“It is the realisation of power within you will make what you want to be. It cannot be gained through books,” said P. Rajeev, Airport Traffic Manager, Salem Airport.

After inaugurating the Business Line Club under the aegis of The Hindu Business Line and Karur Vysya Bank (KVB), at the Muthayammal Engineering College here on Thursday, Mr. Rajeev said that Knowledge could be gained by reading books. “But one cannot gain wisdom. Wisdom is the refined form of knowledge,” he said.

To become successful in one's life, he pointed out that integrity was the best honesty to oneself.

“You cannot do a work for money alone. The work is to be done for the sake of work and not for material gains. Money is just a by product and becoming rich is the result of a quality in a person,” he said.

He said that failures came from within. Greed and fault were the traits that bring downfall.

“You have enough potential in you to become what you want to be. You can raise yourself to the level of supreme soul and enjoy the bliss.

He asked, “Which is the best quality in human being? Is it the ability to move, taste, smell, see and hear? No. There are other living being on earth which also share the similar qualities, even better than us. As we are human beings, we should develop humane spirit,” he said. Mr. Rajeev pointed out that the special gift given to human beings was the power to think.

The history proved that persons with good thinking capacities and communication skills had never failed.

Those who spoke included College Principal M Madheswaran, Secretary K Gunasekaran, AGM, KVB S Raghunathan and R .Premanand, DRM, The Hindu, Salem.
