Dehradun, 26 Jan: The 74th Republic Day was celebrated with great enthusiasm in Graphic Era Group of Institutions.
President Dr Kamal Ghanshala hoisted the flag at Graphic Era Deemed University and took the salute of a parade by NCC and NSS cadets. Professor Ghanshala said that the country’s higher educational institutions like Graphic Era have made a great contribution to India’s economic, social and scientific progress. Today, India comes in the category of developed countries, while many countries that got freedom at the same time remain far behind. The main reason for this is the farsightedness of the constitution makers. Graphic Era is known for its industry oriented curriculum and use of state of the art technology. The responsibility of Graphic Era has increased from national level to the global level. Being a university, it also has a social responsibility which it has always borne. As part of this, the Graphic Era Group has recently decided to bear the entire cost of the education of the Joshimath disaster affected children, from the first semester till the degree.
Vice Chairperson of Graphic Era Group of Institutions, Rakhi Ghanshala inspected the parade at Graphic Era Hill University held by the NCC women’s wing and hoisted the flag.
She said that it is a matter of great pride that, through the powers and ideas enshrined in the Indian Constitution, every citizen is economically, socially and culturally independent. She said that the main reason for the progress of the country is the continuous contribution of institutions working in the field of education and research. On the occasion, she pledged to take the Graphic Era Group of Institutions to the pinnacle of education and research.
Appreciating the grand parade of NCC and NSS cadets at Graphic Era Deemed University, Professor Dr Kamal Ghanshala announced an incentive amount of Rs 1.5 lakh. Rakhee Ghanshala announced a reward of Rs 50,000 for the cadets.
