Vice President Naidu addresses 34th Convocation of Banasthali Vidyapith in Rajasthan
Addressing the 34th convocation of Banasthali Vidyapith, a noted women's university in Rajasthan, Vice President M Venkaiah Naidu on January 7, stressed upon the need for a holistic, life giving and character building education system as well as women's empowerment for the country's growth and development, stated an official press release.

While lauding the 'Panchmukhi Shiksha Model' of Banasthali Vidyapith, termed the model 'an innovative way to impart holistic education that enables every student to recognize her innate potential, and help in integrating the knowledge gained with its cultural and environmental context' and appreciated the university wherein generations of young girls blossomed under personal and supportive care.

"It is indeed gratifying to note that Banasthali Vidyapith has come a long way in its journey to provide education to women. In the era when literacy was low and girls remained confined to homes, Banasthali Vidyapith became the pioneer in the cause of education of girls. In the era when the women were learning to use bicycles, Banasthali Vidyapith ensured that women rode horses, and reached for greater heights as gliders and pilots," he added.

He further said that when Science and Technology courses still remain male dominated, the students of this premier university for women were learning the 'Internet of Things' and 'gaining technological skills in the most advanced industry 4.0 laboratories of Mechatronics and Robotics'. He wished that Banasthali Vidyapith would continue to remain the pace setter in Women's education.
