Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): Director of National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) Professor Dinesh Prasad Saklani has said that students are the future of the country and they should have a sense of respect and curiosity towards the knowledge, tradition and heritage of their nation.

By instilling this feeling in the students, future teachers can gain the ability to solve their problems and by removing the inconsistencies of the colonial education system, they can contribute to the national development,” he said, adding that “The New Education Policy-2020 includes a proper vision of solutions to the above questions and challenges.”  

Professor Saklani was the chief guest at the annual prize distribution and cultural event at the Regional Institute of Education (RIE) in the city on Saturday.

He had a separate dialogue session with the students on Sunday morning. He said that they should awaken the feeling of patriotism in themselves and pave the way for making India a world leader again. Citing the example of Japan, he told the students how a nation can become developed on the strength of the national character of its citizens. We should learn from Japan how to be a pioneer. 

He visited an exhibition of models made by the students of the institute on science-technology innovations and geographical-historical and agricultural technology issues. Quoting former president of India APJ Abdul Kalam, he asked the students to dream and fix their goals. He emphasised the need to make good use of time and keep introspecting.
