It is seen that the coping skill of the people have decreased now,” he said drawing a comparison between the young and old generations.

“To face the world, we first need to know our roots and learn to take pride in what we are. Our young generation should first be taught about their own land, people, culture, language, resources and opportunities available and the means to utilize it,” he added.
