Addressing the gathering further, Pendhakar expressed his viewpoint on education. He said,” I ardently believe that a school is a place where a child spends half of his/her time and it is the foremost source of knowledge a kid is exposed to. It is a space where children should be equipped with tools to become better human beings. Education today extends far beyond the bookish knowledge and degrees. The idea of education should encompass broadening the kids’ horizons by exposing them to different opportunities, both curricular and extracurricular, thus paving the way for them to become smart, respectful, independent and virtuous adults one day.”
