Dehradun, 29 Sep: While addressing the newly admitted undergraduate and postgraduate students at the Dr Nityanand Auditorium of Doon University, founder of Super-30, Anand Kumar, said that the present time is of global competition and in such an era only that one would achieve success who works wholeheartedly and with total dedication. Giving his own example, Anand Kumar said that his father used to say that only one who works hard is entitled to rule. Education opens the doors of progress for every person. According to him, if money was to buy knowledge, education and success, then only rich people would have education succeed in the world.
While discussing in detail the academic environment available for competitive examinations in his institute and the perseverance of the students, he said that many students face the crisis of hunger but their true dedication and hard work helps them overcome such crises. Kumar shared many interesting memories from his student life. He stressed that challenges and difficulties always go hand in hand, and many times challenges suddenly arise for which we are not mentally prepared but we have to face these bravely. We should not only face them bravely, we should emerge out of them successfully.
Patience in life is an important weapon for human success, he declared. He gave the examples of many meritorious students, who belonged to rural and poor families, but their dedication and hard work gave them a new identity in this competitive world. He said that money is necessary for life but we should not run after money. When a student is successful, the teacher is the happiest person. He said that many times in life he faced temptations, threats and challenges but he always faced them with patience, courage and strength of character. It is his endeavour to motivate the poor students.
Vice Chancellor Professor Surekha Dangwal said that she is determined to make the university an excellent institution not only in the state but also in the country and therefore quality education is her priority. Professor HC Purohit, Prof RP Mamangai, Deputy Registrar Narendra Lal, Dr Kapil Sharma, Dr Naithani, Dr Nitin Kumar, Dr Ashish Sinha, Dr Rakesh Kumar, Dr Rajesh Kumar and Dr Ajeet Panwar were present along with teachers and research scholars of all disciplines.
