Indore: President Pranab Mukherjee Saturday said education was the most efficacious instrument for transforming a society as it broadens perceptions and gives individuals better insights into the diverse aspects of their life.



Addressing the participants of "School Chale Hum Abhiyan' here, Mukherjee said: "Education not only brings about personal evolution and growth but also brings progress and positive development of the people."



Describing the Right to Education a historic step that made education a fundamental right, he said: "Having enacted such a constitutional provision, we would fail in our duty if we did not do our utmost to implement it in letter and spirit."



Urging that the country must reap the dividends of India's youthful demographic structure, he said: "History will not forgive us if we neglect this precious asset. We should aim to achieve better quality, research and innovation in our educational institutions."



Along with all of this, Mukherjee said: "We will need to continuously remind our younger generations of their unique heritage in the form of the Indian value systems which, combined with the knowledge imparted through formal education, will give them the priceless gift of wisdom."



He said education can be used to pursue the goal of inclusive growth of our society, and paying special attention to those that are marginalised due to socio-economic or cultural reasons.
