From Chairman's Desk

Dear Student

Any action or commitment of ours must be linked to a tangible incentive and reward as it further provides motivation to do still better. Some sort of reward is always attached for giving our best at all times. We normally appreciate that a positive input can yield a gratifying output but we may face challenges and at times dejections. Awards sometimes are awe-inspiringly immediate and at other times it is a test of patience. We cannot determine and we do not have much say in what form this reward will take.

It often happens that the things we did with minimal planning and hardwork go on to enrich us more than investments of time and efforts that were deliberate and meticulouslydone. As human beings our endeavor should always be to give our best in whatever we do because such efforts of ours will channelise all our skills and capabilities. This applies to all whethera worker, a student, a manager, a businessman and a leader. Rewards are always on the way for a good work done sooner or later.
