Earlier, addressing the audience, Graphic Era Group of Institutions’ Chairman, Dr Kamal Ghanshala urged students to keep the spirit of learning alive in themselves in order to accept the technological changes. He observed that majority of the students of Graphic Era are from middle class background and that the management of the institution was fully aware of the struggles of the parents in ensuring quality of education for their children. He also called upon the students to keep their vision and dreams alive and also to keep learning throughout their lives. He also called upon them to continue to respect their parents and taking care of them. He also said that those who come from smaller towns and villages have a greater will to succeed and they work harder and struggled harder in order to achieve success. He observed that majority of those who are being felicitated today come from smaller and mufassil towns but they have achieved great success through sheer hard work.
Ghanshala said that it does not matter where the students are coming from. Placement records prove that children coming from small towns and cities are also reaching great heights. More than 36 students from Uttarakhand and Uttar Pradesh along with Himachal Pradesh, Bihar, New Delhi, Rajasthan, Punjab, Chattisgarh and J&K have received amazing packages he noted.
He said that this achievement is just the start of many challenges that will come ahead. Hard work, team spirit and the feeling of acceptance will help students not only in facing these challenges but will also help in sustaining in this era of ever changing technology. He emphasised that keeping the spirit of learning ignited is important. Ghanshala advised students to dream big and focus on their goals and care for their parents as well. Observing that in today’s corporate world, the employees keep on switching their jobs every few years and called upon them to keep their relationships intact with their ex bosses and colleagues because the world is round and anytime, they may find another opportunity to return to their old employers. He also sang an old Bollywood song originally sung by Kishore Kumar in the film Imtihan and picturised on film’s hero Vinod Khanna, “Ruk Jaana Nahi Tu Kahin Haar Ke, Kaanton Pe Chalke Milenge Saaye Bahaar Ke” in order to motivate the students not to give up.
Speaking to the media, later on, Dr Ghanshala said that Graphic Era Hospital has the newest technologies with best facilities of doctors for general public. He said that the Graphic Era Group of Institutions strives hard for excellency and has an excellent placement cell which has helped the students to secure good placements. He also asserted that being a first generation entrepreneur, he is well aware of the problems that the students may face and the Graphic Era management makes all out efforts to help out the students with a sympathetic perspective.
