“REMEMBER, YOUR WORK
MAY BE ONLY TO SWEEP A
RAILWAY CROSSING, BUT IT
IS YOUR DUTY TO KEEP IT SO
CLEAN THAT NO OTHER
CROSSING IN THE WORLD IS
AS CLEAN AS YOURS.”

“TO GIVE REAL SERVICE, YOU
MUST ADD SOMETHING
WHICH CANNOT BE BOUGHT
OR MEASURED WITH MONEY”

WORK HARDER WORK WITH EFFICIENCY. WORK IN A CO- OPERATIVE SPIRIT AND WORK WITH A TEAM SPIRIT. . WORK HARD.“TO MAKE OUR COUNTRY GREAT. SELF-SUPPORTING AND STRONG.

” .“ONE OF THE MAIN OBJECTS OF EDUCATION IS TO TRAIN THE RECIPIENT FOR THE BATTLE OF LIFE. THE GREATEST DRAWBACK IN EDUCATION IS THE OMISSION TO GIVE PRACTICAL TRAINING IN THE USE OF MACHINE TOOLS NEEDED FOR INDUSTRIALIZATION.

” . WE CANNOT HOPE TO SUCCEED IF WE CONTINUE TO WORK WITH ANTIQUATED TOOLS AND FOLLOW OLD FASHION BUSINESS METHODS.“REMEMBER THE RACE IS FOR THE SKILLED AND THE STRONG.

NO ONE PERSON CAN SHAPE THE LIFE OF ANOTHER. . YOUR SUCCESS AND HAPPINESS DEPENDS UPON YOUR OWN SELF.

“SUCCESS IN ANY PROFESSION OR TRADE IS DUE LARGELY TO THE CAPACITY INDIVIDUALITY. INTEGRITY. FORESIGHT. HARD WORK OF THE PERSON WHO UNDERTAKES IT AND IT DEPENDS ON MAN’S OWN EXERTIONS.” .

“NO ONE PERSON CAN SHAPE THE LIFE OF ANOTHER. . THINK FOR YOURSELF AND HAVE A PLAN OF LIFE. YOUR SUCCESS AND HAPPINESS DEPENDS UPON YOUR OWN SELF.

THE MAJORITY OF THE CITIZENS SHOULD BE EFFICIENT OF GOOD CHARACTER AND POSSESS A REASONABLY HIGH SENSE OF DUTY. .THE WAY TO BUILD A NATION IS TO BUILD A GOOD CITIZEN.

.HARD WORK PERFORMED IN A DISCIPLINED MANNER WILL IN MOST CASES KEEP THE WORKER FIT AND ALSO PROLONG HIS LIFE.

WELL EQUIPPED INDUSTRIES. TRAINED TECHNOLOGISTS AND SKILLED WORKMEN CONSTITUTED THE TRUE WEALTH OF THE NATION .EFFICIENT MANAGERS.

SKILL UNTRAINED. THE STANDARD OF LIVING WILL REMAIN LOW AND THE COUNTRY WILL CONTINUE TO BE POPULATED BY IGNORANT MASSES. . ACTIVITIES UNSTIMULATED.IF THE INTELLIGENCE OF OUR PEOPLE IS KEPT UNDEVELOPED.

NATION WIDE THINKING. . NATION WIDE PLANNING AND NATION WIDE ACTION ARE THE THREE GREAT ESSENTIALS TO PREVENT NATION WIDE CRISIS FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS TO STRUGGLE THROUGH.

SUCCESS IN LIFE MAY BE ATTRIBUTED TO RIGOROUS SELF DISCIPLINE. . REGULAR HABITS AND SYSTEMATIC WORK. PUNCTUALITY.

COURTESY TOWARDS FELLOW WORKERS AND SERVANTS ARE THE FOUR POINT PROGRAMME FOR THE NATIONAL RECONSTRUCTION OF INDIA.INCREASINGLY EFFICIENT WORK. PROGRESSIVELY HARDER WORK. . PERIODICALLY PLANNED AND DISCIPLINED WORK.

INCREASE PRODUCTION. RESTRICT IMPORT . KNOW THAT KNOWLEDGE IS POWER. CULTIVATE TEAM WORK. THINK IN TERMS OF NATION. MAINTAIN EFFICIENT STANDARDS ARE THE TEN COMMANDMENTS FOR THE EFFICIENCY OF THE CITIZENS. . PRACTICE SELF HELP. SUPPORT INDIAN INDUSTRIES. PRACTICE TEAM WORK.THINK AND ACT INSTITUTIONALLY.

. THE PEOPLE WOULD BE REAPING BENEFITS OF PLANNED DEVELOPMENT AND WELL SET IN ITS MARCH ON THE PATH OF PROGRESS AND PROSPERITY.UNEMPLOYMENT AND POVERTY WOULD BE CONSIDERABLY DIMINISHED.

“HARD WORK. DISCIPLINED HABITS. MODESTY.THE SECRET OF LONG LIFE AND HEALTH. IN LUXURY. CONTENTMENT AND CHEERFULNESS”. .

THROUGH MODERNISATION AND WORK ARE THE GOSPEL THAT SHOULD BE PREACHED AND PRACTICED. EASE-LOVING NATURE. APATHY AND SLACKNESS ARE THE CURSES.INCREASED EFFICIENCY. .

