Prez urges youth of Mizoram to join in forging the future of the nation
Speaking on the occasion, the President said, "India is today a nation on the move. In every field of activity – be it business, industry, trade, education or culture – we are marching forward vigorously led by the ideas, enterprise and energy of our predominantly young population. An emerging India offers enormous opportunities for the youth of our country, including Mizoram. The youth of Mizoram should join hands with the youth from the rest of the country in forging the future of the nation."
The President quoted Confucius and said “Education breeds confidence. Confidence breeds hope. Hope breeds peace”.
Education supports two fundamental objectives of human existence: proliferation of knowledge and formation of character.
He said higher education has a unique role to play in preparing the torch-bearers of tomorrow who will endeavour in different fields - from medicine to engineering, teaching, administration, business, politics and social service – to lead our nation to the high tables of global power. Central Universities should lead the transformation in India's higher education.
