'Knowledge is power'
Educational institutions are not only meant to be the centers of learning but more importantly incubators of innovation and creativity. We, at PPG are of firm conviction that every educational institution should be designed in such a way that it is an eco system that enables the students discover themselves, identify their latent potential and tap and transform their talents dormant in them.
I would like to quote from Tagore’s Gitanjali
Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high;
Where words come out from the depth of truth;
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection;
Where the mind is led forward by thee into ever-widening thought and action---
This is what the value we intend to inculcate and deeply etch in the minds of each and every student entering the portals of PPG Institutions.
Ms. Shanthi ThangaveluCorrespondent
