Stating that the information from the internet was not a source of wisdom, he stressed on the need for reading good books. He said that students can organise programmes related to cleanliness, respecting women and awareness regarding road accidents. He said that violence against women was shameful and a change of mentality needs to be brought in besides the laws. Boys should be taught to respect girls and women right from childhood.
