In an attempt to boost the education sector of Bihar, India the state government has turned to former President APJ Abdul Kalam for his valuable suggestions for further development of the education sector. Chief Minister Nitish Kumar has said that he would send a team to Kalam in near future for his suggestions.
Kalam, who arrived on a two-day visit of the state on Thursday night, met Nitish over lunch at the CM’s house on Friday, where other dignitaries of the state were also present. The former President took keen interest in education and research work in the state and also gave his precious suggestions for the establishment of a Science City in Patna.
He also attended a function of Netaji Subash Institute of Technology (NSIT) at Bihta in Patna district. MM Singh, member-secretary, NSIT, said, “We are highly delighted and excited to have Kalam’s suggestions for a better educational infrastructure.”
While attending a programme, “What can I give”, organized by the Gulzar Group of Institutes here, Kalam told the students, “I am born with potential, ideas, confidence and wings. I was not born to crawl. Everyone should believe in his ability to achieve his goal.”
The students promised the former President that they would always make their parents happy. “If parents are happy, the home is happy. Happy homes make a happy society,” the visionary said. He even asked the young minds to dare stop their parents from taking corrupt ways of living. “We all know the society is corrupted but we hardly dig into our own house to find out the guilt. But if the country has 60 million corrupt citizens, a few of them must belong to us,” Kalam said.
