New Delhi, December 15: Parul University, one of the prominent educational institutions for higher studies has recently hosted the I.I.M.U.N (International Indian Movement to Unite Nations) Vadodara Conclave featuring senior members of the defence fraternity to inspire the young audience to realize their potential and harness their power towards the betterment of the nation. The event was graced by Vice Admiral Dinesh Tripathi, Air Marshal Vikram Singh, Lieutenant General HS Kahlon, and several prominent personalities including Gaur Gopal Das, and Bhaichung Bhutia, among many others.
The conclave witnessed intellectual panel discussions with three of the most decorated serving officers from the Indian Army, Indian Air Force and Indian Navy engaging in impactful conversations to inspire the 15,000 young audiences and provide them with valuable advice. Guiding them on lines of valour, courage and competence, Lt. General HS Kahlon talked about the core of a person’s being and said, “The kind of human being a person is going to be; the kind of contribution a person makes to the society, that’s what the future of India is going to be.”
Echoing his sentiments when asked what India means to him, Air Marshal Vikram Singh said, “For the civilians, India is India; but for some of us working in armed forces, India is a feeling and we feel it more than other people, and that’s something you take away when you work in the armed forces.” Vice Admiral Dinesh Tripathi gave an inspiring answer to the same question; he said, “The India you want to see in the future, it’s right in front of you. The students, the energy, and the power of youth.”
