'Lack of integrity stunting India's growth'

Addressing the gathering at the inauguration of new college premises of Sarosh Institute of Hotel Administration at Kodakal here on Monday he said that India has come a long way.
 “We have galloped a great deal. From being known as a Third world country to one of the nations which can sit across the table with the super powers of the world, it is true that we cannot be ignored,” Justice Hegde said and added that if at all integrity factor was a bit more among Indians, India could have been in a better position.

Suggesting that every professional college must take steps to impart knowledge about the integrity and ethics of that particular profession, Justice Hegde called upon the students to be satisfied with what is legitimately theirs.

“Transparency International has rated India as the 78th most corrupt nation in the world. The only way of controlling things from becoming worse is by developing sense of satisfaction with what you have. You have to grow but in the process you should meet your ambition with legitimate means. Let ambition not be obsession,” he said.

Earlier, MP (Rajya Sabha) Oscar Fernandes said that colleges must take steps to accommodate as many vocational courses as possible utilising the same infrastructure. “Government too wants technical colleges to take up allied courses as there is shortage of infrastructure. In this quest, government plans to utilise village schools to start vocational courses and in the process, there are plans to start as many as 50,000 vocational training centres in the nation,” he said.

Nitte University Pro-Chancellor N Vinay Hegde presided over the programme. Nitte University Vice-Chancellor Dr Shantharam Shetty, Trustee B R Hegde, Sarosh College Principal Matharani Mathias and others were present.
