Foundation Day and Mother's Day were organized on the completion of 22 years of AKTU by the Chief Guest Hon'ble Governor and Chancellor Smt. Anandiben Patel. She honored women and inaugurated the North Gate of the IET Campus.

"Now there has been a change in the thinking of women. Less-educated women are also trying to get a good education for their children by working as laborers. So that their children can also lead a good life. India is now moving out of orthodox thinking; women are playing the most important role in this." Hon'ble Governor and Chancellor Mrs. Anandiben Patel said the above on Sunday.

She was speaking on the occasion of the foundation day organized by Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam Technical University on the occasion of 22 years at IET and on the occasion of Mother's Day. On this occasion, she respected and enlightened the audience on the mother's power. She awarded five children of Parmarth Sanstha and five IET student workers who taught them while managing their studies. She also awarded five Anganwadi workers, Asha daughters-in-law, and the women engaged in construction work. She also did baby showers for the pregnant women and at the same time, fed kheer to the babies of pregnant women was done by her. She also unveiled the newly constructed North Gate of the IET Campus.

Tips were given to the audience on women's empowerment!

During her speech, Hon'ble Governor Smt. Anandiben Patel acted as a guardian for women. She told about the proper upbringing of children and said that the habit of becoming self-reliant should be inculcated in children from childhood. Mothers should give the children a rich culture and upbringing so that they do not depend on anyone in the future and should make the house atmosphere appropriate so that there is no bad effect on the children as these children are the future of our nation.

The privilege of becoming a mother is a pleasant one for every woman. Mothers have to be respected and explained to the audience that the aim of the ritual of Anna Prashan is that what nutritious food should be given to a six-month-old child so that they can develop well. At the same time, she said that women should not be discriminated against at home. Whether they do household work or go out to work, they should always be respected. Women and men should become partners of each other, in the spirit of service to the household and the nation. She praised the students of IET and appreciated them for taking out time from their studies and teaching these poor children is really commendable.

Sense of Responsibility

Hon'ble Governor said that still 15 to 17 percent of children are born in homes and not in hospitals. She said that we should do awareness programs for the pregnant women in our respective villages, adopted villages, and nearby areas aware of the delivery in the hospital which is very safe. At the same time, malnourished children and TB patients should fulfill their responsibility by making the rural populace aware of the health of children. She further advised that instead of celebrating birthdays falling at home in hotels, it would be more satisfying if we go to Anganwadi centers and feed the children.

Traditional Sports Meet will be held in the Universities!

On this occasion, the Hon'ble Governor said that we have moved away from our traditional games. Whereas these games gave us a chance to connect with each other. She said that in the coming days, traditional games like Kabaddi, Kho-Kho, Lattu, Gilli Danda, and Langdi would be organized in the universities of the state. In which there will be participation from students to teachers. She said that the Banyan tree should be planted in every university campus as it produces Oxygen round the clock.

Technical Education Minister Shri Ashish Patel, who attended the program as a special guest, threw light on the 22-year journey of AKTU. He said that in these 22 years, the University has been contributing to the development of Technical Education in view of many ups and downs. He said that the university is playing its role in promoting not only technical education but also entrepreneurship, innovation, and startups. He added that it has become the first university in the state to study B. Tech in Hindi and that all the colleges affiliated with this university have taken the initiative to teach at least one student belonging to Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes from their own sources.

Welcoming the guests, Vice-Chancellor Prof. Pradeep Kumar Mishra expressed his gratitude to Hon'ble Governor and Associate Chancellor Mrs. Anandiben Patel. It is said that 22 years ago, the State Government started this university to give a new dimension to the development of technical education in Uttar Pradesh. Fulfilling the objectives of its establishment, this institute is becoming a partner of not only technical education but also a social concern. Prof. Mishra said that the meaning of education is fulfilled only when we can do something for society. The university is trying to channelize its responsibilities in this direction. He said that today on the auspicious occasion of Mother's Day, we should take a pledge to respect all mothers.

The vote of thanks was given by the District Magistrate of Lucknow, Shri Abhishek Prakash. He said that this program organized on Mother's Day and University's Foundation Day will surely inspire us. He thanked the Hon'ble Governor and all the awardees, participants, and dignitaries.
