Felicitation:Former Chief Electoral Officer Naresh Gupta handing over prize to a student at National College in the city.
TIRUCHI: Truth and non-violence which are the powerful arms of Gandhian philosophy are superior to any other weapon, observed Naresh Gupta, former Chief Electoral Officer.
Speaking at the college day celebrations at National College here on Saturday, Mr. Naresh Gupta appealed to students to understand the ethics of Gandhian philosophy.
Through a power-point presentation, Mr. Gupta said these were two weapons with which Gandhiji was able to win the struggle for our country's freedom.
These weapons set Gandhiji apart from other leaders, including Hitler, he said. The power point presentation commenced with a quote from the late American President Abraham Lincoln, on the role of a government for, of and by the people.
Mr. Gupta appreciated the efforts taken by the college management for imparting quality education to the students belonging to the economically weaker sections. He specifically lauded the achievements by M. Aishwarya, an undergraduate student who had won gold medal in Kata Category in Kung-fu at national level. “She had won 21 gold medals and 11 silver medals, which is not a mean achievement,” he observed.
K. Raghunathan, secretary, said that the college which was started with humble beginnings in 1919, now accounted for a total strength of 3,000 students.
Plans for starting job-oriented courses during the forthcoming academic year were under active consideration. K. Anbarasu, Principal, presented an annual report.
Later, Mr. Naresh Gupta distributed prizes to rank-holders and those who won in various competitions.
He also honoured teaching and non-teaching staff members in recognition of their prolonged service at the college.
