Shri Sharad Jaipuria, Chairman of Jaipuria Institutes of Management, in his message to the graduating students said “We too need corporations and managers who adhere to the triumvirate of Indian values: Satyam-(Truth), which is the ethical component of business; Shivam- (Welfare), which should be the economic objective of business; Sundaram- (Beauty), which should be aesthetical outlook for business: aesthetics here does not imply physical beauty but purity of ideas, morality in behavior. In the ultimate analysis what matters is whether truth prevails in the end and it has happened. He emphasized do not forget that the noble values of caring, sharing, service and sacrifice has kept our society away from dangers of extinction and made it energetic at all times. As inheritors of a society which mushroomed great values for life and a deep concern for human development, you should intensely pursue for further deepening and broadening your knowledge, learning to experience the power of collective team work, and always be guided by higher values that you believe in.
Dr. Pankaj Gupta Director General, Jaipuria Institutes of Management, in his message to the graduating students said “Life’s biggest battles don’t always go to faster or stronger man,… but the man who thinks he can.’ If you are sure about your success & dreams, it is definitely going to manifest, as per the Universal ‘Law of Attraction and Belief’. The clarity of your vision will decide how far you can go in your career. Your passion will determine the strides you will make and your world view will determine the route you may take to get to your destination. You will have to carve out your own chartered path to glory and you must create your own mandate for growth. Toughen up your body and soul, fuel your passion to excel and be prepared to walk through the stony path. Invest yourself in these 5 areas on a daily basis “SPICE” – Spiritual + Physical + Intellectual + Community + Emotional. Also, find time to relax, smile, do some random act of kindness, and above all be grateful for what you have got; always feel grateful to your parents, guru’s, your company, your bosses, your peers, your colleagues. So this feeling of gratefulness will get more and more bliss and happiness in your life. He wished the students very best in their professional endeavours.
