Google can never replace guru and the youth should respect their gurus, said M Venkaiah Naidu, Vice-President and Chancellor, Panjab University at the 67th annual convocation of the university that took place yesterday.
“No one can teach anybody. Within one there is all knowledge, even in a child it is so, and it requires only an awakening, and that much is the role of a teacher,” Naidu said.
He added, “The universities should become centres of excellence, the need of the hour is to reform, perform and transform.”
He said earlier there was a trend of people going abroad. He, however, pointed out he was not against people going abroad, but those days there was not good infrastructure available. “Even if people still want to go abroad, they should go, learn, earn and return,” Naidu said.
