Then Dada’s extremely stimulating and enlightening speech was heard by the audience with rapt attention. Dada rightly said that modern education has sharpened the intellect but hardened the heart. While our mind is as sharp as razor, our hearts are as cold as ice. We can remember 2000 math’s formulas at any given time but don’t know even one line of Bhagvat Geeta. This is because our modern education has divorced God. Further, He said the new education should focus on Character building, Service, Cultivation of the soul, etc. Some practical suggestions to achieve the goals were to Decrease the number of students in the class, Be conscious of your thoughts as thoughts become action and repeated actions becomes a habit, Appreciate the efforts of the students, Awaken the heart and Learn from the life of great people. Thereafter Dada answered the questions of the curious minds. The questions were aptly put forth by Prin. Manju Nichani before Dada. Some of the questions answered by Dada were How to deal with a difficult co-worker, Why do bad things happen to good people, Is it ethical to consume medicines with non-veg components. All the questions were well-answered by Dada. After the question answer session the book was launched by the guests. Dr. Rajan Welukar spoke about the power of thoughts and to remember that growth was not development. Mr. D. Sivanandan said if only people learned from the beginning that crime was not the right path, the world would be a better place to live. Dr. Snehlata Deshmukh reiterated the power of respect and recognition. The event ended with a vote of thanks by Mr. Niranjan Hiranandani, who was all in praise for the troubles Dada takes for us.
