We need to crave for an education system where everybody is able to express themselves freely without the fear of being misjudged, former president Pranab Mukherjee said here on Monday.
"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world. The world around us is moving at a fast pace. We don't have time to delve into our conscience. Though a lot of positive developments have taken place in the education sector we still have a long way to go," he said.
"We need to crave for an education system where everybody is able to express themselves freely without the fear of being misjudged," Mukherjee said.
The former president also lauded the students who were awarded for their exemplary performance saying academics is not the only sphere which makes an individual succeed in life but holistic development.
The Ramjas Foundation established its first unaided primary school in May 1971 under the name of Ramjas School (Anand Parbat).
