Telangana Minorities Residential Educational Institutions Secretary, Mr. Shafiullah advises MSians “to have a dream in life and one should work hard to achieve it. He said setting up a goal or dream is not only essential for organization or country but for every individual also and once the goal is set, one should work hard to make it a reality. He further said to achieve the dream one should have planning, preparation and execution. Whatever exams you are going to write whether it is Board Exam, NEET or UPSC, these 3 components (Planning, Preparation & Execution) are must-be in one’s mind to come out in flying colors”.
“During his address, he quoted an example of Singapore, which was a barren land and lacked education but today Singapore has become one of the richest and the cleanest country because they have invested in education which is based on skills. Education should not only be knowledge-based, our education should revolve around knowledge, skills and values.
