Jaipur, 22 June: Mission Director of Atal Innovation Mission, and Additional Secretary of Niti Aayog, Govt. of India, Dr. Ramanan Ramanathan was the key speaker at the Leadership webinar series ‘Education for Generation Z’ conducted by Manipur University Jaipur (MUJ). Dr. Ramanan said that it is necessary to provide suitable environment for innovation to the young talent because innovation itself brings joy, job creation, social concern and the goal of a self-reliant India can be achieved through Innovation only. Jeet Kumar, author, innovator and CEO, In-Time Tech, said that peace, dedication and patience are the key mantras to become an innovator.
Admiring the ATAL mission MUJ President Prof. G. K. Prabhu said that the young talents of the university have emerged as excellent innovators in collaboration with the government and industry and are creating employment by fulfilling social responsibilities. MUJ pro-president Prof. N. N. Sharma welcomed the guests, while the program was effectively handled by Puneet Sharma, anchor of DD News and Dr. Neetu Bhatnagar.
Talking about the Atal Incubation Mission, Prof. Ramanathan said that there is an ocean of talent in India, but they are not able to achieve the desired successes in the country so they settle and work abroad. Keeping this in mind, the Atal Innovation Mission was established under which innovation centers have been set up in educational institutions with the help of Government, where the new dreams and creations are being realized.
Jeet Kumar, who belongs to a small town but created a story of success, shared that it is necessary to promote the curiosity of young ones to support innovative thinking at the level of the family. Innovation can find revolutionary solutions to existing problems and many youths can get employment and other opportunities. He further highlighted that We also need to accept the failures of the youth because success is often followed by many failures.
