Addressing the students Dr A Rajarajan, mentioned that he is motivated to see that there are so many students trying to do wonderful things. He mentioned that learning never stops. Indians are historically considered good in Mathematics from the time of Aryabhatta. We live our lives based on Mathematics. He mentioned that in SIP Abacus, the learning is by combining numbers into the logic of calculation - which gives the correct answer. He asked the children to develop the skill and apply this skill in their day to day life. He said that SIP Abacus system will encourage the children to ask questions and this will enable the children to develop not only number solutions but a scientific temper and fulfill their ambitions. He mentioned that the children should continue to better their skill with SIP Abacus. He mentioned that society cannot progress with individuals alone bettering themselves – only if everyone is a winner. So each student should try to improve themselves along with the people around them. He complimented the SIP Abacus team on organizing a big event in a professional manner.
Prof. Dr. Vetrivel mentioned delight at seeing the concentration levels of the children by which they were not distracted by any activity happening around them. He mentioned that the eye and hand coordination exhibited by the children is a skill that the children should continue to practice for years to come and continue to improve. He noted that the SIP Abacus training is helping children develop logical thinking and reasoning, which is a key skill. He said that the continuous practice and improvement will help the children in their young age as well as when they are adults.
Speaking on the event, Mr. Dinesh Victor, Managing Director, SIP Academy India & International, said that being the 19th Edition we have seen many alumni children who are doing extremely well in their careers and many of them see this experience with the SIP Abacus programme in their formative ages as key reason for that. He also encouraged all the children to continue and complete the course. The measure of progress should be about doing better than what one does previously and not in comparison with others.
