Describing Graduation as a ‘bittersweet moment’ that marks as an end of an era and a beginning of a new one, the Vice-President stressed that it is a blissful, unforgettable moment for family, teachers and Alma-mater. Furthermore, VP encouraged the students to continue the pursuit of knowledge and learning through-out life.

Drawing inspiration from the life of Swami Dayanand Saraswati as an epitome of simplicity and virtuosity, Vice-President reflected that Swamiji dedicated his life for catalysing social reforms and disseminating the teaching of the Vedas to the masses, ‘Bharat presently is largely reflection of the dreams of Swamiji’, he added.

The Vice-President urged the students to always respect their teachers, their nation and  take care of their parents. Lamenting on the rise of old age homes, the Vice-President remarked that in our country there should be no need for old age homes as family bonds and relationships are given importance in our society.

The Vice-President called upon the students to always take care of their parents and elders, no matter what their status, their place of residence, how much name, fame and wealth they have earned in life.

God is in the service of one’s parents and elders, he further added.

The Vice-President highlighted that the younger generation should remember Dr. B.R. Ambedkar's words, "You should be Indians first, Indians last, and nothing else but Indians." He questioned how someone claiming Bharatiyata and being a citizen of Bharat could harm our nation's integrity, impede its growth, or discredit its constitutional institutions, whether within or outside the country.

Calling India's young minds "the vanguards of a resurgent Bharat," the Vice-President stated that youth have revolutionized agriculture, creating the world's third-largest startup ecosystem, and "their contribution is such that Bharat@2047 will be a developed nation."

stressing that the world is confronting disruptive technologies like Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, Machine Learning, Green Hydrogen, and Quantum Computing, the Vice-President informed that the government has allocated significant funds—6000 crores for Quantum Computing and 9000 crores for the Green Hydrogen Mission. He also underlined that due to this investment “by 2030 there will be 8 lakh crore investment and nearly 6 lakh jobs would be created”.

Emphasizing “honesty, accountability, transparency, and integrity” as non-negotiable elements of governance today, Vice-President acknowledged that the governance landscape today stands transformed with uniform adherence to law and its enforcement, wherein no one stands exempt. “The situation some people think we are inscrutable by the agency; some people think we are beyond the reach of the law. That scenario has totally collapsed”, he added.




The Vice-President praised India's transformation from the "fragile-five" economies to becoming one of the top five economies globally. He highlighted the projection that by the end of the decade, India is poised to secure the position as the third-largest economic power, surpassing both Japan and Germany.
