Odisha CM called upon the students of Shailabala Women’s College not to compromise on their dreams to settle for smaller things

Cuttack:25/3/23: Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik on Saturday called upon the students of Shailabala Women’s College not to compromise on their dreams to settle for smaller things.

“As students, you must have your dreams for your own life. I would suggest, never ever compromise on your dreams to settle for smaller things”, the Chief Minister advised while inaugurating the 400-seated hostel of the College on the occasion of the birth anniversary of Shailabala Das, one of the most revered women leaders of the state.

Addressing the students, the CM said, “In an era, when women were in a deeply marginalized condition, Shailabal Das, the daughter of Utkal Gourav Madhusudan Das, was in the forefront of a mass movement for women’s socio-cultural and educational upliftment and empowerment.”

The vision of our legendary leaders for the women of our state is now taking shape. Women are now leading every sector of the socio-economic aspects, the CM said.

“From education to research, from sports to art & culture, and from science and technology to trade, commerce and industries, women are pioneering a new era for themselves. I believe, the 21st Century will be the century of women”, he said.

The CM said, “As students, you must have your dreams for your own life. I would suggest, never ever compromise on your dreams to settle for smaller things. You have immense potential; you have all the abilities to change your own life, and can change the future of our Nation. Dream big in life, and do all the hard work to realize your aspirations in life”.

The State Government is committed to the development of this institution. A 400-seated hostel with an expenditure of Rs 10 crore was inaugurated for the students, and foundation for a multi storied building, with a projected cost of Rs 35 crore for administrative and academic purposes has also been laid.

“We will do all that is required for making this heritage institution one of the most glorious institutions of the country”, the CM said.
