He said that the purpose of education should be to gain confidence in oneself, make an active contribution to society and above all, become a concerned citizen. Apart from that, he spoke about future technologies namely social media programming, cloud computing, analytics, mobile technology and Internet of Things (IOT).

Finally, he spoke about the purpose of life as being the respect that is earned based on intellectual currency, institutional currency, cultural currency and what one can give back to society as an individual. Prof N V Krishna Prasad, assistant principal, proposed the vote of thanks.
