Students should remain fearless and the way they handle fears determines whether they would achieve their goals or not, said Dr. Suman Govil, Senior Adviser, Department of Biotechnology, Ministry of Science and Technology.
Addressing the students during the 31st graduation ceremony at PSG College of Arts and Science, Dr. Govil said “It is easy to remain in the comfort zone. But the real lessons in life are learnt by pushing boundaries,” she added.
“Presenting papers at national or international seminars makes a huge difference. It boosts the confidence level of the students. Students should channelise their energy to develop frugal technologies which can reach the masses just like fold scope and microfuge developed by Dr. Manu Prakash so that benefits of science reach the poorest of the poor” she said.
Dr. Govil urged the parents to extend unconditional support to their children and communicate with them daily so that “your children cope up with harsh realities of today’s competitive world”.
Around 2434 students received degrees (27 doctorates, 658 PG and 1756 UG degrees) in the presence of L. Gopalakrishnan, Managing Trustee, PSG and Sons Charities, and several others.
