Margao: March 26, 2018 … Unless and until one doesn’t keep a vision it will be difficult to march towards progress and to achieve greater heights in life. Planning is very much important in life and should be done meticulously. Practical knowledge and experience is very much important apart from books, said Minister for PWD, Shri Sudin Dhavlikar.
Speaking after inaugurating “SANKRITI 2018” an event concerned with Civil Engineering organised by Don Bosco College of Engineering, Fatorda in association with Civil Engineering Students Association and Indian Concrete Institute, Students Chapter at the college premises, today, Shri Dhavlikar urged students to focus on imparting practical technical education apart from books.
