Speaking at the the 21st Convocation of the University here at KMC Greens on Wednesday Srinivas Prasad told the students, “Some of the basic values and beliefs that we have grown up with will come under attack. But never do compromise on the core values. Do what you love to do, but don’t forget to make a difference to people’s lives as you go along. This will set you on the right path to success,” Recalling his college days Prasad said “I hated Physics at one point of time and was one of the reasons for my failure in a mid-term exams. But it became my favourite subject later. So much so that I eventually became an electronics engineer. Then I wanted to complete my Post Graduation to pursue my dream of becoming a scientist. However, that didn’t happen. But later,I had to give it up to pursue a career. That was a conscious choice I made to pursue a career in the corporate world,” he added. Prof Parvadhavardhani Gopalakrishnan, Principal Welcomegroup Graduate School of Hotel Administration welcomed the gathering and Dr Poornima Baliga, Dean Kasturba Medical College, Manipal gave the overview of the University.
