New Delhi, October 23, 2018 — The Vice President of India, M. Venkaiah Naidu, has said that girls’ education should be the center of women empowerment. Addressing the 13th convocation of Jamia Hamdard University, here today, he stressed the need to empower students, especially girls by providing skills, apart from academic excellence to compete in the global job market.

The Vice President appreciated the efforts of Jamia Hamdard Management and faculty for having almost 50% enrolment of female students in its Hamdard programs and said that educating girls of all sections of society is a vital factor in the overall development of the nation.

There is nothing more important than educating women - it is the one sure shot, a consistent gauge of progress for practically every development indicator, from mortality declines to economic growth, democracy, and justice, he said.

“Jamia Hamdard currently houses one of the pioneering colleges in the field of Nursing Education. I understand that there is a fierce competition happening to obtain a seat in the prestigious Rufaida College of Nursing at Jamia Hamdard. I appreciate that graduates and teachers of the Nursing College of Jamia Hamdard have won global recognition for their committed service,” Mr. Naidu stated.

Mr. Naidu told the students in the medical profession not to let technology and gadgets overtake people and relationships. “Always respond sensibly, sensitively, reservedly and mildly to people who come to you suffering from ailments of the mind, body, and spirit. Always be kind, for there is no virtue like kindness,” he advised.

“The world is now truly a global village, and you are all ready to take a global journey,” the Vice President said. “Each step you take in the right direction will make you, your family, and your nation proud. The University expects you to remain forever worthy of the degree that is being conferred upon you today, and become ambassadors of your alma mater.”
