BANGALORE: The investiture ceremony at Auden High School, Banashankari, began with the compere saying: “A leader is one who takes you to the place where you ought to be but not necessarily where you want to be.” Surely, a sense of responsibility descended on the Audenites’ souls with this utterance.
Ekalavya recipient and swimmer Hakimuddin S. Habibullah was the chief guest and he urged the members of the school council to work hard and better their best by quoting Gandhiji’s principles.
Principal Shubha Madan brought to light the achievements of the chief guest. She told the new leaders that leadership is not what they aspire to be but what they really are.
School captain Harsha said: “I believe that good aims can be reached by good means. Hence, I take inspiration from this.”Investiture at VIPS
