Governor Mukhi attends silver jubilee function of Maharshi Vidya Mandir

Assam governor Jagdish Mukhi said that the main purpose of education is to produce good, productive and conscientious citizens.

Mukhi was speaking at the closing ceremony of the silver jubilee celebrations of Maharishi Vidya Mandir (MVM) Senior Secondary School Silpukhuri, at GMCH auditorium in Guwahati on April 10.

Speaking on the occasion, Mukhi said that in the span of 25 years, the school has supported its students by providing them opportunities and challenges that have enabled them to inculcate in them values, commitments and services for manifesting a knowledge-driven society.

Mukhi lauded the founder of Maharishi Vidya Mandir Schools, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who had sown the seeds of his unique technique in the tender minds. “Transcendental meditation is a scientifically proved technique which when practiced helps an individual to attain his/her full potential,” the governor said while speaking about the founder.

Mukhi congratulated the past and present faculty members and hailed their contributions in shaping the young minds.

“I feel the main purpose of education is to produce good, productive and conscientious citizens,” he said. Referring to Aristotle who once said that a civilised society is one where good people become good citizens, Mukhi urged the teaching fraternity to use their noble vocation to churn good and conscientious citizens.
