Happy 60th Independence Day !!

Dear LNMIITians,

On the eve of the 60th Independence Day of our motherland, I extend to you all my greetings and best wishes for your prosperity.

Over the past few decades, one of the arenas where our nation has proved out to be indomitable is in the abundance of world-class talent pool for the Information and Communication Technology based industries(with the current progress rate being 28% p.a.). I am glad to observe that LNMIIT is also playing its role in this progress, by empowering us all with state-of-the-art skills to carry this baton ahead.

It gives me immense pleasure to observe all my fellow batch mates doing well in their respective domains. I specially convey my congratulations to all those who could not manage to get placement through college, but fought on their own to grasp jobs no-less-better than those offered at campus. In doing so, they have achieved self-confidence as a bonus gift along with their first job.

It looks like(and I sincerely wish too !) that this year we shall achieve 100% placement. But even if that's not the case, some of your seniors have already proved that there is nothing to worry much about.

This great day I wish you could spare few moments to go through the following lines extracted from an interview of Shri J.R.D.Tata :

"nothing worthwhile is ever achieved without deep thought and hard work, ... that one must think for one self ... and never accept at their face value slogans and catch phrases to which unfortunately our people are too easily susceptible, .. that one must forever strive for excellence, ..or even perfection, in any task, ..no matter how small, .. and never be satisfied with the second best , .. that no success or achievement in material terms is worthwhile unless it serves the needs or interests of the country and its people,... and is achieved by fair and honest means, .."

Lets all pledge to dream BIG, and promise to put our souls in achieving our goals, .. Lets all pledge not to compromise with our dreams, .. as this kills the very meaning of our life, .. Lets pledge to look for solutions rather than problems, ..

Its no more than a few months of my experience as a software tester, but by now, I realize one thing for sure, .. "the greatest software tester is not the one who finds the maximum bugs, ... but the one who gets the maximum number of bugs solved, .."

Perhaps, the same applies to life !

Jai Hind !!
