He emphasized the immense potential of education as a catalyst for positive change, not only for individuals but for society and the world.
Governor Purohit reminded the audience of India’s rich tradition of valuing knowledge, calling for a revival of the country’s legacy as a global hub of education, once known as Vishwaguru. He also stressed the pivotal role of technical education in the nation’s development, ensuring human resource development, enhanced industrial productivity, and an improved quality of life.
Purohit assured his unwavering support for MRSPTU in providing quality technical education and nurturing employable professionals. He acknowledged pressing global challenges in food security, water conservation, clean energy, and climate change, advocating for science and technology’s role in addressing these issues.
The Governor encouraged academic research, skill development excellence, and fostering entrepreneurship through collaborations with industry partners. He emphasized the importance of turning inventions into real-world solutions.
Governor Purohit highlighted the significance of giving back to society, where scientists and engineers with integrity and social conscience can contribute significantly to the welfare of society.

Purohit reminded the students that they are not defined by their failures but empowered by them. Learning, he said, is a lifelong process, and individuals should never limit their potential due to self-imposed constraints.
In conclusion, Governor Purohit invoked the words of Mahatama Gandhi, Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru and Maha Kavi Subramania Bharati, encouraging students to excel in their careers, make their alma mater proud, and value their education with humility. He blessed the graduating students and looked forward to the bright future that belongs to them.
