'Youths must develop leadership qualities'

By Staff reporter

GUWAHATI, May 31 � �In order to script success stories of growth and development in North East, its educated youth should develop adequate leadership qualities and should constitute a huge reservoir of skilled manpower.�

Assam Governor JB Patnaik, while stressing the need to equip the students with adequate skill to ensure employability, said on Wednesday that the educational institutes of the region should adopt a modern approach to teach the students in a better way.

Speaking at the valedictory function of the North East Graduate Congress that started on May 29 with a two day programme, at the campus of Regional Institute of Science and Technology (RIST) Ninth Mile, Patnaik said that the universities should not just be a degree-giving factory; rather they should put emphasis on creating leaders.

The graduate congress was organized by the University of Science and Technology, Meghalaya in association with CSIR-North East Institute of Science Technology (CSIR-NEIST), and was attended by 1,000 fresh graduates from the North East.

Earlier, on the inaugural day of the Congress, a number of educationist and prominent personalities motivated the students to be avid learners and contribute their bit to build a strong society.

�A student may or may not be academically very brilliant, but to be successful it is necessary that one puts in his or her best efforts without giving up. There are countless examples in the history where the academically not so brilliant students have achieved unimaginable heights in their professional fields.�

Exhorting upon the students to dream big and work hard towards achieving one�s goal, Dr HS Ray, retired director of RRL Bhubaneswar said that having the necessary conditions of success is not good enough and one must try to achieve sufficient conditions of success.

Participating in the inaugural session of North East Graduate Congress, Ray said that persons like Thomas Alva Edison, Michael Faraday, Agatha Christie, RK Narayan and many others, whose works are remembered even today, were not able to prove themselves in their initial stage.

PG Rao, director, CSIR NEIST said that after graduation, the students are usually confused about choosing their field and through such programmes like graduate congress, one gets to meet the experts and get benefitted through their experience.
