No doubt, it was not easy to get freedom from the British rule in the year 1947.

After obtaining our political independence, tremendous progress has been achieved in the field of science, information technology, education, sports and games. India is a country of various cultures, races, languages and religions. It is a land of unity in diversity where people of different lifestyles and manners live together in  harmonious way.’


The Campus Director Rev. Dr Antony Prakash Monteiro in his message said, ‘In the year 1947, our nation became politically independent. It was the result of great efforts of our freedom fighters. It is inevitable to have patriotism and selfless attitude in all our approaches.’

     The Principal of St Philomena Pre-University College Rev. Fr Vijay Lobo said, ‘We remember the great freedom fighters who fought for attaining independence of the nation. Freedom without responsibility is meaningless and responsibility without freedom is of no use. We need freedom with responsibility.’
