Join us for a Fireside Chat with Mr. N. R. Narayana Murthy, in conversation with Prof. Ashok Misra (former Director, IIT Bombay). Mr. Murthy will talk about the kind of country India needs to become and the journey we need to help our children embark on to achieve that vision. In a first, the students of VIDYA will act as moderators and further continue the conversation with Mr. Murthy!
What kind of country should India become? What is the role of children in this new India? How should science be taught in schools to make it useful in solving the problems of today? Intrigued and excited by these questions? We guarantee the answers will be doubly so in this very special VIDYA webinar episode with Mr.Murthy.
The year 2020 marks 35 years of VIDYA's service towards the community. We have impacted over 3,75,000 children, youth and women through holistic education and skill training. We thought a session like this will inspire and motivate our children to think different, develop a spirit of enquiry and follow their dreams.
