These are hard times, challenging times. The Covid-19 pandemic has globally affected the lives of people; the world that will emerge post COVID-19 is expected to be significantly different from the world that existed during pre-Covid times. In every crisis there is an opportunity & a smooth sea never made a skilled sailor. So my dear students, we all must join forces and emerge stronger than before by utilizing these times to the best of our abilities.

During the unprecedented national lockdown, the institute stood with its students; the faculty strived hard to provide academic support to the students in the best possible manner, in crisis management mode as the situation had changed overnight without any warning. In this unique situation, all the academic activities, mid semester examinations, internal assessments, projects, dissertations, mandatory internships, finishing school etc. were conducted quite smoothly on the institute MOODLE. Many students faced different kinds of difficulties and the institute made a sincere effort to answer queries, give support and attend to each case.

The new academic session 2020-2021 begins from 15th July 2020 in online mode. It is expected that the students will respond and will once again rise to the challenges of online learning. Sometimes, ‘In the waves of change, we find our true direction’.  This is a time for innovation, for acquiring new skills, identifying future employability prospects; all under a severely constrained environment. This is a time to introspect, become a self learner, learn new skills, develop new ideas, collaborate with other learners and try to make every moment count for you. Make the best possible use of IT resources; most importantly, do not waste your precious time, do not lose hope and remain focussed. Remember, ‘Tough times do not last, tough people do’. At the end of the day, you are answerable to yourself. Do not hide behind false excuses, it’s your life and what you do today will have a lifelong impact on your career. There is a saying… “The pessimist complains about the winds, the optimist expects it to change, the realist adjusts the sails”. So my dear students be realistic, accept the change, adjust yourselves to the ‘new normal’ and emerge a winner at the end of the session/course. Help your teachers help you. Attend all online classes; submit your lab reports/assignment on a weekly basis. By doing so, you will be able to complete your degree in a timely manner. Provide meaningful & precious feedback for further improvement of all activities.

The Buddha Said “Every morning we are born again. What we do today, is what matters the most”.

This is the first time that a regular session will be conducted in online mode; you all will be missed on the campus. Explore the possibilities of conducting online club & professional chapter activities.

Take care of your own and your family members’ physical and mental health. Whenever you feel any need remember that the faculty and the institute authorities are just a click away from you and will readily provide all academic and other support as and when needed. 

“You can’t go back and change the beginning but you can start where you are and change the ending”.   

My dear students, remember, no matter what you do, where you go from here, you will always represent this great old Institution and you must do all in your power to earn goodwill and good name for your alma mater and must always try to live up to its 62 year old grand legacy.

On behalf of the management, faculty, alumni and staff, I wish all my students all the best for all their present and future endeavours.
