Vice president has cautioned the students against the ill effects of junk food and for opting right kind of lifestyle.
While imparting knowledge and keeping abreast with the latest methods of pedagogy, schools must acquaint the students about the importance of our ancient civilization, culture, traditions, heritage and history. The understanding of the history should be complete and comprehensive without any scope for bias, he said.
The schools should become resource centers for the neighbourhood community service. There should be greater interaction between schools and neighbouring communities.
Students should take up community assignments and voluntary work in neighbourhood communities and adjoining villages, interact with local administration about the local issues and provide innovative solutions for community and rural development.
Vice President also attended the Summit on “Empowering Young Grampreneurs to Create Jobs” in Bhubaneswar.
We need to reinvent and re-imagine ‘brand India’ and revive our dying industries through our spirited young entrepreneurs. As the world is becoming more globalized, let me advice you to be more ‘local’, Naidu said addressing the gathering.
