My dear countrymen,
Our education, education system, education tradition have a great role in preparing the youth, who are possessed with skill and ability, and who have the spirit to do something for the country. Today the country also has a new National Education Policy to meet the needs of the 21st century. Now our children will neither stop due to lack of skills nor will they be bound by language barriers. Unfortunately, there is a massive divide in our country regarding language. We have tied a huge talent of the country to the cage of language. One can find promising people in their mother tongue. If people from the vernacular medium come forward, their self-confidence will grow. Justice will be done to the potential of the poor children when they will become professionals by studying in their mother tongue.
I believe that language is the instrument of the fight against poverty in the new National Education Policy. This new National Education Policy is also going to be a great tool to fight against poverty in a way. The basis of winning the war against poverty is also the education, prestige, and importance of the vernacular language. The country has seen this in the playground... and we are experiencing that language has not become a barrier and as a result, we have seen that the youth are playing and blossoming. Now the same thing will happen in other fields of life as well.
Another special feature of the new National Education Policy is that sports have been made a part of mainstream education instead of extra-curricular. Sports is also one of the most effective means of pursuing life. It is very important to have sports in life for perfection in life. There was a time when sports were not considered mainstream. Parents also considered indulging in sports as a wastage of life. Now, there is a new awareness about fitness and sports. We have seen and felt this in the Olympics. This change is a big turning point for us. That is why, we need to speed up and expand the campaign that is going on in the country for infusing talent, technology, and professionalism in sports.
It is a matter of pride for the country that our daughters are performing in an unprecedented manner in the fields of education, sports, Boards' results, or Olympics. Today daughters are raring to occupy their place. We must ensure that women have equal partnership in every career and workspace. We must ensure that they feel safe from roads to the workplace and everywhere. There should be a feeling of respect for them and in this, the government, administration, police, and justice system will have to perform their duty cent percent. We must make this resolution, the resolution of the 75 years of Independence.
Today I am sharing the good news with the countrymen. I used to get lakhs of messages from our daughters that they want to study in the Sainik Schools. The Doors of the schools should be opened for them. We did a pilot project in the Sainik School of Mizoram two and a half years ago by giving admission to our daughters. Now the Government has decided that all the Sainik Schools will be open for the girls. Daughters too will study in all the Sainik Schools of the Country.
In the 21st century, no obstacle can stop us from fulfilling the dreams and aspirations of India. Our strength is our vitality, our strength is our solidarity, our vitality is the spirit of the Nation First - Always First. This is the time for shared dreams, this is the time for shared resolve, this is the time for shared efforts... and this is the time to move towards victory.
