Rus Education in association with the Russian Centre for Science and Culture organised an intellectually stimulating, creative and memorable Sobraniye to induct its new batch of MBBS students for 2020-21.
Rus Education organised the event in association with the Russian Center for Science and Culture. It was graced by H.E Roman Babushkin Deputy Chief of Mission, Embassy of Russian Federation in India who was our chief guest. Guest of Honour, Admiral Robin K Dhowan, PVSM, AVSM, YSM (RETD) and Former Chief of the Naval Staff of Indian Navy, Rector, Mari State University- Mikhail Nikolaevich Shvetsov, Head of the Russian Language Teacher’s Centre, Ms Tatyana Perova, Vice-Rector Mari State University- Ms Irina Petrova, Vice Chairman, Rus Education Air Marshal Dr Pawan Kapoor, AVSM, VSM, & BAR (Retd.), Former Director General Medical Services (IAF), Ms Yana, Deputy Dean Perm State Medical University, senior students of Russian Medical University, and students and parents of the new batch of students.
The session was very insightful and interactive; after all, we introduced students to this big family who would have their backs throughout their medical journey.
Our guests welcomed the students who are commencing their journey in pursuit of their medical dreams. They brought the difficult journey of becoming a doctor to light. They insisted that students braced themselves for the roller coaster ride and lauded the cordial relationship between Russia and India since the time of the Soviet Union, which hasn’t been tainted to date. They spoke highly of the strategic partnership between the counties, their diplomatic relations in times of crises, and how the amiable bond gives us all an excellent opportunity to embrace wonderful educational avenues in Russia.
Students were encouraged to burn the midnight oil as they cruise the way to become leading doctors of tomorrow. Giving students a bird’s view of what the next six years will look like, they insisted students make the most of the time, money, and effort they will invest in a county touted to be the leader of the natural sciences of the world.
H.E Roman Babushkin Deputy Chief of Mission, Embassy of Russian Federation in India who was our chief guest, emphasised the novelty of the situation which has forced us to get together in a video conference, as against what is usually an emotionally charged get-together of students and parents bidding goodbye to their children for Russia. Bringing light to the importance of academics, he said that it is the only thing that has helped knowledge workers to row through these tumultuous times. He further assured that the Russian Education and Cultural centre would do all the needful to facilitate efficient provision of quality education!
They informed us that Russia and India have shared a warm and cordial relationship with India for decades since Independence and that allows the Indian students to blend with everyone else in Russia seamlessly. Medicine is a passion that requires commitment, conscientiousness, diligence, dedication and enthusiasm. We are hopeful that the session was insightful and encouraged the freshers to pursue excellence and trash all standards of mediocrity.
