Sanjay Bhattacharya, successful painter and Shekhar Kapur, famous director (of Elizabeth fame) were here on campus as a part of the Business & Arts programme.
Sanjay Bhattacharya was the “Artist in Residence” this year and stayed at ISB for 3-4 days and made some lovely paintings. Heard he was very approachable and a very down-to-earth person. Shekhar Kapur came this Sunday and gave a talk to the ISB community. I couldn’t attend the talk but heard that most parts of what he spoke were total bouncers to the audience. Heard he talked about quantum physics, vedanta etc and drifted from topic to topic. We had heard earlier that he is a very good speaker and that had set very high expectations in many people’s minds about his talk. What he chose to speak might not have been appropriate for this forum, resulting in very low levels of satisfaction among many who attended his talk.
