NOIDA- Venkaiah Naidu, the Vice President of Delhi University stated at its 95th annual convocation that the young students should be given leeway to enhance their thinking with free minds. He added that our education system needs revamping as we cannot impose the approach of ‘One size fits all’ to all the young minds. We should understand the fact that thinking freely will nurture their minds broadly. As far as the syllabus is concerned, some students might be good in science and some in music; hence we cannot every time force them to stick to the same only.
Naidu further said, “The students must also be given the time for other activities and for this half of time must be invested in classrooms and the second half must be spent in open air in the playground, nature and society. This is the right way for the complete education of the students.”
At the convocation, Naidu addressed the students and stated, “I request all the students to enhance their limitations of marks and degrees and stand themselves above them. This is basically your base. What you gain from here, which career you opt for in life is entirely your decision. Do not let your dreams to get compromised in any way, rather increase your thirst to gain excellence in life.”
He added, “Our country has come through a long way in the platform of academics and education. Right from the Parampara of Guru–Shishya of gaining the education under the tree to becoming the leader in the platform of higher education, gaining the third largest position in the world after US and China.”
The Vice President appreciated the University for its Dedication towards building the nation and laying great emphasis on women education.
He quoted, “It is quite commendable that the vision and mission of Delhi University depicts its passion and dedication towards the human values and building a perfect nation. The moralities of the university are clearly visible in its motto: ‘Nishtha Dhriti Satyam’, Dedication, Steadfastness and Truth.”
He added, “I am quite pleased to ascertain that Delhi University is all set to put its efforts on the education of young women. Today, a large number of talented young women won prizes and medals. As the universities like DU are focusing on women’s education, I am quite satisfied that the future of our nation is in safe hands.”
Laying focus on the accountability front of the varsities, Naidu quoted, “The onus to nurture the young talent lies with the universities of the country. The major objective of our country is to grow as a leader in the global world and follow sustainable development. India can be able to achieve this goal through educating the young talent.”
The University had given 187 medals and 16 prizes and degrees to the students who have qualified the examinations in the year 2017.
