“Life should not be limited to scoring high marks in exams. Learning about leading life is also equally important,” opined Karnataka Police Academy Deputy Director Dr. Dharanidevi Malagatti.
She was speaking at a function organised by Lions Club of Mysore South to present ‘Dakshina Kesari’ award to SSLC toppers, at Sarada Vilas College Centenary Hall in the city yesterday.
“Compared to rural students, city students have better opportunities of learning. Concentrating on studies from young age will help students achieve more in life. But, apart from studies, students should also learn about the intricacies of life maintenance, social responsibility and well being of the society and they should engage themselves in a creative and active life,” she said and suggested the parents and teachers to mould their children into good and responsible citizens.
