Wipro’s billionaire promoter Azim Premji said schools in India should be opened after vaccinating all teachers quickly as the loss of the last one and a half years is too big to ignore for school-going children.
“One needs time to recover the loss of learning. If you keep promoting children to the next class, you are creating an enormous deficit that cannot be filled up,” he said. He further said that children should be exposed to the real world of India – inequitable distribution of income, injustice and indignity of millions – to help grow a sense of humanness within them.
“Go out and engage with the real world. Get your hands dirty, see the problems all live with, and that will move you to do whatever you can,” he said.
