Founder's Message

The Problem before the country is what you are going to do with the millions of people whom you are training with such heavy expenses and what you are going to do with the problems that continue to grow, whichever government might be there. Unless both these things are put together and we are determined to build up a new nation, our problem will remain the same.

By educating a man, you are creating a new problem. In fact, most of our villages are poor today because education has drained away of our villages are poor today because education has drained away of men from villages into urban areas. And in fact our banking systems, with the best of intensions, has not gone in to the rural area. That has been the cause of impoverishment of our rural area.

Every development has a non-development aspect also, and unless that is taken care of, we will not be able to solve our problem. I, therefore recommend this very strongly. We must give them some allowances during national services.

We have another problem, Our army officers retire early and they are also an army of unemployed people. Why don’t you put them in charge of this programme ? why don’t you harness the experience that they have? This is country where when a man retires, he is of no use. We retire people because we think that we are going to provide jobs to the younger people. But what about the maturity and experience of the retired people? Why should they feel alienated immediately after retirement – that they are not required by the society? Why should they not be harnessed to see that youth is taken care of? A great effort must be made in this regard.
