PANJIM: Goa Governor and Chancellor of Goa University, Mridula Sinha, emphasised on setting up of a pre-wedding counseling centre in Goa University, the lone varsity in the State. 

“There is a need to set up a pre-marriage counseling centre for the youth in GU. The youth should know the art of how to run a family. If they have any questions related to marriage, they can be answered at the counseling centre and this will help them lead a successful married life,” she said addressing the 31st convocation of the GU on Saturday. 

Sinha, in her speech delivered in Hindi, asked students present at the convocation ceremony to make five promises by raising their hands. The first of these was that students will not send their parents to old age homes while the second was on marital relationship. “A marriage is not mandatory, but necessary. Once married, you will not break the relationship on trivial matters. You will strive to make the marriage long lasting and happy. You will strive for mutual respect for each other,” she said. She also appealed to the youth to fight injustice meted out to women.

Sinha, who is an ambassador of the Swachch Bharat campaign, also urged students not to litter and to prevent others from doing that. In other advice to students, she asked them not to fall prey to addiction. The Governor has sought these promises for students at every convocation and youth event. 

She, however, raised concern on how ancient Indian culture and traditions were being overpowered by European culture, while urging citizens to protect their culture which is unique from other countries.
