In his opening remarks, the Honourable Vice-Chancellor stated that he is pleased to get associated with the Program.
He said that when teachers work for the system, not only the system but society also will strive to take care of the interests of the teachers. Teachers have to create inquisitiveness and inspire the students to keep thinking beyond classroom learning. To kindle the inquisitiveness, the teacher should be passionate about creating hunger among the learners and making them restless to know more on their own, beyond the classroom and make them learn willingly with passion.
He also stated that we all should work for the system, and in the process, the system will identify the contributors on its own and reward, as everything is available for everybody and advised to contribute towards non-worldly reasons.
He also said there is a dearth of really skilled and highly talented hands in India and the schools. Colleges and Universities should strive and bring out highly talented people so that, in turn, their contribution to society will have avalanche multiplication. Wise minds with values will continuously strengthen the system.
Advised to unlearn the past, learn new skills and updates, read E-books and follow the relevant aspects in National Education Policy 2020.
Honourable Vice-Chancellor gave the mobiles/ tabs provided by the alumni of the UHCS to the parents of the students who are unable to join the online classes for want of gadgets, and everyone appreciated the alumnus for contributing to a good cause.
Through an anecdote, Prof. Y. Sudhakar Reddy, Dean School of Social Sciences, clarified how important it is to update our knowledge and skills, failing how we perish. Updating is a continuous process, and teachers should be ever learners to meet the demands of the fast-growing needs of the students. Teachers need to motivate the students to acquire the skills and talent required for society.

Prof. V. Sudhakar, Retd Professor, EFLU, Hyderabad. Guest of honour and the days speaker has given a holistic insight into the teaching-learning process, the greatness of our Indian education system and values and how the eurocentric western system and corporate is looking at this. Our Indian system looks at it as very holistic, not like a teacher as a just facilitator. Our ancient system contributes towards holistic development imbibing moral, ethical, intellectual requirements. He also stated that one should understand the market economy and also contribute to aesthetic and emotional requirements.
The need of focusing on history was explained and stated that science and religion work together. Input, output model of education was discussed, and changes that occurred after 1990 in India with respect to HR development, Global business and language development were highlighted.
He concluded by saying that teaching is a spiritual and broader process to transmit knowledge. The role of the teacher is that of all-encompassing professional support. He is not just a facilitator like a technological instrument, and the teacher has the role far overreaching moral and ethical domains.
