JNTU-Kakinada Vice-Chancellor G. Tulasi Ramdas has exhorted the youth to strive for development of the country, saying that what the nation wants is “creators” who excel not only in studies but also extra-curricular activities.
Women, who constitute 47 per cent of the population, have to be duly cared for and supported if the nation is to achieve inclusive development, he has asserted.
Speaking at the inaugural function of the national youth festival ‘Vignan Nirulotsav-2013’ that began at Vignan Institute of Technology & Science for Women on Friday, Mr. Ramdas said today’s youth had immense career opportunities in various fields and they should acquire the skills required to climb up the ladder without being dragged down by self-defeatist attitude and daunting tasks.
Companies such as Microsoft were coming to India to pick up talented ones and it was up to the students to match their requirements.
The youth should have three Cs — competence, confidence, and commitment — to realize their dreams. One thing they have to do without fail is to interact with achievers and be inspired by their success stories and put in hard work to carve their own places of pride.
Vignan educational institutions vice-chairman Lavu Srikrishnadevarayalu said due emphasis was laid on improving life skills of students which could not be ignored in the competitive world.
Nearly 7,000 students of various colleges from across the country participated in the event.
Vignan’s Nirula Institute of Technology & Science for Women principal P. Radhika was present.
