'Education must help children speak out'

Education should be such that the children open their hearts and speak out, felt cine actor Suchendra Prasad.

He was speaking at the valedictory of Swarupa vacation camp, at Don Bosco Hall in Mangaluru on Thursday.

Education embodies a broader perspective. “Today we are at crossroads were the education system introduced by Lord Macaulay is considered as the stepping stone for one’s career. But, the acquiring of knowledge and skills, which are equally essential, come through various many ways and such skills needs to be imparted among children,” he said.

Stating that a child’s way of learning is often decided by its parents, without knowing what suits the child most, Suchendra Prasad said that creating of an atmosphere is must to make the child understand the real meaning of education and the real education should boost research aptitude.

In the process, the talents of the child should also be nurtured.

He further said what is obtained from a new revolution is more important that the path of revolution.

Swarupa centre Director Gopadkar lamented that education is being commercialised in a large scale and called upon the parents to spare children from being parrots which reproduce the bookish stuff.

 Children have to receive new things in their learning process, but, schools have been creating fear in the minds of children.

Children’s potential should be tapped effectively, without affecting their childhood and freedom, he added. Yakshagana artiste Taranath Varkadi, Scholar Gururaj Marpalli, P Gopalakrishna Bhat, Gayatri Upadhya and Sumadkar were present among others.
