Happiness Centre

Rekhi Centre for the Science of Happiness: Happiness is an affective, cognitive, and psychological state of well-being. It is about finding meaning and purpose in life. It is the joy experienced in sharing than receiving. In the workplace, this happiness finds reflection in the work itself, being more productive, and creative, enjoying one’s work, and being there for others.  We have often pursued the art of happiness in our understanding and practice of staying happy. But developing a scientific understanding of happiness will help individuals be more optimistic and appreciative of themselves and others.

There are three broad objectives of the centre:

  • Individual perspective: Happiness as the doorway to insight, awareness, and orientation
  • Societal and Community Perspective: Nudging happiness through design and creativity 
  • Process Orientation: Happiness as a way of life and not a target. It is neither prescriptive nor descriptive

The Centre welcomes one and all willing to join and contribute to this pursuit of happiness, making the world a better place to live and work.

Birsa Munda Centre for Tribal Affairs

Tribals of Jharkhand state have immensely contributed to the Independence of our country led by Bhagwan Birsa Munda, Sido Murmu and Kanhu Murm. Tribals were the deprived section of society and attracted the attention of policymakers, planners, and social scientists. All these factors led to increased tribal studies to accelerate tribal development that recognises the tribal communities and cultures. Against this background, a focused “Birsa Munda Centre for Tribal Affairs” (BMCTA) has been established at IIM Ranchi to develop recommendations and activities for developing tribal communities.
