Dubai, Nov 13 : Founder of famous 'Super 30' coaching classes, Anand Kumar who is known for providing free quality higher education to underprivileged students, on Wednesday said education is the only way to make the world a better place.
Kumar, on whom a biopic was released a few months back, emphasized that education is necessary for creating tolerance in the society as it has the power to illumine minds.
"It is education which teaches us to be tolerant, which requires one to be gracious and large-hearted. It needs inner strength and conviction, which develop with education," Kumar said while addressing the Global Tolerance Summit here.
Kumar said education is important as it teaches life skills and is capable of bringing generational change of the underprivileged sections of the society.
"With knowledge, one becomes more understanding and begins to view everything with logic. It strengthens society by building democratic values, respect for fellow human beings, removing any room for discrimination and reducing trust deficit. What is more, it provides every individual the opportunity to lead a decent life, leaving little time and scope for negative thinking," he added.
