All of you have got this opportunity and it comes along with the responsibility of making the best of it and becoming the catalyst to bring enormous change in the society. Energy is the core component for human life. Electricity gives access to education, entertainment and enables functioning of several day to day activities. It is exciting to be a part of such a sector. You all must drive yourselves with passion to know and work towards the various issues that the country is facing in the energy domain to make the country a better place to live in. I wish you all a great success.”

You all must have a vision in life and must utilise these two years in making it a life changing experience.

Welcoming the new batch, Dr. Himadri Das, Director, Great Lakes, Gurgaon, began with a brief introduction of the institute to the students. He also inspired students by sharing achievements of the previous batches and encouraged them to surpass those achievements. “Great Lakes has a tradition of giving a unique name to every new batch. This new batch will be called “Photons” which means packets of of light energy and the name was chosen to be in sync with the current government’s interest in renewable energy, in general, and solar energy,  in particular”, announced, Dr. Das.

Congratulating the new batch, Dr. BSK Naidu, Chairman Emeritus, Great Lakes,Gurgaon, said, “It is important to have high scores, presentation skills, analytical skills and good experience to move ahead in life. But it is passion that will take you to places. People with passion always challenge themselves, beating their own benchmark and then looking for new benchmarks. This is how they turn impossible in to possible”. He further inspired students by giving examples of great personalities such as Mahatma Gandhi, Abraham Lincoln and Sachin Tendulkar, “they all followed their passion without compromising their values in life,” expressed, Dr. Naidu.

Motivating the new batch, Dr. V.P. Singh, Programme Director, PGPM (Energy), Great Lakes, Gurgaon, expressed “the happiest moments come to life only after we cross the hurdles or problems we face in life. But it is important that we all stay motivated through tough times and stay undeterred towards our goals. He suggested that anticipation is the key to stay motivated. “We should keep working harder as we never know what great presents life has in store for us, this feeling of anticipation makes things exciting and pleasurable”, said, Dr. Singh.
