New Delhi: South Asian University celebrated the 32nd SAARC Charter Day in its campus with day-long event comprising panel discussion, film screenings and sufi music. MJ Akbar, Minister of State for External Affairs, made the inaugural address as the chief guest of the event.
While stating that SAARC is going through teething problem, the minister observed that South Asian University is functioning far more smoothly than the regional body itself. He said universities have their share of responsibilities and SAU has been focussing on educating the young minds of the region.
Addressing the gathering comprising mostly of ambassadors from the SAARC member nations, dignitaries from ministries and think tanks, students, faculty and professional staff of SAU, the minister spoke at length about the challenge of modernity in the context of South Asia. The definition of modernity, he said, is freedoms – freedom of thoughts, freedom of faith and freedom of gender freedom. Modernity has nothing to do one’s attire, he added.
In her welcome address, Dr. Kavita Sharma, President of SAU, informed the audience about the first phase of construction of the permanent SAU campus going on smoothly and the second phase coming up soon.
The inaugural function was followed by a panel discussion on “Cinema and Society in South Asia” with three eminent panelists - Filmmaker Rahul Roy from India, publisher Kanak Mani Dixit from Nepal and filmmaker Prasanna Vithanage from Sri Lanka. The session was chaired by Prof. Sasanka Perera – Vice President, SAU.

Sufi band Chaar Yaar performed in the afternoon which was followed by screening of two films – Dying Dream from Sri Lanka and Boxing Girls of Kabul from Afghanistan.
