“Living beings require oxygen and ‘education’ is required for development. Therefore, education is oxygen for development,” said Dr. S.B. Mujumdar, Hon’ble Chancellor, SIU, in his keynote address at the Late Shri B.G. Deshmukh Memorial Lecture, 2018 on “Education – Oxygen for Development” jointly organized by Symbiosis Law School, Pune (SLS-P) and Public Concern for Governance Trust (PCGT), Pune Chapter, recently.

He shared PM Shri Narendra Modi’s slogan, “Sab ka Saath, Sab ka Vikas” and reminded the Indian youth of their responsibility of driving the country to the path of development. He acknowledged the high percentage of youth in India, but went on to say, “The need for the youth population to be utilized as an efficient human resource of the country, will reap benefits of the demographic dividend and prevent a demographic disaster.

He drew the audience’s attention to a glaring reality surrounding the Indian education system and said, “The low gross enrollment ratio found in the country is only 23% of the country’s youth enrolled in institutes providing higher education.” Dr. Mujumdar informed the students of the dismal state of higher education in India and held responsible factors such as old syllabus, ignorance of soft skills, poor quality and training of teachers, lack of emphasis on research, among many others.

He urged the students to commit themselves to a revolution in the field of education in India, and not to submit to the notion that foreign universities are superior. He commented, “Our country needs more skill based colleges that promote entrepreneurship, innovation and research.” Dr. Mujumdar concluded by dismissing the element of reservation in the Indian education system and upheld merit as the only criterion that must be observed by educational institutes.

This Annual Public Lecture Series has been instituted in the honor of Late Shri B. G. Deshmukh, IAS, Former Cabinet Secretary, Government of India and Principal Secretary to the Prime Minister. The basic objective behind the launch of this Annual Public Lecture Series is to explore and enlighten the youth and public about the challenges in governance in India.
