Mangalore, Mar 13: Father Muller Charitable Institutions celebrated its Institutions’ Day and graduation ceremony on Wednesday March 13 at Father Muller grounds.

The programme began with a procession by the graduates and the dignitaries, followed by the college band from the Medical College “B” Block.

Dr H S Ballal, pro-chancellor, Manipal University, was the chief guest. Deputy commissioner N Prakash was the guest of honour. The event was presided over by Dr Aloysius Paul D’Souza, Bishop of Mangalore Diocese and president of FMCI.

The graduation ceremony and the oath-taking of the School and College of Nursing, Homeopathic Medical College, College of Speech and Hearing, Allied Health Science Courses, FMMC, and the Medical College were carried out by Dr H S Ballal and N Prakash.

Dr Anjali K P, a graduate, spoke on behalf of all the 564 graduates. Awards and prizes were also presented on the occasion by the dignitaries.

In his address, Dr Ballal said, “Education is the best gift that parents can give to their children. The convocation is remembered by the parents more than the students. About 65 percent of the population in our country is below the age of 35 and nearly 25 to 30 percent are in the higher education level. The access to higher education in our nation is considerably low and stands at  nearly 13.5 to 14 percent.”

“The administration has set a target to make that level reach 30 percent by 2030. But the government alone can’t make this happen. Public-private partnership is the best that can be done to achieve it,” he added.

“Learning is a continuous process. Keep updated about the advancements in technology and trends in your particular fields. It is said that population explosion is the main reason for poverty in our country. But our country is very much rich, provided all are educated. Be pro active and see to it that our country is progressing. In the next 20 years, our country will be at its highest peak in terms of developments,” said Dr Ballal.

“There are five fundamentals of learning—learning to know, learning to do, learning to be, learning to live together, and learning to transform oneself and the society. There is no short cut to success, but its only hard work that can help achieve it,” he opined.

N Prakash thanked the parents for their contribution towards their children in pursuing their education. “The medical profession is a noble and sacred profession. This field helps you to pursue it till the last breath. Be a good listener. This field needs better listening than any other because mishandling of lives will prove very costly. Patients have to be the first priority for  doctors,” he said.

Fr Patrick Rodrigues, director, FMCI, Fr Denis D’Sa, administrator, FMMC, Fr Richard Coelho, administrator, FMMCH, Fr Prakash D’Souza, administrator, FMHMC, Fr Rudolph Ravi D’Sa, administrator FMCI, Dr J P Alva, Dean, FMMC, Dr Srinath Rao, principal, FMHMC, Jasmine Vas, principal, FMSN, Sr Winnifred D’Souza, principal, FMCN, Akhilesh P M, principal, FMCSH, and others were present on the occasion.

    Congratulations to all medical professionals and you are tomorrow's pain-relievers and life-savers.

    As said, there is no substitute to acquiring education and a parent's big investment is his educated children.

    I wish all young graduates good luck and a bright future.
