Our Founder & Chairman's Envision


Educationists should build the capacities of

the spirit of inquiry, creativity, entrepreneurial

and moral leadership among students and

become their role model.”

- Shri Abdul Kalam,

My Dear Students

I deem it to be a matter of immense pleasure and

honor for me to address you all through the ECHO-

2020 this year is its Silver Jubliee Edition of Regency

College of Hotel Management and Catering

Technology affiliated to Osmania University

established in 1994. It is indeed very heartening to

witness that the college has carved a name and

Celebrating SILVER JUBLIEE for itself in the

academic scenario of this region. Education is the

most powerful tool to bring desirable changes in our

personality and also to bring positive changes in our

society. It is the only medium which enables you to

move from darkness to brightness. I strongly believe

that, there can be no better way to drive and improve

our nation's prosperity and social economic wellbeing

than through its education system.

Dear Students, I also believe that, Hospitality

Management Students are the key to continued

economic advancement of our country especially in

Tourism and Hotel Sectors. As you are aware,

Tourism is a potentially large employment generator

besides being major source of Foreign Exchange for

the Country. This sector in our country has

accounted 8% of the total employment opportunities

generated in the country in 2018, providing

employment to around 45.6 million people during

the same year. The number is expected to rise by 3

percent per annum to 52.3 million jobs by 2028.

International hotel chains are increasing their

presence in the country, as it will account for around

47 per cent share in the Tourism & Hospitality sector

of India by 2020 & 50 per cent by 2022

I travel across the world and I see that a lot of

Alumni of Regency are doing extremely well in

various sectors of Hospitality Industry be it Hotels,

Airlines and Retail Sectors.

I congratulate team Regency on aiming at the

complete development of the student, more over

our Principal and staff are handpicked and trained

to ensure that the students are supported in all their

Endeavors' and Academics. To keep pace with the

new trends and changes the institute equips the

students to face all the challenges lying ahead in

life, mainly for Holistic Educational Development,

which causes the employment outlook excellent for

people from every race and ethnic background.

I Pray the Almighty to Shower his Blessings upon us

Wish you all Good Luck!!!

Thanks & Regards

globalization. For it to succeed, with the most modern

infrastructure it also requires trained personnel who are the

frontline service providers. The degree & diploma courses are

designed in such a way so as to provide the best career

opportunities to the students with the basic qualities of

professionalism, humility and content. The degree / diploma

programs attract versatile talent from all over India selected

through Written &Interview process of admission, and serviced

by experienced and committed faculty who train them as

confidence in our students since so many years.

Since my association with this organization, I have seen it

position today, where others envy us. Our past experience, our

association with the industry and the name we have established

have helped us in facing the world with our heads held high and

pride in our hearts. It gives me immense pleasure to be present as

acquiring skill so that its product becomes strength of growth

and development for the hospitality industry. We in our

Endeavour are trying our best to respond to the demands of the

industry and develop professional manpower for Managerial

Level / Supervisory Level / Entry-level positions. Our student's

want to be” in order to achieve what you determine to be. The

important thing is to recognize your own individuality and to

think long and hard about how you would determine your own

Regency College celebrating 25 years? What do you say?

I would like to congratulate Regency College on completing 25

years. The longevity of your college and completing 25 years is

proof of the excellent work done by the institute and its founders

in the field of hospitality education. I would like to congratulate

all of you and wish the management, faculty and students the

very best for the years ahead as well.

How did you know about Regency?

I have been associated with Regency College since 2010 when I

was working in Hyderabad and I had visited the college for

campus recruitment.,

Why did you choose this particular career path or what led to your

chosen profession into H.R?

I have always been passionate about people and people

management. Being in HR, I get a chance to develop and shape

the career of young people. Nurturing talent, mentoring them and

developing their career gives me immense satisfaction and

that’s the reason which encouraged me to join HR.

What is the difference between hard work and smart work? In

your view as a H.R Manager as you are involved in performance

appraisal of all the hotel employees?

These days, its all about smart work and managing your time,

resources and people efficiently. Smart work is about utilizing

your available resources to the optimum and achieving more out

of less.

What is the most difficult thing that you’ve ever accomplished?

I do not look at anything as difficult. I take pride in all

achievments, small or big. I believe that if you follow the right

processes, the results will take care of itself. Its about doing the

small things correctly on a daily and consistent basis which

leads to big results.

How quickly do you adapt to new technology?

To survive in today’s ever changing world, one needs to

constantly reinvent and adapt themselves to the latest

technology and trends in the market. We have to constantly learn

new techniques and unlearn old methods. We have to open our

minds to new ideas and new ways of thinking. We cannot have a

rigid mentality and we should have an open mind to learn and

evolve. I would advise youngsters to devote at least an hour

every day to read on a new subject, learn some new courses,

constantly keep yourself engaged. We are living in the

information era and it’s about learning, understanding and

processing the information available to achieve the best output.

If we do not learn and evolve, we will become redundant in

today’s competitive world.

What motivates you?

The passion which I have for my job and the desire to develop the

careers and aspirations of the youngsters around me motivates

me to give my best every day. India’s future lies in its human

capital which is the youth. I want to play my role in nation

building by providing a platform to youngsters so that they can

develop their careers and life.

Describe your hiring strategy.

The junior level hiring is more about hiring for attitude and then

training for skills. What we look for is a positive attitude,

excellent communication skills and we look for signs of flexibility


Human Resource Manager

Double Tree Suites

By Hilton Bangalore

and eagerness to learn. If the attitude is right, other areas will

take care of itself. At a senior level, we also look for stability and

past achievements.

What do you believe is the role of the HR department in relation

to the mission, vision, and strategies of the business?

The Human Resources department has to play a strategic role

in helping the organization to achieve its mission, vision etc.

