Today, September 2nd, in Hyderabad, India, Lieutenant Governor Shri Manoj Sinha met with graduates of Banaras Hindu University (BHU) to honour Mahamana Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya.
The Lt. Governor spoke about Mahamana Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya, who is widely credited with ushering in the country’s scientific and industrial revolution.
The Lieutenant Governor made the following statement on Mahamana Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya: “Mahamana Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya laid the foundation of the knowledge society and played a key role in taking the benefits of science, technology, education, and the industries.”
According to him, contemporary India may be traced back to the principles and goals of Mahamana.
Today, India is among the world’s foremost scientific superpowers. Mahamana’s broad perspective was very helpful to our nation. The Lieutenant Governor said that “new opportunities to explore new frontiers of scientific knowledge” had been made possible by Mahamana’s efforts to provide a solid foundation of research and technology.
One of the first visionaries to strike a chord between cutting-edge technology and traditional Indian values was Mahamana. In 1916, he established four major departments dedicated to research and technology to assist the nation and its future aspirations: the research, Engineering, Chemistry, and Technology departments.
The Lieutenant Governor has said that Mahamana has turned BHU into a training ground for highly skilled individuals who not only serve the country but also help other countries develop.
Attendees included notable figures from many areas of life, including BHU alums.
