The Chief Guest Shri. B Thiagarajan delivered the inaugural address.

In his address, Thiagarajan impressed upon the need for continuous learning, unlearning, and exploring the world through diverse people, places, and experiences. Through numerous quotes by renowned personalities and verses from the Holy Books, he stressed the importance of knowledge, faith, hope, and love. He reminisced on his own experiences and asked everyone to learn from one’s failures, develop a positive outlook that drives their actions, and work towards a brighter future. He urged everyone to dream big, invest their time responsibly, focus on the journey instead of the outcome, and acknowledged the pivotal role academic institutions play in shaping individuals. He concluded with a famous quote by Mahatma Gandhi, “Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”
