With the beginning
of a new academic
session round the cor
ner,
the University is pre
paring itself to greet
the new students. Kil
T, as
a University, has alre
ady proved itself, for
which nearly 1.5 lak
h
students appeared
the test to get admiss
ion. It is expected of
the
students, who after
such a competition
could make it to Kil
T, to
uphold the dignity and
sanctity of this great
institution. KilT is pro
ud
of its students. The
remarkable feats ach
ieved by the studen
ts
speak volumes abo
ut the quality of teachi
ng and training impart
ed
in the University. As
the most progressive
University, KilT has
been
organizing semina
rs, workshops, nat
ional and interna
tional
conventions. In non

forge ahead. Ce

to name. The stu
dent's
achievements and
their placement are
some of the unique
feats
that make KilT a cla
ss of its own. While
KilT has been adding
new
feathers to its cap, its
protege Kalinga Ins
titute of Social Scien
ces
(KISS) is creating
waves both in aca
demic and extra-cur
ricular
activities. Is it not
amazing to find the
tiny institution is now
celebrating its two
decades of existe

est
residential institution
for the indigenous chi

was fortunate to be
blessed by Shri B. L.
Joshi,

st
accolade for the unt

I am happy to see that the initiative taken by Dr.
Samanta way back in 1993 has now celebrating 20'h
year of its existence. It is not that it is in the verge of
completing 2 decades, but completion of 20 years of
success of revolution, called KISS. I gathered that
many states have come forward to replicate KISS in
their states. World media has been writing about
KISS. While TIME Magazine put up a story about it,
Times from London has hailed Dr. Samanta's 'seva'
service without any expectation. The smiling faces of
2 0 , 000 children, the blessings of their parents, the
satisfaction of giving back to the society and the rare
reviews by the entire world are with him. I have gone
through the article published in Reader's Digest
about Dr. Samanta. I compliment Dr. Samanta for his
dedication.
Lea rn i n g is a conti n uo u s p rocess. We s h o u l d
crave f o r l e a rn i n g with a p p l ication o f o u r knowledge i n

have to address this problem. Education should give
graduates the ability and belief that they can create
their own jobs and thus become employers rather
