F. Patil, former Vice Chancellor, Bharati Vidyapeeth University, Pune were present.
Govind Nihalani said, “Our life is dominated by the image through its omnipresence. Today, the image is considered as one of the most important aspects of communication as it transmits ideas, motivation or a message.”
He congratulated the students and extended his warm wishes for their career, while reminding them that the most important factor of communication through an image is conveying emotion.
Dr. Vishwajeet Kadam inspired the students with his words as he gave a glimpse of the humble beginnings of Bharati Vidyapeeth as a standalone school in 1965 to its inception as a recognized university in 1996. Appreciating the hard work and the dedication of the faculty of the school, he said, “ Photography has a very emotional connect with people. It is a passion that strikes a chord with every individual and the idea to start this institute was to give a direction to this passion.”
