Deputy Chief Minister, Govt. of Delhi, Manish Sisodia today inaugurated the “Orientation Programme” organised by the Indira Gandhi Delhi Technical University for Women (IGDTUW), wherein eminent educationist, experts and the Students participated.
Inaugurating the programme, Sisodia said that the girls when get educated and empowered can empower the entire nation and thus play an important role in building blocks of any country and as more technical women means less Gender Gap in Industries.
He said that the universities are treasure of knowledge and the pursuit of truth, which enhances the overall development of the students and help them achieve their dreams.
Sisodia said that the orientation program familiarizes the new students with the new work culture and academic environment offered by the University and goes a long way in laying a strong foundation for the student’s life in the University System.
He said that the programme will guide and assist students through the transition from their familiar school environment to the diverse challenges of student life at a university, where they are expected to operate independently and take responsibility for their actions and choices because we believe that a sound education is a holistic one that not only provides academic qualifications, but also helps develop well-rounded individuals who will become responsible members of society.
Encouraging the students, Sisodia said, “Don’t have fear of failure. Don’t allow to ride it upon you. If it rides on you, it will harm your carrier. Put it your feet and step ahead. You will succeed in your life. (Failure se daro mat, na use apne upar haavi hone do. Failure agar haavi ho gaya to kamyaavi nahi milegi. Failure ko paron ke niche rakhkar aage badho aur safal ho gao).
Director, DTTE & Higher Education, S.S.Gill, Vice Chancellor of IGDTUW, Dr. Amita Dev, were also present on this occasion.
