Prof Ranjan Bose, Director IIIT-Delhi, delivered a motivational address to the graduating students and presented the Director’s Report for the year 2022-23. Encouraging the graduands he said, “Choose the path that excites you, challenges your intellectual capabilities, harnesses your talents and engages your mind most productively. What makes you unique is the spark that you carry within. Remember, the line between ‘what is possible’ and ‘not possible’ is for you to draw, not for others to define. However, don't confuse success with excellence, which should be your primary focus.”
