Kollegal, July 10, 2018: “The present education system is based on books and examinations, which has led the student community to face lack of practical experience,” opined Dr M. Prabhu, HoD, PG studies.

He inaugurated a seminar on ‘Usage of Library’, organised by the Library and Information Centre, held at the JSS Women’s College in Kollegal. In his address to the students, he said, “In earlier days learning used to take place in the middle of nature. But today nature is on one side, and we are on the other side. Our ancient education system was a model for the entire world.
The contribution of our country to various subjects like astrology, mathematics, economics, medical sciences, etc., is significant. Today the time has arrived where we have to impart education to our students by integrating technology with our ancient knowledge system and enhance their knowledge,” he added.

“Foreigners adopt our system. But we are more inclined towards the western system. Our focus should be more on a system which balances both theory and practicals,” he said.

Sri Srinivas, Librarian, explained about the use of library and facilities like e-resource, internet, etc. “The facilities available here in this college in a rural area is on par with big cities. All the JSS institutions, irrespective of place, possess all the facilities,” he said. He called upon the students to utilise all the facilities provided in the library and also explained about the benefits and appreciation that will be available for those who make good use of the facilities.

Prof. Umesh, Principal, presided over the function. First-year B.A. student Kum. Kavya S. welcomed and Kum. Ramya N. gave a vote of thanks.
