Chief Guest of the Day, Chancellor of ICFAI University, Sikkim, Vice Chancellor, Registrar, Board of Governors and Members of Academic Council, Heads of Departments, Faculty and Management, my beloved graduating students and their proud parents, distinguished invitees and friends!
As the Visitor of the University, it is my privilege to extend my warm greetings to ICFAI Sikkim fraternity on the historic occasion of its First Convocation Day.
I am aware of the mandate and vision of the ICFAI Group, a leading non-profit private higher educational venture in the country. It is indeed heartening to witness its dedicated effort to serve the nation with its 11 multidisciplinary universities and nine business schools across the country. I am happy to share that ICFAI University Sikkim has already achieved its first milestone of producing 1000 graduates in various disciplines since its inception.
The University's priority on research and technology based curriculum is futuristic and job oriented.
This is what all institutions of higher learning should aspire for in this globalised and competitive world. My compliments to the faculty and management guided by the vision of its founders for enriching the academic landscape of Sikkim and the nation in general, producing highly skilled professionals and academicians.
My Dear Students,
This is a defining moment in your life. It is a day that carries with it the testimony of your hard-work, commitment and your perseverance to secure a degree at a university of your choice. I must tell you that a degree from a university prepares you for a lifelong journey of learning, where you will be expected to integrate your experiences with your knowledge to take on future challenges. While the changing world might pose challenges for you, I am sure your degree and your experiences here will give you the fortitude to face them.
The degree you receive today is not only the result of your hard work and dedication but also a testimony of patience and sacrifice of your parents. It remains your lifelong responsibility that you must be grateful to your parents and teachers for making you what you are today.
The window of opportunities lie ahead of you as our country is growing faster than ever before. The nation anticipates the skilled and productive youth to contribute further and sustain our growth story. Therefore, you must rise up to the expectations the nation has on you as skilled professional and productive citizen.
I wish you the best of luck, as you seek to pursue the career that motivates and inspires you. I am also certain that you will use your knowledge to help make this world a better place, not just for you but for others as well.
May God bless you with plenty of success and happiness in life.
