Hyderabad: Osmania University conferred an Honorary Doctorate to Chief Justice of India NV Ramana on Friday for his attainments and immense contribution in the field of law.
Telangana Governor Tamilisai conferred the Honorary Doctorate to CJI NV Ramana in the 82nd convocation of Osmania University in Hyderabad.
Speaking on the occasion, CJI NV Ramana said that another aspect that is key to the sustenance of our democracy is honouring our plurality. Instead of fostering the feeling of mothering, our education should lead us where we can nurture diversity, he said. Touching on globalization, it’s emerging as a threat to local cultural symbols and identities, he added.
It was high time for all institutions to introduce a subject on the basic ideas of the Indian Constitution and governance, irrespective of the stream of learning. The ideas of the Constitution need to be simplified for everyone’s understanding and empowerment, he added.
Social media, television and pop culture glamorize a particular way of life and sadly we are blindly aping the same. Instead of celebrating our distinct heritage and culture, we are allowing our rich identities to be blurred, he said.
OU Vice-Chancellor D Ravinder clarified that only those candidates who had passed the examinations between October 2021 and July 2022 were eligible to receive their PhD degree and gold medals at this convocation.
