Ravi, asked the students whether they knew who they were. He said that this was one of the most difficult questions to answer. If one knew the answer to the question he/she would know his/her purpose in life. He stated that one could know oneself only by self-awareness and through others. He also highlighted the ABCD of life, i.e. ‘Having a right Attitude with a Break-through Mindset along with Commitment and Determination’. He exhorted the students to do what they feel is right and that experiments are the key to success. He encouraged collaborative learning.
