New Delhi: The University of Delhi, for the first time, awarded digital degrees to its 1 lakh 73 thousand 443 students. Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh, on the occasion, pressed a button on a tab which enabled the students to receive their degrees.
Addressing the students, Singh explained the importance of rituals and said Ravana was more knowledgeable, richer and stronger than Shri Ram but nobody worships Ravana but Ram is worshipped because of his value systems.
Singh exhorted the students to work diligently and said, “It doesn’t matter how intelligent you are but what matters is how big your mind is and what your sanskars are. Do not be afraid of failure in life because no success is final and no failure is fatal. Perseverance and patience are the basic mantras of life. If you have courage, then you can achieve success in any front of life.”
Referring to India’s worldwide contribution, Singh said that from the Nobel Prize awarded to the first Indian scientist C V Raman in the last century to the world’s biggest discovery like the God Particle in this century, India’s contribution has been significant.
The Chief Guest, while calling on the students, said, “Now many changes will come in your life. The next life will start from what you have learnt during your education period. You have to work in applied mode. You will face many challenges in the coming time. At that time, it is only the knowledge gained from this university that will be your support.”
DU Vice-Chancellor Yogesh Singh said that from May, DU shall be celebrating the hundredth year of its establishment. Along with this, he also described in detail the ranking of DU at the world level.
