"Let us aim at leaving a better progeny for our country rather than leaving a better country for our progeny. Our country is what we are"
These lines have always inspired me and helped me to execute my responsibilities as a college Principal with utmost dedication and commitment. Youth is any country's biggest strength and they ultimately shape a country's future.
College years are the most crucial years in an individual's life. They mould and develop their unique personality as a being, which they carry along with them throughout their life. As we end this academic year, I wish to reiterate the importance of a few things that must be remembered always. Parents should remember that the children should not be forced but be guided to achieve whatever goals they may have in their minds, in and easy and pleasing manner, so that we may be able to discover that touch of genius in each one of them. Students, on the other hand should always have purpose in life and never let go of perseverance and dedication towards attaining their goals.
The impetus of education is to teach our children to think and develop a capacity to reason out facts. Students should keep in mind the importance of planning and prioritising their time in an effective manner, which are essential to achieve success. Do not surrender or become a slave to youthful fancies and indulgences. Learn to enjoy hard work - particularly your studies. Preserve our heritage and environment for our self as well as for the next generations.
The future belongs to you and therefore you need to prepare yourself for the active participation in the world. This participation demands that you become well informed and hence develop yourself like a pioneer and ultimately grow as responsible men and women. I wish you all a very bright and successful future ahead. May you achieve success in all your endeavours but at the same time learn to embrace failures as lessons rather than disappointment. I hope your college journey taught you some metamorphic lessons and gave you some unforgettable memories you would cherish for a lifetime.
Wishing you all Good Luck
