It seems only a few years ago that we were excited about entering the new millennium. We are now drawing towards the close of its second decade. It is time for us to reassess our goals and aspirations and align them such that we are geared to prepare for newer challenges.
Like it or not, technology and the digital world is here to stay. Some of us who reached adulthood in the last two decades of the 20th century are ‘migrants’ to this new world. We may also be termed as ‘digital nomads’ who have moved into this fray not by accident but by choice. Just as nomads move from region to region in search of greener pastures, so also we must embrace the technology revolution with open arms to enhance our lives.
‘If you are not willing to learn, no one can help you If you are determined to learn, no one can stop you’
In contrast, you, our students who belong to the millennial generation, are ‘technology native’ or ‘global citizens’’ with an inherent digital aptitude. The challenge for you is to use the technology judiciously. Enslave it by putting it to use, to suit your needs, to grow and excel. Do not become a slave to technology by allowing it to dictate your lives. Each one of you is blessed with latent talent and should channelize all your energy towards realizing their fullest potential. Technology can help you to create a symbiotic relationship with the world while over-dependence on technology can lead to self-destruction. There is really no substitute for the human brain, effort and perseverance. A right balance between the human brain and technology will ensure that you are on the path to success.
To conclude: ‘There may be people who have more talent than you, but there’s no excuse for anyone to work harder than you do’. We, at MCC will rejoice in the success that will come your way through your effort and perseverance. Here’s wishing all of you the very best in all academic and extra-curricular activities in college and all your professional endeavors!!
