Neiba advised the students that while technology has greatly revolutionized our lives and has made the world a global village, one has to be careful that technology does not control them.

Azo reminded the students that it was imperative that they remain focused on their actual purpose to ensure that they do not regret in future.
He went on to advice the students that while a degree was important, in the advanced and populated world of the present times, leading the art of survival has become more important than getting a degree and this can be achieved only when a person has confidence, believes in God Almighty, and trusts in God’s plan.
He urged the students to learn the art of swimming before getting drowned and to learn the art of fishing rather than buy fish everyday with their parent’s money.
