Study for the cause of society and self-satisfaction – Prof. G. Hemanthkumar

Mysuru, February 29, 2020: “None of the knowledge branches becomes perfect on its own. Its outcome will be good only when it establishes contact with other knowledge branches.

Hemanthkumar, Vice-Chancellor, University of Mysore.

He presided over the four-day Frontier Lecture Series, under the UGC sponsored programme for Enrichment of Teachers under the CPE Scheme, held at the JSS College of Arts, Commerce and Science, Ooty Road, Mysuru. “Lecturers should not take up studies keeping in mind only teaching or research. When you inculcate a habit of studying regularly you will come to know about new issues and other knowledge branches. It helps you to clearly understand your teaching aim and different ways of teaching.

In his valedictory address, Dr. L. Jawahar, Vice-Chancellor, JSS Science and Technological University said, “There are no boundaries for knowledge. You can gain knowledge from any source, and there is no limit to it. You should not limit your urge for studies to just one subject, instead, you should try to gain knowledge about different subjects. Doctors should also know about the economical conditions of our country. Knowledge means not just reading, it’s an experience. You should work with the society and understand the problems of the people. A genuine study or research should find a solution to the problems of the people. But unfortunately today the aim of education has lost its objective, it has failed in instilling human values. In this context, I wish to let your studies and research activities be based on serving society.”

Chief guest Dr. S. Srikantaiah, Director, College Development Committee, University of Mysore, in his address said, “Advancement of science has multiplied its capacity, and it is changing according to our ways of living.

Though there are several definitions of social justice, equality is its main aim. As per the directions of the United Nations, every year February 20 is being observed as the ‘World Social Justice Day’, since 2009,” he explained.

Just graduation is not enough, you need skills – Prof. Umesh

Kollegal, February 19, 2020: “Today possessing just a degree is not enough. You need skills. Only a candidate who possesses skills will excel in work,” opined Prof. Umesh, Principal, JSS Women’s College, Kollegal.

He addressed the students after inaugurating a lecture programme on the topic “Digital Library and it’s forms”, organised by the Library and Information Centre, of the JSS Women’s College, Kollegal.

“Today competitive exams have become like rat races. Though students appear to be very talented and meritorious while studying they find it very difficult to face competitive exams. Lack of skills is the main reason for this. To achieve success in competitive exams, you need accuracy, swiftness, discipline, and skills. You can achieve success through proper preparation and constant hard work. The library helps you in this regard. Hence, the students should make proper use of it,” he added.

Sri Srinivas, Librarian, JSS Women’s College, in his address explained that competition exists in every sector. “However intelligent you are without proper preparation it is very difficult to find success. There are lots of job opportunities in our country, but suitable candidates are not available. You should select your profession when you are studying itself. In case if you do not decide it during your studies or college days your student life itself will be a waste. The process of preparation is like flowing water. It always keeps changing. You can find solutions to a lot of your educational problems in a modern library set up,” he said.

Sri Mahesh P., Economics lecturer was present on the dais.
