Awards for NUST high achievers
Islamabad: National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST) Rector Mohammad Asghar Tuesday said that in order to achieve success one has to be honest, and truthful besides being intellectual, which are the main keys of success in life.

He expressed these views while addressing the prize distribution ceremony of High Achievers of NUST 2014 held at the Jinnah Auditorium of the institution's main campus.

While elaborating his point, Mohammad Asghar stated that a balanced person is the one who is not only intellectual, but a good human being and is equally engaged in social activities through his good deeds for the welfare of people. "Acting on these principles success is possible in individual life," he added.

Intellectuals should have good moral character without making any frictions with others otherwise, he assured that no one would succeed in his life. He regretted that these days people revolve around their personal interests, which is not the right approach towards life.

Similarly, the physical body of a person is very important to work, attain goals and distinctions and doing spiritual practice in life. "Mind is to learn and gain knowledge and it should not be related with religious aspects, he said adding learning is the next area, which one has to do and it develops human mind. Through heart we learn to love humanity without creating frictions in life. We should respect others. Another major element is spirit, which distinguishes between right and wrong. We are facing great challenges and failing to decide what we have to do and adopt to tackle issues. For taking decisions wisdom is necessary. A sign of wisdom is to distinguish between good and wrong deeds," he added.

Referring to activities of NUST, the rector said that in five years this institution has spent amount of Rs931 million for awarding scholarships to deserving students. "Our faculty gives scholarships to deserving students so that they can attain higher education. The students of NUST are both intellectuals and physically competent," he added.
