Former Governor of the Reserve Bank of India, Raghuram Rajan, on Saturday urged students to test themselves and know who they are, because only challenges make them stronger and more resilient. At the convocation of the city-based Krea University here, he said that students should give back to society because it is the land that has cherished them and giving back has been a privilege of fulfillment.
“I am often asked for career advice and would like to leave you with three thoughts: know yourself, challenge yourself and take others with you. Learn who you are, what really excites you and what really excites you,” Rajan said here at the Krea University convocation. “Challenge yourself – when things are easy, you don’t grow. You don’t know who you really are. Find something that puts you to the test. (Thirdly), take others with you. You owe it to the society you are in grown up, the country has cherished you,” he said.
“Giving back (to society) is not a chore, but a privilege, a source of fulfillment that we must also seek,” he said. He noted that the graduates who pass out today deserve a special mention, saying that the traditions the students have created are embedded in the culture of the university.

“In many ways, your graduation from Krea University is proof that dreams really do come true, because half a decade ago Krea itself was a dream of a few individuals who shared their dream with many others,” said the former RBI governor.
Forbes Marshall Co-Chairman Naushad Forbes, addressing the students virtually, said: “As young graduates, you are ideally placed to provide the leadership to meet the challenges – addressing key economic challenges of employment by promoting employment that generates things like tourism and manufacturing at the heart of our growth story, so we are involving all 1.4 billion people in our progress.” Krea University Vice Chancellor Professor S Sivakumar said the university has been envisioned from the outset as an effort to make a unique contribution to teaching and research.
“Our first convocation ceremony on July 2, 2022 will celebrate the success of our company. It represents the culmination of the efforts of students, faculty and staff who have worked tirelessly with dedication and focus despite the pandemic years,” he said. Students have successfully gained access to prestigious universities, placements with reputable companies, and opportunities to partner with non-governmental organizations. These achievements reflect the quality of education and the value they receive at Krea University, he added.
