Dr. (Prof.) Balvinder Shukla, vice chancellor of Amity University Uttar Pradesh, addressed the group and stated, “Without understanding the societal and nation’s needs, the youth cannot be called educated. The youth is the future of the country, therefore, they must work hard towards nation building, irrespective of the career path they choose. We, as Indians, must take pride in our rich cultural heritage by aiming to bring back the lost glory of India in the next 25 years. Just getting educational degrees is not enough but how that degree can be used to contribute towards the development of the country, that should be the primary objective of each and every student of Amity.”
