“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all of your thoughts break their bonds; your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive and you discover yourself to be a greater person than you ever dreamed yourself to be.”
——-Indian Philosopher Patanjali
That precisely is the aim of true and value based education.

Below are the most important instructions you need to follow in letter and spirit:

Also keep in mind that hard work, dedication and perseverance are the most important traits in a person that leads to success. Try to imbibe these traits while you are in this college. Dear students, do not forget –
The heights by great men reached and kept
Were not attained by sudden flight,
But they, while their companions slept,
Were toiling upward in the night. (H.W.Longfellow)
