Students should aim high: Director Cheran

CUDDALORE:

         Have a vivid picture of what you want to be in your mind's eye and strive towards it with single-minded devotion. This is the formula for success prescribed by Tamil film director and actor Cheran.

        He was delivering a speech at the ‘Stepping stones' programme, a guidance session meant for Plus Two students organized by the Arunai College of Engineering, Tiruvannamalai, on the premises of St. Joseph's College here on Thursday.

         Mr Cheran said that the humiliations and failures suffered in the formative years propelled him to reach the heights of glory and his film career was a salient example in this regard. When he was denied admission for a function in the Valluvar Kottam in Chennai, he resolved to get felicitated in the same venue, and his movie ‘Bharathi Kannamma' fetched him the honour. He also harboured the ambition of getting a national award from the President and that too materialised. Above all, he desired to bring his parents joy and he was successful in that too.

            Therefore, Mr Cheran said that the students should aim high and spurn all kinds of diversions, which were aplenty, to attain their goals. Hard work would always bring its rewards, he said.

Life-long process

           Film lyricist N. Muthukumar said that the students should take to studies out of their own interest and not out of compulsion. Studying was a life-long process and should not to be confined only to school days or college days. Set aside some money for buying books of interest and make a provision for a book shelf in every household, he told the students.

           Mr Muthukumar further said that Tamil literature had the unique quality of energising the readers because it was close to life. Therefore, he called upon the students to cultivate the habit of perusing Tamil literary works.

       Professor K. Gnanasambandan, who has been a moderator for many a debate, said that when he started as an orator he felt dumbstruck and could not even remember his name. But he consciously made efforts to overcome the stage fear that won him accolades both in the country and abroad. Managing Director of Arunai College of Engineering E.V.Kamban, vice-president E.V.Kumaran, vice-president and Principal M. Arumugham also spoke.
