Dhinendra Lohmor heads the education event organized by the NewsPR for raising awareness in Rural Area near Delhi
NewsPR organized an event in the rural areas near Delhi to raise awareness among the people regarding the education; especially the modern counterparts of the same. The event was headed by Mr. Dhinendra Lohmor who is a corporate banker and has a strong experience in the field of banking, finance and is also an angel investor.
The recent governmental reforms such as demonetisation and digital India called for the promotion of technical education in all parts of the nation. But a vast majority of the people reside in rural and semi-rural areas of India and cannot even read or write a simple SMS. The operation of the accounts and all the other banking transactions digitally seems like light years ahead in such areas. The complex system of digital and technical education is something that can be solved, operated and successfully employed only if the people are taught and trained.
Among the other dignitaries related to the education industry, banking, technical education, school and college teachers of the nearby areas, Mr. Dhinendra Lohmor was present as the chief guest. While a lot of people talked about the importance of education in the day to day activities and helped all people to understand how they can educate themselves apart from getting enrolled in the school; Mr. Dhinendra Lohmor also talked about the technical and digital education promotion.
He said that it is important to first educate people about the things the Government is bringing in practice. They should know how the banking and all the other transactions and processing can be done via the phone itself. They should know the importance of having a bank account and getting it attached to the UID and other such ID Proofs. They should know why the Govt is spending so much time, energy and money in the promotion of technology and digital processes though their line of work is completely different.
Talking more about the education, Mr. Dhinendra Lohmor said that the people who are not literate or literate enough; can easily use the internet and mobile phones to get as much educated as they want. He also told people about the famous Kerala Porter Sreenath K. who qualified the PSC exam using the Free WiFi on the railway station in the free hours. He said that with the help of the internet, one can accomplish more than one’s thoughts and can overcome all kinds of difficulties. Addressing the farmers and dairy operators, he said that they can find out new ways to make their work better and efficient; utilisation and storage of the rain water; manure and fertilizers; crops that can be grown in less water supply; crops that can earn a lot; harvesting processes and soil checking – all of them can be done to maximize their earning.
A lot of school and college students were also present at the event and were told about the various channels they can opt for an education that matters. Mr. Dhinendra Lohmor said that it is true that not everyone can get enrolled in IIT or other prestigious colleges and schools; but this doesn’t mean that he or she cannot make a better life either. Referring to the various learning apps and online learning; he said that it is important to get educated in a way that can help you earn and not depend on the current job market for a vocation. He said that instead of idling away time browsing waste stuff; the youngsters can help the elders to understand and use the internet for better things; they themselves can join the online study groups to get trained or educated in the field they can work in and they CAN actually make a difference.
Laying stress on the wise and smart use of the resources at hand; Mr. Dhinendra Lohmor also said that it is better to be a mechanic or electrician that earns 8000 to 10000 per month by getting training at some Government Workshop than to be an unemployed graduate who is waiting for some job. Mr. Dhinendra Lohmor said that education doesn’t mean only degrees. It means a training to earn your bread by providing services that you have acquired and excel at.
