Shri Gaurav Gogoi, Hon’ble MP, in his message as Chief Guest of the day, spoke about the role of education in the changing world. He said, today the role of education is much more important than it used to be.
World is changing so fast either because of Technology, Social media, Economic & Political developments. Every year there is a lot of change in our country and world. And in order to cope with this change, to understand, to adjust to this change it is very necessary to change, adapt our minds, to able to learn, observe and listen – these are very important skills in our world.
What we learn in our school through our books and curriculum help us to an extent. But what is more important is the life skill of listening, the life skill of being creative, understanding that only hard work brings success. And it is the time spent here, students from across the various states of India that they are able to learn the essential life skills. I think the job of educationist here is done. Because these life skills will always be helpful in the years to come, esp in your next education institutions, job, personal and professional lives.
While speaking about the role of every citizen, he said, it is very important to learn about our Indian Constitution. Because as a Political I can say that in our society we live with different religious books. These teach us something different, Every religious book teach us how to be a better human being and society. To be better Indians and to understand what India is we have to understand our Indian constitution is also. Because Indian constitution came about after many years of freedom struggle, it encapsulates all the values of what it means to be truly Indian. What it means to have freedom, diversity, a secular nation, a sovereign nation.
It is very important especially in today’s time, when many questions are raised of constitution of its validity, of its context that young Indians wherever they are they must understand Indian const. It was a collective exercise, – great minds of Indian past came together to frame the constitution. Whether it is in schools, villages, colleges or cities or town if we truly understand our constitution, I can be rest assured that future of India is in safe hands.
On speaking about social media, he said, often on Facebook and whatsapp lots of fake news get published and these become the primary source of information. While I welcome increasing use of social media, I must caution, that we must exercise caution and make also news and library, and to promote this, I am announcing a contribution of Rs. 5,00,000 towards the construction of the public library from my MPLAD Fund.
Fr. Jose Palely, Principal, thanked Shri Gaurav Gogoi, Hon’ble MP, for his generous support towards the construction of the Public Library, all the dignitaries, invited guests, staff, students, media persons and civil society members who made the celebration a solemn one
