World Student Day–in honor of Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam, one of India’s greatest educators.
“You have to dream before your dreams can come true,” said by Dr. Abdul Kalam. And he lived his dreams till the last breath.
Kalam was born in India on October 15, 1931. A lifelong scientist, he played a prominent role in India’s 1998 nuclear weapons tests which established him as a national hero. Among his many accolades, which included honorary doctorates from 40 universities, he was granted the Padma Bhushan (1981), the Padma Vibhushan (1990), and the Bharat Ratna (1997), India’s highest civilian awards, for his contributions in modernizing government defense technology.
Known as the People’s President, Kalam was so popular that MTV nominated him for a Youth Icon of the Year award in 2003 and 2006.
Kalam was known as “Missile Man of India” for designing the missiles and testing them as a scientist. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam was born on October 15, 1931. He came from a family whose financial conditions weren’t sound enough. As a means to support his family’s meager income, He took up odd jobs in his childhood, but never gave up on his education. A milestone was achieved when locally built Rohini-1 was launched into space, using the SLV rocket.
Upon watching the raving success of Kalam, the government agreed for initiation of an advanced missile program under his leadership. He played a pivotal role in developing missiles under the missions Agni and Prithvi. Kalam believed in creating an education system that highlights the importance of entrepreneurship.
3BI Concept is going to provide the students of India with a new education system to India. This company’s education system will create a number of good jobs in a variety of fields and students will be satisfied with the new way to learn. “In the present context, the education system has to be designed to see that we generate a large number of employment generators and not employment seekers,” said Kalam.
To achieve this, Kalam listed a three-prong strategy that will make education more attractive, skill imparting, and simultaneously create employment potential.
First, the education system should prepare students to get oriented towards setting up enterprises, which will provide them creativity, freedom, and ability to generate wealth, he said. Second, the banking system should provide venture capital to the graduates who have aptitude and keenness to create their own new enterprises. Third, “entrepreneurs have to produce competitive products for becoming successful in their missions,” Kalam said. Referring to the role of technology and its impact on society, he said, “Technology is the non-linear tool available to humanity, which can affect fundamental changes in the ground rules of economic competitiveness.”
3BI Concept will surely help Indian children follow the 3-step technique of Dr. Kalam. Science is linked to technology through applications. Technology is linked to the economy and environment through the manufacture of knowledge products. Economy and environment are linked to technology, which promotes prosperity to society. We have to use innovation to generate high value-added products for becoming a global player,” he said.
The United Nations declared “World Students’ Day” on Oct. 15th, which was Dr. Kalam’s 79th birthday.
3BI Concept pays great respect to one of the greatest educators of India and hopes that our 21st-century education system will bring students closer to what he had DREAMED of
