A graduate from Nawabpet mandal of Mahabubnagar was the star of the show at the 15th convocation ceremony of University of Hyderabad held at the Brahma Kumaris Shanti Sarovar, Global Peace Auditorium on Tuesday.

A Bharathi, who received a gold medal in the 5-year Integrated Master’s programme in Telugu, is the first one from her village to pursue higher education in a university. However, Bharathi wants to pursue higher studies and become a politician. “I am extremely proud. I want to study further, get a good job and settle down in life. But my dream is to become a politician and work for poor,” stated Bharathi. 

As many as 140 PhDs and 95 gold medals were awarded by governor ESL Narasimhan, the chief rector of the university and was the guest of honour. Honorary Doctorates were awarded KG Subramanyan, Prof Michael Victor Berry, Prof Andre Beteille, Prof Satish C Maheshwari, and activist Aruna Roy in absentia.

During the address, T V Ramakrishnan, professor emeritus, Banaras Hindu University said, “This swadhyaya may help you accept the society, make you a rebel or it may make you see futility. Whatever it does, it will affect you strongly”.  Ramakrishna Ramaswamy, vice chancellor of UoH, presented a report on the university. H Hanumantha Rao, chancellor, UoH presided over the convocation.
