“Our students must be aware about the basic laws and principles that govern the land. The citizens must connect with our constitution because it is our ultimate safeguard. That is why I insist on propagation of constitutional culture. It is high time for all institutions, to introduce a subject on the basic ideas about constitution and governance, irrespective of the stream of learning. The ideas of the constitution need to be simplified for everyone’s understanding and empowerment. A participatory democracy thrives when its citizens are able to make informed choices. The ultimate goal of our education should be to enable us to make informed choices.” The CJI said in the speech.
While congratulating CJI said that “My heartiest congratulations to all those who received their degrees and honours today, in this 82nd Annual Convocation. It is a joyous occasion for everyone involved. Your parents and your family must be proud of your achievements. They have been your constant supporters. The history and legacy of this great institution places a heavy obligation upon your young shoulders. I wish all of you the very best in all your future endeavours.”
CJI further said that “The social-media, television and pop-culture glamourize a particular way of life and sadly we are blindly aping the same. Instead of celebrating our distinct heritage and culture, we are allowing our rich identities to be blurred. The present generation is in flux. It is gradually losing link to the past and thereby losing the sight of the purpose and path to future.”
As clarified by OU Vice-Chancellor D.Ravinder, only those candidates who had passed the examinations between October 2021 and July 2022were eligible to receive their Phd and gold medals at the convocation.