The fundamental pillar of any organization is its people

resources and we believe that if our people are happy and

motivated, they will take care of the guest. The HR department

has to play a proactive role in developing learning and

development strategies for the team members. At Hilton, we

look at providing and shaping people with a great career and not

just jobs. We are constantly looking at and engaging with our

team members to provide a great platform for them to learn and

we provide them with a great work life balance which enables

them to perform more efficiently.

Why do you enjoy working closely with people?

The immense satisfaction which I get from helping and

developing aspirations of the youngsters to achieve their

dreams is what I enjoy most. The enthusiasm and energy of the

youth of India radiates positive energy in me as well.

What is the key to success when communicating with your staff?

The key to communicating with your team members is to always

have a honest and transparent discussion. When

communicating with team members, its important that we listen

more and take their valuable feedback into consideration. When

team members understand that their opinions are valued, they

will be much more honest in their communication and feedback.

What are challenges encountered in employee retention?

There are so many opportunities available to the youngsters

today as there are so many hotels opening all the time and they

are all looking for people. Hence the range of options available

to them may at times lead to constant attrition.

As HR, it’s our job to educate the youngsters about stability in

job and the need to strengthen their resumes with proper job

tenure. We at Hilton provide our team members with a fantastic

exposure in terms of great on the job learning, various online

courses in Hilton university, exposure to other hotels for cross

training and we also provide them with great opportunities for

career growth. The youngsters of today are looking for constant

learning and career growth and we at Hilton take these

aspirations are taken into count and hence we are able to retain

team members in their jobs.

ECHO 2020 23


May we know your career progression?

I started my career as a Housekeeping supervisor at

Hyderabad International convention Centre and then

promoted Assistant manager Housekeeping and later

promoted as Assistant executive housekeeper at Novotel

Hyderabad Convention Center and then Executive

housekeeper. I have 15yearsof experience in

Housekeeping and at present am Working as Executive


What is your inspiration to take Housekeeping as your


Housekeeping is an important department which is

responsible to maintain the cleanliness and hygiene of

whole building now a day's housekeeping is much more

than keeping a place clean. When a guest enters into a

clean hotel the first impression of the guests gets

created. Housekeeping is a department with many

umbrellas under it like Rooms, pest control, horticulture,

laundry and public areas. Housekeeping now is not just

about cleaning a washroom or cleaning a public area it is

more than that.

What in your view is most important quality our young

budding housekeepers should process?

I think most of the students are choosing housekeeping

as their career as there are many opportunities, backend

when I started my career there were very less

opportunities as we used to work only in hotels, now if

you look at it if you choose housekeeping you have

opportunities in air travel industry, facility management,

Tourism and hospitality. Also you don't have to work only

in housekeeping in hotel there are many other options

which are opening up and with this you are learning

different trends. Also I know many housekeepers who

have become General Managers and are working at

Region level as operations head.

With all of the competition in the market, how do you stay

on top of industry trends?

You have to keep learning, keep looking for change, new

ideas. what is the change, there are many changes if you

look at it, you have to be up to the mark with market with

new growing trends and then it's not like only I am there to

take the decision sometimes associates can also come

up with good and different ideas that might rock so it's

not that I am the only one who knows everything, I might

learn from someone else so it is always constant



Executive House Keeper

Lemeridien Huderabad

What trends are being followed for safety and security of

the guest?

Maintaining hygiene during process of room cleaning is

very important hence it is important that associates are

always trained in best cleaning practices and usage of

better and hygienic tools are provided to them one of the

example is usage of color coded dusters to clean different

areas in guest rooms. Usage of chemicals while cleaning

of surfaces and bath rooms.

Sustainable practices are trend now a days, does guest

support to the practices?

Guests these days are frequent travellers and are well

versed with the sustainability programmes carried at

hotels and supports the green practices so one of the

practices is linen wash program which is to make a green

choice that is reuse of bed & bath linen. This is there in

most of the hotels now and most of the guests

appreciates it and they also follow. apart from this there

are many other initiatives like Plastic free minimart (Items

in minibar can be with no plastic packing)

What is the biggest challenge of a corporate


Hospitality is one of the largest and fastest-growing

industries there is no such challenge in any role it's just

that one has to keep a close watch on changing trends and

habits of travelers, customer expectations and to succeed

as an Executive Housekeeper, one needs patience—and

lots of it..


ECHO 2020


How important is the Employee Satisfaction for you?

I would say it is actually the most important aspect than the

Guest Satisfaction. As long as any Organization which takes

good care of their employees they turn out to be a successful


Can you share us your Experience handling a fussy Guest?

Well, there are no such guest who exists, it is all our mind set

and the way we look into their needs, basically we just need to

understand their needs and fulfill their requirement and

sometimes it can go wrong. We are meant to serve them

hence if you think of any fussy requests try to give an option

available rather than contradicting them with NO.

Prioritize the Hotel Occupancy or The Guest Satisfaction?

Both are equallly important for us to make money to run the

business, it is also utmost important to maintain the legacy of

the hotel/organization and to sustain in this competitive


As long as you take good care of the guests they will turn out

to be your regular guests and regular guests = regular


Human or Robot's which one better suit Front Office?

Of course Humans, but very unfortunate we being robotic in

handling our guests in a process of completing formalities as

early as possible just to avoid unnecessary delays or

complaints from the guests.

Though world is evolving towards digitalization and indeed

many robotic options available in the market can give much

better + consistent results and importantly cost effective, still

hotels prefers to hire the staff, because we can't implant

feelings and teach basic common sense to robots.

What Surveys do you conduct to know about Guest


As Accor being one of the leading hospitality management

company uses Trust YOU as Guest Service Satisfaction

platform and all the reviews from various channels like

google, Trip Advisor, Booking.Com, Expedia.Com, Ctrip.com

etc flow through in and hotel has no control towards the

review contribution and when it comes to Trust YOU, basically

we have a questions pertaining to Check In, Check Out

Experience, Room, Breakfast, Hotel F & B Outlets, Employees,

Recreational Facilities, Loyalty etc. are the points covered in

the survey.

