KBG’s Abracadabra titled “After a day’s lazing or hard work, let us relax !” (SOM dated Feb.28) made a good reading. His observation that when you do work which you enjoy you don’t feel any fatigue, is very true. It is a source of immense job satisfaction.
In this connection, I may mention that late Sir M. Visvesvaraya touched upon this aspect while delivering the convocation address of the University of Mysore on 25th October,1948. His advice to graduates in the matter contained in the convocation address is reproduced below:
“I have lived a rather long life, and the graduates who have taken the degrees might ask me what advice I have to give for their guidance from my own personal experience. My answer would be this: if you lead an active life and your employment happens to be congenial to your temperament, work will keep you fit. I have had plenty of interesting work as an Engineer. Engineering is a dynamic art, as it has developed very rapidly and is a fascinating field to work in. It helps me to acquire business skill and put forth continuous effort to do more and to do better.”
