SRIKAKULAM: Students should focus on their goals by taking part in activities like Yoga, meditation and exercise to rejuvenate their physical and mental energies, said GL Datta, former vice-chancellor of KL University. He stressed that marks were not parameters to achieve great things in life and one should always be part of something which is amazing. He said that college education is a gateway to experience the world and before selecting a career, students should experiment and have experience in their selected fields.

Datta was addressing the second Graduation Day celebrations organised by GMR Institute of Technology (GMRIT) at Rajam in Srikakulam district Saturday. As the best practice under autonomy, the GMRIT has come up with a new tradition of conducting Graduation Day every year.

On the occasion, students were awarded certificates of course completion, and gold and silver medals for best academic performances of the batch 2010-14. GMRIT principal CLVRSV Prasad conveyed his best wishes to all the graduates and added that learning is a continuous process and students should utilise digital media, a rich source of information, properly.

GMR Varalakshmi Foundation director of education Nagendra Parashar said that students should be good human beings and everyone should contribute something to the society. Convener Veerendra Biswal and other faculty members were present.
