She was speaking at the valedictory of Geethayana-2012 held at GSSS Institute of Engineering and Technology for Women here on Monday.

Sharing her experiences, she said: “Earlier it was difficult for a woman to serve in the police department. Even my parents were hesitant to allow me to join the force. But I have proved my abilities while serving in the police force.”

A woman plays an important role in both family and profession. Young girls should overcome fear and be ready to shape their own future.

She also opined that uniforms should be made mandatory in colleges as it would help in erasing partiality among students.

Mentioning that she had been used to ‘Khaki’ for 35 years, Jija Harisingh told students not to have a negative attitude about uniforms.

JSS Mahavidyapeetha Centre for Management Studies director V Prakash said, “Lack of nutrition is one of the factors that affects studies. Coach P T Usha’s students were failing in international tournaments as they had neglected nutritious food.

“Later, they have improved on nutrition and now one of her students will represent the country in Olympics.”

He also urged students to work for the welfare of society after completing their graduation. He called upon students to be self-employed.

GSSS secretary Vanaja B Pandith, president Jaganath Shenoy, principal Prof P Prakash, Prof M V Srinivasa Rao, Ashok Shenoy and B K Nataraj were present.
