She asked the first year student what two words will represent your learning experience in the college, and one answered, Thank you. She said this contains all what one wants to say.  The second year student answered, Don’t Stop and the third year students said, ‘Love You, Goodbye’. She was very impressed with their responses and shared a story with them. A college girl returned home sad and told her father that she is always having problems and she is fed up with the college. The father took her to kitchen and kept three pots with water on fire. On boiling, into one he put egg, into another a potato and into the third one, coffee. AFter sometime, he asked the girl to take out the items put in the water. she took out a hardened egg, a softened potato and she could not take the coffee out. It has turned the water into wonderful aromatic coffee. And she said, our life is like that, we need to get educated and transform our environment into something better and wholesome.
