Speech by the President of India, Shri Pranab Mukherjee at the first convocation of the Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Kashipur

Speech by the President of India, Shri Pranab Mukherjee at the first convocation of the Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Kashipur

1. It is indeed a pleasant and privileged occasion for me to join you on the occasion of the first Convocation of the Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Kashipur, which was founded three years back. As the first batch of 37 Post Graduate Programme students complete their management degree course today, the Institute should pride itself on crossing a major milestone since its inception.

2. I congratulate the management and faculty whose undivided attention and profound dedication towards nursing this Institute in its nascent stage has been crucial for the management programmes to commence and gain momentum. I am very happy that IIM Lucknow played the role of a mentoring institution and I compliment the team from IIM Lucknow which was involved in the setting up of IIM Kashipur. As the youngest of IIMs, IIM Kashipur should strive to build a unique image for itself, while maintaining the high quality that IIMs are known for.

3. I am happy to know that IIM Kashipur is considering the setting up two Centres of Excellence, on Sustainable Development and on Competitiveness. I am sure these Centres will stimulate new thinking, research and practice in their focus area.

4. Many have felt the need for a renewed focus by our management institutions towards courses on entrepreneurship. At a time when IIM Kashipur is consolidating its course structure, it should leverage this opportunity and design management programmes in a manner that will become a model for others to follow.

5. The unique geography of your Institute’s location, in an industrial belt surrendered by a predominantly rural area, provides you the opportunity to develop ‘extension education’ courses. Students should be encouraged as part of their academic curriculum to contribute to positive social development by helping people of the region learn better ways of running their farms, small businesses and other community ventures. This will instill in the students a sense of obligation to society, which they carry with them throughout their professional lives.

6. I am confident of your Institute becoming a premier source for highly trained managers, a catalyst of entrepreneurship, and a resource hub for socio-economic development.

7. Friends, we need a strategy to make the Indian Industry compete successfully with the best in the world. Skilled manpower has to play a key role in this strategy. A healthy growth of Indian business will be greatly facilitated by the availability of a competent cadre of management professionals.

8. The pool of such professionals in our country is unfortunately not enough to meet the needs of our industry. The annual enrolment in commerce and management streams has increased from around 23 lakh in 2006-07 to around 34 lakh in 2011-12. The need for graduates and post-graduates from these streams will be much higher in the future and we must be ready to meet the demand.

9. Friends, according to an international ranking of universities, no Indian university figures among the top 200 universities of the world. Our efforts must be aimed at taking Indian universities into the top-league. Innovation is also an important driver for growth. Unfortunately, we also lag behind our major competitors in this aspect. The number of patent applications filed in India in 2011 was about 42,000, which is far below the 5 lakh plus applications in both China and the US. A culture of innovation must be encouraged in our country and for that, we must create more opportunities for collaborative research, set up industry incubation parks in educational institutions and provide more research fellowships.

10. Friends, technology-based learning has great potential to increase the reach of education on the one hand and deepen the learning experience of students on the other. Benefit to students would accrue from knowledge and information sharing enabled by collaboration with other institutes through e-classrooms.

11. I am confident IIM Kashipur will be in the forefront of management education in the country. I have every confidence in your commitment and devotion and your ability to deliver quality management education.

12. India today stands at the cusp of greatness- while there are many challenges ahead, there are also boundless opportunities. We are passing through a phase of unprecedented demographic change which is likely to contribute to a substantially increased labour force. The bulk of this increase is likely to take place in the relatively younger age group of 20-35 years which would make India one of the youngest nations in the world. In 2020, the average Indian will be only 29 years old as compared to an average age of 37 for China and the US, 45 for West Europe and 48 for Japan. It is clear that the youth of India, who are the leaders of tomorrow, shall aspire for higher standards of living, better service delivery and increased transparency and accountability.

13. For India’s political and economic stability, it is important that we have truly “inclusive” growth - growth that benefits each and every citizen of the country especially those who are at the margins of society and at the base of the socio-economic pyramid. The challenges being large and diverse, India needs grass-root leaders who place people and their problems at the centre of the social, economic and political discourse. It is only when we work together and each Indian feels empowered to contribute to the task of nation building that we shall be able to combat poverty, malnutrition, hunger and disease. I call upon the faculty and students of IIM Kashipur to focus on the problems of the bottom of the pyramid and develop innovative solutions to address their concerns.

14. On the eve of India’s 66th Independence Day on August 14th last year, I had observed that the glass of modern India is more than half-full. I had said that we are equal children before our mother; and India asks each one of us, in whatever role we play in the complex drama of nation building, to do our duty with integrity, commitment and unflinching loyalty to the values enshrined in our Constitution. If each of us follows this principle, I am confident that India will become a more vibrant, dynamic and prosperous nation.

15. Dear students, the role played by alumni in the growth of leading universities across the world is well acknowledged. Alumni are active participants in the affairs of top universities in the US including Harvard. I hope that the students, who are passing out of this Institute today, and the others to follow in the future, will associate with their alma mater and contribute to its development in a meaningful and significant way.

16. As you step into the professional world, you must remember that the potential for learning is never exhausted. Education is a life-long process. I hope that your studies here would have inspired you to seek knowledge at every stage in your career. I wish you good luck in your endeavours and the management and faculty of IIM Kashipur every success in the years to come.
Thank you.
Jai Hind!

"التفكير وتنمو ريتش؛" قرأت، وتريد كتاب آخر واكتب جداً!!
"معلومات للثروة التقدم!!.".

