What a great honour and privilege it was to return to Loughborough University on 13 September and receive an Honorary Doctor of Letters (Hon DLitt) for outstanding contribution to journalism and the promotion of equality.

When I came to study Industrial Engineering from India, I could never have imagined this. I have such fond memories of Loughborough, having been elected president of the Student’s Union soon after I arrived. The University has grown and the changes to the campus are quite astonishing. Facilities for the students and the Union are now very different and I cannot imagine the present day Union being racked with disputes over the choice of bands invited to perform at the Saturday night dance.
