“Education is the only weapon in our hands that can change the world for the better and value-based education is the need of the hour to take India to newer heights”. This was stated by Governor Punjab Banwarilal Purohit while distributing the degrees to as many as 1626 students during the 116th Annual Convocation of historic Khalsa College here today.
Delivering his well-applauded convocational address, Governor Prohit said the world is full of struggles and only those properly equipped with education can face the challenges and emerge winners in life. He said this historical college not only provides the degree to the students but even the courage and confidence to stand against odds of times.
Encouraging the students for hard work and adopting the simple ways of living, he said there was no short cut to success and each milestone can be achieved only through dedication, determination and perseverance. “As you obtain the degree, which is a reward of several years of your hard work, do not forget to thank all those who have been a part of this phase of your life”, he asked the students saying the life without principle is nothing and values and spiritual ways of life make it more meaningful.
Governor Prohit was earlier extended a warm welcome on the heritage campus by Khalsa College Governing Council (KCGC) President Satyajit Singh Majithia, honourary secretary Rajinder Mohan Singh Chhina and Principal Dr.Mehal Singh. He further stated that the degree is not an end goal in itself but instead a part of the larger journey of life as a new phase of life begins. He inspired the students to follow the path of righteousness and to maintain the values which their elders have imbibed in them.
While praising the role of the College, he said, the historic institution has contributed immensely in making the students aware of their culture, history, language and traditions.

He inspired the students to make targets and focus on those targets as the students for attaining degrees and medals.
