India stands for inclusive growth and providing human resources to the world.India registered a quantum leap when the world economy shackled-he said.
Naidu said that education is the key to development.He underscored the need of girls’ education,especially in backward communities.
“Education is an emancipatory tool. It liberates us from dependence, restores self-confidence and enhances self-
esteem.All of you, the management, the teachers and the students are engaged in this exciting voyage of discovery
called teaching and learning. The process of learning new things goes on throughout life. Some of it is structured
but most of it is unstructured.”-Naidu said.
Quoting texts from Bhagavad Gita and Quran, Naidu underscored the extreme necessity of of education.
“All religious traditions have emphasized the value of knowledge and learning. In fact, the first word of the Holy Quran is “Iqra” or “Read” and one of the prayers is “O My Lord, advance me in knowledge”. The Bhagavad Gita also proclaims “Nahi Gnanena Sadrusham Pavitram Iha Vidyate”. There is nothing in this world which is purer than knowledge.”
What is important is the ability to be curious, to observe,analyze, synthesize, draw conclusion, test hypothesis,
and advance continuously the frontiers of knowledge-the Vice President said.
“We have creative minds, skillful hands and artistic hearts in our society.We have to further enrich this human resource. In fact,this is the challenge before us today. We know that 65% of our country’s population is below 35 years of age. If
we can impart the right kind of education, this can be a huge demographic dividend for the country.”
Google is not a substitute for Guru-said the VP amid a loud cheer from the audience that includes students,faculties,alumni, and management members.
“Google is important,But Guru is more important.Google can never replace Guru.”
He said ancient India had a great tradition and heritage. What modern science talks today was explained in Ramayana centuries ,earlier. Pushpaka Vimana and asthras (modern missiles) were depicted in Ramayana.
Public-private participation is necessary to achieve the goal of education and employment.For this,people’s mindset should change,Government alone can’t provide employment.”
