Dichotomy in society should be bridged, says professor

India has four million citizens who live below the poverty line with no access to health facilities and education, and on the other end we have billionaires, great scientists and technocrats.

This huge gap between different classes can be bridged by bureaucrats and journalists, opined Prof Sayed Akhil Ahmed, former Vice Chancelor of Mangalore Yenepoya University.

He was addressing the aspirants of NET organised by Jnana Butti on Wednesday at Maharani NTM school.

Todays students mug up before exams, gag out the subject in the exam and forget all about whatever they had learnt, right after the exams are over. This is what is contributing to the for erosion of the value of education. Gaining expertise on a subject or topic is the need of the hour.

In order to succeed in competitive exams, one needs to have clarity on the subject, which will automatically clarity will give way to confidence, to face the exams. Most of them feel competitive exams are a hard nut to crack and only supremely intelligent beings get through those.

“However, they facing those exams is all about preparation, discipline, and hardwork coupled with clever planning. All this combined with the right approach towards exams, makes all the difference rather than intelligence,” he opined.

Today’s India needs human resources in every field. More human resources can be procured from rural India, he added.

Basavaraju, Assistant Commissioner told the NET aspirants to develop self confidence and an ability to deal with competitive exams. He gave few tips on how to management time in the exams and perform well. He told the aspirants to work hard and wished for their success.
