The Chief Guest in his address stressed on real education, which is not about getting jobs but about living life to the fullest adding that education is a continuous process which brings about positive transformation in our lives. He pointed out that formal education came to us with the advent of Christianity and it therefore very much appropriate that our educational function should be based on the principles of Christianity which teaches us about love and concern which in turn brings about unity.
