The chief guest Bharath Kumar addressed the gathering by saying, “It is compulsory to donate blood above the age of 18, as it cannot be bought from any tree, plant or factory. We should inspire others by donating blood. Students should not have any bad habits as then they will not be able to donate blood. He advised that we should always give side to the ambulance in an emergency, as we don’t know that our relatives are in that emergency. Auto drivers are the only men who come for any help. Always respect your parents.
We are grateful to have our parents and we will achieve success.”
Dr Deepa Adiga spoke a few words saying that “Blood is the only thing you can donate when you are alive. The blood cannot be stored for more than 30 days. The donated blood is grouped into three types Red blood cells, White blood cells, Platelets and then it’s stored in the blood bank.”
In his Presidential address, Rev Fr John Dsouza SJ said, “I feel very happy when you donate blood. It is a precious gift that you give to someone, it is always the auto drivers who are the real heroes who help without any expectations and he promised that our institution will provide scholarships to the auto driver students who come for ITI education.
