Principal's Message

Prof. Mrs. P. V. Bodhak
Principal, ADPPC

In this 21st century, the education scenario is changing by leaps and bounds. Experimentation seems to dominate the zone of the education leading to uniformisation and internalization of the educational system. The situation is such that true education has taken aback seat under the guise of globalization and liberalization. The ills of education seem to outweigh the good of education with the decline in the standards of the entire system of education.

The present times, marked by a chaotic situation, cut - throat competition and insensitivity towards others, demand rethinking on how best education can contribute for a peaceful coexistence of all. No one can deny the pivotal role education has to play in this century to bring about the much desired catharsis of our society plagued by violence, hatred, anger, frustration, lawlessness and uncaring feeling for others. Regrettably, today, there is a paradigm shift in the whole process of education. What was once upon a time considered as a vocation or a mission, today the entire focus is to meet the demand of labour in the market, without giving due attention to the character and spirit formation of the individuals.

As understood rightly, teaching is not just transmitting knowledge but, more importantly, forming and transforming young people. Ability to inspire and motivate them is demanded of every educator. Empowerment of students for their all-round development through education is ourCherished motto. Today education means much more than merely acquiring knowledge. It is acquisition of knowledge and skills, building character and improving employability of our young talent, the future leadership. I am sure, being stars and their painstakingly and gainfully developed our Culture, we inherited a strong foundation to march ahead and achieve the within mentioned education objectives for a stronger and brighter India. Measures initiated by the Hon. Management, steps taken by the college administration, the willing contribution of the teaching and non-teaching staff and over whelming response and enthusiastic participation of my dear students in the college activates in the recent past all vouch for this. When all the constituents come together and work in unison, the expected results are bound to flow.

I am proud of being the Principal of such a wonderful institution dedicated to the causes of better India. Through education and their real empowerment. Come on let's give our best and make this institution a modern temple of learning through our diligence, devotion and dedication.
