Manipal, Nov 21, 2017: Maini Group Chairman Sandeep Maini told students on the second day of the 25th convocation of Manipal University at KMC Greens in manipal. “The future decade belongs to India.
We will have only ourselves to blame if we do not make good use of this opportunity. Use this opportunity to fulfil your dreams, work hard and passionately and nurture your ambitions. This is the time to do things differently, innovate and pioneer; take calculated risks and enjoy the experience while learning and in action,”
Maini said that he perceived two key changes taking place in the world over the next decade — a time when the present lot of youngsters will be active in making a positive change in this world. And, because of the changes on the horizon, the youth of the future will have tremendous power in their hands to make a difference.
“We, as a young country, will wield this power in the years to come. This tremendous power and potential of the youth if acted on positively and cohesively can change the destiny of our nation and the world in the years to come. We can chart a course of progress be it political, social, economical or spiritual,” he said.
As for the changes which he envisioned, one is, “IOT (Internet of Things) and automation will take over a large part of how we live, work, commute and engage. Like all technologies and innovation, this will have a both positive and negative impact while being disruptive. “You all will have a key role to play in understanding the negative impacts and finding the right solutions to mitigate this. The other is the concept of resource sharing from a convenience and economy point of view,” Maini said.
The following won gold medals for the best outgoing students: Sharal Niveditha D.S.A., B.Sc Nursing; Anisha Mariam Daniel, Allied Health Sciences; Vaishali Todi, Biotechnology; Tejaswini M.S., Post Graduate in ME Embedded Systems, and Umanshu Dhingra, M.Pharm.
