Observing that talented students will be recognised by people, he advised students to ensure that they utilise their time by reading novels, science fiction and engaging themselves in extra-curricular activities to gain knowledge.

He suggested educational institutions to take up the responsibility to expose children to the various problems faced by society. Apart from reading textbooks, he urged students to think about the responsibilities they can take to improve the society.

Prof Halemane said that personality development is also an important facet that needs to be promoted among students. He said that new opportunities are opening up in several fields for talented students.

However, Prof Halemane said that education for women is weak in rural areas and there is a need for opening more educational institutions in such areas.

Stressing on the importance of NSS, Prof Halemane said that apart from taking degrees it is also important for people to work in the community.
