Change obtuse mentality towards Hindi
Bhopal. Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan expressed the need to change the obtuse mentality towards Hindi. He called upon people to end the slave mentality of ‘Knowledge of English is the symbol of excellence’. An environment that makes one feel proud to work in Hindi should be created. Chouhan was addressing the first convocation ceremony of the Atal Behari Vajpayee Hindi Vishwavidyalaya. At the convocation ceremony, 126 students were awarded the titles of Vidya Nidhi Snatakottar and Snatak Pratishtha. Besides, 156 students were given certificates, diploma and Post Graduate Diploma.
Personal language is the basis of all progress. The first Hindi University named after the country’s great Hindi scholar has been established in the state. This is a matter of pride. He said that all the needs of the university will be fulfilled. Efforts to affiliate the Hindi University with Medical, Engineering and other universities will be made. He urged experts from all over the state and country for guidance and support to bring the Hindi University in the category of best university.
He said that Indian knowledge, tradition and science is unique. When the civilization had not come into existence in the modern countries of the world, their residents would cover their bodies with leaves and barks of trees, at that time Indian rishi-munis were creating the sholakas of the Vedas. There were universities like Nalanda and Takshashila where learned people would come to study from all over the world. He said that only Bharatiya Gyandarshan which hopes for mutual harmony and global welfare, can show the path to peace to cure the society suffering from the fire of materialism. He said that the Mukhya Mantri Medhavi Chaatra Protsahan Yojana has been implemented so that the shortfall of resources should not come in the way of development of talents. Under this Yojana, the government will bear the expenses of higher education of students in medical, engineering, science, arts and law fields. He said that children belonging to any caste, creed, religion or community without any discrimination will be benefitted under the yojana. Shri Chouhan said that the slogan “Sarve Bhavantu Sukhinaha” is only in India.
The Chief Minister awarded the “Atal Gold Medal” to Kumari Swechcha Mishra for having acquired the highest marks in all examinations in 2014-15 and 2015-16. He also awarded the “Late Motilal Gangadevi Cheepa Gold Medal” to Nityanand Tiwari.
