He believed in youth and the youth power and each one of YOU, emphasised the Governor.
He gave reference to Adi Shankaracharya, who had strung together the country with the thread of unity. He spoke of the sacrifices of Guru Gobind Singh Ji’s sons, and countless youths like Sardar Bhagat Singh, Chandrashekhar Azad and Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose who made the supreme sacrifice, for the country.
The Governor also highlighted Honorable PM’s Panch Pran that would help India guide the world as it reached its 100th year of independence. He concluded with a message to the youth on sustainability, and on the benefits of our New Education Policy that is set to change the way India and Indians learn. He appealed to everyone to take home some aspects of the ideologies, philosophies and thoughts spoken today, so they can partake in the revolution and transformation that is India.
He applauded the efforts of the NCC and of the GCTC for organising such a brilliant event and ended with a quote that left everyone in the audience with motivation. “You have to grow from inside out. None can teach you. None can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul.” Believe it, said Governor Lt Gen Gurmit Singh (Retd.)
