    • Prime Minister Narendra Modi's address on the occasion of World Youth Skills Day. The day marks the 5th anniversary of the launch of Skill India Mission.
    • Some people always create confusion between knowledge & skill. I say to them that you can read in books & watch on internet how to ride a cycle, this is knowledge but it doesn't guarantee you will be able to ride a cycle. To actually ride a cycle, you need skill
    • I extend my best wishes to youngsters on World Youth Skill Day today. During this time of Corona Pandemic, along with work culture, the nature of job has also changed&the ever-changing new technology has also been affected, but youth is gaining new skills in the changing times
    • Skill is something which we gift to ourselves, which grows with experience. Skill is timeless, it keeps getting better with time. Skill is unique, it makes you different from others
    • People ask me that in these times when businesses & markets are changing so fast how to stay relevant. This question is even more important during this COVID-19 pandemic. Mantra to be relevant is to skill, reskill & upskill
