Jaipur, 17th Sepetember 2015(DKJ) : On the 33rd death anniversary of respected and beloved, Late Shri P.D. Agarwal, Indian Institute of Health Management and Research (IIHMR) organised a blood donation camp in IIHMR University campus. Jaipur based Santokaba Durlabhji Memorial Hospital (SDMH) also supported to this social cause.
One of the key objectives of ‘Late Shri P.D. Agarwal Blood Drive’ is to eliminate blood shortage. The increase in number of fatal or severe injuries is on the rise due to road traffic and industrial accidents. Disease like dengue has also increased the demand for blood. Every year IIHMR organises the blood donation camp with the support of Bhoruka Blood Bank, A unit of Bhoruka Public Welfare Trust.
Dr. Ashok kaushik (Dean Academic and student affair) IIHMR, said, “Since past 7 years blood donation drives are being organised in memory of Late Shri P.D.Agarwal in the IIHMR campus. So far over 1000 units of blood have been donated and the cause has saved many lives by providing blood on health emergencies. The vision of this camp is to completely eradicate the blood shortage in india.”.
Late Shri P.D.Agarwal was the founder of various organizations like as TCI, ABC India, Bhoruka Charitable Trust, and GATI. The same initiative is being driven at all these organisation across India with the support of Bhoruka Blood Bank.

“No great improvement can be affected without definite ideals and organizations. “Investigate, educate, organize” should be our watchwords if we are to quicken the life pulse of the people and train them for a larger and fuller life.”
I am happy that this Institute has taken steps to realize his philosophy and to sensitize the students to technology enhancement and social causes. I am confident that all the students passing out from this Institute will imbibe the ideals, vision, philosophy and professional qualities of Sir Visvesvaraya. I am also glad to know that the Convocation of this Institute is usually conducted on the birth anniversary of Sir Visvesvaraya, which is also celebrated as Engineers’ Day in India, to pay tribute to this visionary leader.
The convocation today marks the completion of a vital phase in your life. You all have worked hard to acquire knowledge, technology and skills through the programme of the Institute. While achieving this, you might have undergone pressures, ups and downs and anxious moments. On this significant day in your life, you would be experiencing a certain joy and happiness to see your perseverance, hard work and commitment being translated into achievement of your goals and objectives. I am happy that all of you will now enter the professional field to become part of an active and skilled work force and will also add to the technical prowess of our nation.
Education in general, and technical education in particular, has always been seen as an instrument of transformation for economic, social and political development of the country. We have always emphasized the role of science and technology in solving the problems of society. I am reminded of what Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan had said in 1966 in his Message to the Nation on the occasion of Independence Day, and I quote,

“Science and technology will help us to solve the problems of hunger and poverty, of disease and illiteracy, of superstition and deadening custom, of vast resources running to waste of a rich country inhabited by a poor people.” (unquote)

We have to effectively utilize the power of education, the strength of science and technology in the right direction to bring positive transformation in society. You, as graduates of this Institute, have the responsibility for ushering in societal transformation using the knowledge of science and technology which you have acquired.

The Neotia University made history right in the very beginning of its existence.
