The President of India, Shri Pranab Mukherjee attended the 23rd Annual Convocation of Pondicherry University, Pondicherry today (September 25, 2013).

Speaking on the occasion, the President said we have made ‘Right to Education' a reality in our country. We have to now stress on ‘Right Education'.

A university has to be a temple of learning; of humanism, tolerance and balanced reasoning. Through the intellectual pursuits and knowledge sharing of scholars, academicians and scientists, it has to contribute to the progress of our society and the nation. Education has to create responsible, innovative, analytical and compassionate citizens.

It has to respond positively to the change in society. Every youth aims at becoming intellectually competent and technically skilled. But knowledge generation without value formation counts for little. Education without values is like a flower without fragrance. Education has to impart values to the youth to make them sensitive to fellow human beings. It has to be a process that completes an individual in all respects.

Dignitaries present on the occasion were Lt. Governor of Puducherry, Shri Virendra Kataria, Chief Minister of Puducherry, Shri N Rangasamy, Union Minister of State for Personnel, Public Grievances and Pensions and Prime Minister's Office, Shri V. Narayanasamy and Vice-chancellor of Pondicherry University, Prof. Chandra Krishnamurthy.
