Addressing a gathering of students during the golden jubilee celebrations of Bapuji Educational Association (BEA) here late on 17th March, Saturday evening, he said: "You should keep courageously working till you achieve your goal." He ignited the students' mind by citing examples of scientists, statesmen, sportspersons, and other achievers.
Kalam highlighted the contributions and achievements of Thomas Alva Edision (inventor of light bulb), Wright Brothers (airplane), Alexander Grahambell (telephone), and Sir C. V. Raman (who discovered scattering of light called Raman Effect). He also mentioned the contributions of Mother Theresa, mathematician Ramanujam, visionary Sir M. Visvesvaraya, scientist Madam Curie and cricketer Sachin Tendulkar.The students should be clear about their passion while choosing their subjects and career, and their parents should allow them to have their way, Kalam said, adding: "Curriculum should be framed in such a way that education shapes the minds of the youth. Our youth are facing many negative things like depleting resources, increase in corruption, etc." The former President took the oath from the students to eliminate such elements so that India becomes a super power by 2020. Speaking on the occasion, Union labour minister Mallikarjun Kharge claimed India has been providing education at low cost. Kharge said how the Centre, under the Right to Education (RTE) Act, is aiming at providing education to all. "The rate of literacy of the country must be raised from 74% to 100%. This can be achieved by further lowering the cost of education and by introducing professional skill-development courses," Kharge said, and appealed to BEA to establish ITI along with employable course-training centre at hobli and taluka levels in Davanagere district. BEA secretary Shamanur Shivashankarappa, joint secretary S. S. Mallikarjun, governing body members Athani Veeranna, Ramanand and MP G. M. Siddeshwar also spoke on the occasion. Over 5,000 students, along with their parents, and others attended the event.
