Welcome my dear friends. Welcome to the College of Science and Technology. It is indeed great pleasure for me to see all young and energetic fresh ladies and gentlemen walking to and fro. Welcome once again.
I want to share something that is relevant and you should know being a fresher in the college. Let me declare myself that I am not responsible to bluff or responsible person to let you know which sometimes you may think, ‘it is mere rubbish and I know how to act’.
I know almost every high school friends these days dream of coming to CST. Courses offered are more or less same as what you want to pursue through government scholarships pertaining to technical trainings and studies. Moreover job market is good as compared to graduates from outside country. It is indeed the place where you can sigh for the hard work that you have put in.
Many of you have come here out of necessity and few out of luxury. Every parent wants to see his/her son/daughter become either engineer or doctor. For the under privilege parent like me, it was my necessity to get admit here and support my parents and long chain relatives. And for those well-off, it is their luxury to become an engineer. My dear friends get inspire you and motivate to become good engineers.
When I was in first year, our previous director was worried for when College of Science and Technology (CST) is said to turn out to be the College of Sever Tension (CST). It was like virus among students and it goes viral to those coming as first year and I know you are aware of it. Getting in nineties and eighties or seventies in high school and expecting the same isn’t possible. Impossible because it is technical. I don’t mean someone should be genius like Einstein rather it is your logical power to get work done and be an exigent student and I know you all were toppers in school. Everything counts for hard work. You have a mountain to climb up.
I know many of you have already chosen the narrow conduit, ‘what to do’. It is always great to know beforehand, what you are going to do. It is truth in itself to get enlighten yourself, what you are going to do and what you are going to be. Now you have come out from the narrow conduit and it is for you that you need to again get in the sharp conduit of ‘how to do’. Every possible and expected guidance and care will be given. The way which you need to go will be vividly shown adorn with the exigent character that you should not forget to nurture. It is in your hand as to how to manage you.
You can’t expect the next four years to be like the last two years in your high school. Everyone is treated as an adult. No one will come forcing you to do what needs to be done for your own goodness. It is you that you are adult that need to be careful to maintain the journey and fuel accordingly. It will be your own dignity that needs to raise your head held high to justify that the college life is golden life. It is your own responsibility to get transform from and lazy sluggish caterpillar to a beautiful and lovable butterfly. And hope that transformation will be each and everyone’s definition to consider college life as Golden Life.
Anywhere you go and dwell, there are assured rules and regulations that you need to abide by. The difference and privilege of seniority will be there. It is your stupidity if you can’t align to the norms of what is expected by universal. No senior will rag you neither scold you for nothing. It is their duty to remind you if you step away from your desired manner. Don’t feel bad instead except it as good and you should not forget that your turn will come to do the same as perceptive senior.
So, lastly, where the knowledge is free; where the seniors aren't dominance; where you will learn to attain the ultimate joy of golden college life as caterpillars and worship to fly away as beautiful butterfly, I once more welcome you to the College of Science and Technology.
Thank you!! Be happy!!
