Technologies which are environmental friendly over a long period of time can confirm sustainable happiness and sustainable prosperity. As far as the young engineers are concerned, our government named this decade which has started now 2010 as "The decade of innovation". You have a great opportunity today to innovate. The country is full of problems and full of challenges. But the challenges are also opportunities. I hope you will use your own intellect, your own hard work, your dreams, your desire and covert them into innovations which are meaningful to our people. Social relevance's and technological excellence of this country must be combined because they extend to poverty and malnutrition.
