Hyderabad: “Participation in extra-curricular activities puts students in situations where they must socialise with other children. Making new friends and meeting students with similar interest will be a boon to their life. It will foster better communication skills and leadership abilities too,” said Commander VK Jaitly (Retd.) Indian Navy.
He was speaking as the chief guest for the technical events of the three-day Pramana-2020 (an amalgamation of technical, cultural and management events) inaugural session held at Sivaji Auditorium earlier this week.
“If you want to achieve great things in life, you need to set goals. They are a great way to determine a clear direction of where you want to go,” he said. Citing the examples of Sundar Pichai and Satya Nadella, he said that ‘with hard work, determination and some smart planning, you really are capable of so much more than you think. Don’t ever underestimate what you are capable of. Remember to dream big and aim high.’ He also advised the students to convert their dreams into desire and follow the same with great determination, dedication and discipline.
Director and Producer (Telugu Film Industry) Tammareddy Bharadwaja was chief guest for cultural events of Pramana and exhorted students to dream high for their bright future.
Dr P Trinatha Rao, convenor, Pramana welcomed the gathering while Prof. A Sreeram, Director, Students Affairs said fests are an essential part of the students to improve their organising abilities. DVVSR Varma, resident director, advised students to enjoy the three-day fest and carry good memories home.
