The Newspaper in Education Programme (NIE) aims at teaching school
children to read the newspaper and make reading an enjoyable experience.
While addressing the students, Mr. Ari
highlighted the role that newspapers played in his life. He
suggested compulsory reading of newspaper everyday as it would expose the
students to several global issues. He added that, reading the newspaper would
enhance the thinking abilities and also generate a creative and analytical mind
in students. During the
interaction with the students, he posed questions on various subjects and
spot prizes were distributed to the students. The students responded
enthusiastically. It was a fun-filled programme.
