Prof. Arup Varma, distinguished academician and researcher in management at Loyola University Chicago, delivered an intriguing; a thought - provoking talk at the 11th Research Colloquium organized by SME Research Colloquium Committee on 14th August, 2019 at Shiv Nadar University, NCR campus. The talk was titled "Strangers in an alien land: Why should host country nationals help them?" Human beings have always travelled far and near in search of greener pastures.  However, once they get there, they need help from host country national to survive and thrive.  But, why should natives help? What's in it for them?   Sharing instances from his life, as a Ph.D. scholar at Rutgers University, Prof. Varma reflected upon his encounters in different parts of the world that invoked his research curiosity to unravel the complicated expatriate - host country national relationship.  He also urged MBA  students to consider a career in academics, and to monitor their behavior at all times, as each one of us is a leader whether we believe it or not -- "being a leader is not a choice, as someone or the other is always looking up to us."