What strategies are followed to enhance Guest satisfaction

at your Hotel?

Simple, being available for every guest and their needs,

unfortunately we all falling into a trap of creating action

plans, strategies and focusing on something which guests

doesn't even aware of.

Guests don't work in the hotel and they don't care what you


Front Officer Manager

do, all they just need is a basic smile on the face of every

employee greeting them with respect and assisting them

with their preferences it’s all about personalizing the


How often is a Guest Satisfaction survey been conducted at

your property?

Daily, it is actually sent to every guest who gives their email

id during check in and link will automatically reach their

email as soon as they checkout from the hotel.

Could you tell what made you join hospitality industry?

I was just an average student in my academics until my

intermediate and I really wanted to choose some course

which is very easy to complete and satisfy my parents with a

degree that's how I got into Hotel Management and after

joining it is something I really wanted to be in, especially

after completing my industrial training I just wanted to see

myself as Front Office Manager, I am fortunate enough I

could achieve it by 27 years.

How do you balance Work and personal Life?

Well I don't think I have one. At the beginning of the career it

is very easy to complete your daily tasks and leave the shift

on time, however the more you grow in your career, your

responsibilities do grow, hence I train, coach, monitor and

delegate in order for me to complete my work at the same

time keeping a watch on all activities in my assigned areas

(Front Office, Housekeeping, Spa & Recreation, Health Club,

Valet) etc.

Impact of Hotels on Environment:

Features of Green Hotels to Overcome

Environmental Pollution

An overview of the “green” concept

Tourism and hotel business are quite

interrelated and an age-old phenomena,

but concept of “Green Hotel” is fairly new

one. The concept of “green” has become

a “catch word” on all walks of human life

and endeavors. It is applied to business,

banking, construction of buildings,

e d u c a t i o n , o ffi c e m a i n t e n a n c e ,

agriculture, trade and commerce, all the

like. But what it means in the true sense is

preserving the nature in its original state

as far as possible. In the 21st Century, it is

felt more than ever that we have to

recycle the limited resources that we

have, minimize our aggressive behavior

toward nature, and thus save the

environment from pollution.

Characteristics of green hotels

Green hotels are belonging to some

properties which are built-in to be 'green'.

According to Bohdanowicz (2005) green

practices are identified through energy

efficiency, water conservation and waste

management. Different studies have

explored various characteristics of green

hotels separated them from ordinary

ones. Identified characteristics are

assessed as follows:

Energy efficiency

Hotels generally use more energy per

visitor than local residents, as they have

energy intense facilities, such as bars,

restaurants, and pools, and have more

spacious rooms (Gosling et. al. 2005:6).

In tourism, accommodations for tourists

require large and expensive energy,

especially for heating and cooling


1. Water conservation

In accommodation industry, use of water

is abundant, costly, and puts a significant

stress on the local environment,

particularly on the water supplies of the

local people. Tourists demand more

water than local residents on a per capita

basis (Essex, Kent & Newnham, 2004).

Green hotels use improved technologies

to conserve water by installing proper

systems in places like bath-showers,

automatic flushing of toilets, washing


HOD, Accommodation


machines, and air-conditioning/cooling

units. In sum, a hotel practicing 'green'

identify the reasons of excessive use of

water and takes the necessary initiatives

to minimize water consumption.

2. Solid waste

Paper, food, various metals, plastics,

aluminum, glass etc. are generally

treated as solid waste in a hotel. By

implementing solid waste reduction

programs, hotels can create more

environmental-friendly image. The

programs can save cost in waste

disposal fees. As Green hotelier (2004)

suggests that the hotel industry can

reduce the amount of waste produced by

implementing and following a waste

management system that is modeled

around the concepts of reduce, reuse

and recycle.

3. Pest management

Implementation of a green integratedpest

management (IPM) program is one

of the practices of green hotels. IPM

allows less dependence on chemical

treatments against pest. Hotels use

organic insecticides and biocides (IPM

techniques) that lead them in greening.

Weeds are picked by hand rather than

u s i n g w e e d k i l l e r s i n a g r e e n

accommodation. In eco-friendly hotels,

ants and roaches are killed by using

traps, containerized temptation and gels

instead of using chemicals.

4. Customer and employee Education/


Tourists are often unaware of the impacts

of their holiday-activities on environment.

By providing information, green hotels

help them understand how they can

modify their behavior while spending time

in a hotel. Information is disseminated on

the website, public areas of the hotel, and

in guest rooms. Such education/trainings

are also imparted to staff to enhance

green practices. Without being aware of

the green issues and real motivation on

the part of the employees, it will not be

possible to attain benefits of green


5. Achieving green certification

Many hotels around the world have

started operation to be environmentfriendly

by implementing green tourism.

However, fraudulent practice under the

name of green-wash is also observed. In

such situations, travelers need to

identify actual 'green accommodation'. A

variety of certifications are attained by

an actual green hotel, which exhibits

the specific green practices. Through

t r u s t w o r t h y g r e e n c e r t i fi c a t i o n

programs, hoteliers promote their green

activities. To demonstrate a hotel's

c o m m i t m e n t t o p r o t e c t i n g t h e

environment, it looks for assistance in

promoting their environmental plan

through green certification programs.

Authorized organizations offer publicity

and provide support and guidance in

developing and maintaining the initiatives

by green hotels. So, among available

certifications for green practices, hotels

need to try to achieve a trustworthy green

certificate that should work as a tool for

publicity and promote their business.


To m i n i m i ze t h e e n v i ronmental

degradation, green hotels can contribute

significantly with other environmentconcerned

organizations since it can

protect the environment and conserve

the resources. It seems from the

available literature and its discussion

that the idea is internationally in the

initial stage, although some hotels have

started green practices, and some are

planning to be green in the near future.

