Graduation Speech / Guest Vietnam & Maldives
Good Morning Everyone!
It is an immense pleasure in being here on the invitation of Prof. Tao. This morning is very special one for me as I was blessed to smell the air of 3 countries in hours, and obviously the controlled air in 1 country.
Everyone gets a degree, what makes you proud and captivated is the question of the hour. All that is required at the end of this proogramme which is never mentioned in the curriculum is that “Human Network”. This network should be well maintained and watered throughout the life even while crossing the difficult steps.
I thought of sharing a couple of incidents which made really to feel that this network is extremely powerful and vitally potential. This year in the month of February, I had to undergo a very tough political situation even though I am not a politician, I was a cheesecake for a game. When that situation aroused, it was my first such turbulent situation. Those few hours of survival were tough and I haven’t experienced such. When my fellow people came to know about this, they called everyone they could, they left all the sensitive government works and were taking care of my personal health, my diet and everything inch to inch, or to be more specific cm to cm my movements were supported. And I was pampered like 3 month infant by numerous people. Although they weren’t around me at the spot, the phones were ringing like a call center to check every minute. It was the day when I have really understood the value of network. Those few hours of my life were like something which are highly unexplainable with few words.
Still, I was highly happy to see and learn the list of people who are connected with me in the right intention and other group because of my growth. I made a firm and hard decision of discarding the second group of people, I am quite successful on that in this 10-month span. All the relationships have a toxic people too, it is your job to identify them and discard them without any second thoughts.
This degree will make your parents prouder than anything else in their life, dedicate this for them atleast on a whole. That would be the worthier dedication you can do in your life.
With this, am concluding my speech to make more space for the Universitians.
All the Best!
