Ignited Minds

By Dr.APJ Abdul Kalam

Message to students

My message to you is through this famous quotation –

“I’ve travelled the world twice over,

met the famous saints and sinners,

poets and artists, kings and queens,

old stars and hopeful beginners.

I’ve been where no one’s been before,

learnt secrets from writers and cooks

all with one library ticket

to wonderful world of books”.

So, what are you waiting for? You are blessed with one of the best libraries in the country. So make maximum use of it. Happy Reading!
