  • Description

    THE DALAI LAMA -- THE FORMER SPIRITUAL LEADER OF TIBET NOW LIVING IN EXILE IN INDIA -- OFFICIALLY OPENED A CHILDREN'S CONFERENCE IN LUCKNOW ON SUNDAY. MOST OF THE CHILDREN CAME FROM THE VARIOUS INDIAN STATES, AND THE CONFERENCE BEGAN WITH A THREE-MILE PROCESSION, THE CHILDREN WEARING COLOURFUL NATIONAL DRESS AND RIDING ON ELEPHANTS AND HORSES AND IN BULLOCK CARTS.

    THE DALAI LAMA TOLD THE HUGE ASSEMBLY OF CHILDREN, INCLUDING SOME FROM OVERSEAS, THAT ALL OVER ASIA, AFRICA AND LATIN AMERICA THE PEOPLE WERE ON THE THRESHOLD OF GIGANTIC TRANSFORMATION OF THEIR COUNTRIES FROM ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL BACKWARDNESS TO ADVANCED MODERN NATIONS. BUT TO ACHIEVE THIS THERE WAS ALWAYS AN INCREASING NEED FOR DOCTORS, SCIENTISTS. TECHNICIANS AND EXPERTS IN EVERY FIELD.

    THE YOUTH OF INDIA, THE DALAI LAMA SAID, HAD A VITAL ROLE IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF THEIR COUNTRY. HE WENT ON: "WE LIVE IN AN AGE WHERE THERE IS A GREAT UPSURGE OF POLITICAL, ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT. FOUNDING FATHERS OF THIS GREAT NATION HAVE PAVED THE WAY AND IT FALLS UPON YOU TO FOLLOW THIS PATH. IN ORDER TO FULFIL THIS GREAT DESTINY, EDUCATION IN THE WIDEST SENSE OF THE WORD PLAYS THE KEY ROLE."
