In the age of acceleration, students are not just the numbers but our future, and they should reflect the fine balance of excellent professionals with empathy, compassion and mindfulness, he added.

Schools and the education system must strive to prepare our students for the real world and they would require at least six skills, curiosity, critical thinking, adaptability, effective communication, teamwork and collaboration, to become more productive, successful in their chosen career, the Lt Governor said.

Speaking on the transformation taking place in the education system across the country, the Lt Governor said, National Education Policy has put special emphasis on engagement and involvement in both classroom as well as field study.
