Help develop villages, Kalam urges students

Friday October 26, 2012 12:25:20 AM, IANS

Lucknow: Former president A.P.J. Abdul Kalam Thursday asked youngsters to spend some time of their lives in villages and take interest in the rural clusters' development.

He urged students and staff of the Lucknow Christian Degree College to select a rural complex comprising of about 50 villages with a population of around one lakh in the neighbourhood of the college and transform it into a dynamic, economically viable, ethically rich Providing Urban Amenities in Rural Areas (PURA) complex.

At a function at National Botanical Research Institute, Kalam asked the new generation to be creative.

"Imagination leads to creativity and creativity leads to thinking. Thinking provides knowledge and knowledge makes you great," he said.
