Children sensitised on pollution

He urged students to think on how much smoke their scooter was belching. The speaker also lamented that for some spreading pollution was becoming a fashion statement. Many youngsters use this to show their rebellious streak, he said while urging everyone to do self introspection on the subject.

Seminar on national integration
The Punjabi University National Integration Chair organised a seminar on national integration in collaboration with the State College of Education here, yesterday. Dr Baltej Singh Mann, head of the Chair, said national integration would soon be introduced as a subject at the undergraduate level in the university. He also announced the launching of a countrywide national integration awareness campaign and inter-state youth exchange programme. Dr Kanwarjit Singh, in his presidential address, said the root cause of disintegration was political opportunism, deteriorating socio-economic conditions and mischievous propaganda for vested interests by various bodies. He said religion was a personal affair and should not under any circumstances be mixed with politics and the state should maintain equidistance from all religions.

While inaugurating the seminar, Dr Ajit Singh Bhatia exhorted the youth to come forward to fight the menace of terrorism. Dr Anand Spencer, Associate Professor of Christianity at Punjabi University, observed in his paper that 'inter-faith dialogue' in which people of all faiths could participate would go a long way in strengthening and promoting national integration. Prof Dharam Singh, a Reader at Punjabi University, in his paper 'National integration from Sikh perspective' maintained that India’s religious diversity was its strength. He emphasised the need for better understanding and appreciation of other faiths to build a society where people could live in peace.

Prof G.S. Bajwa, Prof Joginder Singh Rana, Prof Raj Gupta and Prof S.S. Rekhi also expressed their views.

9 teams participate in geography contest

Websites must for education colleges
Vice-chairman of the National Council of Teachers Education (NCTE), S K Thakur, who was here to preside over the annual convocation of the State College of Education, here today, said that it was mandatory for all education colleges to have their own website wherein they have to list the infrastructure available in the college. Interacting with mediapersons, S K Thakur said that it was a cognisable offence if a college of education did not have its own website and a case could be got registered against the defaulting college.

He said that the National Council of Teachers Education kept tabs on the facilities available in the colleges of education and it was a regulatory body for this purpose. Thakur said that he was not in favour of a ban on opening of new colleges of education and said that the mushrooming of such colleges was no cause of concern.
Referring to a query from newspersons, Thakur said that the sole purpose of the education colleges was not to produce B.Ed qualified teachers but also to produce good parents. He contended that the B.Ed graduates could become better parents because they got good training for the purpose.

He further added that he was not against the affiliating universities levying penalties against defaulting colleges of education and said that on the contrary the National Council of Teachers Education (NCTE) was in favour of such punitive measures. Later, Thakur gave away degrees to the graduates of the college.
