“Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important ones’’ said Albert Einstein laying great emphasis on personal integrity one must live with. Resonating similar sentiments, students and faculty of Symbiosis institute of business management took a pledge of integrity during vigilance week held from October 28th to November 2, 2019.
This year the theme for the vigilance week was ‘Integrity – A way of life’, The week is observed every year by the central vigilance commission.
The students and faculty took the pledge to lead a life with integrity to make society a better place for all. We pledged to shun the virtues that plague our world more than ever in the current times. As our society grapples with corruption, intolerance and many more issues, it is the calling from one’s within that can pave the path for the beginning of the change.
Integrity must not only reflect in words it must appear in our every action. We all must aspire to attain the pursuit of doing right and behaving just. A man of integrity always holds his head high and his mind is without fear, as Abraham Lincoln once said in his own words, “I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live up to what light I have.” So we must all work towards leading a life with integrity.
