The students of Sampurnanand Sanskrit Vishwavidyalaya (SSV) have a great responsibility of spreading Sanskrit language worldwide and its future will depend on how they profess and look after its interest in the coming years, Uttar Pradesh Governor B L Joshi said.
Addressing the 31st Convocation of the university, Joshi, who is also its chancellor, said the students of SSV are the most fortunate ones as they got a chance to study here.
"I myself regret that I didn't get a chance to study Sanskrit at such a prestigious university," he said. "It is one of the best institution of Sanskrit learning in the country.
The students of this varsity have a great responsibility of spreading this language worldwide," Joshi said, adding that "they are the future of Sanskrit and the name and fame of the language would mainly depend on how they profess and look after its interest in the coming years."
Former Supreme Court judge Justice (Retd) Mukundakam Sharma, who was the chief guest, said SSV is a highly reputed institution and has acquired many distinctions through the years.
Nearly 30 meritorious students were awarded gold medals by the chief guest and the Governor.
Meanwhile, a section of students walked out of the convocation hall to protest against the tradition of wearing gown on the occasion. They also shouted slogans against the University administration.
