New Delhi, April 16

Union Minister of Science and Technology Dr Harsh Vardhan today said India has always been a land of “vishwa gurus” (world leaders) as he urged students to think “out of the box” in their respective fields.

The minister said this while speaking at the Annual Convocation 2017 of Jamia Millia Islamia University. 

He was the chief guest on the occasion.

“We have fantastic DNA and glorious past. We were vishwa gurus in all subjects. Read the history of anything including science, medicine, architecture or law.

“I urge students to have out of the box thinking and have a dream. They all should contribute to the society,” he said.

Over 4,000 degrees and diplomas were awarded to students on the occasion, which also saw Manipur Governor and Chancellor of the university Najma Heptulla attending the event.
