Prof. Sadagopan, in his speech, said that he considered all the students from LAQSH lucky as they represent the bright future of India and he sees it with high hopes. He appealed to the students with the words “Look at what you are leaving behind - an India that is equal to or much better than the India you were born into.” He also described the pivotal role IT is playing in India bridging the gap of Indian developing economy with the developed economy of west.
Prof. Sadagopan also recommended the students to read Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam’s book India 2020 – A Vision for the New Millennium.
