At DPU, give your best to whatever you are doing in life and do not waver from the determined path. It will be difficult no doubt but try to focus and be in control of your mind. Speaking about the mind, let me refer to the second chapter of the Bhagwad Gita. In one of the shlokas, it says, “Let your concern be with action alone, and never with the fruits of action. Do not let the results of action be your motive, and do not be attached to inaction. “No doubt, you will have to surmount many difficulties and face many defeats in life, but never let yourselves be defeated in your quest for knowledge and in search of a new life and achieving your goals.
Before I conclude, I want to express that I feel a tremendous sense of excitement and anticipation as we embark on this journey together. Best wishes for the work I know you will do to make this wonderful institution even better.
All the best,
Dr. P. D. Patil
