Mr. Ram Kumar mesmerized the audience with his Convocation speech on the topic of “Professionalism”. His words of wisdom were strong and compelling. Drawing instances from Indian mythology to narrating incidents from his personal life, he urged concept of ‘clarity’, ‘steadfastness’ as a pre-requisite for professional. To him, “knowledge which cannot be put at the altar of duty is of no value”. He invoked the spirit of perfectionism by linking it with a strong sense of duty and the urge to get a work done just because “it needs to be done”. His speech centered round the idea that professionals take ownership of their own work responsibility of what others do. Mr. Ram Kumar’s speech was awe-sticking and indeed immensely apt for the fresh graduates, all ready to take on the world of professionals.
