Students must inculcate integrity and discipline and must pay back to the society which shaped them, Delhi University Vice Chancellor Dinesh Singh said here Sunday.
Addressing the second year convocation of the Indraprastha Institute of Information Technology-Delhi (IIIT-D), Singh said: "You (students) must have integrity and you must adhere to discipline."
Singh narrated the examples of cricketer Sunil Gavaskar and actor Amitabh Bachchan, saying their great adherence to inner belief helped them rise and become celebrities.
He also asked the students to give back to society in whatever way possible. "Do not ever think you (students) have made it on your own. Pay your debt to society, which shaped you."
A total of 79 B-Tech and M-Tech students were awarded degrees at the second convocation of IIIT-D, an information technology institute, set up by the Delhi government.
