Addressing the gathering, the Chief Guest Mr Bhojaraj Vamanjoor narrated his own story to success and said, “Do not underestimate any work. Have confidence in yourself and move forward in the field you love. Education is very important. No one can steal the education from you. You are lucky to have joined the institution which never discriminates on the basis of religion, caste, etc and gives equal opportunities to all. Do well and be successful”. Speaking on the occasion Honourable Chief Guest Mr Rajendra K.P. said, “Vision is very important to lead a successful life. Have a dream of your own. Once you have a dream, you will be able to set goals and achieve them. Make use of the opportunities life presents to you. You can even become entrepreneurs if you have a vision and zeal to achieve”. Former Director Rev Fr Leo Dsouza SJ said. “Never consider ITI education as low grade. Skill based education which you get from ITI, opens the door of opportunities and gives you earning power. Many students who have graduated from ITIs are better placed financially, even better than so called engineers and doctors”. In his Presidential Address Rev Fr Denzil Lobo congratulated the students and staff for the programme and said, “India has achieved greater heights in many fields like technology, medicine, space research, etc. On the other hand, India is struggling with corruption, poverty, violence, terror, immorality, etc. We have got much from the society and we have a duty of giving back to the society. We should never compromise our moral principles for selfish motives. We should be the agents of peace, harmony and brotherhood”. Other dignitairies on the dais were Rev Fr Eric Mathias SJ- Director of the institution, Mr Vincent Mendonsa-Principal, and Mr Umesh J.A.- Convener of the programme.
