“The only person you are destined to become is the person you decide to be”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson
What we think is what we become. Everything lies inside us, the answers to all the mysteries, to every dilemma that we have faced in the course of our lives. All we need is someone to open our minds and make us realise the powers that one possesses. The students of BIT Sindri witnessed such a golden opportunity through a “Placement talk by K.K. Sinha- The current CEO and Director of ESSAR ports”. The event was organised by the Training and Placement Cell of the institute and was held in Dr K.P. Singh memorial hall. The session commenced with a welcome note from Dr. Ghanshyam Rai, TPO and Dean-alumni affairs. Dr. Ghanshyam in his welcome note thanked Mr K.K. Sinha for taking out time from his busy schedule and visiting the college. Citing Mr Sinha’s example he said, “A man has the power to become anything he wants, he must have the will to take a step forward in that direction”.
These motivational words were followed by the chief guest Mr K.K. Sinha’s address to the audience. Mr Sinha, an alumnus of FMS(Faculty of Management Studies) Delhi grabbed the undivided attention of every soul in the hall from the moment he started speaking. Talking about his love for interaction with students, he said that it not only energizes him but also opens up his mind regarding new ideas. He asked the students to gain knowledge from every source possible and to explore as many diverse fields and areas of the professional world as they can. Next, he focussed on the idea of teamwork. Quoting the lines “None of us is as smart as all of us”, he said that teamwork plays a very important role in the development of an organisation and to boost our professional career we must have the qualities and values of a team player. His words surely made a deep impact on the minds of the budding technocrats.
Honourable Director, Dr D.K. Singh also addressed the students. He asked the students to follow their passion and strive to leave their mark on society. He quoted the example of Azim Premji and asked the students to take inspiration from his life. Focusing on the importance of mentors he said that everyone must choose a good mentor and follow them diligently. At the end of the session, he forwarded thanks to the dignitaries present and congratulated the TAP members and Dr Ghanshyam for the successful organisation and management of this event.
