GOVERNOR DR Balram Jakhar has called upon students to widen their horizon of thoughts and not live only for self. He urged the students to study hard and excel in fields of Science and Technology so that they could contribute towards nation’s progress. The students must fulfill the nation’s expectations and be in touch with the reality, he added.
Dr Jakhar was addressing the annual function of the Sadhu Waswani College, Bairagarh on occasion of the silver jubilee year of the college. He advised the students not to become conceited and remain attached to their roots. Commerce and industries minister Babulal Gaur was also present at the function.
The Governor expressed concern over the fact that owing to the narrow-minded issues like casterism people were forgetting the basic values of their country. He said that we have to forget the differences between people and if we want to progress like China or even the smaller countries like Singapore and Malaysia, we would all have to discharge our responsibilities sincerely.
Jakhar expressed concern over the lack of dialogue and coordination between the students and teachers and said that the emotions like respect, veneration and submission are missing these days.
Babulal Gaur called upon the students to complete their education sincerely and with discipline and fulfill the dreams of their parents. He said that the state is still lagging behind in education sector and the private institutions have a big role to play in this regard.
President of the Sadhu Waswani Shiksha Samiti said that new facilities including hostel building have been added to the college. Principal Dr Meena Shrivastava read out the progress report while president of students’ council Rahul Gupta proposed vote of thanks.
