The need of the hour is for young graduates like to go out, inspire the world and make a difference. Looking for an opportunity to really benefit other people and delivering those benefits. Taking measured risks and winning more than losing. It means standing on your own feet, not worrying about what the boss thinks of you. Don’t just work hard, but get stuck in and look for improvement. Use any and every opportunity that presents itself to you. Each one is a gift to harness your potential and learn many new things. Utilize them well through them, learn to love and enjoy what you do! And ended the speech with a quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson, who says, The purpose of the life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”
The Chief Guest thereupon gave the degree to each student. After the distribution of degrees the oath taking of the degree recipients was done. Finally the Graduation Ceremony was dissolved, continued with this was the playing of National Anthem.
