"To become smart and simple human resources relevant in present times of competition, we need not only bookish knowledge but sports and co-curricular activities. Let every student go to the playground in the morning and evening for keeping fit and mentally healthy with discipline," said Professor MM Goel, Vice-Chancellor, while delivering welcome address.
