Sri Sunil Kant Munjal Conferred D.Litt Degree

In the history of India, there is no question of the fact that we have had notable educators and educationists; but there are enormous challenges in the realm of education today. “The reach is not enough and the mass of the reach is not working to quality expectation. We have to hone in on the realities of what is around us” said Mr. Sunil Kant Munjal, Joint Managing Director of Hero Moto Corp, the world’s largest motorcycle manufacturing company at SRM University.

At a glittering ceremony at its Kattankulathur Campus, SRM University conferred the Doctor of Literature (Honoris Causa), on Mr. Munjal. He was honored with the D.Litt degree for his contribution to education, business and humanity at a Special Convocation.

“We need to generate some one million jobs every month for the next 15 years; we also know that there are 250 million people who do not have two meals a day. We have to make the difference to reach out” the top industrialist said while delivering his acceptance speech. “Forty one per cent of Indian economy is external economy. We must continue to strengthen the local economy so that India can go forward”, he added. “We need to produce thousands of new leaders every year not just in sciences and technology but also in the liberal arts”, he said. “We need to be research thinkers, design thinkers and innovators” he added.

A forward looking thinker who goes beyond narrow confines of his group, Mr. Munjal has been credited with ideas and innovation that continues to benefit India. Seen as one of those industrial icons of the country who actively pushed for the acceleration of India’s economic reforms, Mr. Munjal consistently played a major role in evolving a mutually beneficial partnership between government and industry.

Mr. Munjal’s interest goes much beyond business and industry—he has placed education as one of his high priorities in the hope that the youth of India will soon push the country into a superpower of knowledge. Mr. Munjal has left a mark in the Indian educational map through the BML Educorp Services, a not-for-profit university initiative, and being the intellectual and guiding force of the BML Munjal University.

“ It is a high honor for SRM University to confer the D.Litt on such a multi-faceted personality who has contributed not only to Indian industry and business but also to the cause of socio-economic development of the country as a whole”, said the Vice Chancellor of SRM University, Prof. Prabir Bagchi.

The Founder Chancellor of SRM Educational group, Dr. T.R. Paarivendhar presided over the Special Convocation. “We are enthused and encouraged in having the presence of Mr. Munjal. To students these kinds of personalities need to be introduced for them to be inspired and motivated. The interest of becoming an entrepreneur begins now” the Founder Chancellor said in his welcome address.

Sixth International Groundwater Conference (IGWC 2015) SRM University

Stressing that groundwater is going to be a major source for humanity and that managing groundwater resources is important to avoid conflict over water, Dr. M.S. Swaminathan, Emeritus Chairman, Chief Mentor and Founder of the M.S. Swaminathan Research Foundation said it is necessary to pay close attention to increasing supply, demand management and controlling pollution of groundwater.

“ There is water-water everywhere but not a drop to drink… future wars may come from a war for water” he said delivering the Chief Guest Address at the Sixth International Groundwater Conference (IGWC 2015) organized by Department of Civil Engineering, SRM University, Kattankulathur. The conference is being attended by more than 250 delegates including many from the West and the Asia Pacific.

“Mandatory water harvesting has certainly helped and this has to become a part of our culture. The issue is not just supply augmentation but also one of demand management, especially in the agriculture sector where over 70 percent of groundwater is used for irrigation”, the Father of India’s Green Revolution said pointing out the example of Israel in which there was complete need based computerized irrigation. “That kind of sophistication we have not achieved yet in India”, he added.

Staying on the theme of the criticality of groundwater resources, the Founder Chancellor of SRM Group of Educational Institutions, Dr. T.R. Paarivendhar maintained that “If at all there is to be a Third World War, it is going to be over water”. The Founder Chancellor pointed out to the importance of water requirements. “On one hand we have heavy rains and on the other we have droughts. This has to be managed and striking the balance is a challenge” he said. “Unless water is properly stored, the problem of groundwater will always remain”, he added

The conference was focused on themes such as assessment of Groundwater Resources and Aquifer characterization; groundwater recharge estimation procedures and issues; impact of Climate Change on freshwater resources & agriculture; groundwater pollution and its remedial measures; flow and Mass Transport Models in the assessment management of groundwater resources and groundwater management policies.
