Gracing the occasion, Shri Rajnath Singh, said that he was quite delighted to address the young diploma recipients of the institute and urged the students to follow three rules in life always. The rule of no difference between words and deeds, the rule of hard work with right intention and lastly the rule of having a large heart always. He added that the there is a direct relationship between the largeness of heart and the maximization of happiness. According to him real spiritualism lies in living a kind and large hearted life which has no place for I, me and myself. He also requested the students to think about why the Indian culture is accepted and recognized as the best culture in the whole world?
He gave a very small example to explain this further by saying that if western students would be asked , Who is the greatest King on earth and Why?, they would take names of people who have earned a lot of wealth and land. But if Indians are asked the same question their answer will mention kings like Raja Ram or Raja Harishchandra who were great in deeds and character. He ended his address by asking the students to always follow the path of sacrifice, hard work, strong character and dedication in life.
Shri Sharad Jaipuria in his welcome address extended a warm welcome to Mr. Rajnath Singh and congratulated the students on successfully completing their Post Graduate Programme in Management. Speaking on the occasion, he urged the students to adopt a culture of Hard Work, Integrity and Diligence in their profession. He added that there is no substitute for hard work, and core values of hard work, determination, and commitment should always guide the students towards finding their purpose in life and achieving their goals. He gave examples of India’s most successful and towering business leaders and Chief Executives coming from modest circumstances, who worked hard for everything in their lives but were able to transcend their circumstances and thrive.
