India is the sacred land of education, of knowledge: PM Modi | India News

NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Sunday that education awareness is visible at all levels of society and mentioned that India is a sacred land of education and knowledge.
Citing an example, the Prime Minister said that Taimmal living in Udumalpet block of Trippur district in Tamil Nadu is very inspiring.
“Taimmal ji has no land of his own. For years, his family has made a living selling coconut water. The financial situation may not be good, but Taimmal ji spared nothing to educate his son and daughter.His children studied at Chinnaveerampatti Panchayat Union Middle School.One day during the meeting with the parents of the school, it was raised that the condition of the classrooms and the school school needed to be improved; school infrastructure needs to be repaired. Taimmal ji was also present at this meeting. He heard everything,” Prime Minister Modi said while addressing Mann Ki Baat today.
“During the same meeting, the discussion again stopped on the lack of money for this work. After that, no one could have imagined what Taimmal did. Taimmal ji, who had accumulated some capital by selling coconut water, donated one lakh rupees to the school,” the prime minister said.
He added: “Indeed, it takes a big heart, a sense of service, to do that. Taimmal ji says in the school there, there are classes up to 8th standard. Now, when the school infrastructure improves, classes up to upper secondary education will take place. It’s the same feeling I was talking about regarding education in our country.
The Prime Minister has declared India to be the sacred land of education and knowledge.
“My dear compatriots, India has been the sacred land of education and knowledge. We did not limit education to bookish knowledge, but viewed it as a holistic experience of life. The great personalities of our country have also had a deep relationship with education,” he said.
The address comes on Martyrs’ Day which is observed on the anniversary of the death of Mahatma Gandhi to honor his contribution to the freedom of the country.
