Greetings to all ! At the very outset I, on behalf of all the members of Shri Khushal Das University, welcome you all to our university with ardent enthusiasm. Our university is fully dedicated to impart quality education to its students who are the most promising assets of our country. We do believe that every student is endowed with special individual quality and ability, and our duty is to nourish and shape them in positive and constructive manner for the betterment of human life and society at large. However, it does not matter what facility or opportunity we make available to our students, they would not be able to taste the nectar of success if they are not studious and hard-working. The student must study ; without proper methodical study no one can be successful in life. Today’s 21st century society is a knowledge based society and to keep pace with it one has to be a voracious reader. Our books are the store-house of knowledge. For the student, study should not be a burden and pain. Rather it should be their pleasure. Reading and serious study sharpens the intelligence of a person; it helps in honing one’s skill and mental faculty. Without study human intellect is no better than a lifeless entity. About 450 years ago Francis Bacon wrote-“Studies serve for delight, for ornament, and for ability”. Again, noted author and journalist Homen Borgohain, in his book Kitap Parhar Ananda, wrote that our intelligence and emotion can achieve higher degree of refinement and aesthetic as well as intellectual sheen if we build a regular reading habit. Face is the index of the mind. Regular study enriches the mind and the rich mind is reflected in the face of a person. A resourceful mind enlightens the face. Reading habit built at the early stage of life can be maintained all through the life.
With this I extend my best wishes to you all in your academic journey towards excellence, knowledge and wisdom.
