Dr Thampu delivers 1st lecture on Individual, Family and Society, says one should be committed to their own growth

Mar 15, 2015 12:57 PM IST India India

New Delhi: The Principal of St Stephen's College Dr Valson Thampu delivered the first lecture on Citizen Empowerment and Cultural Richness on Saturday. The topic of discussion was Individual, Family and Society.

Dr Thampu stressed on the fact that we need to make our growth the most important thing in life. "It is something that bridges the gap between who you are and what you can become, but we need to clear certain stumbling blocks that come on our way like - laziness, cowardice and leading a purposeless life", he said.

"The greater the difficulty the greater is the happiness," Dr Thampu said.

Dr Thampu interacted with students and answered their queries on various issues related to life and struggles and an individual's perception about it.

In a first of its kind initiative in India, Network18 and St Stephen's college have joined hands to offer a course that promotes education for all. The citizenship and cultural enrichment course is aimed at harnessing the educational resources of the media fraternity.

Under the course, St Stephen's College will hold weekly classes conducted by its regular faculty and distinguished alumni including top serving and retired judges, bureaucrats and renowned academicians.

The lecture content will be hosted across the digital and social media platforms of Network18 (ibnlive.com) and St Stephen's College (www.ststephens.edu).
