It is an achievement as ISBR gives emphasis for Skill development. He emphasized three connectivity skills - listening, observing, strategic planning. One should follow a hobby and connect it to a social cause. ISBR encourages entrepreneurship in a big way and anyone keen on it can meet up Mr. Manish for its development.
