Mysuru, December 9, 2019: A programme to celebrate the 12th Graduates’ Day was held at the JSS College Arts, Commerce and Science, Ooty Road, Mysuru, on December 9, 2019, in the Golden Jubilee Hall of the college, in the divine presence of His Holiness Paramapujya Jagadaguru Sri Shivarathri Deshikendra Mahaswamiji.
Speaking on the occasion, Dr. S. Ayyappan, Chancellor, Central Agricultural University, Imphal, Manipur, guided the fresh graduates on the innovative modes for the future generation. He opined that fresh graduates should involve themselves in new nano-technologies use of energy in all fields of life, including agriculture. He felt that Peri-urban agriculture should be used to retain the original character of the agricultural produces. “The JSS institution is in the forefront in making use of these technologies with multidisciplinary education system”, he said.
He also explained how agricultural produces can be improved using new innovative technologies. Students, especially passing out graduates should use their skills to have an action plan for new things, avenues available, using start-ups and be aware of patents. At the same time, he was disappointed at the research ratio per million population which is very low in India compared to other countries.
He concluded his speech with a note of aspiration hoping that the year 2020 will be a new milestone in all respects, as the future depends on what we do in present. The research should be based on giving solutions rather than creating problems he felt.
