There is no substitute for hard work for attaining success. No matter how talented or gifted we are, continuous hard work will always form the foundation of success. There is nothing that we cannot achieve once we put our mind to it. Honesty and integrity in whatever we engage with will not only bring with success but also a sense of fearlessness, peace and satisfaction, Dr. Virander Singh Chauhan, Executive Chairman, National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) at 8th Graduation Ceremony of Crescent Institute of Science & Technology.
