However, he suggested educational institutions to introduce cutting edge technologies for enabling the students to make faster progress in their learning process. He said “Capacity building through education will enable students to deal with the real world, particularly to grow in their professional career and participate in the national development. Research creativity, innovation, ability to use high technology, entrepreneurial leadership, and moral leadership capacities are to be built up among students in their formative years by educational institutions for their participation in nation building tasks”.
Dr Kalam also emphasized the need on students planting at least five trees and nurturing them for clean environment. He also said “The challenges of corruption and moral turpitude in the nation, environmental degradation and need of building a compassionate society have to be overcome for making the country economically developed nation by 2020”.
Dr.Kalam also opened a scheme of Ramakrishna Mission Memorial which was launched at the youth convention at the C.C.Mehta auditorium of MS University as part of the 150th birth anniversary celebration of Swami Vivekananda.
