Be an icon of yourselves and never imitate others:Governor of Odisha Ganeshi Lal

Bhubaneswar:11/11/18: “Don’t fall into the trap of material goddesses of ignorance, illusion, corruption, conspiracy and diplomacy. Be an icon of yourselves and never imitate others,” said  Governor of Odisha Ganeshi Lal while addressing graduating students of Kalinga Institute of Information Technology (Deemed to be University) during its 14th convocation on Saturday.

“Every country of the world is striving for economic supremacy. You are going to face a world divided by the lines of religion, regions, colour, languages, etc. and the biggest challenge before you is to vanquish these divisions,” he said.

Even when in their chosen careers, they should not forget to smile, be kind and find peace in the laps of nature, he advised.

“India is not only a country with her land, rivers, mountains and habitations, but for Indians, she is much beyond these things – she is the divine Goddess. Odisha is the state for humanity at large. Founder of KIIT, KISS, Achyuta Samanta, is an example of the same,” he added.
