Attending the meeting Brig Joshi said “Sonitpur is going to be the 1st district of Assam for implementing this project where Ex-Servicemen will be appointed at Govt. School to train physical, mental and moral values. After a minimum 18 years of defence service, Ex-Servicemen have that kind of quality training and experience which help our students to be physically fit and mentally strong.”
Amit Raj Konwar, Founder of Edupur Society (NGO) said “When we talk about Indian Defence (Army, Airforce, Navy) certain things came to our mind i.e. patriotism, respect, discipline, physically fit, mentally strong and most important attitude. Our attitude is a fundamental element for building a better human being. In today’s world, it is very important to be a good human being then a corrupt knowledgeable person. So, interaction of ESM with students will defiantly help our education system to produce a better result in future.”
