New Delhi; August 19, 2013: Education without values is like a flower without fragrance. Education should impart values to the youth that makes them sensitive to fellow human beings, and the environs around them and can prepare them to become responsible citizens. Keeping this in mind Delhi Technological University (DTU) organized Conclave on Nurturing Human Values in Education & Profession today. Padma Bhushan Dr. V.K. Saraswat, former Director General, DRDO, Ministry of Defence was the chief guest.
The event was addressed by Shri. R.P Agrawal, Chairman, BOM DTU and Prof. P.B. Sharma, Vice Chancellor, DTU
The one-day conclave is being organized by, Bhaktivedanta Institute, Kolkata in association with Delhi Technological University (DTU). While addressing the august gathering, Prof. Sharma said,Science & Technology create capabilities but we often stop at that without the care and concern to inbuilt the necessary human touch, nature care and above all love and respect for the vast diversity of creation. The modern Education system has moved away from our age old tradition of integrating knowledge with values, where a man of knowledge and capabilities was expected to practice his knowledge and expertise with utmost devotion and service orientation. The privilege of the profession was to be the privilege to serve and privilege to excel rather than the privilege to earn and privilege to exploit as it often becomes, because of the disconnect of values from capabilities of professionals. We need to rebuild our modern university education to provide this vital connect between capabilities and values.
