Vidhya Mandira, second edition launched on Saturday

BENGALURU: The second edition of the two-day mega post-graduation education expo, ‘Vidhya Mandira’, hosted by Public TV in association with Ad6, is being held on Saturday and Sunday at the Government Primary School Ground in Malleswaram.

Public TV chairman H R Ranganath officially inaugurated the education expo by lighting the lamp in the presence of RR Education Institute secretary Kiran H R and Cambridge Group of Institutions chairman D K Mohan on Saturday.

After the formal inauguration, H R Ranganath addressed the gathering and said, “The second edition of Vidhya Mandira has started. Numbers are not important since this is for post-graduation courses. Most graduates go abroad to continue their masters or postgraduate studies because there is more inclination (preference) for universities in other countries than India. If there are 30 students in any university abroad, 20 of them will be Indians. There needs to be a lot of development in our country, especially in the field of science”.

“Today, a new generation is entering educational institutions and is more aggressive. Teachers may struggle to match up to the intelligence and knowledge of these aggressive students. Now, we are in an unusual situation, but we will handle it. Over a period of time, everything will settle and everyone will learn from their mistakes”, Ranganath added.

Another guest at the event, D K Mohan, expressing his happiness on sharing the stage with Ranganath, said, “It is a pleasure to participate in the Public TV programme and we will remain motivated by Ranganath for another year. Public TV is bringing light into the lives of many with the ‘Belaku’ programme. Public TV is also working in the field of education by proving information to students and the parents by hosting such an expo”.

Speaking on Indian students going overseas to purse postgraduation studies, Mohan said the universities in India and Bengaluru are as good as any foreign university in terms of quality standards and facilities in recent years. About 7.5 lakh students are going to foreign countries every year.

“We are providing quality education in all the universities in Karnataka. We are a little behind when compared to the developed countries, but we have also progressed a lot in the education sector”, Mohan added.

Kiran, secretary of R R Education Institute, in his address, said, the education expo is organised by Public TV in association with Ad6. “This is the best platform for students to get information about our educational institutes. Bengaluru is one of the best education hubs”, he pointed out.

H R Ranganath presented momentoes to the guests. About 35+ prestigious educational institutions from different parts of the state are participating under one roof. The expo received a good response from students and educational institutions on the inaugural day on Saturday.

The Vidhya Mandir Expo is a one-stop solution for students and parents to get information on PG and professional courses. The education fair is being held on October 7 and 8 and entry is free for all visitors. The expo will be open from 9.30 am to 6 pm. Several competitions are also being organised during the Vidhya Mandira event, and winners will get attractive prizes.
