While doing a project, it rarely gets successful in the first attempt. There will be two or more attempts needed. Hence, we have to learn from the failures also. Every day is a learning process. There are thousands of ideas in us and we need to sell those ideas.” He appreciated all the students for the projects done by the students who have thought independently and took courage to experiment.
In the presidential address, Fr Dionysius Vaz SJ, rector of St Aloysius Institutions said, “We all learn by watching, listening and by doing. The students have prepared the models by themselves in large numbers. It is not enough to have a talent, but one should also have the interest. A product should be designed with the purpose to benefit society. To achieve a goal, we should dream big and make the dream come true.” He appreciated all the students for their efforts in preparing the models.
Umesh J A, junior training Officer proposed the vote of thanks. Robin Vas, junior training officer conducted the programme.
