INTRODUCTION : Apeejay Stya University International Conference
The Apeejay Stya University has been established under the Haryana Private Universities (Amend- ment) Act 2010 vide Haryana Government Gazette (Extra) dated 26 April 2010. The University Grants Commission has empowered the University to award degrees under section 2(f) of UGC Act 1956.
The University owes its very existence to its founder chancellor Dr. Stya Paul, an eminent industrialist, educationist, philanthropist and freedom fighter who provided the foundation and inspiration to establish the Apeejay Education Society and the University as trusted symbols of excellence, knowledge and quality.
Each program and course has been carefully designed and vetted by an advisory board of academicians, industry experts and our excellent faculties, who further exercise the freedom to change content on regular basis in sync with the changing dynamics of the world around.
The University’s focus on research enables the faculty and students to keep pace with the industry. It aims to bring about transformation of the society through value based education by blending together technology and re- search through a philosophy of ’Liberal Arts’ approach to education.
An eye for an eye will make the whole world blind, said the Father of our Nation, Mahatma Gandhi. Violence and anger bring no benefit but are more deterrents to the progress of a nation /society. Exist- ence of non-violence is a pre-requisite for existence of peace.
It is well known that a significant enabling factor for sustainable development is peace. But unfortunately, maintaining peace is getting slightly more complex than ever before due to changing ideologies, political system and people’s ever changing attitudes and approach.
At the same time, peace represents good human and social development which when combined with harmonious, holistic and healthy society, makes people live in peace and comfort.
India which is a land of sages, gurus and leaders who advocated peaceful, healthy and harmonious society had also suggested ways and means of creating such a society. The country has been blessed by great reformers like Swami Dayanand Saraswati, Yogi Aurobindo, Swami Vivekananda, Mahatma Gandhi and Rabindra Nath Tagore who taught and spread to the world, the philosophy of peace and harmony.
However, in the present day the world is witnessing violence, terrorism, minor and major wars, conflicts related to borders of the nations, problems of migrants who are thrown out of their own country due to many of these conflicts and so many such traumatic events that are affecting the peace of people at large in a very significant manner.
Many causes could be advanced for this unsavory and undesirable negative situation. One that is advanced usually is the erosion of value system in the society and of course in the global arena too. Only way to overcome these negative factors is perhaps to build a society where people are prudent, healthy, happy and live a meaningful and peaceful life.
In order to build a prosperous society, not only we need prudent citizens but also ensure they live peacefully and live happy. Apeejay Stya University, keeping in mind its vision and mission of man making and nation building, too aims at building a harmonious, peaceful and prudent society; in which all sections of society, irrespective of their socio-economic background live peacefully, prudentially en- suring prosperity. Through this conference, ASU hopes to accomplish the goal of peace, prudence and prosperity.