.ONE OF THE MAIN OBJECTS OF EDUCATION IS TO TRAIN THE RECIPIENT FOR THE BATTLE OF LIFE. THE GREATEST DRAW BACK IN EDUCATION IS THE OMISSION TO GIVE PRACTICAL TRAINING IN THE USE OF MACHINE TOOLS NEEDED FOR INDUSTRIALISATION.

EDUCATE. ORGANIZE” SHOULD BE OUR WATCH WORDS IF WE ARE TO QUICKER THE LIFE PULSE OF THE PEOPLE AND TRAIN THEM FOR A LARGER AND FULLER LIFE. “INVESTIGATE. .NO GREAT IMPROVEMENT CAN BE AFFECTED WITHOUT DEFINITE IDEALS AND ORGANIZATIONS.

PROMOTE AND ENCOURAGE DEVELOPMENT CHIEFLY IN EDUCATION. COMMENCE AND PUBLIC WORKS TO ENABLE THE PEOPLE TO WORK WELL. EARN WELL AND LIVE WELL. . RESOLVED TO PLAN.OBSERVING THE CONDITIONS. INDUSTRIES.

.FIVE YEAR PLANS HAVE COME TO BE POPULAR ON ACCOUNT OF THE KNOWN REVOLUTIONARY DEVELOPMENTS WHICH MAY ALSO REVISED AS CHANGES IN CIRCUMSTANCES NECESSITATE FROM YEAR TO YEAR.

PROGRESS IN EVERY COUNTRY DEPENDS MAINLY ON THE EDUCATION OF ITS PEOPLE. WITHOUT EDUCATION. WE ARE A NATION OF CHILDREN. .EDUCATION IS THE SOVERIGN REMEDY FOR ALL ECONOMIC ILLS.

“PLANNED ECONOMY FOR INDIA” WERE THE PUBLICATIONS MAINLY RESPONSIBLE TO MAKE THE PEOPLE OF INDIA PLAN CONSCIOUS. ‘RURAL INDUSTRIALISATION’.‘NATION BUILDING’. ‘RECONSTRUCTING INDIA’. .

‘PLAN YOUR WORK AND WORK YOUR PLAN’. ‘INDUSTRIALISE OR PERISH”. GOD HELP THOSE WHO HELP THEMSELVES. NOTE BOOKS AND PENCILS INSEPARABLE COMPANIONS ETC. . WERE THE GUIDING SLOGANS AND PRINCIPLES.GENIUS IS 10% INSPIRATION AND 90% PERSPIRATION. ALWAYS WORK HARD.

IMPROVE THE CONDITIONS OF THE COUNTRY SO AS TO MAKE IT ECONOMICALLY PROSPEROUS. INDUSTRIALLY SOUND AND EDUCATIONALLY WELL ADVANCED. SCIENTIFICALLY PROGRESSIVE. .

.NATIONAL PLANNING COMMISSION WILL USE ALL ITS POWERS TO ENSURE THAT COUNTRY IS GOING IN ECONOMIC STRENGTH AND NATIONAL EFFICIENCY FROM STAGE TO STAGE.

CHARACTER.EFFICIENCY. . COMFORTABLE LIVING AND LONGEVITY. PLANNED AND DISCIPLINED AND EFFICIENT WORK IN THE LONG RUN LEAD TO HIGH WORKING CAPACITY.

. AND THE PHILOSOPHY IN INDIA IS DIFFERENT. IT LACKS AMBITION AND HUSTLE.EVERY MAN WHO HAS BECOME GREAT OWES HIS ACHIEVEMENTS TO INCESSANT TOIL.

WE CANNOT HOPE TO SUCCEED IF WE CONTINUE TO WORK WITH ANTIQUATED TOOLS AND FOLLOW OLD FASHION BUSINESS METHODS. .REMEMBER THE RACE IS FOR THE SKILLED AND THE STRONG.

SUCCESS IN ANY PROFESSION OR TRADE IS DUE LARGELY TO THE CAPACITY INDIVIDUALITY. . HARD WORK OF THE PERSON WHO UNDERTAKES IT AND IT DEPENDS ON MAN’S OWN EXERTIONS. FORESIGHT. INTEGRITY.

.IF YOU BUY WHAT YOU DO NOT NEED. YOU WILL NEED WHAT YOU CANNOT BUY AND THEREFORE THE PERSON WHO SPENDS MORE THAN HE EARNS IS A FOOL.

. THINK FOR YOURSELF AND HAVE A PLAN OF LIFE. YOUR SUCCESS AND HAPPINESS DEPENDS UPON YOUR OWN SELF.NO ONE PERSON CAN SHAPE THE LIFE OF ANOTHER.

DO NOT AGREE TO DO ANY WORK UNLESS YOU ARE SURE YOU HAVE COURAGE TO DO IT. EVERY THING SHOULD BE DONE ON TIME. BUT WHEN YOU EXPECT A TASK. DO NOT EVER FAIL TO CARRY IT OUT. .

.IN EVOLVING A KEEN ECONOMIC ORGANIZATION FOR OUR INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT THERE SHOULD BE NEITHER TOO MUCH OF AUTOCRACY NOR TOO MUCH OF DEMOCRACY.

A PERSON WHO DID NOT LOOK AFTER HIMSELF BY KEEPING HIS DRESS NEAT COULD NOT BE EXPECTED TO BE EFFICIENT IN HIS DUTIES. . THEREFORE TO BE WELL DRESSED IS TO BE WELL DISCIPLINED.

THANK YOU .
