“Now you are all licensed to heal. I know it is a great moment in your life. Many people must have helped you to accomplish your dreams, especially your parents. Teachers are the second important persons in your life and they have helped you realise your dream of being doctors today. So graduation day is also a thanksgiving day on which students should remember their parents, teachers and all who helped them. From today there are responsibilities on your shoulders. There is no scope for mistake. The society will not accept your mistakes. Hence you need to be equipped and updated. You should keep changing as per the expectations of the society. Doctors should follow work ethics. Name, fame and money is not important. But if you follow your work ethics, these three things will come to you automatically. A doctor who is punctual always becomes successful doctor. Punctual doctors are good listeners and successful practitioners,” he added.
