IIM Sambalpur, one of the premier management institutions in the country, hosted its 6th and 7th Annual Convocation Ceremony. Another academic year of the institution has been successfully concluded with the 6th (2020-22) and 7th (2021-23) Annual Convocation.
While congratulating the graduating students, his Excellency, Shri Prof. Ganeshi Lal, Governor of Odisha said, “The awakening of position, this word is similarly also called, so this is also unreal. So in the awakening state and in the green light, both the things appear to be unreal. The managing director and the manager, you have to manage. So this is the way, this unreality should be transformed into a reality. And that is why, when we thirst, we dream less sleep. When you sleep, you think that you have enjoyed, that is, you enjoyed and you are happy, then it is a celebration. Who gets the joy? For that it is self -restraint. That is the love which unjoins you. Therefore as far as the managing of the things is concerned, in my observation, you note, in my observation, you should note, in the observation of the sages, sages and the sages of the world, of the scientists and the philosophers of the world, the simple management is nothing else other than love itself. Love is the essence that dissolves all matter and even mind and consciousness. Marriage and worldly responsibilities are opportunities to manage love. Material wealth pales in comparison to the vastness of love. Love is beyond complaints, competition and contradictions. It is a symbol of simplicity, humility, inspiration and generosity. Attention and exchange are needed to cultivate love's power in our minds.”
