Kerala: Mollywood superstar Mohanlal, suggests that the young generation should learn to accept failure. The actor recently inaugurated the Council of CBSE School in Kerala at J T Park in Thrippunithura.
The actor said, “I was an average student and studied at a time when there were not many facilities. Today, children are lucky to have all facilities and all of them aim for victory. Thus, winning has become an addiction. But too much of any addiction is bad. It will damage the consciousness. We should also learn to accept failures.”
He further said, “Victory is just like health. It could be lost at any time. The young generation cannot accept failures. So small failures in life lead them to depression. Many films for which I had worked hard day and night have been unsuccessful. I was sad but that didn’t stop me. Cinema is a collective work of many. Every failure in my life encouraged me to work harder. That’s how I overcame failures. So, victories don’t make me over joyous. Education alone doesn’t make good humans. Values should be added to it.”
Jose Thomas, president, Council of CBSE Schools Kerala and chairman, choice group, said that the education system and teaching style practised in the country, should change. He also urged the government to give equal importance to academic and non-academic matters. The council was formed to act as a link between the CBSE schools and central and state governments. Prizes were distributed in the event which was followed by cultural programmes performed by students.
The actor also recalled an incident from PM Modi’s life. A child once asked Modi about what he should become when he grows up. Modi replied saying that he should do good things which would help him become something. “Modi’s reply was good, children should do good things,” said Mohanlal.
