New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday stated the mantra to stay related through the coronavirus pandemic within the nation is to ‘skill, reskill and upskill’.
“Many ask me that in today’s fast-changing business and market, they do not understand how to remain relevant. In this time of corona, this question has become even more pertinent. I give only one answer: The only mantra to stay relevant is a skill, reskill and upskill,” he stated in a video message.
His message got here on the event of ‘World Youth Skills Day’, which additionally marks the fifth anniversary of the launch of ‘Skill India Mission’, a pet mission of the Prime Minister that was launched to make India’s youths job-ready.
Making a robust pitch for Indians to be extra expert and connecting it to self- reliance, the Prime Minister asserted: “Skill is unique — it makes you different from others. It’s a treasure nobody can take away. It’s self-reliance that not only makes one employable but self-employable.”
Modi stated that over 5 crore folks have been expert within the final 5 years.
Stressing the necessity for skilling to deal with the priority on jobs, Modi stated: “Millions of skilled people are needed in several sectors in today’s burgeoning businesses, especially in the health sector.”
“This corona crisis has changed the nature of jobs, along with world culture. The ever-changing technology has also created an impact on it.”
Nevertheless, the Prime Minister cautioned, information is completely different from ability.
“A lot of people are confused about knowledge and skill. Such people can read or watch how to ride a bicycle in books or videos — this is knowledge. But actually riding a bicycle is a skill. Knowledge may help, but skill is the actual ability to do things,” he defined.
He added that if the hole between information and ability is bridged, entrepreneurship is inspired, which has been the purpose of his authorities.
