Mangaluru, Oct 23: The 10th and 11th Graduation Day ceremony of Sahyadri College of Engineering and Management, Adyar, Mangaluru was held at Sahyadri College campus on Saturday, October 23. Raman Madhok, managing director of Kahani Design Works Pvt Ltd and Suyog Shetty, CEO of Niveus Solutions were the guests of honour.
Dr Manjappa Sarathi, director-R&D and Consultancy welcomed the gathering and also shared a glimpse of Sahyadri with its growth story since its inception. He expressed that this day will be one of the greatest days in the history of Sahyadri as we have both - the management professional and a technocrat felicitating the graduates.
While addressing the graduates, Suyog Shetty recalled the challenging situation during the last two years and how this pandemic has created opportunities at large especially for engineering graduates and congratulated them on graduating from such an esteemed institution like Sahyadri College. He urged the graduates to focus on three things during the early part of their career – Bring in clarity on what you want to achieve, once you figure it out, start working on it and finally, get the right experience on what you want to achieve.
Raman Madhok spoke to the graduates giving reference to his 40 years of experience. He said, "Like we have a large number of people to pick us up, there are equal numbers of people to pull us down, hence the Mantra - 'Design the life you love'." He stressed on being creative by referring to a Venn Diagram of wants and needs circle and the intersection of that is creativity. Before you go to sleep, introspect on what you have done and how many lives you have touched. Question the things – 'What if?' and attack the continuously changing landscape of the ecosystem around you. In his concluding remarks, he encouraged the graduates to seek advice, request feedback and ask for help in order to succeed. Sahyadri has equipped the students with their engineering degree, however it’s their own attitude that makes them contribute to the world.
