India has the potential to provide the largest skilled workforce to the world: Governor

Hyderabad, July 15: Governor Dr. Tamilisai Soundararajan said on Wednesday that India has the potential to emerge as the largest supplier of the skilled force to the world.
The Governor while addressing the “Kamarajar Birthday, Education Development Day and World Youth Skill Development celebrations,” jointly organised by the Madurai Kamaraj University and Desiya Chintana Kazhagam, Chennai, from the Raj Bhavan, here emphasised that “The National Skill Development Mission launched by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi Ji is aimed at creating a skilled force of around 40 crore people in the country. It is time that students and youth take advantage of the skill improvement schemes launched by the Centre to hone their skills.”
Dr. Tamilisai Soundararajan pointed out that mere degrees were not of much use unless one possesses the right skills for the right job or to be an entrepreneur.
Narrating an anecdote during the American visit of Swami Vivekananda, the Governor said that when some well-dressed shooters were unable to hit the target, Swami volunteered to hit the target with the gun.
“Looking at the saffron-clad monk, they mocked at him saying how a monk would handle the gun and hit the target. The swami took the gun and hit the target accurately to the astonishment of the people around. They were shocked and asked him as to how he could hit the target perfectly for which Vivekananda replied that this was due to his mastery of focus which he attained through the meditation. The Dhyana helps in concentration and focus that are essential to reach our goals,” she said.
Dr. Tamilisai Soundararajan exhorted the students and youth to concentrate on improving their skills so as to excel in their chosen fields.
Referring to the great contribution of Bharat Ratna Kamarajar, the Governor said that he was a pioneer in educational reforms by establishing numerous schools and launching the free meal to the students in educational institutions.
“The karmaveerar’s path-breaking initiatives in the irrigation development, setting up of industries, and corruption-free transparent administration, and his simplicity and austere living were of great examples to emulate,” she added.
“Hon’ble Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi Ji said that had the great leaders like Lal Bahadur Shastri, Jaya Prakash Narayan, Ram Manohar Lohia, and Kamarajar were alive, they would have supported him in his endeavours in developing, and strengthening the country,”  Dr. Tamilisai Soundararajan said.
The Governor called upon the youth to emulate the ideals and humble and simplistic life led by Kamarajar in the service of the nation.
Madurai Kamaraj University Vice-Chancellor Prof. M. Krishnan, Registrar Dr. V S Vasantha, Desiya Chintanai Kazhagam organising secretary Ma Ko Chi Rajendran and others were part of the inaugural session.
