Hyderabad: “Character and human values” cannot be taught by others, but they have to be imbibed by one’s own. The school and college where one studies, were the determinant factors in shaping the attitude of any person”, said well-known educationist and MLC, Mr Chukka Ramaiah.
Mr C Ramaiah was speaking at a book release function at the Bharat PG College for Women at Kachiguda, here on Friday. The Director of the State Council for Educational Research and Training, Ms Shesha Kumari released the book “Nadaka”, written by Mr C Ramaiah based upon his own life experiences. They stressed upon the significance of moral values in every stage of life, especially inculcation at the school itself.
Mr Ramaiah dedicated the book to his wife, the late Laxmibai, who he said, had played an immense role in his successful journey both in personal and professional lives. Speaking on the importance of values in life, he likened them to the melted sugar in milk. He also urged girls not to lose character since they were responsible for the successive generation and play a crucial role in domestic affairs, which plays a vital role in shaping one’s attitude.
The Telangana Rachayitala Vedika president, Mr Juluri Gouri Shankar, who presided over the event, while showering praise on Mr Ramaiah, said that he was responsible for the State getting an IIT institution. “Of every eight engineers in the USA, four were from our State and they were students of Mr Ramaiah,” he said, adding that the Telugu people residing in the Silicon Valley were evincing interest in having Telugu as second language because of Mr Ramaiah.
