The experience during the COVID-19 pandemic has given students a fresh perspective on life and prepared them better for facing its vagaries in the future, Higher Education Secretary Amit Khare said on Friday.

“The experience of the COVID-19 pandemic would have given students a fresh perspective to life and prepared them better for facing its vagaries in future. I urge students to emerge not as ‘job seekers’ but as ‘job givers’, to promote the individual capability of each student, teach them to think, equip them with the skills required to face the 21st century and global leaders, while imparting values rooted in Indian culture,” Khare said at the convocation ceremony of Dayalbagh Educational Institution, Agra.

Today you are joining this rank of educated intellectuals, the young enlightened Indians who will lead the world,” he added.
