BJP MP Varun Gandhi today interacted with more than 550 students from the Ajeenkya DY Patil University, Lohegaon today as a part of ‘Learn from the Masters’ Lecture series. Dr Ajeenkya DY Patil, President, Ajeenkya DY Patil University presided over the function.
Varun Gandhi said that success does not necessarily mean only making money and having cars . Money is like a tree, a storm can destroy it. What remains is the goodwill and blessings of the people.
The youth need to get their vision together and work not as volunteers, but partners in the nation building process so as to effect a change in the society.
While citing examples of innovation amongst the youth, Varun Gandhi added that Instead of thinking that you don’t have money or that you are alone, the youth should think of how they can effect a change in the society and come up with solutions through social entrepreneurship.
We are in a society where there are a lot of disparities. Some are fortunate, while some have to fight in their day to day lives.
He also said that students should be able to initiate debates in the Parliament through petition system the same way as people can do in England. But still, you can make use of many opportunities like RTI, Social Media, Citizen Journalist to make your voice heard.
We live in order to learn lessons and the best lesson to learn is to give back to the society, he concluded.
His lecture was followed by an interaction with the students. The students from the university asked a lot of good questions to which he responded with elan. He remarked that the students of ADYPU were very attentive and confident.
