Nalanda University to start 2 new courses: Amartya Sen

Following successful start of academic activities at the 'resurrected' Nalanda University (NU) with two streams of postgraduate courses in ecology and environment and historical studies in September this year, varsity's first chancellor Amartya Sen said here on 15th October that NU was planning to start two new schools - of economics and management studies and public healthcare - from the next academic session.

Addressing mediapersons at the city airport, after his visit to the NU on Tuesday, Sen said systematic education and public healthcare were two sectors that had remained neglected. He said the PG course in public healthcare will focus on improving the healthcare sector.Stating it was 'difficult' to create the atmosphere that prevailed in the ancient Nalanda University over 800 years ago before its destruction, he said the start was nonetheless good.He praised Gopa Sabharwal, the varsity's VC who too was present on the occasion, for her efforts. He also met CM Jitan Ram Manjhi and former CM Nitish Kumar during his visit to the state.

Speaking about his experience of interaction with the faculty and students of the university, Sen said he felt nostalgic while talking to them as it made him remember his own student life. He said the atmosphere was warm and dynamic in the university.

Sen, who was awarded Nobel Prize for economics in 1998 for his work in welfare economics, said the School of Ecology and Environment Studies was started keeping in view the challenges before Bihar in particular and India in general, posed by the environmental issues.He said the issues were not limited to the macro concept of global warming but involved more sensitive 'local' issues, including pollution and hydrology.