Culinary Diplomacy

Promoting your country's food is becoming

a trendy tactic for nations looking to raise

their profile (and tourist revenue). It's

d e l i c i o u s d i p l o m a c y — o r e d i b l e

propaganda, some food trends involving

cultural cuisines aren't trends at all: they're

carefully-planned branding efforts by

governments looking to raise their profile

on the world stage. Food can even help

divert attention from a country's “troubled

past,” like Peru's epidemic of terrorism

during the 1980s and 1990s. The push

toward “gastro-prestige” is so common,

that it's spurred a conference calling the

kitchen “the new venue of foreign policy.”

What is Culinary Diplomacy?

Culinary diplomacy is the use of food as a

tool that fosters cultural under-standing

among countries. Here on AU's campus, we

have a class on culinary diplomacy, called

"gastro diplomacy". In the class, students

get to learn about the relationship between

food and culture by listening to different

Diaspora communities that have visited DC

during times of conflict. By listening to

these stories over a meal together,

students get to slowly see what culinary

diplomacy is. It is a type of cultural

diplomacy, which itself is a subset of public

diplomacy. Its basic premise is that "the

easiest way to win hearts and minds is

through the stomach". Official governmentsponsored

culinary diplomacy programs

have been established in Thailand, South

Korea, Malaysia, Peru, and the United


The terms "culinary diplomacy" and "gastro

diplomacy" have been in use since the early

2000s, and have been popularized by the

work of public diplomacy scholars Paul

Rockower and Sam Chapple-Sokol. An

early mention of the concept was in a 2002

Economist article about the Thai Kitchen of

the World program. In a 2011 article

published in the Taiwanese journal Issues

& Studies, Rockower wrote that "Gastro

diplomacy is predicated on the notion that

the easiest way to win hearts and minds is

through the stomach. Chapple-Sokol wrote

in a 2013 article in the journal The Hague

Journal of Diplomacy that culinary

diplomacy is "the use of food and cuisine as

an instrument to create cross-cultural

understanding in the hopes of improving

interactions and cooperation.

Food is an ambassador in and of itself.

Historically, food has been used for peacebuilding

even though it has only recently

become popular in public diplomacy. The

Romans would use food as a way to create

peace with their enemies - by sharing a

meal together, people become more open

to each other and this starts the creation of

a diplomatic bond. This is because food is a

tangible way to access culture.

How We Can Take Part in Culinary


We can all be culinary diplomats. The best

way that you can take part in culinary

diplomacy is simple: eat meals with people.

Meet new people by saying hello to the

owners of a restaurant. Order the most

authentic meal on the menu and ask the

chef how they learned the recipe. These

conversations bring us as a global society

together and forge lasting peace between


Culinary diplomacy is as simple as just

trying a new restaurant or a new dish.

Anthony Bourdon is a great example if you

are nervous. He was the best culinary

diplomat of our era. Through watching his

shows or reading his blogs, you can see

how simple culinary diplomacy is. Become

hungry, open your mind, and ask someone

about their background. You will find that

food truly is the best way to make a new

friend and to welcome diversity into your

"Creativity doesn't wait for that

perfect moment. ...

“Creativity is the ability to connect all

unknown connections, which no one

did in the past”.

Creativity is a phenomenon whereby

something new and valuable is formed.

Creativity is a spark of an idea that a

business leader needs to achieve their

goals. Creative thinking involves

thinking of different ways to do things

to achieve a better result. ... According

to research, business leaders who

could think about new ideas and stick

to it are most likely going to be

successful. And no innovation is

possible without some amount of

creativity. The creative state is a

profound pathway towards connecting

with our spirit and receiving spiritual


Creative thinking inspires ideas. Ideas

inspire changes. Creativity is the art of

connecting with experiences you have

had in order to synthesize new things.

How to check?

Do you like change: Creative people

always ready to face any change in

their life without any resistance and

welcome it with positive attitude.

Creativity is the input to innovation and

change is output from innovation.

Do you ask questions: It's been said

that at the age of 5, children ask 120

questions a day, at age 6 they ask only

60 questions a day, and at the age of 40,

adults ask 4 questions or less in a day.

We adults need to embrace “beginner's

mind,” and ask questions, instead of

trying to find immediate answers.

Curiosity and eagerness to know are

the seed for creativity.

Do you like to do one thing at a time:

Multitasking never leads to creativity.

Being totally involved from your heart

will help to reveal something new from

your nature.

Do you believe history repeats itself:

Those who believe it will never be able

to create the new one because past

gives experience but spontaneity is

needed for creativity. Every being and

moment is new and fresh, it needs fresh

and innocent eyes to get new shapes.

Do you have gut feeling: An instinct or

intuition; an immediate or basic feeling

or reaction without a logical rationale.

Be silent to listen it.

Do you like to solve puzzles or brain

twisters: Yes creative people like to

solve puzzles and brain twisters as part

of play and it's really good for your brain

and neural growth for new connections

to grow. The most important check is,

whether your efforts are making your

environment pleasant, comfortable

and loveable i.e. creative or making it

insecure, dull and dangerous i.e.

destructive. As creativity is always

beautiful and loved. In addition to

above lot of online tests are available to

check your creativity level.

How to boost?

Use your 5 senses to inspire: Use all 5

senses to watch things from around

you. Start observing around with

senses individually and then shift

towards totality. Be more alert and

aware i.e. be a good observer while

listening, watching, smelling, touching

and tasting.

Be clear and concise: Abstraction is the

ability to abstract concepts from ideas.

Connect the disconnected: It is the

ability to make connections between

things that don't initially have an

apparent connection. Creative thinking

helps in it which is not over thinking.

