“Graduation is symbolically an occasion to receive a degree certificate, which signifies eligibility and qualification. However, education should not be confined to merely obtaining a degree for job eligibility. Instead, it should build character and capabilities to realise one’s potential and contribute to the community,” he said.

He highlighted the responsibility of students towards society, emphasising the importance of making the community inclusive and worth living for everyone, regardless of their community or nationality.

Further, he stressed that to be successful, one must inherit will, vision and commitment.
