Today i.,e April 1st 2010 is a remarkable day in Indian History. The Right of Children to Elementary Education is being implemented from today. I personally believe that EDUCATION is the divine potion which can definitely cure the diseases like Poverty, Terrorism, underdevelopment and Domestic Violence. Education cures all these diseases in one go as Education empowers a person. I am really excited about this Right and am sure that it will be implemented in a wonderful manner.
However, I am really hopeful that children get the QUALITY EDUCATION in a decent environment and hope the they continue to get right Teachers to educate them.
Guys!!! India is definitely Incredible and it is definitely Shining 🙂
Following is an abstract from the text of the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s Address to the Nation on The Fundamental Right of Children to Elementary Education:
“We are a Nation of young people. The health, education and creative abilities of our children and young people will determine the wellbeing and strength of our Nation.
Education is the key to progress. It empowers the individual. It enables a nation.
It is the belief of our government that if we nurture our children and young people with the right education, India’s future as a strong and prosperous country is secure.
I was born to a family of modest means. In my childhood I had to walk a long distance to go to school. I read under the dim light of a kerosene lamp. I am what I am today because of education.
I want every Indian child, girl and boy, to be so touched by the light of education. I want every Indian to dream of a better future and live that dream.
Let us together pledge this Act to the children of India. To our young men and women. To the future of our Nation”.
Jai Hind !!!
