Advocating education that leads to nation building
Education not only inculcates scientific temper, but secular values and sensitise students towards social justice. Education has given unity in the diversity of this great nation.
There is something more basic to education than academic learning, such as to serve mankind and help in building the nation. Education must inculcate respect for one’s culture, tradition and customs. Now that primary education has been made a fundamental right, it is for all of us to show that this right is asserted and encompassed, so that all the children between 6 and 14 years receive free education.
