ICCR celebrates International Students’ Day

ICCR celebrates International Students’ Day
In keeping with its well-established tradition of commemorating the birth of anniversary of its Founder-President Maulana Abul Kalam Azad, as the International Students’ Day, the Bengaluru Regional Office of the ICCR (Indian Council for Cultural Relations) organized a call on H.E. Vajubhai Rudabhai Vala, Hon’ble Governor of the State of Karnataka, by a small, but representative group of international students. The group comprised of 38 students from 22 countries, studying in 21 colleges in Bengaluru. In his opening remarks, Shri. N. Balasubramaniyan, who assumed charge as the Regional Director a little over a week ago, drove home to the students, the importance of the occasion, when for the first time in history, the student group could call on and interact informally with the Hon’ble Governor. He then invited the students to share their experiences of staying and studying in India with the Hon’ble Governor and address any queries they may have to him. The Governor, in his address, stressed the importance of unity in diversity and how countries of the world could work together and progress jointly, as contrasted to working separately in wilderness. He urged the international students to carry this message to their respective countries and strive to work together for common progress. The international students were all positive in their observations and conveyed their thanks to ICCR, the Government of India and the State Government for providing an enabling environment for their stay and study in India. On behalf of the students, Ms. Raushan Imad, from the Bengaluru chapter of the Federation of International Students Association conveyed the vote of thanks.
