Rector's Messages

"The education which does not help the common mass of people to equip themselves for the struggle for life, which does not bring out strength of character, a spirit of philanthropy, and the courage of a lion - is it worth of the name? Real education is that which enables one to stand on one's own legs." - Swami Vivekananda
