KAMPALA – Makerere University is set to add yet another section with literature written about the history, culture, and future of India.
The decision was arrived at by the University Vice-Chancellor Prof Barnabas Nawangwe with the High Commissioner of India to Uganda Shri Ravi Shankar in a discussion held on Monday 15, July 2019.
The Public Relations Office of Makerere University revealed to this website that Indian history and culture will have an independent corner in MUK’s main library although its exact location is still doubtable.
Mr. Shankar revealed that the section will be well-stocked with literature that will aid students fraternity and the whole academia to learn more about India as a country.
“We had to look for a place where the public can better access the information and data on Indian culture and after several meetings with my colleagues we agreed that Makerere University Main Library was the best place,” he added.
The Commissioner was optimistic that the section will further strengthen the relationship between Makerere and Indian universities through sharing cultural and academic content.
PML Daily has learnt that the Indian corner will provide information about Indian food, way of living, past events, future prospects, music, religion, scholarships and many other central aspects of the Asian country.
The Vice-Chancellor Makerere University Barnabas Nawangwe welcomed the idea with the hope that the initiative will cement the relationship between Makerere University and India.
“Makerere University has benefited from its partnerships with Indian Universities such as Amity University,” he said.
He added that the University has been able to build its IT capacity through partnerships with Indian universities.
