The most memorable day in a cadet’s life is his graduation day, technically said, passing out Parade With degrees in hand and dreams in eyes, the cadets step out into the new world of reality which is parallel opposite to his world in his college. At this threshold to the new world, hopeful and pragmatic motivation and inspiration from a veteran of the industry, act as a boost to them. An impressive 13th Graduation Day Function was held at R.L. Institute of Nautical Sciences on June 27, 2015.
After the invocation and lighting of kuthuvillakku,
Mr Chandrasekar, Vice Principal, welcomed the gathering.
Then Mr M Subramanian, Principal, RLINS introduced the eminent personality Shri K Shankar, President(Shipping Division) India Cements.
Shri K.Shankar President (shipping division) India cements indicated a hopeful sign of increased job opportunities to competent marine cadets. All that it takes to consistently improve one’s skills to be competent with the latest technologies. His message was as clear as daylight: plenty of marine jobs await competent cadets. In his inspiring address to the passing out cadets of B.S Marine Engineering & Graduate Marine Engineering, There are three categories of crew onboard ship: High knowledge and high passion, low knowledge and high passion, high knowledge and low passion. When recruiting a cadet we want him/her to be of low knowledge and high passion as they are very curious to work and gain knowledge from their seniors. He also remarked that Dr. R. Lakshmipathy, the President of RLINS, a visionary in his approach has explained to him many a time, about the infrastructural facilities of RLINS. But the reality exceeds and excels his remarks. RLINS with its excellent infrastructure, able Principal supported by dedicated team of faculty and non-teaching staff can produce competent cadets for the Indian Maritime Industry.
After the vote of thanks by Capt Vivek Scudder, Senior faculty and Cadet Captain Mr. Acharya the function came to an end.
