On the surface of life, education is a fruit of School Tree. All of us have to take the taste of this unique Fruit, Education seeks to nurture ethical development, inculcating the values, attitudes and skills required for living in harmony with oneself and with others including nature. It embodies personality development with the qualities of love, hope and courage. It encompasses respect for human rights, justice, tolerance, co-operation, social responsibility and respect for cultural diversity.
Through the nib of this pen I would like to say our parents and teachers that each child has an innate capacity for goodness, which needs to be nurtured and formed into character. At the critical juncture, there is a strong need to negate the undesirable impacts of changes and inculcate the right attitudes and behavior in our children. They need to be trained to view life holistically and creatively face challenges in life with a positive attitude, develop skills in responding to emergencies, promote social and environmental awareness and live a better and elevated life through self-actualization. I hope that teachers and parents will endeavor to imbibe in them values like teamwork for a global society and promote the development of various life-skills to take the challenges and adversities of life and forge ahead to take themselves, their Society and the Country to new Heights.
