KMC felicitates top students of MU staff

Mangaluru: KMC Hospital held a felicitation programme to the meritorious children of their employees at Sanjeevini Hall, here on July 9.


The programme began with an invocation. Dean of KMC Mangalore Dr M Venkatraya Prabhu welcomed the gathering and said that he was honoured to share the dais with Capt Ganesh Karnik since he is an honest politician, two words that are mostly viewed as an oxymoron due to the state of today’s politics.

The felicitation programme was inaugurated by Karnik by lighting the traditional lamp along with other dignitaries on the dais.

Pro Vice Chancellor of Manipal University, Dr V Surendra Shetty said that health of the nation depends on the quality of its persons. The quality of a person depends on his education and health. He also said that today’s children are brilliant. “Parents should take care of their children and provide a conducive environment for them to study. Even though in many cases both parents work, it is still possible to keep aside some time for children and it is definitely worth it.”

Capt Ganesh Karnik expressed his sincere thanks to Dr TMA Pai, stating that he would not be where he is today if Dr TMA Pai had not started a college in Karkala, which provided him and his siblings with the opportunity to be educated. Addressing the students, Karnik said that the first lesson for children to learn is to recognize the sacrifice that their parents give in order to fulfill their wishes, and take every opportunity to make their parents proud. “If your goals are clear, then you can maneuver through any hurdle. If the goals are not defined, we will be stuck in the hurdles that we come across. We also need to remain focused on the goals.”

He further said, “Before doing anything, most people think of what they will get in return. There are also some students who get more concerned about who the invigilator will be during an exam rather than worrying about what may appear in the question paper. We should change that mindset and instead be thinking of what our duty is. During the Swachh Mangaluru Abhiyan that is conducted every Sunday by Ramakrishna Mission, there have been instances when some people would watch the cleaning being done and then say ‘there is a lot of dirt near our college too, please come there to clean it next time’. That is not the attitude for progress. It shouldn’t be spelled out that throwing litter on the streets is wrong; that should be common sense. As Gandhiji said, the change that we want to see in others must begin with ourselves.” While concluding, Karnik told the students that the secret of success is to be a good son/daughter, a good student and good to oneself.
