SRI RAMACHANDRA UNIVERSITY
From the Editor’s Desk
Beloved Readers,

“Be the change that you wish to see in the world,” said Gandhi. October saw the 144 th
birthday of this great Indian luminary who showed the world tolerance to all kinds of
people. Let us too do what we can to make our country a better place to live in.

Fall in love with the process of what you do & stay focused and the results will take care
of themselves, reveals ‘Happiness is’. Many events in the campus urge the need of being
mentally healthy in addition to physical strength. What better way to get inspired than
remembering Gandhi who is known for his mental strength and could remain focused
at the task at hand. Do not lose your joyous moments in trying to prove yourself to the
world, says ‘Your Corner’.

The festival of lights that illuminate our homes and hearts is round the corner. The light
empowers us to commit ourselves to good deeds and brings us closer to divinity.

Wishing all our readers a safe & joyous Diwali !!
Let us stay connected…
Sheela Ravinder. S.
