Questioned Shri A Rajarajan, Director of Satish Dhawan Space Centre SHAR, ISRO, Sriharikota to an enthusiastic crowd of 5000 students who had come to receive their medals, ranks, and degrees at the 15th Annual Convocation at SRM Institute of Science & Technology, Kattankulathur on 10 November 2019. The chief guest for the event added that hard work and dedication would yield better results. “Remember your parents, teachers, and all those who have played a role in your life. The process of traversing from college life to the outer world will be different and difficult. The value systems that you learn from your institution is what will help you overcome these situations.”

He also urged students not to give up on their dreams. “If India has to become the best country in the world, it needs all-round development and the primary focus is education. SRM has been contributing massively in this endeavor.”He added, “It is important to have ambitions in life. And this comes only through performance. So unless you translate your thinking into action, these are not possible. The Government does not tell ISRO what it has to do. We just have ambitious projects and scientists who make things happen. Similarly, you should never expect someone to tell you what to do.”In a lighter vein, he asked students to spend their time wisely. “When the sun comes up, you should be ready to run in order to survive in this world.”He then presented medals and ranks to 113 candidates from the Faculty of Engineering and Technology and 90 students received their Ph.D. degrees.

We should soon shift our focus to alternative energy as our natural resources are depleting.”
