Dhanyaraj, third Year ECE, introduced the chief guest.
Shri.CA.N.V.Natarajan, the Chairman, Paavai Institutions presided over the programme.
The chief guest in his keynote address stated that the ambience of the institutions is very pleasant. When even metropolitan cities, for instance Chennai, are not aware of celebrating such a wonderful programme like Engineer's day, the institutions of Paavai had come forward to conduct Engineer's day which was really remarkable and appreciable. Engineers are going to plan the future of India. 65% of the population of India are youth and this youth will even decide the future of the world. Engineering can be put into four sectors, namely, Information Technology, Manufacturing, Aeronautical and Construction. Information Technology sector is growing very fast by having its hub at Bangalore. Even, IT-enabled services like, Call Center is being setup in India, and the educated youth are being employed. Manufacturing sector is the backbone of India and this sector is also performing well. The 100th satellite launch is a clear evidence for India's development in aeronautical engineering. The sky-scrapping buildings, bridges and the architectural growth are booming in India. All the four sectors are performing so excellently that India has a great and bright future.
He also added that in the olden days people worked against nature. For instance, a dam was constructed but the people were ignorant of the consequences caused by the act in other areas. But nowadays, all the sectors go along with nature in order to ensure safety, security and satisfaction. He said that there are three I's namely Individual, Industry, and Institution. Industries put forth their requirements, and the institutions are ready to give hands-on training, hard and soft skills to the individuals. Therefore it is the responsibility of every individual to learn and make himself fit for the requirements of the industry. There is a popular saying that when we break an egg we kill it but if a youngling breaks the shell and comes out, it is called creation. Hence, the individuals have to come out of their hard bound shells to emerge as desirable human beings contributing to the welfare of the institution, the society, the nation and the universe.
