He said that there is not enough awareness among the students about the research field. He said that parents should emphasize on the need to make the student a real personality according to the aptitude test instead of making him a multi-faceted personality. Therefore, from time to time a student’s aptitude test should be mandatory to keep the student on the right track as views change according to age and circumstances. He said that students should give priority to reading books instead of mobiles. He said that science students could play a vital role in the field of environmental conservation. Sharing his experience, he said that if everyone made their house garbage free then the country could be garbage free on its own.
