Nation’s Teacher Warrior and a change maker, Sonam Wangchuk has been awarded an honorary D. Litt Degree by the Symbiosis International (Deemed University), Maharashtra on October 23, 2018.
The Ladakh-based engineer-turned-educationist was awarded in recognition of his extraordinary work as an innovator and educationist.
Also present at the occasion was President Ram Nath Kovind as the Chief Guest.
After accepting the degree, Mr. Wangchuk, the real life 'Phunsukh Wangdu' of the Aamir Khan-starrer film “3 Idiots”, said he has not done anything big or special. "I did what humanity demands people to do."
The teacher warrior, Mr. Wangchuk had set up the Students' Educational and Cultural Movement of Ladakh (SECMOL). SECMOL is a non-traditional school responsible for educational reform in the Ladakh region of Jammu and Kashmir. He has been working towards making the best use of solar energy; as a result he’s been successful in creating artificial glaciers to address the problem of water scarcity.
He also said that he decided to take a step when he saw students failing in the remote regions of Ladakh.
"For me, my house was on fire and young brothers and sisters were in distress. So when your house is on fire, there is nothing special in throwing water on it, it is your duty, and if you don't do it, that is surprising," he added.
A Man of Humility. A Man for Humanity. We salute Mr. Sonam Wangchuk and his efforts.
