Academic records mostly reflect individual brilliance. But, to be a responsible member in a team with good team spirit is the starting point for leaders of tomorrow,” M. Annadurai, Project Director, Chandrayaan – 1, said here on Sunday.


Delivering the graduation address at the Kumaraguru College of Technology, he said the success of Chandrayaan -1 was symbolic of what India could be in the future. “It has demonstrated how India could lead a team of technical and scientific experts from internationally reputed organisations to realise an ambitious dream. The International Lunar Exploration Working Group’s International Co-operation Award has been given to the Chandrayaan -1 team. Team spirit is the mantra for any achievement,” he added.



Mr. Annadurai said the Chandrayaan – 1 team was being branded as the “Dream team”. “Harmonising the efforts of the team members towards a common goal and realising the objective within the allotted budget and schedule demonstrates how well the team has converted a very difficult situation into a historic opportunity,” he said.



If a Government organisation could achieve such a feat, why would it not be possible for other teams to make such achievements in fields of education, medicine, industry, trade, commerce, media, sports, arts, services, and politics, he queried. He urged the young graduates to ignore the artificially generated boundaries that differentiated people of India. “We all live in a global village. Thanks to technology, the world has shrunk. This is the right time to take conscious steps to be leaders in all fields and to make India the leader of tomorrow’s world,” he said.



He urged them to look for opportunities within the country to excel professionally. “There is no need for you to go abroad seeking a job. You can excel professionally and in the process you can be part of a bigger cause, that of building the nation”. He gave away degree certificates to nearly 700 candidates. Gold and silver medals were also awarded to meritorious candidates. N. Mahalingam, Chairman, M. Manickam, Vice-Chairman, M. Balasubramaniam, Correspondent, and Joseph V. Thanikal, Principal, of the college, spoke.
