This year has been one hot Indian summer in Switzerland – and in most of Europe. Most of us have had a well-deserved lovely, long summer holiday. And now, for many, it’s back to school, back to work, back to routine, back to life or simply – back on track.

Namaste Switzerland has worked through its holiday season to make its first public presence through a collaborative event. And has ensured that the ‘On Track Again’, September 2018 issue is yet another interesting one.

We profile Ruby Bakshi Khurdi of Montreux who has been, of late, making waves in her arena of public speaking. She’s been on an achievement and award-winning spree.

We also feature Shivangi Walke, who leveraged her professional experience as a learning and development professional to begin her own mentorship program for women leaders and co-found a company that provides soft-skills leadership programs to the Swiss workplace.

We speak to Arun Balajee who tells us more about what some of the Indian students are doing to make the integration of new Indian students at ETH easier and better.

The end of summer holidays marks the beginning of the new academic year. We bring you a brief guide on the local school system in Switzerland, which is decentralized and independent – yet has one aim: to ensure that your young ones are equipped to handle their adult, professional lives.
