72nd Independence Day Celebration

Dr. R. Sugant, Professor - Marketing and Chairman - Placements, SDMIMD, hoisted the Tri-Colour during the 72nd Independence Day Celebration and addressed the gathering.

Prof Sugant urged the students to ponder over "why is it that even after 71 years, India is home to over one third of the poor in the world or why we do not have even one institution in Top 100 while China has 11 or why we continue to kill people in the name of not only religion, but caste, love, cow and what not, why in spite of having vast resources and intelligent people, we have not prospered?"

Prof. Sugant said that the key difference between developed countries and India is their citizens are “responsible”. He recalled the statement made by Pt. Jawaharlal Nehru on the eve of our independence “Freedom and power bring responsibility” and asked the gathering 'Is being “Being responsible” difficult? and said it just entails being dependable, keeping promises, honoring commitments, accepting the consequences for what we say and do, not making excuses or blame others when things go wrong, being disciplined and following the law of the land – in letter and spirit.

Prof Sugant suggested that the students should introspect and ask themselves “are we responsible?” Further, he urged them to take a vow to be “responsible” citizens and if all of us, citizens of India start “being responsible” we can bring about a massive change.

Honorable Director Dr. N.R. Parasuraman, Faculty & Staff Members and Students, joined the celebration. The celebration concluded with the distribution of sweets and community breakfast at the Institute Mess.
