‘Education should nurture values’


Contemptible values on women prevalent in society are responsible for the violence against them, said Poet Salma.

Speaking at a gathering of school students facing public exams here on Wednesday she said that students should nurture a habit of reading literary works apart from their studies and boys should learn to respect women around them.

“Education should be in such a fashion that nurtures your virtues,” she said.

“Muslim community from which I hail from has little awareness about the importance of education. I myself dreamt a lot about my life. One day I would crave to become a doctor and on another day I would want to become an engineer or a scientist. I even dreamt of becoming a writer indeed. But I had to drop out of school when studying 8th standard. Even boys were not an exception. Elders would love to see boys failed in plus two so than they can soon be sent to gulf countries for some menial work.

Now things are different. You can see school and college. But movies and facebook are distracting students from studies. A director who took several cinemas on love subject has forcibly separated his daughter from her lover recently. Hence you should give importance to education,” Salma said.

Underscoring importance of education she added that a huge earthquake that shook Gujarat a decade ago had thrown several affluent people on streets.

“Only those who had education were able to reconstruct their lives successfully as education cannot be destroyed but will be respected everywhere,” she pointed out.

The programme nicknamed ‘padikarkal’ was organized by Arunai Engineering College. Platform speaker Dindigul I.Leoni in his address asked students to be relaxed and confident while attending exams.

“You can see your image clearly reflected in only calm waters ,” he said. Other speakers include lyricist Piraisoodan, poet Nandalala and platform speaker Manikandan.

College Vice Chairman E.V.Kumaran was present in the event.
