Sunita Bhuyan, who is the head of leadership and developmental training at Syntel Inc – a global ITES firm – is the daughter of veteran Indian classical musician Minoti Khaund. A respected human resource professional, she plays a dual role in life balancing her profession and her love of music. She has excelled under her mother’s musical tutelage to emerge as one of the finest violinists in the country. A star performer in many prestigious stages across the nation, her life is a precarious balance of her love and passion for music and her own professional requirements that involves bringing out the best in people.
Sunita has designed a much-acclaimed HR module called Life enrichment through music, which uses the various nuances of melody and harmony to increase productiveness in employees. The module has fetched Sunita the award for most innovative learning practice at the world HRD congress last year, while she has also been invited to present this concept at the Harvard Club of New York later this year. The artist is also a recipient of the Indira Gandhi Priyadarshini award for Music.
