Sir Richard J Roberts, Nobel laureate in medical science said that failing is very important in life. If you fail, you can come to success.
Speaking as a convocation speaker at the 22nd Convocation of North South University (NSU) on Wednesday, Sir Richard said, “I was interested in physics. I have studied a lot in this regard. I also traveled to different countries. We have identified various problems there. Despite failing to solve it, I was not disappointed. Finally, I succeeded in it. As a result, it also helped me in winning Nobel.”
He also said, “The goal of our life is fixed from the family. Therefore, it is not possible to develop as their desires or dreams are suppressed. It is not possible to innovate or invent something new. Life passes away with this kind of frustration. So, all children and young people will have to awaken dreams. Only then will there be many Nobel Laureates in Bangladesh.”
Mentioning Bangladesh students are very meritorious, Sir Richard said, “I have the experience working with Bangladeshi students. They are very talented and can solve very big problems. So, if the right education can be given to the next generation, then they will be able to take Bangladesh to a better country.”
Attending as the chief guest at NSU’s convocation, Education Minister Dipu Moni said, “Our main strength is the youngsters, they will lead the country ahead. We have to move ahead with our history and tradition. The history of the Liberation War and the contributions of the Father of the nation must be taught at the university.”
Education Minister said, “Many private universities are playing an important role to lead the country. Again, many people are violating the law. Universities cannot run only for business, everyone must obey the law.”
In the meantime, the Education Minister urged all the North South University to remain vigilant from militants and drugs
