Second day of the occasion at the National conference on the Autonomy of Education in which the award ceremony was held, Prof. Kaptan Singh Solanki stated that Manav Rachna is the manifestation of the human element in man. Governments may come and go, but the nation goes forever. And in that our identity, culture and civilisation are of paramount importance for which the role of education and the people behind it can in no way be undermined. In fact, autonomy, peace and prosperity can be achieved through a lifestyle ingrained in traditional values on which the pillars of our culture and civilisation in Bharat rest.
On the first day of the Conference, Hon’ble Minister Shri Ram Bilas Sharma, Education Minister, Haryana, enthralled the gathering with his philosophy on education saying “Teaching has never been a profession in India but a dedication and a way of life. While the 19th century belonged to Europe and the 20th century belonged to America, the 21st century belongs to India which is definitely on the path of greatness.”
