Schools, colleges play big role in shaping young minds, says Vice President Naidu

Vice President Venkaiah Naidu on February 27, 2018 stressed on the importance of the roles being played by schools and colleges in shaping young minds and said the future of the country is dependent on the strong foundations laid by literacy and education.

“Schools and colleges play a transformational role in shaping young minds, moulding the character and imparting the right value-based education,” the vice president said, adding, “Undoubtedly, the future of the country is dependent on the strong foundations laid by literacy and education.”

While addressing the Golden Jubilee celebrations of Maitreyi College under University of Delhi, the vice president said that apart from making students imbibe strong ethical values, education should help them broaden their vision.

“Apart from making students imbibe strong ethical and moral values, education should help them broaden their vision, sharpen their intellect, inculcate analytical skills, improve creativity, think innovatively and develop an inclusive outlook,” he said.

The vice president urged the student community not to forget their root and said Google should not replace Guru (teacher) in a student’s life.

“I would advise you not to forget your parents, mother tongue, motherland, native place of birth and the Guru, who is instrumental in shaping your character and career,” he said, adding, “Remember Google can provide you information but cannot replace your Guru, who provides you with enlightenment.”

Talking about education of women and their empowerment, the vice president said that Indian women have broken the glass ceiling in many fields and have proved that they are no less than their male counterparts.

“I am glad that Indian women, when given an opportunity, have broken the glass ceiling in many fields and proved that they are no less than their male counterparts,” he said, adding, “I congratulate and commend Maitreyi College management and faculty for their unwavering and persistent dedication in educating and empowering women.”

Established in 1967 and named after Vedic sage Maitreyi, the Maitreyi College under University of Delhi is an all-women’s college, offering various courses in the fields of Science, Arts and Commerce.
