Give importance to moral education rather than getting ranks – Sri Vishakantamurthy

Kollegal, Mysuru 24, 2019: “There has been a lot of improvement in the fields of science and technology in the present era and there are many talented students who are capable of scoring ten on ten in exams. But rather than ranks, it has become inevitable to give more importance to moral education,” opined Sri Vishakantamurthy, Principal, JSS Nursing School, Kollegal.

He delivered a lecture on the topic “Role of Youth in Building a Good Society,” organised by the NSS, at the JSS Women’s College in Kollegal.

“Students who are getting physical education are indeed being deprived of moral, social and cultural education. It is very sad to note that even parents neglect these factors. As Swami Vivekananda has told what we require today is the youth should become more physically and mentally strong. Students should be motivated based on their interests,” he said.

Prof. Umesh, Principal, JSS Women’s College, Kollegal, presided over the programme. “Today’s students want to become rich overnight. They should be taught the values of life. The foundation of life can become more stable and safe when students get moral education at school and college level. Here we should recall the works of reformation of the society by the 12th Century reformer Basavanna. There is a need to teach the youth that their roles in building a good society is very important,” he added.

Prof. Basavaraju, NSS Program Officer, Prof. Mamatha, Volunteer, were present on the occasion.
