Governor KK Paul today called upon students to adopt modern technology even while simultaneously preserving their traditional values.

The Governor was addressing the fifth convocation of Dev Sanskriti Vishwavidyalaya, Haridwar. He exhorted the students to realise their moral responsibility towards their country and the state.

He said the students must adopt modern technology to succeed in this era of global competitiveness. He also stressed on importance of positivity in life.

“Always keep alive a curiosity to read good books and learn something new. This leads to positive thinking and strengthens creativity and imagination,” said the Governor. He said innovation gave inspiration and provided many solutions to any problem.

Congratulating the students who were accorded degrees and gold medals, the Governor said they were now entering a new phase of their lives which would have challenges as well as opportunities for achieving success and prestige. “Accept the challenges and move forward towards success,” he said. The Governor said he was very much confident that the students passing out of the university, nurtured with Indian values, would play a significant role in the nation building. He said young people must make efforts to become job providers than job seekers.

He also called upon the students to develop the art of introspection and self-evaluation in order to improve themselves. He said the social service through internship system of the university was an appreciable effort. He suggested to the university that former students who were now on prestigious posts in various spheres should be invited to the university in an annual event so that the students here could be inspired by them and the university’s status would also be enhanced.

“The university must build an environment and arrangement which would help prepares its students for various competitive examinations at the national and state levels,” the Governor observed.

Senior faculty members and a large number of students of Dev Sanskriti Vishwavidyalaya were present on the occasion.
