Media Release

Mangalore, Mar 29: 'Epitome-2K12', the IT fest organized by the IT section of AIMIT, St Aloysius College (Autonomous), was inaugurated by Dr Ravichandran, CEO, Glotouch Technologies, here on Thursday March 29.

Looking at the recent developments at St Aloysius College, especially the AIMIT campus at Beeri, he said, “It is unbelievable that such a place exists in Mangalore - a place on par with any foreign universities with breathtaking beauty and ambience for studies”.

He complemented Fr Denzil Lobo , the architect of the new campus for his initiative and perseverance to create best environment for IT and management studies. As a sequel to his speech he told the august gathering of youth from all over the country, not to be greedy but try and offer the best to the business they join.

He further said, "We are lucky that many foreign countries are coming to India for BPO and other IT related jobs since we have excellent human resource.

The argument that women dinikrng in a pub after they turn 18 is against Indian Culture is specious in the extreme. What is really against Indian Culture is the fact that women can be beaten up by hooligans who are probably both illiterate and uneducated.
