Dressed in regal robes and carrying cameras in hand to record the moment about 800 students of Avanthi Group of Institutions celebrated Graduation Day at Kalabharati Auditorium on Tuesday.
The chief guest at the function was Vice-Chancellor of JNTUK G. Tulasi Ramdas who urged the graduates not to confine themselves to work only in IT and core sectors but to explore opportunities for engineers in Civil Services, public sector enterprises and various other fields that require administrators and production managers. He even encouraged friends to pool their talent and start a small enterprise as funding was easily available.
He gave them two mantras to follow to be successful in life. He called the first one the ‘Four H’: hard work, honesty, humbleness and humanity and the second the ‘Three C’: which is competence, commitment and confidence.
The guest of honour Rama Mohan Rao, Registrar Andhra University reminded students that they must follow a strong value system and respect global cultures to be successful. He told the students that that the opportunities to build a career were more now than ever before and the youth need to utilise resources most effectively to become change makers, creators and leaders.
Chairman of the Institute M. Srinivas Rao said that Avanthi Group of Institutions was set up to provide education to a student whether rich or poor or from a rural area or an urban area. That is why the campuses are located in serene environs away from the din of the city. He congratulated the students and told them that that they will be joining a network of alumni spread across the world and thanked the parents for putting their trust in the college.
He also pointed out that you need to start small to achieve big goals and told students to lean the importance of dignity of labour and not to be disheartened if they start with a small job but instead focus on picking up a skill set.
C. Mohan Rao, Principal Avanthi Institute of Engineering Technology, Makavarapalem listed the achievements of the college and the future plans.
Medals were distributed to toppers and certificates to the rest. Principals and the management of all the group institutes attended the function.
