said that a case was registered against the minor on July 24 based on a complaint filed by a cleric, Hafiz Muhammad Ibrahim, of the Darul Uloom Arabia Taleemul Quran.

The sources said that "some Hindu elders did tender an apology to the seminary administration saying the accused was a minor and mentally challenged".

But, when a lower court granted him bail a few days ago, some people incited the public in the town on Wednesday and got all shops there closed in protest, the report quoted the sources as further saying.

A video clip showing people wielding clubs and rods storming the temple and smashing its glass doors, windows, lights, and damaging the ceiling fans went viral on social media.
