He said, “There is a new revolution in the education space underway because of advancements in jobs and emergence of new markets and job profiles. Among the most important skills today are problem solving, communication, collaboration and creativity. As students prepare themselves for the future, they have to pursue SMART goals that are specific and measurable. They should be aspirational, but also have to be realistic at the same time.”
Adding up on these thoughts, Mr. Vinod Malhotra, Advisor, Seth Anandram Jaipuria Group of Educational Institutions, said, “Students must seek excellence. They must follow their core competencies and also be open to learning from outside the class. We should also introduce and develop the Indian ways of doing business. We should be proud of our country and culture.”
The Guest of Honour, Mr. Vijay Sardana, inspired the students with an address that was motivating and insightful. He said, “Life is not what others define for you. It is what you learn.

We need entrepreneurs to help realize our country’s great potential.”
The Chief Guest, Mr. Rajesh Vohra, proposed a fresh approach to learning. He said, “Students should move beyond rote learning and learn to look at the context in a problem. They should keep upskilling and be learners for life. It’s important to follow technology ahead of time and learn cross-functional skills. We must nurture resilience to navigate successfully in the challenging times.”
