We all talk about green earth, save the planet, plant the tree et al. Let us focus on the tree of our life. A tree which has grown to such a height that nothing obstructs the Sunlight should remember the deep roots are on firm ground. The Institute was a fertile soil which nurtured us when we were tiny plants. It has imparted the Professional Knowledge for rest of our Life and the career growth.
The reality of living in a globally integrated world is upon us. We now see that the movement of information, work and capital across developed and developing nations is much easier than it was 2 decades back. Old friends are rediscovered as second or third connection through social networks. This will make us believe—we are all now connected – economically, technically and socially. But we’re also learning that just being connected is not sufficient. The inability to collaborate may be the new “National waste.” We should Leverage relationships, Bring the right people together from anywhere at any time, Tap into the knowledge of people we know and don’t know.
We should provide good anchorage for young generation. Help them in overcoming small hurdles in the beginning of race and guidance for developing new Goals. When it comes to journey of life not only speed but the direction matters. Alumni community has this responsibility.
;Why is that many are not able to achieve the full potential they have? One of the Major reason is lack of resources for continuing education. Distinguished alumnus of the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Bombay, Romesh Wadhwani, gifted his alma mater $5 million at the IIT Bombay Golden Jubilee Conference 2008, “I owe my success in life to the superior education I received from IIT Bombay, and this is my humble way of saying thank you,” said Romesh Wadhwani.
Having such live examples I would encourage and insist every one to be here in every form with “Mind-and-Body-Heart-and-Soul” to build SGGS town of success.
