Youth has the potential and capability to take nation to new heights: Rajnath Singh

“The youth has the potential and capability to take the nation to greater heights and contribute to the betterment of humanity,” he highlighted. Rajnath Singh also advised students to prioritise connecting with the country’s customs, beliefs, and traditions above getting education and information.

“Your values are not only your identity in the world, but it is also that of your parents, teachers and the country,” he said.

The Defence Minister urged the students to focus on character development, emphasising that in India, a person’s worth is measured not only by his or her knowledge but also by values and behaviour, as well as how skillfully that expertise is employed.

“Ego, overconfidence and self-centred attitude are some of the biggest roadblocks to growth,” He went on to say that the goal should be to move forward, bringing everyone along for the ride.

Rajnath Singh encouraged pupils to continue spiritually nurturing themselves, while educational institutions nurtured them academically and mentally.

He additionally argued those in the educational field to keep the eternal flame of learning burning in the hearts and brains of students. He regarded it as the most important aspect of an individual’s personality┬ásince it assures not only personal progress but also the development of society.
