Good Evening/Afternoon everybody!
I am extremely honoured to have the chance to address you in this prestigious moment when our institution, VC Kumaran Memorial School celebrates its 33rd Annual Day today. This is so precious moment for us because aside from the fact this function underlines our school’s successful back-to-back 33 years in its realm of imparting education, this dais is also going to witness the showcasing of talents of the young-buds of this school and the prize giving ceremony to the best students in various spheres.
It is always a pleasure to be able to address young minds. Children are our tomorrow - our future. Bright faces that I see here today receiving prizes and evincing their talents will be the citizens of tomorrow. They may tomorrow grow up to be Einsteins, Rabindra Naths, Gandhis, Abdul Kalams & Kishore Kumars or they may just turn out to be a burden on the society, stragglers in the race of life waiting for someone to give them a job. What our children are going to be in future is what we make of them. The talents they demonstrate here are the proof that they have the potentiality to be the useful citizens of the future. The duty which is conferred up on me here is to welcome everyone to this grand celebration. Our chief guest this year, is such a philanthropist who doesn’t need a formal introduction at all. He is the chairman of Kidney Federation of India, a promising organization/foundation which promotes donating internal organs after your death. The most important fact is that he proved himself as an epitome for others to follow, by donating his-own kidney. I consider it is not only my privilege but the honour for our entire school to host him as a dignitary and the inaugurator of our priceless function today. I cordially welcome Fr. Davis Chirammel to the celebration.
Next, I would like to welcome our “Guest speaker” today. Being the member of District Consumer Protection Council, he has given a lot...