Unplug (Do nothing): Alan Cohen once

wrote, "There is virtue in work and there

is virtue in rest. Use both and overlook

neither." Sometimes you're best ideas

will come only when you're not

wracking your brain or trying too hard.

Be hungry to unveil: Ignite fire of

curiosity and eagerness to change or

improve things that will be accepted as

the norm. Be Bold or sometime rebel:

The confidence to push boundaries



beyond accepted conventions. Also

the ability to eliminate fear of what

others think of you. Change is always

being resisted and rebellious with

awareness do it for creativity.

Paradox: The ability to simultaneously

accept and work with statements that

are contradictory. Wide vision is

needed, which can see contradictory

and complementary.

Complexity to simplicity: The ability to

carry large quantities of information

and be able to manipulate and manage

the relationships between such


Persistence: It is the ability to force

oneself to keep trying to derive more

and stronger solutions even when

g o o d o n e s h a v e a l r e a d y b e e n


Challenge yourself: Challenges act

as a catalyst for us to think creatively

and come up with simultaneous

ideas or solutions. Love, compassion

a n d s e l f - a w a r e n e s s a r e b a s i c

foundation for the creativity otherwise

hate, lust and unawareness can

destruction. A creative person lives life

joyously as he/she never gets bored

and enjoys all moments of life.

Future..... Food in Pills

When really Hungry are you Ready to

take food in pills....

Here's the thing: The phrasing of the

question "How close are we to a meal

pill?" makes it sound like meal pills are

something we're all itching to get our

hands on. Who wants braised pork

belly or Nona's lasagna when you can

swallow a nutrition pill?

Uh, I'll take the food, please. Because

while it might be less convenient to

stuff our faces with the right amounts

of iron and folic acid every day forever,

many of us would happily trade

efficiency for the strings of mozzarella

that drip off a pizza slice. Of course, we

can't forget that nutrition -- and food -- is

not always plentiful. Meal pills might be

an easy, cheap solution to international

food shortage or hunger.

So we enter the world of the meal pill:

Some want it for ease, some want it to

eradicate global conflicts. And in a

way, we're actually already at a mealin-a-pill

form, so long as you're willing

to be a little flexible on the "pill" part.

Soy lent is the brand name of a drink

that contains lipids, carbs, proteins,

essential vitamins and minerals.

While the taste and texture is reported

as a thick, creamy, batter-type fluid, it

does supply the necessary "meal" a

body needs [source: Widdicombe].

But that's not the pill we all imagine in

our 22nd century fever dreams -- the

one that might even let us "taste" an

appetizer, entrée and dessert with one

swallow. How close are we? Let's put it

this way: we're as close to meal pills as

we are to changing the laws of the

universe -- which we might have to do

to get the darn things to work.

The bottom line is that getting 2,000

calories' worth of energy and nutrition

from pills is going to involve a lot of

pills. Lard, for instance, is a great way

to get calories in as dense a method as

possible ... and you'd still need half a

pound of it to get close to your daily

requirement [source: Friedman]. And

then you're not getting the rest of your

nutritional needs met, so you'd have to

add in room for that, too.

Essentially, it's going to be hard to

pack enough of anything into one pill

to make a meal. We might have to

settle for something like Soy lent, or

high-nutrition peanut butter paste

(often part of global aid to famine

areas) to pack in the calories without a

knife or fork [source: Dobbs].

The Progressive Promise of the Food


Alongside robots and jet packs, food

pills complete the holy trinity of

futuristic kitsch. They run the fantasyadventure

gamut, from the classic scifi

of Isaac Asimov and Ray Bradbury to

the space-race camp of TV's Lost in

Space and The Jetsons (whose

breakfast pills include burnt toast).

Even the technophobic fantasies of

J.R.R. Tolkien include food pills, in the

form of lembas, an elvish sort of super

trail mix. The apotheosis of processed

food, the meal in a pill seems an idea

native to the twentieth century, but its

origins lie in the Victorian era. One of

the first to speculate in earnest about

food pills was the feminist, lawyer, and

populist firebrand Mary Elizabeth

Lease, who, as part of the hype

building up to the Chicago World's fair

of 1893, was asked by the Associated

Press to forecast the world of 1993.

Lease predicted a future where the

minimization of household chores

would raise the status of women. She

imagined future diners consuming

one of the latest is the Food Pill Diet.

Science fiction has predicted food

being compressed into pill form for

over 100 years and the team behind

Food Pill Diet is well on its way to

achieving it. The science behind this

patent-pending diet methodo-logy is

that if you do not taste your food then

you can trick your body into not feeling

hungry. They claim that this allows

you to be on a low-calorie diet with

much less difficulty than if you are

constantly battling cravings.

Founder, Dan McGuire, serial inventor

and entrepreneur, came up with the

idea whilst on the Singularity

University Global Solution Program

(sponsored by Google) where he lived

on the NASA Ames Research base in

Mountain View along with 90 of the

smartest PhDs, engineers, scientists

and entrepreneurs to work on

solutions to solve climate change. It

was here that he hit on an idea which

to his mind helps solve the obesity

epidemic, rising healthcare costs, and

climate change.

While in the program, McGuire

researched the personal experience of

hunger. He noticed that the loss of a

sense of taste was repeatedly linked

to weight loss. For example, when

people get older and start to lose the

sense of taste, they consistently start

to lose weight; or if someone takes

medicine that has a side effect of

them losing their sense of taste, they

also consistently lose weight.

Could you give up tasting food to lose

weight, improve your health? Could

this be an answer to short term

situations where fresh food is

unavailable such as in natural disaster

or food shortages?

Library and its importance

Have you spoken to students about what

books they enjoy reading? Does your

library or classroom collection include a

mix of fiction and nonfiction titles?

