A Sailor Went To Sea

A sailor went to sea, sea, sea,
To see what he could see, see, see.
But all that he could see, see, see,
Was the bottom of the deep blue sea, sea, sea.

A sailor went to sea, sea, sea,
To see what he could see, see, see.
But all that he could see, see, see,
Was the blue whale diving in the sea, sea, sea.

A sailor went to sea, sea, sea,
To see what he could see, see, see.
But all that he could see, see, see,
Was the cute giant squid in the sea, sea, sea.

Beep, beep, beep. Beep, beep, beep.

How I Began Life: Mahatma Gandhi

My elder brother had built high hopes on me. The desire for wealth and name and fame was great in him. He had a big heart, generous to a fault. This, combined with his simple nature, had attracted to him many friends, and through them he expected to get me briefs. He had also assumed that I should have a swinging practice and had, in that expectation, allowed the household expenses to become top-heavy. He had also left no stone unturned in preparing the field for my practice.

The storm in my caste over my foreign voyage was still brewing. It had divided the caste into two camps, one of which immediately re-admitted me, while the other was bent on keeping me out. To please the former my brother took me to Nasik before going to Rajkot, gave me a bath in the sacred river and, on reaching Rajkot, gave a caste dinner. I did not like all this. But my brother’s love for me was boundless, and my devotion to him was in proportion to it, and so I mechanically acted as he wished, taking his will to be law. The trouble about re-admission to the caste was thus practically over.

I never tried to seek admission to the section that had refused it. Nor did I feel even mental resentment against any of the headmen of that section.

Address by President Shri Ram Nath Kovind

I have referred to the technological and economic impact of the IITs. But there is also the social role of IITs and the place they have in the Indian imagination. For many young Indians, studying at an IIT remains the ultimate dream. I am happy to note that in the audience we have over 50 students from Navodaya Schools across the country, chosen on the basis of their academic record and merit. They will interact with the graduating class, meet the faculty and visit laboratories. I am confident some of them will return in the coming years as IIT freshers.

I am happy to know that in the run-up to the convocation, the IIT Delhi community has organised four blood donation camps. As I have said earlier, all of us must strive to give back to society in our own little way – and to donate blood is the simplest and easiest way. I would urge the IIT Delhi authorities and community to adopt and partner a school for underprivileged children and see how they can contribute to its development and to the capacity building of its pupils.

Institutions such as IIT Delhi are not just centres of education. They are hubs of communities. A central component of the IIT Delhi community is its alumni body.

(Address by the president of India at the convocation ceremony of IIT-Delhi)
