At IIT-Madras, Tata calls for undivided India

Mr Ratan N. Tata has urged the student community to form an India undivided by communal lines. In his convocation address at the IIT-Madras, he said, “We should work hard to build a land of equal opportunity. We need to make our country as one India, which cannot be broken on communal lines.”
1,269 students were awarded degrees at the IIT-M’s 43rd convocation.

Urging students to develop India, the chairman of Tata sons called upon them to be proud of their Nation and not be complacent. “I urge you to think big, think about something which is impossible to achieve,” he said.
Advising graduates to have a sense of responsibility, Mr. Tata said, “We should help society with what we have learnt at this premier institution.” He said India must invest in fields like nano technology. Referring to the IIT-M’s initiative to build a research park, Mr. Tata said, “The research park that IIT-M is developing is what the country needs. We need more such parks. Research facilities are where students turn ideas into products.”
Mr. Tata was conferred the doctor of science (honoris causa) by the IIT.
