Therein lies the meaning of life, says V. Irai Anbu
THANJAVUR: Tourism and Culture Secretary V. Irai Anbu on Friday exhorted students to try and identify their individual talent given to them as gift by God.
Participating in ‘College Day’ celebration at AVVM Sri Pushpam College at Poondi, near here, Mr. Irai Anbu said the meaning of life lay in finding the latent talent in an individual. One might be good in science. Another in fine arts such as painting or dance. Yet another might be good in literature. Hence, it is important to find out one’s talent or skill and nurture it.
He said ‘College Day’ was an event for taking stock of the year-long activities and exhibiting the talent of students. The term kalluri could be found in Seevaka Sindhamani. Everything revolved round the world and most of the literary works in Tamil such as Thirukural, Naladiyar and Ettuthogai spoke about the world.
Students are in a preparatory stage in a college and they emerge out as polished persons like a stone sculptured.
Chancellor of Ponnaiah Ramajayam Institute of Science and Technology University P. Murugesan said the college was a pioneer in providing education to rural students in the area.
Secretary and correspondent of the college K. Thulasiah Vandayar said education gave confidence to youth. One should not desist from duty and should not hide anything from God, parents and teachers.
Principal S. Balu spoke.
Prizes were distributed for academic proficiency.
