COIMBATORE: The current education system is just examination-oriented and it has to be reformed effectively to guide students according to their aptitude, for their as well as society’s maximum benefit, said former ISRO Chairman G Madhavan Nair at the CMS Matriculation Higher Secondary School on Wednesday, during the inauguration of the  school’s diamond jubilee celebrations.

Madhavan Nair said, India’s achievement in space technology was the result of hard work and dedicated efforts by thousands of Indian scientists. “All these scientists were educated in India and it shows how much India has gone forward in space technology. It must be an inspiration for the future generation to leave their mark in respective fields,” said Madhavan Nair.

He also expressed his concern that for the last ten years, novices had not been entering the research world.

“Its a cause of concern and it has to be addressed seriously. The students just want to get a graduation, a job and salary. This is not a good trend but they should be able to choose a field apt to their talent and should work hard to be in the top position,” added Madhavan Nair.

He also advised the teachers to conduct moral education, teach students to respect others, and how to live in a society and guide them what to do and what not.

The function was presided over by K Rajagopalan, president of the Coimbatore Malayali Association. Towards the end of the session, students participated in an interactive session with Madhavan Nair.
