The students are taught and coached very well. I just hope that he does well and bring a good name to the college and to us,” said Sachin’s mother Prabhamani.

College principal H K Shobha started her speech by describing it is an important phase of a student’s life. She said that one has to attend classes regularly to understand the subjects and get good marks in the exams.
