World renowned classical dancer and daughter to present President of India, Shri Pranab Mukherjee; Sharmistha Mukherjee visited Lovely Professional University, today, and interacted with LPU students. She shared her views about great Indian cultural heritage, liberty, democracy, innovation, learning, independence and passion to live life to the lees. She was at LPU to define “the role of youth in nation building”. She said it vehemently that the need of the hour is to channelize youth energy of the country for constructive purposes.
Interacting with LPU students, Ms Sharmistha answered to students’ questions about brain-drain, corruption, social media, connection, reservation and more in a very befitting manner. She told students that corruption can be abolished only through people’s movement and awareness. She also upheld that social media has both positive and negative aspects but it should be utilized with dignity of interaction and discourse. Talking about reservation, she told it as a socio-economic justice. She held that in an ideal society there should not be a reservation, but there should not be discrimination also. Taking her personal example, she invoked students to best utilize their present time as they can create wonders in this age only. Make set choices to excel in their chosen field. Get involved passionately in a particular field, follow it with heart and success will be there certainly. Always make the right choice so that you may not feel guilty afterwards.
