ANU hosts convocation, 567 students graduate

Rajahmundry: Adikavi Nannaya University (ANU) conducted its 11th and 12th convocations at its campus near Rajahmundry on Friday. Governor Biswabhushan Harichandan, who was the chief guest of the ceremony, awarded eight gold medals, six PhDs and degrees to 567 students.
An honorary doctorate was conferred on Prof KC Reddy, the vice-chancellor of Rajiv Gandhi University of Knowledge Technologies.
In his keynote address, the governor called upon the young graduates to stand up for the ideals of the country, the constitution and India’s heritage. “The highest education is that which does not merely give us information but makes us live in harmony with all existence,” the governor said.
Harichandan further said that educating the mind without educating the heart is not education at all, while adding, “After you leave this university, your consciousness and your soul will be your teachers. Keep your mind open. A closed mind is a stagnant pool.”
Prof KC Reddy discussed the demographic advantage India has in terms of its youth population. tnn
