The university has been a citadel of learning named after Late Munjal Sahab, from whom I learnt so much over the years. On this eventful day, it is worthwhile to consider how you can use your education to create an impact on society. One of the most important challenges in one’s life is to win the battle of your mind and to move on from a regressive mindset to a progressive one. It’s also necessary to stay honest and true to your profession and act fearlessly. Learn to stay humble in your moments of glory. Conveying all my best wishes to the students and I’m confident that this university will work towards building an economically strong, happy, fair and harmonious India.”

Even though you’re graduating in the most challenging times in the history of the world, the raft of opportunities available to you is like never before.“
