KOCHI. The Vice President of India, Shri M. Venkaiah Naidu has said that it is imperative that we safeguard and promote equity in higher education and ensure inclusion of women, minorities, and differently abled persons, providing them a barrier free higher education environment. He was addressing the gathering at the Platinum Jubilee Celebrations of Sacred Heart College, Thevara, Kochi, Kerala today.

The Vice President congratulated the institution, its staff and students on the auspicious occasion and expressed hope that the wealth of experience gained by the institution would help them lead many more youngsters towards wisdom & enlightenment.

Shri Naidu applauded the Carmelites of Mary Immaculate (CMI), for the many contributions to education they have made under the enlightened leadership of their founder, the visionary Saint Kuriakose Chavara. The Vice President said that Saint Kuriakose Chavara did not consider holiness as living aloof from the society, but as engaging in the society in a constructive manner.

Stating that education is not only for employment but for enlightenment, enhancement of knowledge and empowerment, Shri Naidu said that education should aim at the holistic development of all faculties of ‘head’, ‘hand’ and ‘heart’. ‘It should provide the knowledge, skills and attitude required for the 21st century’, he added.
