"An environment should be created in the universities for imparting value education. During my 40 year tenure, I faced many challenges. Having spent many years in the same field, I was able to study many things. Everyone should recognize their responsibility. Students should get into the habit of reading from now on. Along with the syllabus, extra reading should be developed. This will give you new ideas. Achieve your courage through teamwork. Set goals and objectives and strive to achieve them. If you give time to your activities, you will definitely get success. Punctuality is the key to success," he added.
