What is needed from the present day young professionals is more of practical optimism.Imagining and thinking big is not enough. There is always a need to be ready to plan and execute as planned. Optimism is good but not at the expense of overlooking the ground realities. Since there is hardly any time available for gaining rich experience in the field, this often results in major mishaps, blunders and setbacks…and the dream of reaching the pinnacle of excellence never turns into reality.

Being sincere and responsible towards what we do, is the need of the day.
