We should be honest and transparent in our work. We have seen transparency in the work of the central government for the last six years. The Padma Award is its epitome. There is a lot of talent in rural India and I am seeing that the children in the village are becoming IAS, IPS. We should take the consideration of our mother tongue.”
Dr. Vijay Bhatkar said, “The primary education should be in the mother tongue. We have many languages in our country, all languages are rich and they have thousands of years of tradition. Even after traveling to many countries, the question was what can we do for the villages in our country. Our universities should be knowledgeable. And there is a need for value-based education institutions today. I am happy that Suryadatta foundation is working so hard in this matter. “
Raza Murad said, “Today, I am happy to give awards to two young girls. The house always progresses where there are the girls. Their parents recognized their skills and encouraged them. Congratulations to them. Kiran Kumar and I completed 50 years in the film industry. We got here with a lot of hard work and dedication. Life has to be dedicated every time.”
Prof. Dr. Sanjay Chordia said, “Corona taught us that we need to contribute socially along with ourselves. Children need to be nurtured from an early age, to grow intellectually, mentally and emotionally, to be inclusive, to be inspired by people from different walks of life.” For the same purpose, Suryadatta foundation brings this ideal personality to the fore through Lifetime Achievement and National Awards Ceremonies.”
