Indians are adept at adapting the new environment. The Indian philosophy proclaims unity in diversity, he said and urged alumni to spread the fragrance of Indianness all over the globe.

“Man has come from bliss, will live in bliss and will go to bliss. University, Universe and Universal man are interwoven as zero, God and Infinity. Universalism is the beauty of Indian philosophy and that is more relevant in present-day world,” the Governor said.
