Make fear-free, safe India 

India's image changed across world 

Nobel laureate Shri Kailash Satyarthi calls upon youth 

Orientation programme of Makhanlal Chaturvedi University begins

Bhopal, 27th July 2017: Known as ambassador of peace, Nobel laureate Shri Kailash Satyarthi called upon youth to work for fear-free, secured India. Youth is not a problem but a solution. Vedas also say that all working for betterment of the society should come together. India's image across the world has changed now. 

Shri Satyarthi was speaking in the inaugural session of three-day orientation programme of Makhanlal Chaturvedi National University of Journalism and Communication here at Samanvay Bhawan as the chief guest. He said that anger should be there in human against injustice, atrocity and wrong things and that ultimate brings changes in the society. He expressed deep concern over use of children, women and youth in violence across the world and pointed out lack of security to children in India as well.

Shri Satyarthi further said that it is absolutely wrong belief that children are deprived of education and kept away from books and schools only due to poverty. All children across the world can be sent to school if the Europe reduces one sixth of its expenditure on cosmetic items, or the USA reduces one fifth expenditure of its tobacco or one week expenditure on army can be reduced. 

He said that right to education was brought in the Constitution because of efforts by him as a common man. He realized the need of the law for education to children during his efforts to provide education to children freed from child labour. The yatra taken out from Kanyakumari as part of campaign got huge response and 163 MPs attended it at different places. 

Quoting his experience after receiving Nobel peace prize, he said that he received 40,000 invitations from different countries for attending their functions. It was found that it would take further 175 years if he attends all. 

He exhorted youths to get education and shared his experiences of movement against child labour. 

Chairing the inaugural session, University Vice-Chancellor Prof Brij Kishore Kuthiala called upon students to take resolution to work for the society and the country, along with pursuing career. Distinguished personalities of different fields are invited in the orientation programme so that students can get more knowledge apart from their career oriented education and which can be further useful in working for the society. Programme convener and head of mass communication department Sanjay Dwivedi conducted the proceedings. 

On the occasion, Nobel laureate Shri Satyarthi was felicitated. Floral tributes were paid to former President of India APJ Abdul Kalam. University's publications, 'Atulya Bharatam' and 'Media Navchintan' were released in the programme.
