While assuming the captaincy of this flagship college of DAV CMC, New Delhi, I am overwhelmed by holy feelings of reverence, awe and gratitude. As principal, heading this college offers a really big challenge as one has to match one's performance with the predecessors. Let us pick the challenge together. Let us together carve a new niche. Friends, we are passing though great changes as the entire academic paradigm is shifting. Moving in gear with time, we have to grow at the speed of thought to register even the eye-blink changes . With the world talking of sky-colleges, of digital pathshalas, of Net Universities, of knowledge economy and of mobile learning, there is a need to jack up competency levels to international standards. Let us carry out the transformation and change without disturbing the continuum in tradition. Further moving in synch with time, we must empower and strengthen our traditional courses with IT and its mega reach. The college offers you an exceptional breadth of academic choices which are up-to-date, and are directly relevant to the needs of industry, commerce and public sector. Traditional method of delivering information are increasingly being superseded by digital technology. I wish all of you think big and the latest. I ensure you that the college you are joining will offer you industry-relevant and market-sensitive program in Print, Electronic and Web Media, in Biotechnology, in Bio-informatics, in Event Management, in Risk Management etc. We are taking every step to strengthen our supremacy in infrastructure, in academic programs, in placements and consultancy, even in culture and sports. Friends, we remember that the students are the biggest stake-holders in the entire scenario. I have great affection for modern go-getter and dotcom generation you belong to. We offer you a vast space of trust and support. We have to work with rare energy, clarity and focus to maintain and enrich the enviable academic legacy. I am sure when a vision begins to form everything changes. Let us together steer our academicship to safe harbors.
