My congratulations to the young and energetic team which has put this Purnapramati initiative together. The challenge of integrating the education is too big and too large. We have humanity-science kind of fault line which is not that deep but the one with traditional knowledge is very deep. I think we have to look at the depth of the challenge involved in it, and be aware of it. This is one of the projects which is 100 years long. It is a big move which has been started here in this school, by a way to integrate the traditional learning and modern learning. It takes 100, 200, 300 years – that kind of time frame where shifts and enrichment of knowledge happens in that scale. And that we are participating in effort of that scale is itself very empowering. Let’s hope it keeps directing us in the right path and right direction.
