As per the ancient Indian tradition, education means walking with God. The word education means removal of darkness. When we read them together, it means that if you walk along with God the shadow that permeates over our ‘self’ will be exterminated. Therefore, the motto of the College from darkness to light brings out true meaning of education.
Education, therefore, means to lead one to God, the everlasting light to enlighten the hearts and minds of the people. It’s a noble task. That may be the reason why Victor Hugo says, “He who opens a school door, closes a prison”. Education is not filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire, says W.B.Yeats. Fire removes impurities and remains pure itself.
St. Ann’s College provides a platform to let the spark of fire, that is, the thirst for knowledge be placed in the heart of every people we cater to.
May God bless you all with peace and prosperity and reward our noble actions with the unending bliss.
