On the 43rd foundation day of the Sambalpur University, famous Urdu poet Dr A Mohammad Shahryar was conferred with the Gangadhar National Award on Friday.
Speaking on the occasion, the poet said, “In the context of the present scenario, it is not wise to be escapist rather to accumulate energy and courage to face every situation. This would show way to live life. Literature gives us the ability to explore the vast horizon before us.”
University Vice-Chancellor Arun Kumar Pujari conferred the award to the poet. The university also honoured Odia poet Saubhagyabanta Maharana. The Vice-Chancellor appealed to students and teachers to utilise their knowledge for the benefit of the common men who remain neglected for decades in spite of scientific and technical progress.