What opportunities do you provide for

students to read for enjoyment, rather

than a task? When reading for enjoyment,

do you allow students to select their own


It is known that reading for enjoyment is

associated with higher academic

achievement. Of course, it's also great fun

transporting yourself to a fantasy world,

settling down with familiar characters for

the latest installment in a series, or

dipping into a nonfiction book to quench

your curiosity.

Whether it's beginning readers, juniors or

older teens, having a good mix of fiction

and nonfiction books on offer will ensure

there's plenty for students to choose from.

Student choice of what to read, rather than

yours, is important – in a recent Australian

study (Scholastic, 2016) nine out of 10

children said their favorite books were the

ones they picked out themselves, and the

same proportion said they were more

likely to finish a book they'd picked out


So, what to select when adding to your

library or creating a classroom collection?

One simple way is to ask students what

they're interested in and what they'd like to

see. You could make a suggestion box

available for requests. There's also

inspiration from outside school in the

shape of annual lists of most popular


What makes an effective library?

Library is a central hub supporting every

student and staff member, as well as

parents and whānau. The library

combines several elements — library staff,

resources, and space. Each of these plays

an important part in supporting teaching

and learning. School libraries are most

effective when these elements combine to

form an integrated whole.

An effective school library:

Improves student outcomes — collections

developed for your unique school

community enrich reading and learning

programmes· Welcomes people in — the

library is a safe place, that values and

includes students from different cultures

and backgrounds· Brings people and

information together — connections with

other libraries and information sources

enhance your library's collections, and

help your library staff help users find what

they need· Embodies the principles of

'learner agency' — students having the

independence to choose their own

reading, and to find resources that help

them develop their interests and strengths

at their own pace· Helps close the

education gap — for students who might

otherwise be disadvantaged, the library

can provide access to the stories,

information, and technology they need.

School libraries are fundamental to

developing engaged readers who have the

capability and inclination to read and learn

beyond their years at school. School

libraries help students learn to find and

use the information they need, to succeed

now and in their future life and work.

Rise of Seacuterie Food

Seacuterie brings a seafood twist to the

classic charcuterie board

l Takes skill and knowledge to prepare –

and requires storage and fridge space

l Choose the finest, freshest fish to set

your seacuterie apart

l Timing is important. You need to hit the

sweet spot between firm and soft

Seacuterie is the latest food trend to

catch the imagination of Irish foodies. It

uses the same techniques as everpopular

charcuterie boards – only this

time the ingredients come straight from

the sea.

It's a trend that's turning chefs' heads as

well as customers. The reason? Because

it's relatively low-cost and convenient to

prepare. And the only limit to what's

possible is your own imagination.

To make it work, you'll need to have enough

storage space – and refrigeration space.

You'll also need the right equipment to

vacuum pack the fish as well as enough

time to properly cure your dishes.

The curing process preserves the fish,

ensures it's safe to eat and really

compresses the flavors' down. If you

want cured fish to taste just like heaven, it

does take time.

Test the fish regularly for firmness,

because you don't want it to become too

soft. Take it out early and it'll be too firm.

Miss your moment, and you'll have fish

that's too soft to serve.

Seacuterie is riding an incredible wave

with chefs and diners. For chefs, the

appeal lies in the fact they can have fun

and be playful with it. But it also does

good business, with customers willing to

pay a premium for seafood innovation.

Social, shareable food is going nowhere.

And seacuterie is the latest, cool and

have fun with it, charge the premium

that customers are prepared to pay –

technological trends and will influence

the future of the restaurant industry.

Tabletop Ordering System

Tabletop ordering systems provide

diners with the ease of scrolling through

the entire menu digitally and give

orders. There is no need for servers to

physically take orders from each table.

Orders placed through digital menus are

directly transferred to the kitchens.

Some systems are also integrated with

entertainment features to engage

customers while their order is being

prepared and delivered at the tables.

These systems decrease the table

turnaround time, serve more guests and

ensure better service delivery.

Chat bots

Interactive Chabot assistants could

become popular in 2020. Large

restaurant chains like Burger King and

Taco Bell have already introduced chat

bots which are turning out to be an

effective tool for engaging the

customers. They are programmed to

carry out tasks like answering FAQs,

processing orders, sending targeted

promotional messages and directing

customers to website or payment


Chabot technology is well integrated

with social media platforms such as

Face book, Whatsapp, inbuilt mobile

app and website. Overall, chat bots will

continue to evolve as a wonderful

marketing tool that would deliver more

value and enriching experience to


Self-ordering Kiosks

Kiosks cut down the long waiting time in

queues even during peak hours and

direct more customer traffic. This

results in an increase in sales.

These systems also provide real-time

insights about customer preferences.

All the data is well synced with the POS

terminals. Restaurateurs can easily

determine what is working well and

further, brings improvements in overall


Restaurant Owned Mobile App

According to the 2019 National

targeted customer offers, hassle-free

order management and improved

return visits.

Marketing Automation

Over the years, restaurant marketing

has become more analytical and datad

r i ven. W i t h b e t t e r restaurant

management software, targeting

potential customers will not only be

intuitive but also supported with data.

Restaurant CRM software that

consolidates customer data from all

platforms can provide invaluable

insights that can be utilized to develop

customer-centric loyalty programs.

The restaurants will also be able to

attract more customers through

targeted marketing campaigns using

email, SMS, website, and social media


Robotic Chefs

While robots in the kitchens could

someday automate the entire meal

preparation process, they are currently

not being employed to replace human

chefs. Instead, robotic systems in

restaurant kitchens will fasten order

management and enhance the overall

performance of the restaurant. With an

effective combination of human skills

and automation, restaurants can

effectively optimize order delivery time

and speed up the entire chain of events

f rom o rder p l a c e m e n t t o f o o d

production to service delivery.

Automation in the kitchen would

provide an impeccable customer as

well as employee experience and a

competitive edge to pace well with

growing customer demands.

