Whistling Teal | Shiv Nadar University

Whistling Teal

A summer to remember! That's what it is going to be for the graduating Class of 2019, as they step into the world outside and gear up to take on the challenges that lie ahead. The place they have called their second home for the past four years, has prepared them well. They feel calm, composed, and ready to the life that lies ahead, whether it's the first job or a new higher education pursuit.

Today is going to stay fresh in their young hearts and minds, as they go through a whirlwind of emotions - the happiness, pride, and gratitude mixed with a tinge of sadness that accompanies knowing this is going to be their last day as a student here (at SNU campus). The reminiscence of the times spent at this campus is going to make the goodbyes difficult. At the same time, their hearts shall be filled with an excitement of the 'New' that awaits.

The current issue of Whistling Teal is dedicated to this day - the Fifth Convocation Ceremony of Shiv Nadar University, 18 May 2019. The ceremony commemorates the graduation of more than 500 students, largest ever, to receive their Doctoral, Master's and Bachelor's degrees, in Engineering, Natural Sciences, Humanities & Social Sciences, and Business. The Chief Guest for the occasion is Mr. Arun Sarin, KBE, former CEO of Vodafone, and current board member of Cisco, Accenture and Charles Schwab and a Silicon Valley investor; and the Special Guest is Dr. Isher Ahluwalia, a distinguished economist, a Padma Bhushan awardee and Chairperson, Board of Governors, the Indian Council for Research on International Economic Relations. Know more about the guests of honor in the current edition.

This year, the University is also conferring Honorary Doctorates to four eminent global personalities for commendable contributions in their respective fields: globally renowned cardiologist, Dr. Ashok Seth; eminent diplomat, politician and businessman, Lord Charles Powell; distinguished Indian space scientist, Dr. Krishnaswamy Kasturirangan; and Chairman, President, and CEO of DXC Technology, Mr. Mike Lawrie. Read about them inside.

A keeper's edition, this Whistling Teal, also brings to you 'Memorabilia of Class of 2019' - a collection of pictures, words, and memories. An extension to the Memorabilia, Faculty Reminisces is a compilation of faculty recollecting the times spent with the graduating Class. Know more about the future path of graduating Class of 2019 in the Realizing Dreams section.

And on this day, as the Class of 2019 walks the stage, with hope in heart and spring in steps, they shall be reminded in years to come, how satisfying and fulfilling learning can be. And they shall also be reminded of the lines from one of the greatest books of all times, E.R. Braithwaite's To Sir, With Love -
“It is our duty to rebel. Not to destroy, but to build upon the grounds laid before us.”
