Ms. Prachi Agarwal of the Dev Sanskriti University, who had been visiting to Palestine as a member of an international delegation of NSS (National Service Scheme), finally returned to the university. This has been an important achievement for Prachi where she became a part of a 30 member team selected by the Ministry of Youth and Sports, Government of India.
The delegation was introduced to the geographical and cultural elements on the very first day. Later, apart from visiting Technopark and cultural sites, they were also taken to the academic places for visit. The main attraction of the program was the question-answer session and meeting, which satisfies their curiosities. In this conference, youth from both the nations put up various questions to each other, which were resolved by the most fitting person. The main purpose of the program was just to familiarize each one with other’s culture, cultural heritage and other new aspects. Besides discussing the specialties, the shortcomings were also discussed, thus fulfilling the overall objective of the tour. According to the Volunteer, though being a Muslim nation, the delegation received lots of respect and honor in Palestine. People residing there are very creative in agricultural work. They also do researches on how to work in the dry areas.
On the arrival back to the University, the Volunteer was congratulated by the Pro-Vice Chancellor of the university, Dr. Chinmay Pandya. He also encouraged the volunteer to make a small project for cultural exchange of cultures and to make a presentation in sharing her experiences. Dr. Pandya said that the exchange of cultures is the most suitable medium to understand each other.
Dr. Arunesh Parashar, the coordinator of the National Service Scheme in the university, said that the cultural program performed by the student in the delegation at Embassy was excellent. For this excellence, the volunteer was also specially honored by the Director of the NSS. The entire DSVV family congratulates and extends their best wishes for her bright future.
