Lt Governor addresses BHU IIT Chennai Chapter Malaviya Jayanti Celebrations-2020; pays rich tributes to Bharat Ratna Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya Ji on his birth anniversary


    JAMMU, DECEMBER 25: Lieutenant Governor, Manoj Sinha addressed BHU IIT Chennai Chapter Malaviya Jayanti Celebrations-2020 through the virtual mode from Raj Bhavan here today.

    While addressing the alumni of Banaras Hindu University from India and abroad, the Lt Governor paid heartfelt tributes to Bharat Ratna, Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya Ji on his birth anniversary.

    Expressing his sentiments on the day, the Lt Governor said – I am emotional today not only because of my deep connection with the BHU but because we are all carrying the fragrance of Mahamana inside.

    I have heard that some initiatives were taken by the BHU in the recent past to organize workshops to carry forward Mahamana’s vision on Prachya Vidya. It is our collective responsibility to carry forward his vision, said the Lt Governor.

    Speaking on the life of Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya, the Lt Governor observed that Mahamana was a great orator, having vast knowledge of English as well as Sanskrit and he diligently worked for unity, communal harmony, and welfare of all sections of the society.
    The Lt Governor observed that when Mahamana laid the foundation stone of BHU on 14 February 1916, he was thinking about the growth of the country, Industrialization, restructuring the society, and education. He was a visionary who realized the importance of modern education and the study of science and engineering to the overall development of the country and mankind. Today BHU contributes to development across the globe by providing much sought-after manpower in the engineering sector. Thanks to the vision and foresight of Mahamana that we have not just been able to write our own development story but have made ourselves relevant to the world, the Lt Governor maintained.

    The Lt Governor observed that Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya Ji knew that independence would be meaningless unless we simultaneously prepared ourselves to build a new India. He wanted to make use of the latest scientific and technological knowledge to move on the path of development. But for his vision, it would not have been possible for our stagnating agricultural sector to bear the burden of the ever-growing population.

    “Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya Ji was of the firm opinion that for a strong nation, one requires strong Industry, and for a strong Industry, one requires a strong educational system. It was his understanding of the economy that shaped the vision for new India. On his birth anniversary, I would like to call upon the Engineering fraternity to rise to the ‘AatmaNirbhar’ call of Hon’ble Prime Minister Narendra Modi ji”, asserted the Lt Governor.
    While outlining Pandit Ji’s visionary approach, the Lt Governor remarked that we owe Industrialization of much of 20th-century progress to Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya Ji. He had envisioned an `AatmaNirbhar Bharat’ while suggesting that Indians must be provided with adequate administrative equipment and reliable scientific and technical advice.

    Underlining the significant role of Engineering Fraternity, the Lt Governor observed that the world post-Covid-19 will require cutting edge innovation. We need to realize the potential of engineers & the Engineering Fraternity and must make a concerted effort to promote cloud computing, artificial intelligence, blockchain technology, digital literacy, cyber security to drive this nation to become self-reliant. We need young talents inspired and driven by a thirst for knowledge and an inquiring mind to break the new grounds in technology and innovation. We should constantly remind ourselves that all pioneers of science and engineers who had guided the country through tough times, advocated for continuous experiments in technology, he said.

    ccThere is a close bond between BHU and India. And, the core of this deep relationship is the spirit, love, compassion, and vision of Mahamana. We also need to contribute to society and the country by working out mechanisms on how to structure engineering educational institutions. That will be a true tribute to our great Mahamana, observed the Lt Governor.

    Don’t get confused with your purpose and passion as both go well together

    Passion as well as purpose both goes hand in hand. Purpose defines the passion in life. If you are passionate about something then there will be a purpose behind it. And if you feel that you are passionate about something but you are not able to find the purpose behind it then please do self-analysis. There is surely something that you are missing out on. Munish Maya in his Instagram post took out few minutes to write about Purpose and Passion, as he feels that it is an important topic to be discussed with everyone. Mr. Maya started writing his post by making a statement, “Many people confuse passion with purpose. Others struggle to find both.”

    Self-analyzing is a very tough job and it’s completely natural to get confused. Solving this problem Munish Maya says, “Passion & purpose are distinct. Passion is the drive, the energy that makes us feel good. Like they say, ‘do what you love.” People follow their passion to live a stress-free life where they can enjoy whatever the work they are doing. It is well said, ‘Follow your passion and there will not be a single day when you will have to work.’ Whereas the most asked question in relevance to passion, ‘What is the purpose?’ is answered very well by Munish

    Maya in his same post, “Your purpose is the reason, your ‘Why’ behind what you do.” 

    Passion and purpose go hand in hand. Munish Maya says, “From over a decade, I experienced, learned, evolved & developed new passions. They have changed my life & perspective in a great way.” Passion serves the purpose of life. Munish Maya himself followed his passion when he realized that he cannot do a 9-5 profile job, and look at him now, he is the 1st Global Brand Ambassador of India. His passion leads him to define the purpose of his life. The only purpose of Munish Maya’s life is to serve people by guiding and enlightening them about their lives.

    This confusion between passion and purpose is not for the lifetime. To which Munish Maya explained by saying, “But the sweet spot is where your passion & purpose align.

    One fuels your internal drive while the other maximizes your outward impact.” When both purpose and passion start to align then you will start gaining success and positivity in life.

    Munish Maya describes it more beautifully, “And in the path of manifestation, Purpose fuels Passion. By focusing on your purpose, you align your work with your deepest drive- your passion.” If you are passionate about something in your life, then the purpose of your life is served.
