Dr. Gopal, Director of the School welcomed the Chief Guest with a momenta and his welcome address exhorted the students to be successful in life. He said for being successful it is necessary amongst other things, to be disciplined and students must think out of the box. Additionally he said that today merely being a graduate is not enough. One must acquire knowledge and for which it is necessary to go in for higher studies. Many learned people have said that our graduates and post graduates are unemployable. And what we learn in the school is irrelevant. Dr. Gopal in his welcome address, said that this is probably true because we have forgotten the art of thinking out of the box, we have forgotten the art of applying what we have learnt. What the school teaches at the undergraduate level is the fundamentals. Without the fundamentals it is not possible to be successful.
