“Whenever in history youth has come together, they have created and rewritten the history itself. The usage of technology to invent innovative solutions will become a norm for success. Technology can be a real rescue in difficult and challenging times. So, both technology and youth have immense potential for India,” Singh said.
“Graduation day is not the end of learning rather it has just begun and will continue throughout. Hence, it is important to learn new lessons and skills in order to survive and succeed in the corporate world. Critical thinking is one of the most sought-after attributes in the corporate world. Tackling problems with an open and objective mind helps in finding the best solutions to combat them,” he added.
