Our Leadership Nurturing Tomorrow's Trailblazers

Dr ram sharma upes online vice chancellor

Welcome to a new journey of learning, growth, and discovery. As you embark on this journey, remember that every human being has infinite potential. You are capable of achieving greatness beyond your wildest imagination.

However, this potential cannot be realized without hard work and effort. Remember that every action or inaction has consequences, and it is up to you to decide which path you want to take. With dedication and perseverance, you can attain the success you desire. One of the things that you will learn at the university will be to become independent and assume responsibility for your actions or inactions.

Also remember that learning is a lifelong process, and it is never too late to start. You are never too old or too young to learn something new. So, embrace every opportunity that comes your way, and never stop exploring.

I would like to share with you a few stories that will inspire you to do great things in life.

The first story is from the Syadvada philosophy of Jainism which is popularly known as “The Elephant, and Blind Men”. This story teaches us that truth has several facets. We must look at things from different perspectives before making judgments. We must be open-minded and willing to listen to others' opinions.

The second story is a conversation between Buddha and his disciple Ananda where Buddha tells him “Aatmadipo Bhav” i.e. to become his own light, which tells us that we can be our own light as well as illuminate the entire world. You have the power to make a difference in the world, and it starts with believing in yourself.

The third story is from one of my favourite books Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse where the protagonist Siddhartha meets Buddha and asks a few questions to display his intelligence despite knowing that he was talking to an enlightened one. Buddha told him "You are clever, my friend. Be on your guard against too much cleverness". This quote reminds us that intelligence alone is not enough. We must use our intelligence wisely, be on our guard against the arrogance of knowing and not let it cloud our judgment. Let's always stay humble and hungry for learning.

Finally, I leave you with the Chhandogya Upanishad's words, Tat Tvam Asi (Thou art That). You are a part of something greater than yourself, and it is up to you to realize your true and infinite potential and do whatever you choose to do in whichever field you decide.

In this ever-evolving realm of knowledge, I'm thrilled to witness how online education is shaping the future of learning at our university. The emergence of online education, featuring UGC-entitled degrees and industry-recognized certifications, has distinctly transformed the educational landscape. In a world where innovation is constant, online education remains a resolute constant. It's not just about convenience; it's about embracing the tools that will continue to empower us in an ever-changing digital landscape. Our commitment to online education is to create adaptable, tech-savvy future leaders who will drive tomorrow!

So, welcome to this journey of learning, growth, and discovery. Embrace every opportunity to attain your infinite potential, never stop working hard and exploring, and always believe in yourself.
