Aligarh: Renowned activist, Professor Yogendra Yadav today delivered the fourth lecture in the ‘India as an idea’ series on the topic, ‘India 2.0’ at Kennedy Hall Auditorium, Aligarh Muslim University. The University Club for Short Evening Courses (CSEC) of the Cultural Education Centre (CEC) organized the programme.

While delivering the lecture, Prof Yadav said that to understand what is India 2.0, we need to know that it is a dream and we have to reach there from India 1.0.

“Out of the many things need to be done to reach there, the foremost is to change the definition of patriotism,” said Prof Yadav adding that true patriotism requires the possibility that you are able to say, as an act of civic identification, that I am ashamed of a few things happening in my country in certain respects.

He pointed out that we will only be able to move ahead, when we accept our flaws and open our minds for a change.

Prof Yadav further said that nationalities are inherited by people at the time of their birth. “It is not that we chose to be nationals of one country,” said Prof Yadav. He added that the worst thing, people do as they grow older is that they start following ‘football nationalism’ of loving your team and hating and abusing others.

He further said that the public universities have a great responsibility of taking their students beyond the existing patriotism and train them to love all countries and people.
