Transferring and imparting all my knowledge into learning for my students
Education plays a pivotal role in the social, economic, and cultural development of a Nation. It is considered sacred enough to refrain from considering/ calling it an industry. My experience in the domain spans over two decades, and my entire career to this day has been dedicated to this field. Right from the beginning, I have been deeply consumed with just one thought on my mind: Transferring and imparting all my knowledge into learning for my students. I have always staunchly believed that the teachers possess the power of influencing and igniting minds.
Recently, as the Chairman of SSIPMT, I realized that my responsibilities have catapulted into a different zone altogether. My responsibility has gone beyond my students and extends to the society and nation too. I derive this feeling from the words of Swami Vivekananda. His words “Arise, Awake and Stop Not Till the Goal is reached '' are deeply etched on my mind.
We dream of painting a New India, the India that shines bright in the whole world
There are myriad challenges that lie ahead of me. However, as Chairman, the most daunting challenges that I face are: Transforming students into industry-ready professionals, Instilling the right mix of technical, ethical, and interpersonal skills in the students.
SSIPMT Raipur and I have the same vision – “We dream of painting a New India, the India that shines bright in the whole world”.
