The Third National Learning Conference

Date: 
March 24 , 2007
Venue: 
Speech delivered by Azim Premji, Chairman, Wipro Corporation.
Abstract: 
"The first point I want to make is that today we live in two different worlds. On the one hand, our constitution makes a commitment to a just, humane and equitable society. On the other hand, we see a world of disparities and a less than satisfactory implementation of legislations, including most importantly, several aspects of the National Education Policy which have still not been implemented. We have the commitment to abolish child labour. We have a commitment to provide education for all, yet millions of our children, including Dalits, tribals and those from economically backward homes are deprived of the most basic school education."
