KOCHI: The National Service Scheme (NSS) has been making efforts to bring out the leadership qualities of students, while also boosting their morale, said Venu Rajamony, Press Secretary to the President of India.

Interacting with students at a two-day seminar organised by the NSS at SRV School here on Sunday, Rajamony said he was an NSS cadet himself during his school days. “Leadership is not a status, but an ability. Every student should showcase their talents by making use of the efforts made by the NSS in this regard. Also, they should use technology to contribute to the country’s growth by acting as ‘smart-change agents,” he said.
Rajamony, who is an expert in Chinese language, also shared the basics of the language with the students.

He also urged students to come forward to support the ‘go green’ programmes. “Switching off power-consuming electrical lights will also contribute to the green initiatives. Excessive consumption of electricity will adversely affect the nature. To be able to become the messengers of change, every student should imbibe seven ‘Cs- Confidence, Competency, Challenge, Commitment, Collaboration, Communication Skill and Compassion” he added.

On the occasion, Rajamony was honoured by Rajiv Gandhi national Institute of Youth Development director Latha Pillai.
