Ludhiana: 10 January 2020: (Kartika Singh//Education Screen)::
Day 4 of the ongoing NSS Camp started with a Yoga class which was attended by all the volunteers. A session on basic dining etiquette and table manners was held by the volunteers. A short film on the culture of Tamil Nadu was also screened for the volunteers. A turban tying workshop was also organised by an old student. Dr. Harblas Heera conducted a group activity with the students. It was followed by a lecture by Dr. Ravi Inder Singh. Dr. Ravi Inder was introduced by the Principal Dr. Dharam Singh Sandhu who informed the students that he is the Director of Panjab University Regional Centre and Resident Coordinator who has written 2 books and 20 research papers in various national and international journals. Dr. Ravi Inder talked about the role of an individual in nation building. He stressed on the fact that the youth are the game changers. He raised another question on different parameters used to guage the development of the nation. Human development index, ease of business and internal peace were discussed. He said," We were shreshth, we have deteriorated. You! The youth can only make or break this nation." He made a startling connection between success and social service. He defined success by way of saint Kabir ji's doha
"Jab hum aye jagat mei, Jag Hansa; hum roye;
Aisi krni kar chlo, hum hanse; Jag roye."
This is not possible without taking care of society. If you are self centered, you can never taste this kind of success. You may become a billionaire but you may not be truly successful. Reward from economic activities may take you to higher levels but social work has much more strength and the reward and recognition from society is much more. Prof. Harmeet thanked Dr. Ravi Inder for motivating the students and a token of appreciation was presented to the guest. NSS Incharge Prof Sumeet Brar, Prof Paramjit Chander, Prof Arun Kumar and Prof. Vishal were also present and supervising the volunteers. In the meanwhile "Vishav Hindi Divas" was also celebrated in the college. Dr. Mukesh Arora was the key speaker on that occasion. He throw light on the importance and widening scope of Hindi language worldwide. Dr. Monika Jain, Dr. Sourabh Kumar, Prof. Sondeep, Prof. Inderjeet Paswaan were also present on that occasion. In the end sweets were also distributed in the college campus on Global Achievements of Hindi language by the department.
