Panaji: Today Goa Governor Mridula Sinha administered a five-pronged pledge to students passing out of Goa University.

According to an IANS report, Governor urged students not to break their marriages over trivial issues, save women in distress, keep off drugs and not send their parents to old age home. 

 

Sinha administered the pledge during her address at the 30th annual convocation of Goa University.

"A marriage is not compulsory, but necessary. Once married, you will not break the relationship for small reasons. You will strive to make the marriage lasting and happy. You will strive for mutual respect towards each other," Sinha said, while also emphasizing on the need for pre-marital counseling for students at the University premises.

She also added, ''Pre-marriage counseling is a necessity now. Youngsters need to know the art of making families work. If they have any doubts they should get answers so that there is longevity in marriages."

 

Continuing with the pledge, Sinha said, "At any time where you see an atrocity against a girl or a woman, you shall strive to rescue her at the cost of your life. This is critical for the protection of the Indian culture. It is a very important pledge and I am happy that everyone is supporting it."

She urged the students not to fall into the prey of drug addiction or allow anyone to get addicted and not to send his or her parents to old age homes.
