To the students of Outgoing 4th Semester 2014-16 session

My dear students,
 After being together for two years, the department formally bids you farewell today. As you go out into the big, bad world outside the serene and green Golapbag campus, I share my thoughts with you.

I have no reservation in commenting that this is the best batch I have had over the last decade. (May be the current 2nd semester students will force me to repeat this line next year too!!)

Not all of you are cut out for academics no doubt, but then different people are made for different things in life. What strikes me is that almost all of you have shown a keen interest to participate, to engage and to learn things, both inside and outside your curricula. What pleased me even more was you attachment among yourselves and also with the department and the Institution. The cultural performances that you put up over the last two years on several occasions led us to believe that you can excel in this area too. There are natural leaders and you can work as a team – traits that are required in today’s world.

My best wishes for whatever you do in future. You can call upon my cooperation and guidance for any positive endeavour. Remember, successful people are those who find out very early in life what they are good at and pursue that course.

What would be you clarion call when you go out into life’s battlefield? I have a suggestion: Liye sapne nigahon mein, chala hoon teri rahon mein, Zindagi aa raha hun main . . . . . . . .  

 Your RM-Sir.
