Sushmita Sen received an Honorary Doctor Of Letters (D. Litt) degree by Techno India University, West Bengal on Thursday. The former Miss Universe could not attend the ceremony in person as she was down with viral. Sushmita Sen’s father Subir Sen received the degree on her behalf. Sushmita Sen shared glimpses from the ceremony. As she was not present there, she recorded her acceptance speech for the occasion and also shared it on Instagram. Sushmita Sen began her speech with “Namaskar” and then cited the reason of her absence. She said during her speech, “My heartfelt apologies for the voice and, more importantly, for not being able to attend today’s convocation ceremony. I was so looking forward to meeting you all in person. The culprit is a bad viral and so my doctor simply refused to let me travel. Please excuse my absence.” Greeting the chief guest of the evening, Shri Narayana Murthy, Sushmita Sen called herself “a huge fan” of him. Sushmita Sen said, “I’m a huge fan, Sir. I was really looking forward to your convocation speech and, of course, meeting you. It’s back on my wish list.”

Sushmita Sen also shared a heartfelt note for his father at the end of her speech. She said, “Personally, it was my father’s greatest wish that I graduate university with honours. Life, of course, had other plans. So, as I left India at the age of 18 as Miss Universe, I promised Baba that I will do my absolute best to graduate life with honours. Today, my father receiving this honour on behalf of me, moved me to tears. It’s a memory I will cherish forever.”

Sharing the post, Sushmita wrote in the caption, “What an honour!!!! Thank you Techno India University & Shri Narayana Murthy for conferring upon me the Honorary D. Litt. My father Subir Sen who received the Doctorate on my behalf in Kolkata, hasn’t stopped praising all the faculty members of the university & just how well the Convocation ceremony was organised. Thank you all for being so gracious!!!”
