Speaking at the event, Th Kirankumar said that it is not a good attitude to let success or securing high marks get into one's head as it will not bode well for the future career.
Success and failures are a part of life and the most important thing is to try and overcome all the failures to improve oneself, he added.
The Education Director then recommended the students to refrain from pursuing any subjects which they are not fond of just due to pressure. One can only succeed in life if one chooses their own path that they love and are guided by the right teachers, he said.
Kirankumar further said that medical and engineering are great courses and there is no harm in pursuing theses paths if one desires to do so.
However, there is nothing wrong in pursuing other filed if one has no interest in these two fields and this is better than just falling prey to peer pressure, he added.
