On the occasion of 125th birth anniversary of Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar, the Shivaji University, Kolhapur (SUK) will pay tribute in a unique way. The university has arranged as many as 125 lectures, each in 125 colleges. Each lecture will try to focus on different aspects of Ambedkar's life. The SUK even considered compiling each lecture and print it for future reference.
According to the SUK officials, this event will be conducted on March 11 across selected colleges in Sangli, Satara and Kolhapur districts. The preparations regarding the same have already been done, a university official said.
Devanand Shinde, SUK vice-chancellor said that this will be a tribute to Ambedkar and that university is proud to organise such event.
A SUK official said that since the summer exams this year are beginning early in mid-March, it will not be possible for students or colleges to arrange any event on April 14, the birth anniversary of Ambedkar. So, the lecture series is being conducted a month earlier in all colleges, so that the students can attend the event.
Instructions regarding the lecture have already been passed on and experts who will deliver the lecture will make sure that all aspects of Ambedkar's life are covered so that it remains new for students, the official added.
