When Prince Kapoor received his much-awaited degree certificate from the Delhi University on Saturday, he was in for the biggest surprise of his life. While the university had named him correctly in English,in Hindi his name has been printed as Rajkumar Kapoor.
‚ÄúI got my certificate, and when I looked at it, I was surprised to see my name. They seem to have translated my name from English to Hindi.So ‚ÄòPrince‚Äô became ‚ÄòRajkumar‚Äô,‚Äù¬†the 25 year old who had graduate at School of Open Learning in 2015 told Hindustan Times.
‚ÄúI don‚Äôt understand how it could have happened. You don‚Äôt translate names. I don‚Äôt know what to do now,‚Äù said Harvinder Kapoor, Prince‚Äôs father.
‚ÄúThis happens sometimes. It happens in regular colleges too. When you have to issue as many as 400,000 certificates, one or two errors are possible. And the names are written by hand, and it is first written in English and then in Hindi, so it must be just a human error. They can just apply for a correction and they will be issued a corrected certificate‚Äù said CS Dubey who is Director of Distance Education.
‚ÄúIt is a little difficult, having to go back and forth to get this fixed. But in the future, when I apply for jobs and all that, it will be a bigger problem, if I don‚Äôt get it fixed. So I will have to do it,‚Äù said Prince.
