Prez addresses Utkal University convocation

Friday, 01 March 2024 | PNS | BHUBANESWAR

President Droupadi Murmu addressed the 53rd convocation of the Utkal University here on Thursday


She said that since its inception, the Utkal University has made its mark in the field of education not only in Odisha but also all over India. It is a leading university of the country in terms of its campus, environment and teaching tradition.


She paid tributes to all the visionaries who have contributed in the journey of this university.


Murmu said it is her good fortune to have been a student of the Utkal University. Many students have brought honour to the Utkal University by doing remarkable works in various fields.


She noted that more than two lakh students are studying in the colleges recognised under the Utkal University. The percentage of girls is greater than boys among these students. She called upon students to inculcate human qualities, most importantly modesty and humility, love and compassion in everyone they meet. She said they should remember that peace and harmony are essential for human existence.


The President said that when she was in school, her teachers often taught to love mother, motherland and mother tongue. She stated that education in our mother tongue connects us with our culture. “We have inherited a very rich culture, and we have to preserve it. We should recognise our roots to preserve the Indian knowledge tradition,” she said.
