Chandigarh, May 6, 2022 — Today, the Vice President, M. Venkaiah Naidu, emphasized the need for Universities to accord greater importance to implementable patents under Intellectual Property rights to give a fillip to the economy and industry. In addition, he termed it necessary to strengthen industry-institute linkages for better research outcomes.

Addressing the 69th Convocation ceremony of Panjab University in Chandigarh today, the Vice President said that we should move away from mediocrity.

Calling for making good quality education accessible and affordable to all, the Vice President wanted such education to positively transform an individual’s outlook, societal cohesion, and inclusive national development.

Mr. Naidu emphasized that education should transform how we look at the planet and interact with fellow human beings. He said that we should illuminate our life by the five virtues of Guru Nanak, namely - Sat (honest, truthful behavior), Santokh (contentment), Daya (compassion), Nimrata (humility), and Pyaar (love of humanity, love of divinity). I hope these principles will continue to inspire us to be better human beings, he added.

Terming peace a prerequisite for progress, Mr. Naidu called upon all universities to see that they maintain stability on campuses and focus attention on academic excellence. Emphasizing the importance of cohesion and harmony in society, he said that we should teach these values to the students from a young age in our schools. “There should be no place for caste, creed, religion, and gender divisions in the 21st century. We all belong to one country, India,” he said.
