“I earnestly hope that you will be ever eager to embrace challenges arising out of continually changing security scenarios and that you will work innovatively, ensure inclusivity, network effectively and succeed in the midst of a fiercely competitive world and will contribute in a big way to the self reliance in defence science and technology,” he said.
