All set to face challenges in life


jubilant The students of CMR Institute of Technology.

The eighth graduation ceremony of the institute was filled with energy as well as enthusiasm as over 600 young minds got ready to face the world. The ceremony included not only engineering graduates but also MBA, MCA and M.Tech students.

The event started out with the felicitation of the rank holders in the institute. These students were overjoyed to see their hard work being appreciated.  “I aspire to become a good engineer and contribute to the society,” said N S Naganandini who received a medal for topping in the VTU exams. It was a great moment for the parents too.

“When I see my daughter today, I know she is confident and capable to face the challenges in life,” said Selvaraj, whose daughter was a rank holder in the exams.

The formal ceremony also included an address from S N Hegde, Former Vice Chancellor, Mysore University and Jyothi Prakash Mirji, Commissioner of Police. Jyothi Prakash Mirji had the students laughing out loud with his humourous speech. “Earlier we used to have a few ‘lathi charges’ every year with students — during admission for the college fee, for canteen food, for bunking and also for the exams.

But now everyone has become highly knowledgeable so we don’t face the same situation,” he joked. Congratulating the students for their achievement, he asked them to give importance to hard work and not money. On the other hand, S N Hegde spoke about the importance of excellence in the real world. “To be successful in life, the application of mind is more important than a degree,” he said. The college magazine Jnanadhara was also launched on the occasion.

It was a moment to cherish for the parents as well as children.

The students posed for photos in their graduating attire and were also happy with the fact that most of them had been placed and would soon be starting work.

“These four years have been a wait for me to get into the working environment.

College is just a training ground but I am looking forward to experiencing the corporate world,” said Priyanka, a graduating student. “Most of us have managed to get a company based on our interest and competency,” said Nandini, another student.

After the formal ceremony, the students were busy taking photographs and bidding goodbye to their friends. “It is a little sad to be leaving college but we are also excited on completing our course,” said Sneha, a graduating student and a rank holder.
