The convener Sh. Mohinder Singh, Principal, KV School, Bathinda highlighted the importance of Swami Vivekananda’s philosophy for the use of human society. Dr. Ravichandran presented Swami Vivekananda’s quotes that guide our life :

  • Our decision shape our life. You can’t learn anything by doing nothing. Let us realize that our life is like a Sine curve with lots of ups and downs just like your ECG. The moment your ECG is a straight line, you are dead. It is the same in the case of our life also.
  • Attitude is the most important word in English and it is very important in our Life. It is a one-word solution for all our problems.
  • If you do not believe in Almighty, it is all right but have faith/self-confidence in yourself.
  • The power of focus in whatever you are doing is the only mantra to get success.
  • Always have high ambition in life. The difference between an ordinary and extraordinary person lies in the degree of ambition.
  • Have courage and move forward.
  • Expansion is the driving force in life. 
  • Take up one idea in your mind. Keep thinking always. One day it comes true.
  • If there is any land on this earth to be the blessed Punya Bhumi; if there is any land on this earth to be the blessed Dharma Bhumi; if there is any land on this earth to be the blessed Karma Bhumi; if there is any land on this earth to be the blessed Dhiyaga Bhumi, it is our Mother India.

The faculty expressed his sincere gratitude to the Lovely Professional University, Dr. Vijay Kumar Singh (HOS – SME), Dr. Mukesh Kumar (Head – Department of Physics), and Prof. Ashish Kumar (COD, Department of Chemistry) for their encouragement, blessings, and constant support.
