Mangaluru: 'Expert Day', the 31st annual celebration of Expert Pre-University College, Kodialbail was held here on December 26 and 27.
The chief guest, Raghavendra Auradkar, additional director general of police (ADGP) and chief of recruitment and training, shared his inputs on life and education and inspired young minds. He said, “It is impossible to reach the top and maintain the same without consistent effort and hard work. There are no alternative paths and shorts cuts to success. But no matter how famous one becomes, one should be grateful to one’s teachers and always remember their contributions in one’s life."
He said, “Honesty and simplicity have to be inculcated in our lives. If a person thinks that he/she has achieved everything in life, then there can be no further growth and development, one must thirst and hunger for knowledge. One must have faith and practice perseverance. Without self-confidence, it is impossible to achieve anything."
Arunima Sinha climbed the Mount Everest with an amputated leg and achieved her goal. She is not just an inspiration for physically challenged people but also for all of us. If we fail in something, it should be considered as a stepping stone towards success, and a lesson should be learnt out of it."
Guest of honour, retired professor emeritus in Surgery, KS Hegde Medical Academy, Mangaluru, professor C R Ballal , illuminated the minds of students by encouraging them to take up medicine as it is one of the best career options. He highlighted the need for students to involve themselves in extra curricular activities to enhance their knowledge.
Vice - chairperson of Expert Educational and Charitable Foundation Ushaprabha N Nayak addressed the student fraternity and said, “In today’s competitive world, hard work alone will lead us to success in life. We have to cross all types of hurdles gracefully in life with self-confidence and trust. At times we need to overlook the criticisms. We have to put up our efforts, work sincerely without any expectations or recognitions of any type from anyone.”
Chairman Narendra L Nayak said, “The students have to inculcate hard work and sincerity as the two are important aspects of life. It is not possible to achieve everything in short time. I started my classes on 29th December 1986 and after 30 years when I think back the way he reached this day and I feel very proud of himself. But still what I have achieved is less than what I have to achieve for the days to come. The sky is the limit for the achievements and success .”
