HDFC MD Visits KISS & KIIT

Mr. Aditya Puri, MD, HDFC Bank arrived in Bhubaneswar on a two-day visit to KIIT & KISS. On Friday he visited all campuses of KIIT and KISS, the largest free residential institute for tribals in the world. KISS is really a beautiful place, he said expressing his satisfaction, while commending its Founder Dr. A. Samanta for establishing such an institute.

Addressing 16,500 tribal students of the institute, he said, success comes only after hard work and continuous effort of a person. This is the secret of any successful person, he stated, adding that the beginning is always full of struggle. Future of the country is bright as education in India is growing, he said. He advised students to put more effort to achieve success and contribute towards nation building.

Welcoming Mr. Puri to the campus, Dr. Samanta said that visit of a personality like him is very important for the Institute. This will have a positive impact on the students of KISS and KIIT, he added, while thanking Mr. Puri for the visit.

Bhutan's PM's Four Day visit to KIIT-KISS

His Excellency Lyonchhen Jigmi Y. Thinley, Hon'ble Prime Minister, Royal Government of Bhutan will arrive here today on a four-day visit to KIIT and KISS. Security in the city has been beefed up and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and State Government are closely monitoring the preparations in the run up to his visit.  

Dr. Achyuta Samanta, Founder, KIIT & KISS had invited Mr. Thinley to KIIT and KISS during his visit to Bhutan and meeting with the Prime Minister of Bhutan last month. His visit to Odisha is a result of acceptance of this invitation.  

During his visit, Mr. Thinley would receive the prestigious 5th KISS Humanitarian Award 2012 at KISS campus on 8th Sept. 2012. He will grace the 8th Convocation of KIIT University as the Chief Guest and deliver the Convocation Address to the graduating students of the University on 9th September 2012. He will also receive the Degree of D.Litt. (Honoris Causa) on the occasion. Prof. N. L. Mitra, Chancellor, KIIT University will preside over the ceremony. The Bhutanese Prime Minister's programme in KIIT and KISS includes special interactive sessions with tribal students of KISS and Bhutanese students of KIIT University and KiiT International School.  

Mr. Thinley will also visit the Sun Temple of Konark, Puri and a few other places of tourist importance around Bhubaneswar. As the President of Maha Bodhi Society of India, Mr. Thinley will attend a function organized by the society in his honour. He is also scheduled to meet the Governor of Odisha and Chief Minister of Odisha.

Since becoming Bhutan's first democratically elected Head of Government, Mr. Jigme Thinley has been trying to promote Gross National Happiness (GNH) around the world. For an aid-dependent country of only 700,000 people, Bhutan's national brand has travelled impressively. Global financial crises and mounting unease with the human and environmental costs of untrammeled capitalism have made policymakers sit up and take notice of Bhutan's alternative approach.
