Citadel - - EVENTS -

Pune saw Lok Sabha MP Varun Gandhi in­ter­act with stu­dents from the Ajeenkya DY Patil Univer­sity, Lo­he­gaon, as a part of ‘Learn from the Masters’ lec­ture series. The func­tion was presided over by Dr Ajeenkya DY Patil, Pres­i­dent, Ajeenkya DY Patil Univer­sity. While speak­ing, Varun Gandhi stated that suc­cess does not nec­es­sar­ily mean only mak­ing money and hav­ing cars, and added that money is like a tree; a storm can de­stroy it. He said, “What re­mains is the good­will and bless­ings of the peo­ple. Youth need to get their vi­sion to­gether and work not as vol­un­teers but part­ners in the na­tion build­ing process so as to ef­fect a change in the so­ci­ety.” He fur­ther added that, “We are in a so­ci­ety with lot of dis­par­i­ties. Some are for­tu­nate while others have an up­hill strug­gle for mere sur­vival.” He spoke about the need to ini­ti­ate de­bates in Par­lia­ment through the pe­ti­tion sys­tem and also op­ti­mum use of RTI, so­cial me­dia and cit­i­zen jour­nal­ism to make voices heard. After his lec­ture, there was an en­gag­ing in­ter­ac­tion with stu­dents. Dr EB Khed­kar (Vice Chan­cel­lor, Ajeenkya D Y Patil Univer­sity) wel­comed the guests, while Hr­ri­daysh Desh­pande (Direc­tor, Ajeenkya D Y Patil Univer­sity) pro­posed the vote of thanks.
