International Student’s Convocation Ceremony

Hon’ble Governor of Sikkim Shri Shriniwas Patil today attended International Student’s Convocation Ceremony at Symbiosis International University, Pune.

Addressing the overseas graduates from various universities and institutions across India as Chief Guest on the occasion, Hon’ble Governor termed the convocation as unique assembly of cultures and minds. “It is a celebration of diversity and at the same time, a fusion of common goals and the will to learn and improvise for the good of mankind”, he said. He also appreciated the unique initiative of Symbiosis University of holding Convocation of International Students studying in various Universities and Institution and hailed it as the appropriate step forward towards fulfilling the spirit and vision of ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam’ or ‘the world is one family’ that we as Indian propagate since time immemorial.

It may be mentioned that students from Africa, Asia, the Middle-East, the Gulf among others studying in various universities in India were the participants of the convocation.

In his convocation address, Hon’ble Governor also stated that at a time when our world is divided by physical, economic and social barriers and those of the mind resulting in wars, conflicts, hunger, poverty, global warming, economic uncertainty, prejudice and discrimination, the assemblage of international students from universities across India to celebrate their achievements has given us hope and positivity.

“A hope that the world can be shrunk, where human ties speak of friendships, of trust, of respect, of togetherness. It reinforces the resilience, the care, the humanity that is within each of us. Regardless of our faith, our beliefs, our family ties, our affiliations, it strengthens the view that we can sit together in one space to share a defining moment”, Hon’ble Governor said.

He also urged the graduating students to be ambassador of international peace and friendship and work for a better world when they return to their respective countries.
