CHENNAI: Tamil Nadu Governor K Rosaiah today stressed on the importance of knowledge creation and making universities research-oriented and asked Vice-Chancellors to take steps in this regard.

"Knowledge is the prime mover of prosperity and power. Knowledge creation and making universities research oriented should be your 'Taraka Mantra' (intention)," he said at a conference of Vice-Chancellors of various universities here.

Converting the abundant human capital into an intellectual capital was the need of the hour, he said, appealing to the university heads to focus their efforts on these lines. He also asked them to inculcate human values and discipline among students.

Recalling Prime Minister Narendra Modi's lines, Rosaiah said the real identity of India should reach the world.

"Making the youth productive, talented, developing entrepreneur skills and research-oriented education should be the prime agenda of the higher education institutions and universities," he added.
