CM honours meritorious students Bhopal, August 7, 2019 (Ataullah Faizan): Chief Minister Shri Kamal Nath has said that our future generations should preserve their values, civilization and culture in today’s environment. This is the power that has made our country great all over the world. Shri Nath was felicitating meritorious students at a function of a private channel in the Vidhan Sabha auditorium today. The Chief Minister said that our country’s Army and wealth is not our real power. Unity in diversity is our greatest identity and strength. He said that there is no country in the whole world, where there are so many different castes, religions, languages, rituals and festivals, as there are in our country. Despite this, we stand with complete unity under a tricolor flag. Shri Nath said that this is our greatness, which is accepted by the whole world. The Chief Minister said that the new generation must not let this identity be lost. Shri Nath said that future generations should move forward with better thinking, values, Indian values and culture and be educated. This is a challenge facing our educational institutions and teachers. He said that we all should make efforts to ensure that our children, who are the future of the country, should connect to our values and culture. He said to the children that they will acquire education from school and college but they would get knowledge only from their family, society and country. The Chief Minister said that there is a limit to being educated but there is no limit to knowledge. He said that I still gain knowledge about something or the other everyday. This knowledge is our power. This is what gives us experience and always guides us through difficult situations. He said that we have many resources today which we must use to increase our knowledge. The Chief Minister congratulated the organizers for starting the tradition of felicitating meritorious students. He said that this gives encouragement to the successful students and inspires other children. Higher Education Minister Shri Jitu Patwari said that as intended by the Chief Minister Shri Kamal Nath, efforts are being made to connect the new generation with the new education technology. For this, 350 e-libraries and e-labs will be opened in colleges and universities of the state in the next one year. School Education Minister Dr. Prabhuram Chaudhary and Public Relations Minister Shri P.C. Sharma also attended the function. The Chief Minister honoured 57 girls and 10 boys for scoring highest marks in the examinations. He also honoured Sushri Bhavna Deharia, the first woman to conquer Everest. On this occasion, the Chief Minister released the ‘Coffee Table Book Medha’.
