The department of English congratulates you for being the future citizens of the largest democracy in the world, as the nation celebrates its 62nd Independence Day.
Let us remind you that the freedom you breathe today had been the dream of millions of Indians who fought for it. We are extremely happy to join you to commemorate the heroism and patriotism of our freedom fighters on whose sacrifice we enjoy this unlimited glory of independence. We take this opportunity to remind you that the future of our nation rests on your shoulders and wish you the best to take up the responsibility successfully.
However, let us remind you that the world around is marching ahead faster than we imagine and the value of independence is slowly evolving to a higher value called interdependence. No individual, society, culture or nation exists in isolation today. The success of any individual or nation lies in its ability to collaborate and work together with other individuals and nations for creating opportunities and wealth. The message we want to give you on this occasion is the message of “interdependence.”
We also recognize our role as educators and our responsibility to make a difference in the lives we touch. We are convinced that the world of unlimited opportunities and wealth requires an interface for individuals and nations to come together and collaborate to unlock the hidden value. Fortunately, the global interface for collaboration is the English language. The department of English pledges its commitment to make a difference in your lives by empowering you with the ability to communicate successfully in English.
