Debates and Seminar’s Committee of GDC Boniyar in collaboration with the IQAC of the College is organized Two Days Workshop from 21-22 June 2023 on Innovation and Entrepreneurship. Young and budding Innovators and Entrepreneurs from different areas of the Valley were invited. The Workshop was organized to encourage student community to locate and polish their latent talents regarding Innovation and Entrepreneurship. The purpose was to assemble and identify different aura of the student personas. As we know that, personality is capabilities and capacities woven together in a composed whole. Manifestation of these capabilities brings expression and identity to human existence. Therefore, it becomes highly imperative to click them, ignite them and spark them; and once the flight is taken off, a new life begins; it is only when the egg shells are broken the new life takes its breath. Life demands freshness, innovation and dynamism. This dynamism and newness has to start from ideas. We believe that, ossification of minds and rudimentation of ideas cause death to civilizations.
