VM Thomas with a Bouquet of Flowers and Fulam Gamocha, while the students sang a song of welcome.

In his interaction with the staff and students he said, “You are what you think. All that you are coming from your thought, and with your thought you create your world. What you visualize, what you imagine with your mind, is what you realize.

He added, “You see a beautiful tea garden very close to you. Yet plants and trees are determined by the environment as they cannot move.  But animals are different from the plants. They are not determined by the environment as they can do something different from trees and plants. They can search for food, shelter, and can defend themselves. They are also able to adapt themselves to the environment. What about human beings. They can control, change and create environment. Often people do opposite of creating; they do reacting. We need to stop reacting to every situation, and give positive energy to every situation.

This College, he said, is a dream come true, a dream that was also part of my vision.  And the growth of the college in 3 years coming to over 300 students doing honors course, is wonderful indeed. I visualize that in near future, 2000 vibrant youth will throng this campus.

I really wish to propose from DBTECH most advanced programs for job Placement. We are looking at programs like Tally courses and Artificial Intelligence. We need courses on artificial intelligence enabling you to manage machines and provide data analysis. So these new courses will provide skills needed for today’s world. That is also my concern, helping you to get ready for the market and provide you with necessary skills.

I am happy to associate with you to bring some resources to help you to move ahead faster. God has made the birds but he does not provide food for them in the nest. However, they do not die of starvation, because they search for food and live. I will help you to Network with the corporate and societies beginning with Oil India, to get some funds and resources.  
To get results we need Faith, Prayer, believe in oneself and hard work. These together will bring success.