With automation setting in, the food

industry will certainly become more

efficient. From accessing the entire

status of your restaurant operations in

a single click to employing robots in its

kitchen, technology solutions have the

potential to change the entire

restaurant business for the better. The

Who Do We Trust with Guest's Valuables?

The guests that rent rooms in our hotels

have an expectation that the proprietor

has done some form of due diligence in

screening the employees who have

access to their valued possessions left in

a hotel room. It really does not matter to

them that you may provide an in room

safe, install expensive door hardware and

have appropriate window stops if you

have not taken the time to investigate the

employees that you grant access to their

p e r s o n a l a n d o f t e n t r e a s u r e d


The hospitality industry is sometimes

fragile and susceptible to large revenue

losses as a result of a single negative

event such as theft of valuables of a

guest who just happens to be with a large

convention group. Word travels quickly

with these groups and meeting planners

can be quite adept at researching these

issues when deciding on a hotel for their


Conducting Background Checks

The cost of conducting these investigations

can be expensive especially in

those labor markets where high turnover

and a lack of qualified candidates create

a challenge for the hotel proprietor. Many

companies advertise primarily on the

Internet that they can conduct a

background check for as little as $12.95.

Serious research should be conducted to

determine what information you are

requiring and the validity of that

information. A background check that

utilizes just database information is not a

true and accurate investigation. The only

true method for an accurate criminal

check is actual court checks in the

jurisdictions in and around where the

perspective employee has resided.

The hotel that does not do background

checks on employees is assuming a

rather hefty risk if an employee commits a

homicide when they are caught stealing

by a hotel guest especially if they had a

history that was available if a simple

check was made. The defense that it was

not foreseeable or that the employee

acted outside of the scope of their

employment may not carry enough

weight to sway a jury from a large verdict.

Guidelines for Pre-employment Background


A security expert hired by a plaintiff's

lawyer will most likely use this and other

published materials to attempt to prove

that had you conducted a simple check,

you would have found derogatory

information on an offending employee's

past. There are other organizations that

publish resources and guidelines

including the National Fire Protection

Association's NFPA 730 Guide for

Premises Liability which includes a

section on pre-employment screening

and on lodging facilities.

Interior Room Theft by Employees

A housekeeper who takes a couple

prescription pills for pain out of bottles is

not typically caught or found missing by a

guest until much later yet the implications

can be serious if it is occurring regularly.

Those guests may never report the loss

even if they did realize it had occurred.

The thefts of items that are illegal to

possess are often targets of a dishonest

employee also. Drugs or other personal

items of value that are not legal or are

socially embarrassing to report stolen will

never be on a police report unless the

guest is so irate they want to prove a

point. There is also a danger that a guest

will confront an employee who they

believe has taken their marijuana or other


A dishonest maintenance employee can

easily defeat a sliding glass patio door or

window or alter the latching hardware or

window stops and enter a room without

the electronic door registering they were

even in the room. Many hotels rely on the

e l e c t r o n i c k e y s y s t e m s a n d t h e

interrogation devices as foolproof which

they are not. They only register those

cards that will access the lock and not

anyone who exits the room. The reality is

that more likely than not this dishonest

employee has a history of theft and quite

possibly has a criminal history or an

employment history that may be

important to know before they are hired.

The legal and professional obligation to

investigate employees prior to hiring

increases almost daily as criminal

prosecutions and civil claims against




hotels occur at an ever increasing level.

Establishing strong procedures for

employees while inside guest rooms will

also go a long way in identifying when an

employee is inside of a room for extended

periods or is not following open door or

maid cart positioning requirements.

Know Your Employees

Any professional manager or supervisor

knows that it is important to know who is

working for you. Paying attention to those

employees who are in financial distress

or who have relatives or friends

constantly in trouble with police can be

helpful in the intervention of an employee

becoming a thief or as an accessory to a

larceny. Positive people skills should

include keen observations of employee's

habits to include if they bypass

procedures that might help a theft of

guest valuables occur. Logging and

monitoring guest complaints and

identifying the personnel assigned to a

room when a lost item is reported can

quickly identify that the same employee

name keeps popping up on the log and

further investigation is warranted.

Monitoring of housekeeper carts, linen

rooms, storage closets and maintenance

shops should be done regularly to look for

guest property that is commonly stored

by a thief for a period of time in case the

theft is discovered.

Lost and Found

Managing lost and found is truly a

nightmare for most managers especially

in larger hotel facilities. Items left in

rooms, pools, spas, restaurants, meeting

rooms and lobbies are all typically of

some value to the person who left them.

Dealing with this issue is challenging and

every property has a distinct procedure

for handling guest inquiries and returning

of items to guests. The danger involving

employees is that many believe that if the

item was left, it is fair game. Increases in

guests reporting lost items are an

indicator of possible theft by an

employee and should always be

investigated. Lost and Found theft by

employees can be extensive and far

reaching. In one Las Vegas case, the

surveillance department received

information that one or more of managers

in the Security Department were taking

cash and other lost and found items. The

surveillance department installed a hidden

camera into the Lost and Found room (a

permanent camera should have been in

place already and is highly recommended!)

and monitored the activity within the room.

Unfortunately for the property, the

information turned out to be correct.

Surveillance watched aghast as senior

security personnel pocketed cash that was

to be turned into the Cage for safekeeping

and forged "return to owner" receipts.

Surveillance also observed security

personnel picking through the lost and

found items and taking whatever they

wanted; clothing, hats, electronics, phones,

etc. One manager even stole someone's

walking cane! This one incident resulted in

the termination of the security managers

involved and permanently damaged the

reputation of the security director and the


In conclusion, it should be apparent that

taking the time to perform the due

diligence necessary to know who your

employees are is extremely important in

today's world. Increasingly, and with

good reason, businesses are being held

accountable for what occurs on their

premises, and especially so when their

own employees are involved.

