Exhorting the trainees on completion of their training, the secretary encouraged them to start doing something with what they had learned during their entire training and start earning a livelihood with the machines and tool kits given to them. He urged them to cooperate with the villagers and community and contribute to society by charging nominal rates for their services so as to attract customers.
