Students who have achieved great success by focussing on their studies in times of crisis like corona are worthy of praise. However, even those who got less marks need not despair. There are talented students even outside the exam system. Marks can not decide the talent of the students. So they should not be disappointed. Teachers should also take initiative to ensure all-round development of students along with their studies, exhorted the founder president of Jawaharlal Darda Education Society, chairman of editorial board of Lokmat Media and former member of Rajya Sabha Vijay Darda. He also emphasised the need to make Marathi language compulsory from standard I to XII in Maharashtra.
Vijay Darda felicitated the meritorious students of Yavatmal Public School together with Krishna Kelapure, who emerged topper by scoring 99.80 per cent marks in CBSE examination, at a ceremony at Darda Udyan on Sunday.
Speaking on the occasion, Darda said it was not only a felicitation of students for making it to the merit list but also a ceremony to honour their achievement in these tough times. There is tremendous competition in the field of education today. However, for a student to be successful in all areas, he has to develop his personality in all respects and not just focus on bookish knowledge. Along with the marks in the written test, skill development is also important. Learning is an ongoing process. So don’t go for less than your full potential. Beyond studies, learn sports, meditation, yoga, swimming, etc. Also pay attention to health, Vijay Darda advised students. Former MLA Kirti Gandhi, secretary of Jawaharlal Darda Education Society Kishore Darda, secretary of Vidya Prasarak Mandal Prakash Chopra, Dr Lalit Nimodia, the principals of all schools and others were prominent among those present on the occasion.
Six students who figured in the merit list were felicitated on this occasion. Noting that the Veenadevi Darda Residential Boarding School at Yavatmal is world class, he hoped that the school would produce good students in the near future.
Prof Ajay Kolarkar conducted the proceedings while the school coordinator Ruksana Bombaywala proposed a vote of thanks.
Mother tongue shows path of development
Vijay Darda advised that Marathi language and Marathi identity should be preserved. All students, be it IB, CBSE or state board, should be able to speak and write in Marathi. The respective regional language is useful to add to the knowledge. It is the mother tongue that shows the path of development. Language is not just a word, language is connected to knowledge. Speak in the mother tongue and it reaches the heart. The sweetness of the morsel fed by the mother is unique. It gives the experience of energy, Panchtatva. Your character is also associated with the language. Therefore, everyone must know their mother tongue, he said.
