By Our Staff Reporter

ALAPPUZHA, MAY. 23 . The all-India Children's Festival, being organised by the All India People's Science Network (AIPSN) and the Bharat Gyan Vigyan Samithi (BGVS), was inaugurated at a function at the Alappuzha SDV School grounds this evening.

As many as 3,000 students from various parts of the country are participating in the festival.

The playback singer, K.J. Jesudas, who spoke at the inaugural function, reminded the children that the existence of the nation depended on the progress it achieved in the agricultural sector. There should be a deliberate effort to promote interest in agriculture among the children, he said. The modern developments in agriculture should be introduced in the country, he said.

Mr. Jesudas told the children that unity of the country could be achieved only by understanding the culture of one another. The children should strive for it, he said. Mr. Jesudas sang songs in Malayalam, Hindi and English on the occasion.

The former UGC Chairman, Yashpal, who spoke at the inaugural session asked the younger generation to keep alive the spirit of questioning. Answers arise from questions, he opined. Questions arise from constant thinking, he said. Truth could be reached through constant thinking and questioning.

The AIPSN chairman, C.P. Narayanan, presided over the meeting.
