Vijayakumar, Controller of Examinations, took part in the programme, 421 Under Graduates and 132 Post Graduates were awarded degrees.
The Chief Guest spoke on how the Graduation Ceremony came to be celebrated, the way it is done now. It has become more of a custom, a custom that represents ancient tradition. He congratulated the graduates for having been in a win-win situation and also for being overwhelmed with real joy, fulfillment and gratitude for the first time in life.
The Chief Guest went on to add that, the academic arena is the only platform where all the three stake holders: Parents, Gurus/Teachers, and Students, attain fulfillment. To defend the same, he quoted examples from the Thirukkural to best define and explain the supersensitive yet special bond between parents and children, and students and teachers.
The Chief Guest also elaborated on the eras of scarcity, affordability, affluence and abundance (that we live in). Hence, the students who graduate today and in the days-to-come must deem themselves blessed to be in a comfortable space like this and be responsible to the family and society. Finally, he concluded his speech saying, “Education is a continuous process where learning is internalized along the way.”
