|Society depends on students: Dalai|
GANGTOK, March 31 – The Dalai Lama interacted with the students of Sikkim at Manan Kendra here recently.
In his address, he expressed his happiness on meeting the students and said, “A future of an individual depends on a community, and of a community depends on a society and of a society depends on nation.” Therefore, the young generation, being the builder of this nation, should be practical and realistic in their thinking.
He added that unlike some mistakes of humanity during the 20th century, which brought huge destruction with the use of nuclear weapons, the 21st century should learn from this and work for the better development of future and prevent violence.
