Pune, August 4, 2022: India is rich in art and culture, which gives us a distinct identity. Young people should study the art and culture of our country and while choosing good ideas from western culture, they should dream of creating a ‘super vibrant India’, said Ishan Ghosh, young tabla exponent, son and disciple by Pt. Nayan Ghosh. He was speaking at a program called ‘Diksharambha’ organized yesterday by the School of Liberal Arts at MIT World Peace University at the Institute’s Vivekananda Auditorium. Vibhavari Deshpande, actress, Ravindra Das, Additional Commissioner of Central GST and Customs, Dr. RM Chitnis, Vice Chancellor of MIT World University of Peace, Dr. Sanjay Upadhye and Dr. Preeti Joshi, Director of MIT WPU School of Liberal Arts were present on the occasion.
“Young people today have the opportunity to learn a lot. They should assimilate some of the good things from other cultures in our culture and try to create innovative works of art,” Ishan said while presenting a Tabla solo performance of traditional compositions. He was accompanied by Abhishek Shinkar on the harmonium.
Vibhavari Deshpande said, “COVID has taught us the importance of learning alternative skills. We all have more than one skill, but we dare not use those skills. Students in particular should discover special talents and skills and should not limit themselves to learning just one thing. »
“Liberal arts offers students the opportunity to study their subject of interest in more than one discipline. But students should always remember that success or failure in education or career path does not define one’s life. Therefore, one should not feel elated by success or exhausted by failure,” said Ravindra Das.
Dr. RM Chitnis said, “Intelligent Quotient (EQ), Emotional Quotient (EQ) and Spiritual Quotient (SQ) are the trinity of success. At MIT World Peace University, we always strive to embrace this trinity and provide quality education to our students to make them better people.
Dr. Preeti Joshi said, “In just three years, MIT’s School of Liberal Arts has successfully established itself as one of the nation’s top institutes. We believe that what students learn outside of the classroom is more important than what they learn in the classroom. Therefore, we strive to provide students with maximum practical and experiential training, as well as new opportunities. To help promote innovation among students, various initiatives are being implemented for which a fund of Rs. 1 lakh is provided to each teacher.
Students like Viraj Joshi, Anoushka Parekh, Lokakshi Prabhudesai, Manasvini CVTL and Mayuri Godbole were praised by dignitaries for their achievements in extracurricular activities. The program was anchored by Madhura Londhhe and Abhijit Chore.
