“In glancing through the prospectus and curriculum of the new school I have been struck by the great variety of subjects with which the students will have to make acquaintances. I have noted with special interest that training in the field, and frequent visits to colleges are included. To this I have no doubt you are right to attach importance, not merely because of the direct experience which will be gained there from, but because the students will have an opportunity to see for themselves the conditions of labor in mines, and to study some of the social problems which are of such vital importance to industry. If they can acquire a real intimacy with and a sympathetic understanding of such problems, the value of their future work for India will be doubled. I look with much hope to the School to develop in its students vigorous ideals of social service. : Extracts From Lord Irwin’s Speech At the opening of the Indian School of Mines, Dhanbad, On 9th December, 1926”
