Education is an everlasting wealth that grows when given to others, according to Justice V. Ramasubramanian, Judge, Madras High Court.
Delivering the Graduation Day address at Rajah Serfoji Government College here on Saturday, Justice Ramasubramanian said that education did not stop with graduation. It was a continuous process. Students should read whatever they come across and update their knowledge.
Education would become meaningless if the educated did not care for people in distress and help them. Thiruvalluvar said in one of his couplets that knowledge gained becomes useless if people did not treat misery of others as their own.
There were a lot of avenues and opportunities for the youth to utilise them and come up in life. In the future, India would be a country with a large population of youths, who would go to the aids of Europe and other continents which would have a large population of old people, Justice Raqmasubramanian said. He cited many examples in which people had risen in life against all odds.
He distributed degrees to the graduates. Chellappa, Principal presided over the convocation. Six hundred students received their degrees.
