I must begin by congratulating you for successfully completing your higher secondary education and also for getting admission to various programs in prestigious NMIMS University Indore Campus.
I can confidently say that you are going to have best years of your student lives in coming years till your respective graduations.
You have to understand that from this point onwards you not only have to learn but have to learn how to learn
Education is not only about the domain knowledge in chosen stream but also about character building. Kulapati Shri K.M. Munshi says – “It is not enough to be a good engineer or a good doctor but we all also should learn to become a good son or daughter, good brother or sister, a good husband or good wife”
The mechanism of learning has to be readapted by you all. It will have to be more of “learning by doing” as the great scientist Albert Einstein also believes "The only source of knowledge is experience."
Now coming to city of Indore, you must have heard a lot about it. This city with large industry base will help you to interact and work with them. There are institutes around like IIT, IIM and other which will challenge you to do your best in various student’s activities. We at NMIMS will help you to pursue your vision on all fronts and take charge of your career.
Further Indore offers a wonderful cosmopolitan culture with full opportunities to spare your energies for the cause of the society. It will depend upon you how you explore this opportunity and contribute to the society. The society, teachers and parents have very high hope from you and I am sure you stand tall by your deeds. Should you need anything from me don’t hesitate to contact me. I wish you all the best.
In the end I quote the great Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. "The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character––that is the goal of true education."
