New Delhi: The Principal of St Stephen's College Dr Valson Thampu delivered the first lecture on Citizen Empowerment and Cultural Richness on Saturday. The topic of discussion was Individual, Family and Society.
Dr Thampu stressed on the fact that we need to make our growth the most important thing in life. "It is something that bridges the gap between who you are and what you can become, but we need to clear certain stumbling blocks that come on our way like - laziness, cowardice and leading a purposeless life", he said.
"The greater the difficulty the greater is the happiness," Dr Thampu said.
Dr Thampu interacted with students and answered their queries on various issues related to life and struggles and an individual's perception about it.
