Wishing you all with the words of Winston Churchill. “Never give in! Never give in! Never in anything great
or small; large or petty never give in – expect to conviction of honor and good luck”.
When Churchil pursed those famous lines many would have floated Doubts whether the word receive it with
right tone or not; but I thought of myself receiving those magical lines with care coupled with joy and jealous.
What powerful lines they are! No power-head other than Churchill would have given those words. The lines
deny themselves that are the mere assembled words of scrumptious and taste but the words, which made the
world, dance to the tune of their own. It is a war cry. A war cry for high esteems and de-limbo.
Resolute, Conviction, determination and trendd-setters will be some of the high-sounding, energetic and highvolt
vibrant words bestowed on if one goes through the valid leaves of dictionary for addressing present day
students’ community. But I feel more comfort in branding you all as Cinderellas preferably to the cheap
matchboxes. I would rather call you as atom bombs either. Yes..! But the atom bomb of damp-squib type; the
jumbos who often fail to identify their real personality and strength which they are supposed to do and willing
to reduce to the state of mere kitchen consultants. Who are you really? You are the shapers of the modern
society. What are you going to do for the welfare of your career first and the society at large next? Please fix
your destiny with convenient dialougue of composite experiences.
When I stepped into Shantiniketan of West Bengal the Literary King, The Bengal Lion Tagore’s vision
mesmerized me almost. I became mentally numb, if I find alright word to say. But that state of inertness led me
to draw few sketches for shaping a society of practical Utopian-model. Shantiniketan Women’s College was the
brainchild of this strong conviction.
Once Lord Krishna says, “Hei Arjuna! Among the Vedas I am The Sama; among the mountains I am The
Himalayas; among the rivers I am The Ganges and among the birds I am The Vulture!” At that time there was
no existence of Shantiniketan! Other wise he would have been made to declare, “Among the colleges I am
Shantiniketan Women’s College”.
Come on! Leave your name in the great good books of Shantiniketan. Let us work together and set a new
password to life and career.
