President Ram Nath Kovind delivered an inspiring speech that dealt with numerous pertinent issues of the country ahead of Independence Day. One of the important points he addressed was about the youth of India. The President termed as ‘heart-warming’ the various paths that the youngsters were taking. He urged that the culture of curiosity is developed in the classroom, while hoping the aspirations of the youngsters were respected by their elders.
In his address on the eve of Independence Day, President Kovind said, “We are a young country, a society increasingly defined and shaped by our youth. The energies of our young are being channelized in so many directions – in a quest for excellence from sport to science, from scholarship to soft skills. This is heart-warming. Nevertheless, the greatest gift we can give our young and our coming generations is to encourage and institutionalise a culture of curiosity – especially in the classroom. Let us listen to our children – for through them the future whispers to us.”
Apart from the youth, President spoke about various other topics, like the revocation of Article 370, the bifurcation of Jammu and Kashmir, the successful elections this year, the importance of unity among the people, the teachings of Mahatma Gandhi, infrastructure development and more.
India will complete 72 years of Independence on Thursday. The day will be marked by various events of national importance like Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s speech and many other events.
