From The Principal's Desk

  • Nothing is as difficult as beginning, according to the English poet Byron, yet everything has to start somewhere. No matter how small the beginning, mighty things can grow from it. For this, I believe, earnest effort is needed from every single individual and unit. We are all tiny cogs in a giant machine, but each part is vitally important. If one cog stops functioning, the whole machinery comes to standstill. As the saying goes every hand to the plough.

    There are one or two points I would like to emphasize particularly. Transparency in everything we do, in dealing with anyone, with whom we come in contact, must be a major aim. We owe it to the society around us. It is expected of us. Another duty we have is to help those young people with ability to reach the highest potential they are capable of. There will be many with lesser talents who also need our earnest attention, and we must give it to them.

    In conclusion I would like to add that I have a firm conviction that if we continue in the same vein as we are , we will be able to take this great institution of ours to greater heights, so that it retains its rightful position as one of the premiere institutes of learning in Maharashtra and our Country. Let us therefore all think of the future as a promised land , which we all must strive to reach.
