When you go to KISS, you witness a University that stands for Humanity. When thousands of children are eating together, then you see the elements of humanism on the campus of this university. It requires commitment of the highest order. It requires passion - almost close to obsession. Only then you can think about such kind of qualitative change.
I am conscious of energy, effort and commitment to build KIIT and KISS. I congratulate Dr. Achyuta Samanta for all your achievements. The students of KIIT & KISS are the future of India and the world.
KISS is a real 'Lighthouse Project'. It is a manifestation of the motto of Art of Giving by its Founder.
