It is the Innovation that can lead our country towards development and help us in attaining a remarkable position on the world map. Today, our survival in this world of competency depends on our ability to innovate. It is said that much-celebrated Information age is now over and we are now in the creative era, where the speed of innovation is the only key to sustainable development. But we have also to remember that knowledge is one of the most powerful tools to succeed, so invest your time and efforts to identify appropriate competencies based on your interest, aptitude and social values associated with them.
It is good to adopt scientific approaches of west to solve the problems and for development, but we should not underestimate our own Indian way of thinking and indigenous philosophy of life which lays emphasis on "Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam" and well being of every individual, i.e., "General Interest, General Happiness". We must remain deeply connected to our roots and ethical bindings. This will help you to succeed in life not only academically but also as a good human being and a responsible citizen of country.
The ambitious schemes, viz. "Swachh Bharat", "Digital India", "Make in India" and "Quality Education to All" are also envisaged by Hon'ble Prime Minister attain again our ancient glory and to play the role of "World guru" in the 21st century. Keep all these at the center of your thoughts rather than at the periphery of your vision. We see you all as a vital partner in India's quest for progress and prosperity.
I wish you all the best for a successful career and life.
