The Vice President of India, M. Venkaiah Naidu, has said that every student must be disciplined and have an outlook for the development of the country. Education should make us humble and help us in becoming a useful person. He was addressing the 31st Convocation of the Kurukshetra University, in Kurukshetra, Haryana today.

“It is my good fortune that today I have had the opportunity to be among all of you in this sacred “Karmabhoomi” and the birthplace of the Bhagavad Gita. This virtuous land is not only a special place in the state of Haryana but also in India and in the mind of millions of Indians. Kurukshetra, which has been called ‘Dharmakshetra’ in the Bhagavad Gita, has been a symbol of the cultural, spiritual and material prosperity of our civilization over the centuries,” Mr. Naidu said.

“In the 21st century, research, innovation, and technical knowledge are the basic tenets of success. In the direction of establishing a knowledge-based society, we will need these three. That’s why our academics and students need to make these three basic mantras a part of their work culture,” Mr. Naidu told the audience.

Meanwhile, it is interesting to note that under Categorization of Universities for Grant of Graded Autonomy Regulations 2018, the University Grants Commission has declared Kurukshetra University a “Category 1” university, which makes it relatively superior to the much celebrated Panjab University Chandigarh in its neighborhood. Panjab University is a “Category 2” university.

Photographers chose a variety of stunning landscapes, personal portraits, touching encounters and sporting moments as their inspiration. Chair of judges Zelda Cheatle comments: “Judging the Open competition and National Awards allowed me to discover high calibre international work of great interest. In choosing the winners, the images all had to have something special - whether it be composition, impact, skill, a portrayal of a unique event or informing in a new way. Above all else, each winner had to be an exceptional photograph.” All Open category and National Award winners receive the latest digital imaging equipment from Sony. In addition, the winning work will be published in the 2018 Awards’ book and shown at the Sony World Photography Awards Exhibition in London from April 20 - May 6.
