He mentioned the education and learning that take place in the institute have to benefit not only the student, but the whole society that extends up to the globe and the universe.

He emphasized the role of cooperation between students and teachers. He quoted the popular passage "Sahanaavavatu, Sahanau bhunaktu, Sahaveeeryam karavavahai, Maa vidvishaamahai."

He quoted passages from Bhagavadgita. He quoted Chanakya and told the convocating gradudates to utilize the knowledge gained in the course with focus on experiments, experience, excellence and expansion of the knowledge.

Getting a master's degree is only stage in the continuous learning requried in the life. The graduates were told to do "abhyas" on a continuous basis to keep abreast of knowledge and utilize it effectively in various projects and endeavours.

I got an opportunity to personally thank the minister for his convocation address and emphasize the need for continuous learning.

I am an advocate of continuous learning and created schemes of knowledge revision for Industrial Engineering and MBA courses. Both the schemes are well received globally.
