Remarks at the 2001 Convocation Dr. B.R. Ambedkar Open University on the occasion of the receipt of an Honorary Doctorate (D.Litt) Hyderabad, India, 25 November 2001 by Dr. H. Ian Macdonald, Chairman The Commonwealth of Learning // The honour which you have conferred on me today is greatly appreciated but also undeserved - at least in contrast to those who have worked so hard for the degrees which have been awarded this afternoon. At any time, the completion of a course of university studies demands dedication, determination and devotion. To do so by the distance mode also requires a certain degree of self-sacrifice, and I want to salute my fellow graduates on their accomplishments which we celebrate together on this happy occasion. May I also pay tribute to the distinction and growing reputation of this University with which I am proud to be associated as an honorary doctor. India has been a pioneer in the field of distance education and open learning, and your University, as the first such institution of its kind in India, is among the leaders to which we, in the Commonwealth of Learning, look for inspiration.
