DEHRADUN, 20 Jul: Michelin star chef, Vikash Khanna, said that it the duty of every Indian to pay the debt of his soil. While interacting with students during a live session in Graphic Era Hill University, the world famous chef, writer and film maker said that the success story of any successful person is incomplete until he does something for his country and his alma mater. On this special occasion Khanna also inaugurated a Mango festival organized in Graphic Era Deemed University.
Khanna said that the most important role in the life of any successful person is played by his alma mater which lays the foundation of his professional life. Even after collecting several degrees from abroad he cannot pay the debt of his alma mater and teachers. He asked the students of Graphic Era Deemed and Graphic Era Hill University to take an oath to do something for there alma mater after succeeding in life.
Any university is known because of its alumni and the alumni who do something for their institution become immortal for generations to come. “I have also tried to do my bit by making a museum of antique indian utensils in my alma mater”, he said.
He added that you will be meeting several veterans the moment you step in the professional world. Rather than getting intimidated, you should be curious and try to learn from them. The journey of your success story starts from where you begin. Those who want to become entrepreneurs should be ready to take risks in life. Devotion towards one’s work can transform an ordinary person to an exceptionally talented one.
