Kalam for promoting a conflict free, harmonious society

President APJ Abdul Kalam on Wednesday said that the education system should lay the foundation among the youth for evolving a conflict free, happy life, resulting in an attitude of giving.

New Delhi, May 23 : President APJ Abdul Kalam on Wednesday said that the education system should lay the foundation among the youth for evolving a conflict free, happy life, resulting in an attitude of "giving".

Speaking at the presentation of 2006, Kabir Puraskar and the National Communal Harmony Awards, Dr Kalam said: "We have to ensure that no devil is allowed to deceive and enter our mind. This will ensure a peaceful environment in the society".

These characteristics must be imbibed in every youth by the parents and teachers at an early age so that they preserve the 'Dharma' and contribute to the societal welfare, added Kalam.

"Inner conflict is the very essence of violence," said Kalam and therefore suggested a novel education scheme 'Jeevan Vidya' to address the basic causes of violence, corruption, exploitation, domination, terrorism and war.

"I understand Jeevan Vidya is a 'teachable human value based skill' that can address inherent conflicts within the mind of the individual, within families, in organizations and in public life," said Kalam, adding that the experts could bring about marked change even among the jail inmates through the use of these techniques.

Dr. Kalam congratulated Ram Babu Singh Chauhan of Uttar Pradesh, for receiving the Kabir Puraskar award for promoting peace and tranquility in his region.

He also congratulated Assam's Ravindranath Upadhyaya and the Institute for Socialist Education of Delhi for receiving the National Communal Harmony Awards.
