“It is through the thinking process that new concepts are introduced. To express these concepts, the Nagpur Municipal Corporation is providing a platform for the students through the ‘Innovation Festival’. This is our attempt to globally bring selected concepts through taken during the Innovation Festival. Even if at least one person earns a name worldwide, the purpose of this initiative will be achieved”, Mayor Nanda Jichkar was speaking during the Mayor Innovation Council held at Suresh Bhatt Auditorium on Thursday.
Dr. Rashtrasant Tukadji Maharaj Nagpur University Vice-Chancellor Siddharth Vinayak Kane, Director of Inspection Rakesh Kumar, Municipal Health Chairman Virendra Kukreja, Additional Commissioner of the Corporation Aziz Shaikh, former MLA and Chairman of the Media Public Service Foundation, Mohan Mate, Coordinator of Mayor Innovation Council. Prashant Kadu, Member of the Mayor Innovation Council, Dr. Sandhya Dabhe, Mrs. Madha, Director, Zulelal Institute of Technology and other dignitaries were prominently present at the occasion.
Speaking further, Mayor Nanda Jichkar said, “The energy of the students should go in a positive direction.” Efforts should be made to bring the concepts that come into our heads to the truth. The government also promotes such concepts. There must be an attempt to find something new rather than being content with what it is. It is important to change our mindset.
â€œThe day when the mindset changes, many new concepts will be bornâ€, she said. Mayor Nanda Jichkar also informed that a web site will be created for the students to know about different areas for the occasion of Innovation.
