In the previous quarter, our GDP grew at 8.2 per cent and this gives an indication of our pace as well as our potential. We live in an age of technology  and entrepreneurship,’’ he said.

Inaugurating the platinum jubilee celebration of Karnatak Law Society and Raja Lakhamgouda Law College in Belagavi on Saturday, Kovind said the fourth industrial revolution would herald a change in how people lived and worked. “It is also changing the aspirations of our young people. Our educational institutions have to become compatible with this quest for innovation and excellence. They have to become compatible with the 21st century,’’ he said.