هو أحد الأسباب النقدية اكتب موقفك أكد في بيانكم تحفيز... "الرجل كسب المال". الرئيس السابق لأمريكا السيد وودرو ويلسون هو مكتوب في الصفحة-15؛ … "إذا كنت قد ثبطت.. جمع الأموال للحرب!! (* نابليون هيل (26 أكتوبر 1883 – 8 نوفمبر 1970) كان مؤلف أمريكية في مجال حركة الفكر الجديد الذي كان أحد منتجي أقرب من النوع الحديث من الأدب النجاح الشخصي. أنه يعتبر على نطاق واسع واحداً من الكتاب العظيم على النجاح. " باهتمام نادر... "أنه أصبح مستشارا للرئيس فرانكلين د. روزفلت من 1933 إلى 1936." كل، "في دراسته على الفقراء؛ في حاجة إليها؛ كتب تفاصيل مذهلة بما في ذلك هذه فقدت عبارة: "أي شخص يمكن أن ترغب للثروات، والقيام بمعظم الناس، ولكن فقط خطة محددة، بالإضافة إلى الرغبة الشديدة للثروة، وهي وسائل يمكن الاعتماد عليها فقط لتراكم الثروة." في مزيد من الاهتمام هو تعيين بيان أكثر انفتاحاً "البنتاجون من الولايات المتحدة الأمريكية": بالسيد هيل: "كل عدو، خداع والديمقراطية الرئيسي"!! السابق كان أونديرستودي وحيدا ولا تكساس!!

فما ينقص الكتاب تحفيز السابق هو "الروح الألمانية الأمريكية" الحقيقية!! وإليك موقفا أفضل!!

9. لإزالة "الأسرة الكاثوليكية"؛ مرة أخرى؛ للإشاعات البابا!
10. إلى الكذب وحرق العلم أي أمة فقيرة وقد يؤدي إلى المدني "معلقة".

I thank you for forwarding your concern to my apartment here in Capital Alberta and feel free to visit me again Ms First Lady Obama!!

The Social Insurance Number or in America the Social Identity Card makes a hard Democracy! As per your gracious lend for interest on People, allow these words to enhance Your Statement: "Faith is a chemist in the Brain...." by the renowned Mr. Napolean Hill!!

The Manhattan born American stated: ..."opportunity for the Person Capable of helping Men and Women ... yields RICHES$$!!

That's Birth AMERICAN$$!!

The reason a Identity or a Insurance Card is important is for voting a stable Government! The former President Mr. Lyndon B. Johnson; approved ... "Negro employment ... in American industry and Government ...."

The reason was social security!

In, Canada; Revenue Canada shields their passage from immigrants without a proper Social Insurance Number.

The Major reason was lost IDENTITY!!

The Diefenbaker Government lost not time to rule out any phony then too!! Hence; in the name of AMERICA; a rare book from South Carolina; Capitol istic America hone the land. The reason is to accumulate great fortunes.

In, the last Days of another Great President: "Times of trouble multiply. Many are wounded; and many, are lonely. The best days are kept for mother and President Residing, near.

The loves of Our Marriage; will "open" Our Hearts; and bring all care loving People to War for Our Land -- GREAT!!

The bribe. According to “Bribery is an act of giving money or gift giving that alters the behavior of the recipient. Bribery constitutes a crime and is defined by Black's Law Dictionary as the offering, giving, receiving, or soliciting of any item of value to influence the actions of an official or other person in charge of a public or legal duty.” The English Act states “The offering, giving, receiving, or soliciting of something of value for the purpose of influencing the action of an official in thedischarge of his or her public or legal duties.”

Bribe is defined better here: by the brush of Funk & Wagnalls Standard Desk “any gift or emolument used to corruptly to influence a person.”

According to “Police corruption is a form of police misconduct in which law enforcement officers seek personal gain, such as money or career advancement, through the abuse of power, for example by accepting bribes in exchange for not pursuing, or selectively pursuing, an investigation or arrest;” per;

· U.S. Attorney’s OfficeJuly 20, 2012

· Northern District of Georgia(404) 581-6000

Jury Convicts Former DeKalb Police Lieutenant for Bribery
Willie Daren Durrett Accepted Thousands of Dollars in Bribes in Exchange for Performing Official Police Actions

Modern witness states “ federal jury convicted a former officer with the DeKalb County Police Department, Willie Daren Durrett, on federal charges of accepting bribes from a local businessman and conspiring with former DeKalb County Deputy Chief of Police Donald Frank to accept bribes.”

If and according to … “While accepting thousands of dollars in bribes, Durrett served as a sergeant with the DeKalb County Police Department and later as a lieutenant; per; … “Durrett served as a sergeant with the DeKalb County Police Department and later as a lieutenant; A “screw” is a loser. Now let’s scoop the real meaning of a shanghai of how a man is persecuted of being an American? Sensualists sequence power of communism. According to the same Registered America definition In United States if America; the police officer is near a Captain or Lieutenant or not with Scotland Yard as Sergeant Major. Only here in the Marines the Corporation will not allow Canadian Sergeant at Arms!

Now the Bribe; is “Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Duffey received a B.A. from Drake University in 1973 and a J.D. from the University of South Carolina Law School in 1977. He was a Private practice from 1977 to 1978, and was an assistant staff judge advocate, U.S. Air Force from 1978 to 1981. He was in private practice in Atlanta, Georgia from 1981 to 2001. He was a deputy and associate independent counsel,;” per the;” was he a negro?

Was as per a Georgian Caucasian “Nominated By: President George W. Bush

(Republican Republican);” hiring a Democrat from Boston and really African? The bribe is some times met skin don’t mix well!!
