“It is a matter of great honour that countries like the USA and the UK find the services of Indians in the IT field and medicine indispensable in their lives. That shows Indians are very intelligent and find very good positions in these fields in the developed countries,” said Mr Surjit Singh Barnala, Governor, Andhra Pradesh, at Gujranwala Guru Nanak Khalsa College, Ludhiana, on the college’s golden jubilee today.

Mr Surjit Singh Barnala, who was the chief guest, said that about one lakh nurses are needed in the USA and the UK, and if the standard of nursing improves in India, nurses can land good and lucrative jobs in these countries.

He paid tributes to Sant Avtar Singh Mastuanawale, who started about 100 educational institutes for the education of women. He said even his mother received education from one of such institutions at Ferozepore.

Five principals, one teacher and seven old students were honoured on the occasion. Prof P.S. Kapur, member, Khalsa Educational Council, dwelt on the history of Gujranwala Guru Nanak Khalsa College, Ludhiana. Mr Gurdip Singh Sobti, Principal of college, read the report of the college, highlighting achievements of the institution.

Mr Surjit Singh Barnala appreciated the efforts put in by Khalsa institutions in Punjab and other states after the Partition.

Mr Sohinder Jit Singh, acting president, Khalsa Educational Council, proposed a vote of thanks. Others present on the occasion were Mr Gagandeep Singh Barnala MLA, Prof G.S. Dua, Prof K.B.S. Sodhi and Mr T.D. Ranjan.
