Take everything as a learning exercise and make a difference, says Ratan Tata


Mr. Ratan Naval Tata, Chairman Emeritus of Tata Sons visited SRM University recently and exhorted young students to take every exercise as learning during their student life and early jobs. The veteran business leader asked the students to work towards making difference in peoples’ life.

Mr. Tata was interacting with the students of SRM University on January 27, 2016.

“Take everything as a learning exercise,” the industrial and business magnate advised the student community.  Mr. Tata also told students that there are many qualities that are sought after in young leaders but the bottom line must be one of making a difference. “As you go through life, many things you could not find in college, you will find it in your profession down the line,” shared the Chairman Emeritus. He also advised the students to be honest in what they think and do.

Mr. Tata told the young minds that along with team work, timing, plan and innovation, there has to be intuition for any program to succeed; but cautioned the students that “not every plan or venture is going to succeed.”

Mr. Ratan Tata said that if India is to shine now and in the future, people must have the freedom to decide and while governments can be in the business of monitoring, they should have no role in telling people what to do. “If India should shine let the people have the freedom to decide,” said Mr. Tata to the SRM University students.

He also shared his insights on challenges and opportunities of higher education in India. Referring to the fact that so many young minds of India choose overseas destinations for higher studies, Mr. Tata observed that this would not be the case if educational institutions offered proper facilities and faculties. Prior to the interactive session with students drawn from all Faculties of SRM University—Engineering and Technology, Science and Humanities, Medical and Dental Sciences, Health Sciences, Management and Law, Mr. Tata met with the Founder Chancellor of SRM University, Dr. Paari Vendhar where they discussed the challenges and opportunities of higher education in India.
