Creative minds, skillful hands and artistic hearts: The vice president’s vision of an empowered India

Vice President M. Venkaiah Naidu on February 17, 2018 stressed on the importance of teaching varied and rich learning experiences to students by educational institutes and said educational institutions must provide varied and rich learning experiences to students.

Educational institutions must provide varied and rich learning experiences to students,” the vice president said, adding, “Educational managers, teachers and researchers should help build a system that has ‘equity’ and ‘quality’ as the two guiding principles.”

While addressing the Platinum Jubilee Celebration of Rouzathul Uloom Association at Farook College in Kerala, the vice president said that there is a need to lay a strong foundation in the early years of schooling in order to become lifelong learners.

“What is important is the ability to be curious, to observe, analyze, synthesize, draw conclusion, test hypothesis, and advance continuously the frontiers of knowledge,” he said.

Saying that education liberates people from dependence, he said if the access to good education will not expand, then there will be wide gaps between different sections of society.

“Education is an emancipatory tool and it liberates people from dependence, it restores self-confidence and enhances self-esteem,” he said, adding, “If we don’t expand access to good education, we shall have widening gaps between different sections of our society which might negate economic progress.”

Saying that there is a need to educate women to empower society, he said that there is also a need to further enrich the human resource in the county.

“We have creative minds, skillful hands and artistic hearts in our society. We have to further enrich this human resource,” he said, adding, “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.”
