Chennai , Oct. 2

Apart from obvious economic aspects why are Indians preferred, what makes us excel?

Every programme begins with invoking God, lighting a kuthuvilaku and that makes a difference. The value systems of Indians is something to be proud of, and that is the foundation of India," said Ms Sumukhi Jairam, GM, Corporate Alignment and Training, Caritor India Pvt Ltd, at a national-level technical symposium organised by the MCA department of Sai Ram Engineering College, Tambaram, under the aegis of the Business Line club.

Commenting on the necessity of the industry-institution cooperation, Ms Jairam said, "What happens or will happen to those who are not employed? There is tremendous pressure. Here the industry comes and shakes hand with institutes."

There is plenty for everyone in the IT sector. But one needs to hone his/her skills, adapt better, be flexible and develop a positive attitude, she emphasised. If one is to say "Oh! my God, I need to go to work," then that attitude needs to be changed. In IT, one needs to be highly flexible. "Yes, you need to be flexible in every industry. But in IT, it is more often the most important norm due to the faster technological changes happening day in and day out." Organisations want people to join them, but they need to be armed with the belief in themselves, she said.

The fourth volume of the PG department's newsletter `Techno Lead' and the sixth version of the MCA department's Web magazine `Sai' were released. The event also witnessed the release of `tech-tips', a guide for preparing the students for placement.

Mr S. Sampath Kumar, Director, Centre of Excellence, US Technology International Pvt Ltd, presided over the valedictory function and distributed prizes to the winners. More than 100 students from various colleges across the State participated and exhibited their talents.

Others present were Ms Beulah Devamalar, Dean, Placement Cell, and Dr K. Maran, HoD, MBA department.
