On the path of success one may, sometimes, face certain difficulties and at that time, do not react in a manner that will show weakness of mind. The young students should always keep in mind where they have studied and never forget their Alma Mater.

While interacting with students, ChetanBhagat, Indian Author and Columnist, said, “When you get recognition and awards for something, you feel, I should do it more. This is the recognition of your potential. Potential doesn't mean that the result is guaranteed. You have to do the work and then you turn that potential into something beautiful.”
