Dr. Acharya proposed a success mantra for students, a mantra comprising 5 significant Ds: Desire, Decision, Determination, Discipline and Divine intervention. These 5 Ds must be complemented by Emotional Intelligence. He described Emotional Intelligence as the ability to empathize with people and modify one's behaviour, accordingly. Emotional Intelligence is the cornerstone of success. Being an excellent listener and inspiring people are the trademarks of Emotional Intelligence, and this is what any organisation looks for, in a person. Dr. Acharya also outlined the qualities of a great teacher, saying that a great teacher is someone who enjoys teaching, cares about his/her students, and encourages them.

After Dr. Acharya enlightened the audience with his words of wisdom, Dr. M. J. Mohan, Guest of Honour, began his talk. Dr. M. J. Mohan elaborated on how the legacy that was created by their father Dr. M. V. Jayaraman is being fostered and upheld, not only by his children, but by every person who is involved with the MVJ Group of Institutions. He commended Shri M. J. Balachander, Chairman – MVJ College of Engineering, for making their father’s dream of establishing a Medical (or Engineering?) College, come true.

The afternoon session of the Founder’s Day celebration commenced at 02:45 pm. The Guest Speaker for the afternoon session was Sri Swami Sukhabodhanandha, a renowned spiritual master, an erudite motivational speaker, a vedic scholar and Spiritual Scientist with the moniker ‘Corporate Guru’. His core aim is to bring about transformation in every individual through clarity and understanding, rather than through irrational faith and blind following.

Swamiji spoke on how knowledge should not make us heavy in the head but should be used to inspire ourselves. He reiterated that one should be positive and optimistic and understand that if one door of opportunity closes, another opens.

Swamiji was honoured with a Ponnaadai and memento as a token of our gratitude and respect.
