Minister says during 15th annual Unified Council awards ceremony "If India has to emerge as super power, it has through Science and Technology and students sitting here hold the key. You can either create or destroy your own destiny, it's through discipline and determination you can make big," Union Minister of State for Communication and IT K Kruparani said, while taking part in the celebrations of Unified Council fifteenth annual awards. The function, organised grandly at Ravindra Bharathi on Sunday, was meant to award students who secured top positions in National Science Talent Search Examination (NSTSE), State Level Science Talent Search Examination (SLSTSE) and Unified Cyber Olympiad (UCO) held in months of January and February conducted by Unified Council. Dr Kruparani was the chief guest at the function, with eminent writer and motivator Yandamoori Veerendranath, Eminent Psychologist and Trainer Dr B V Pattabhiram, Managing Director and CEO of Talent Sprint Santanu Paul, Additional Commissioner (academics) Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan Dr Dinesh Kumar were the guests at this function. Founder and CEO of Unified Council Srinivas Kalluri presided over the function. He gave a brief report about Unified Council and about the idea and method behind NSTSE. He asked children to stop rote learning and inculcate 'think, reflect and enquire' which will help them to grow. He informed that a total of 6 lakh students from all over India took part in NSTSE, SLSTSE and UCO this year. He also stated that Unified Council has gone global with presence in 14 countries. 39 national rankers from NSTSE, 27 National Rankers from UCO, 24 State rankers and 184 district rankers from SLSTSE were felicitated by minister with gold medal, cash awards. In addition to this best performance school awards were presented to schools based on respective school students' performance. "I consider this a privilege to be one of the guests of honour. Society, parents and school turn students into good citizens. We cannot depend on society under present circumstances, so there is always a greater emphasis on impact of parenting and schools," said eminent Psychologist B V Pattabhiram. He advised parents to control five C's (Cell phone, Cable TV, Cinema, Cricket, Cyber-friendship) and cultivate five T's (Time, Talk, Touch, Trust, Teach values). "I have an association with Unified Council for the past 12 years. Education doesn't necessarily give wisdom. Wisdom is an ensemble; knowledge, intellect, lateral thinking, experience make it. Make your children organisers not workers. Make your children as one who hires 10 Americans under him, not as the one working in America," said eminent writer Yandamoori Veerendranath. Santanu Paul MD and CEO of Talent Spirit parents not be a captain but a coach.
