We are all here to celebrate such leaders and better the process of learning, as I truly believe that it is a lifelong process.”

Speaking at the event, Mr. Manish Sisodia, Deputy Chief Minister, Delhi, said, “Quality education is the need of the hour in our country. Our prime focus for the last two years has been to ensure that education is imparted through creative learning method so that our kids can have a good understanding of them.
