I thank my dear teachers, respected Director and our Chancellor Dr. P Shyamaraju , for always being a step ahead in implementing technology in our education. As a result of this we are facing limited adverse effect on our education during this lockdown situation. sharing of study material and providing assignments at regular intervals has kept us busy with studies for few hours of the day and this has helped us take our mind off the stress we have due to this epidemic. When I learnt that other major institutions in which my friends pursue MBA have not taken any such initiatives to run the curriculum as per the schedule, I felt proud of my University's initiatives so far. I assure my teachers that I will render whatever is asked for responsibly
