BHOPAL: Nowadays, women are marching ahead in every field and I am happy that among the gold medal winners, 80% are girls. Governor and Chancellor of State Universities Mangubhai Patel stated at the convocation function of Barkatullah University (BU) at Minto Hall on Tuesday.

“It seems that boys consider Sachin Tendulkar and Virat Kohli as their role models. That is why they are not focused on their studies,” he added.

“We have to learn from the corona pandemic that ideals and values also matter. Science and modernity alone do not lead to overall development of the individual,” he said. He urged the students to serve the country. He also reiterated the concept of self-reliant India and said that they will have to make more efforts in this direction. 

Undergraduate, postgraduate and PhD degrees were awarded to students of 2019-20 academic session at the function. The boys wore white kurta-pyjamas, orange coloured safas and jackets, while girls were dressed in white or cream coloured sarees and orange safas.

Gold medals were presented to 24 toppers of whom 18 were women. Postgraduate degrees were awarded to 50 students and UG degrees to 40 passouts. Besides, 65 students were awarded PhD degrees. 

Pankaj Mittal, Secretary General, Association of Indian Universities, New Delhi, Vice-Chancellor, Prof RJ Rao, registrar IK Mansoori and faculty members were present at the function.
