The safety, honour and welfare of your country come first, always and every time. The honour, welfare, and comfort of the men you command come next. Your own ease, comfort and safety come last, always and every time. These were the finely crafted words of pledge every officer and soldier take before he wears the uniform of commitment to serve the country.

On this Independence Day, let us salute the sacrifices of our brave soldiers who have dedicated their lives to uphold the honour and integrity of our nation. Their unstinted commitment and selfless service inspire us to strive for a better tomorrow. May our country continue to march towards progress and prosperity. 

May I take this opportunity on this golden day to reach out to our students to stand tall and feel proud of our mother nation. Each day is a canvas waiting for your strokes of brilliance. Embrace challenges as opportunities for growth, exploit the given opportunity in overcoming obstacles alongside discovering your potential. Remember, success is not a destination, but a continuous pursuit fuelled by passion and perseverance.

Jai Hind! Vande Mataram!