All hotels must operate from the premise

that crimes and other serious issues will

occur on their property. The time to

prepare for that incident is before it

happens. Knowing who your employees

really are is paramount to the protection

of your property. As I believe former

A branch of computer science which deals

with the simulation of intelligent behavior in



With machine learning and language

recognition, it is no surprise that 85% of

telephonic customer service jobs will be

performed by computers and will not need

human interaction.

At the rate at which AI is being adopted in

various areas of our world, it is predicted

that it will replace 16% of our jobs over the

next decade.

Often misconceived as a replacement for

human power, the concept of AI as a

technological aid is much larger, wider and

pervasive. It has created greater trust,

however, for the hospitality industry,

showing the promise of transforming its

processes, services and facilities through

AI-powered robotics. Today, the hotel

system with the adoption of many

innovative methods used for providing

satisfying customer service.

The idea of erecting intelligent hotels

Having an intelligent hotel that surpasses

customer expectations is the strategy many

modern hospitality leaders and service

partners conjure. What adds viability to this

concept is the thought of making it all

enhanced with AI-powered care, support

and service. There are certain essential

elements that make hotels intelligent. Some

of which are:

l Concierge robots

l Digital assistance

l Voice-activated services

l Travel experience enhancers

l Automatic data processing (machine


AI robots not only diminish the human

involvement with its voice-activated

assistants but also smarten the way hotel

guest service is delivered to customer's

satisfaction. From customer's personal

choices to their smallest of needs, AIenabled

hotel concierge bots can offer

minute service and careful assistance.

Artificial intelligence entering the hotel


Apple's Siri started providing voiceactivated

assistance to its mobile users to

an extent that it has become almost a norm

now. Amazon Echo and Alexa have also

joined the race of creating a richer, more

delightful customer experience using the

power of machine learning of AI software.

Ever since the artificially intelligent system

has crept into the hotel industry, the

hospitality sector is abuzz with AI's ability to

learn about customers using its data

analytics platform that helps hotel staff

create a better frame of customers. Utilizing

the full potential of AI software, they can

capture a gamut of information about:

l Customer Purchases

l Travel choices

l Journey patterns and itinerary

l Location preferences

l Hotel rating inquiries

l Payment methods

The knowledge gathered thus can further be

translated into providing insightful

experience to hotel guests as they travel,

inquire, stay and enjoy the luxurious hotel



Even though AI is regarded as the emerging

technology trend, the hospitality industry

has already experienced incredible benefits

and wide impact on their business

momentum. From the front desk where AIpowered

robotic concierge service stands

in the hotel rooms where voice-activated

assistants accelerate customer experience,

Artificial Intelligence is seen successfully

driving hotel industry today. The technology

enables personalized concierge services

and offers real-time recommendations and

easy service requests management. Hence,

we can conclude that AI is working far

beyond imagination for hotel systems, a

A Day in the Life of a Chef…

After first arriving at the restaurant, a chef

must immediately begin to take inventory

of all food and beverages. Produce

deliveries often arrive in the morning, and

it's the chef's responsibility to be sure that

all fruits and vegetables are fresh. Likewise,

the chef should check the rest of the

inventory to make sure all food; beverages

and condiments are being used before the

expiration date.

Kitchen staff usually begin to arrive a short

while after the chef does. This is the time

when work should commence on any

dishes that take longer to cook or can be

prepared ahead of time, such as soups or

desserts. Because a chef is usually also the

supervisor of all employees who work in the

kitchen, she also needs to make sure that

every worker arrives on time. If she's short

on staff, the chef should immediately begin

making arrangements for additional

workers to fill in if possible.

around 11:30 a.m., and it's then that the

In today's society, the pressure to

drink, smoke or use drugs to fit in is all

around our youth. Teens commonly

associate addiction with movie

images, or people they've seen at the

absolute lowest, worst point of their

what an addict looks like: desperate,

these ideas in mind, it's hard for them

their consequences seem less


Just as teens do, parents have their

own images of what someone with a

drug problem looks like, and it can be

as extreme as the child's view. These

preconceived notions help parents

stay in denial of a potential problem.

Plus, they lead to false measurement

know you can trust your team, and

your team can trust you.

By taking charge of your own career,

t a k i n g a c c o u n t a b i l i t y a n d

responsibility and staying focused on

how you can best serve your

company and your employees, you

also serve yourself in the best

possible way and will be recognized

for doing so.

Moreover, it is important to seek out

scenarios that challenge and even

terrify you. There is less competition

for these, and you will learn more and

have a greater chance of making a

difference and standing out when you

succeed. One might say that aspiring

future leaders should aim high and

prepare well. Think logistically and

consult with others, learn new skills

and be willing to fail, as you will learn

from the process.

Esteemed Compliments on Silver Jubilee

Mr. Ravindranath Yakapur

Director of Sales


Big heartfelt congratulations to the esteemed

management and faculty of Regency College of Hotel

Management & Catering Technology for completing

grand 25 years and imparting one of the best

educations in the country.

On this remarkable occasion, it gives me great

pleasure to share my journey in this industry. I have

been working with Hyatt since 2013, and it has been

nothing less than wonderful. Hyatt has given me an

opportunity to work with some of the best people all

across the world.

My piece of mind to all the aspiring students at your

college would be that to get believe in your selves.

Success comes with hardwork and passion in what

you do. Hence my advice to all my young friends would

be to have patience and don't get into a comparison

mode or get on a race with each other. If you are

passionate about hoteliering as a profession, success

is just definite. Our industry is very rewarding however

initial few years one has to invest and then there is no

looking back. Patience, Commitment and Passion –

remember these and Hotel Industry is an ocean which

has something for everyone.

I wish you all the best for the times ahead and would

also like to congratulate you all for choosing to be a

part of Regency College of Hotel Management who

ensure they are always delivering quality education

being in line with the industry trends.

All the Best
