Eco­nomic progress of a coun­try was not pos­si­ble with­out knowl­edge and skill de­vel­op­ment of its peo­ple, said Ra­machan­dra N. Galla, chair­man of Amara Raja Group of Com­pa­nies, while de­liv­er­ing the grad­u­a­tion cer­e­mony ad­dress at Thi­a­gara­jar Col­lege of Engi­neer­ing (TCE) here on Sun­day. Mr. Galla said that a study of any de­vel­oped coun­try or civil­i­sa­tion in the his­tory would re­veal that de­vel­op­ment was based on ad­vance­ment in knowl­edge. Point­ing out that In­dia had one of the youngest work­forces in the world, Mr. Galla stressed the need for a large num­ber of ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions for dis­sem­i­nat­ing knowl­edge to younger gen­er­a­tion. “Ev­ery child is in­tel­li­gent. The need is to pro­vide the right op­por­tu­nity and en­vi­ron­ment for learn­ing to all the chil­dren,” he said. Mr. Galla also heaped praises on the TCE for giv­ing im­por­tance to qual­ity and ethics at a time when “many of the ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions are run purely on a com­mer­cial ba­sis”. De­liv­er­ing the pres­i­den­tial ad­dress, chair­man and cor­re­spon­dent of the TCE Karu­muttu T. Kan­nan urged the stu­dents to do self-ex­am­i­na­tion to iden­tify the fac­tors that could help in dif­fer­en­ti­at­ing them­selves from oth­ers. “The world is more com­pet­i­tive than it was 2-3 years back. The com­pa­nies that re­cruit you are go­ing to de­mand greater skills and re­spon­si­bil­i­ties,” Mr. Kan­nan told the grad­u­at­ing stu­dents. Mr. Kan­nan also stressed the im­por­tance of con­tin­u­ous pur­suit of knowl­edge which was in­evitable for achiev­ing growth in their ca­reer. Ear­lier, V. Ab­haiku­mar, Prin­ci­pal, wel­comed the dig­ni­taries. Of­fi­cials from the col­lege said that 1,141 stu­dents who had grad­u­ated from var­i­ous streams of un­der­grad­u­a­tion and post­grad­u­a­tion cour­ses were awarded de­grees dur­ing the func­tion.

“Asia bet­ter po­si­tioned to take lead in an­tenna tech­nolo­gies”

Asian coun­tries were bet­ter po­si­tioned to take the lead in an­tenna tech­nolo­gies in fu­ture ow­ing to the con­ducive en­vi­ron­ment avail­able for re­search and de­vel­op­ment in com­mu­ni­ca­tion and wire­less tech­nolo­gies, said KinLu Wong, Pro­fes­sor from Na­tional Sun Yat-sen Univer­sity in Tai­wan, while inau­gu­rat­ing the In­dian An­tenna Week 2016 ( IAW 2016) here on Mon­day. In his ad­dress, Mr. Wong also stressed the need for re­search in an­tenna tech­nolo­gies to cope with
