Message from Convocation Speaker


Kailash Satyarthi
Nobel Peace Laureate


My dear friends from Daffodil International University!

Thank you for inviting me to be the Convocation Speaker of the 9th Convocation of Daffodil International University.

I am eagerly waiting to come and see you. I am thrilled and excited about visiting your beautiful country and the green campus of Daffodil International University.

A convocation is an important event in the life of graduating students. The knowledge and skills students have acquired from this university will certainly help them to build their careers and contribute to the progress of Bangladesh. We will all strive to make this world a better place for peaceful living.

Dear friends, I am thankful to the President of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh and the Chancellor of Daffodil International University, His Excellency Mohammad Abdul Hamid and in addition, I am thankful to the founder of Daffodil International University Dr. Md. Sabur Khan for inviting me.

I would like to recall a few lines from a Bangali poem of Kazi Nazrul Islam, on this auspicious occasion:

“বল বীর,
বল উন্নত মম শির!
শির নেহারি আমারি নতশির
ওই শিখর হিমাদ্রির!’’

Let us all dedicate ourselves to the service of suffering humanity.
Thank you.
