PRAYAGRAJ: UP governor Anandiben Patel on Monday said the entire world was looking towards India to lead when it came to resolving major issues, including global warming and environmental challenges.
She was addressing the convocation of Uttar Pradesh Rajarshi Tandon Open University (UPRTOU) in Prayagraj.
While speaking of Dr Shakuntala Misra National Rehabilitation University (DSMRU) for differently-abled at Lucknow, the governor said that it pained her to see that only around 30 per cent of the differently-abled students were taking admission to the university which is specially made for them.
“I appeal to all the teachers, principals and faculty members of the higher education institution to spread awareness about this university so that needy students should continue with their education,” said the governor.
She further said that as the world was facing several issues, including global warming, global leaders are looking toward India.
The governor said that the 20 nations of the group control 80 per cent of the world’s resources and as such, these nations should function like mentors for the rest of the world.
The governor also talked about promoting literacy among the fairer sex and prisoners.
“This is immense satisfaction that a female married student has won not one but three gold medals and the same could not have been possible without the support of her in-laws and husband and for that, they should also be honoured,” said the chancellor of the university.
She said that the university should prepare such students who would tell the representatives of the country participating in the G-20 about the rich legacy and traditions of the country.
She said that a target should be set to increase the share of youth in higher education from 30 per cent to 50 per cent by 2030.
The governor said that the youth should fulfil their responsibilities along with sensitivity, patriotism, environmental protection, and water conservation.
She said that the field of education was very broad and therefore, students should understand it in totality.
Vice-chancellor professor Seema Singh while presenting the welcome speech and progress report of the university said the university was rapidly moving towards the development of its structure along with its academic achievements.
“The university is always ready for its multi-faceted development and to connect the neglected sections of society with the mainstream,” she said.
She further added that the University’s Women’s Studies Center was making efforts to make rural women self-reliant by organising awareness camps in the villages.
In the 17th convocation, which started with a delay of around three hours because of the late arrival of the governor, 23 gold medals were awarded to the students who scored the highest marks in various streams, in which eight gold medals were given to male students while 15 gold medals were awarded to girl students.
In the convocation ceremony, degrees were awarded to about 20,000 students who passed the session in December 2021 and June 2022.
The chancellor’s gold medal was awarded to Pratigya Mishra, a student of the University Main Campus Study Center.
This time 10 meritorious students were honoured with the Donor Gold Medal.
Shri Kailashpat Nevetia memorial Gold medal was awarded to Smita Dikshit for standing first in the MBA course. Dikshit, who has recently done her PhD from Allahabad University is presently working as an assistant professor at United University.
For the first time in the history of the university, Pratigya Mishra was awarded four gold medals in this convocation ceremony. Along with this, another student Anjali Singh was given three gold medals simultaneously.
