He further added that the students should be appreciative of the fact that they are a part of an institution like MCM that has a special aroma of ethos, ethics, culture, and values. He also advised the students to be grateful to their parents for their sacrifices and untiring efforts, and to the teachers- the priests of knowledge for guiding them on their path to success. In his motivational address, Sh. Gandhar urged the students to develop in themselves the qualities of compassion, confidence, determination, perseverance, tolerance, focus and much more for carving a niche for themselves. Prayers to the holy fire amidst chanting of shlokas and mantras soaked the atmosphere in divinity.
