New generation should learn to accept failures as well: Mohanlal
Kochi: The new generation, who has difficulty in accepting failures, should learn to accept failures along with success, said actor Mohanlal. He was speaking on the occasion of the official launch of the Council of CBSE Schools Kerala and felicitation of CBSE toppers by the council at a function held in Jose Thomas Performance Art Center (JT Pac), Thrippunithura, here on Thursday. Mohanlal also released logo of the newly formed council on the occasion.
“The tolerance level of the new generation is low. Even small failures lead them to depression. While trying to succeed, they should prepare to face failures also,” said Mohanlal. The actor felicitated the state level CBSE rank holders and toppers of 10th and 12th standards from all the districts. The twelfth standard toppers from Ernakulam, the host district, and toppers from the founder schools were also felicitated on the occasion.

Speaking on the occasion, Jose Thomas, President, Council of CBSE Schools Kerala and Chairman, Choice Group, stated that the education system as well as the teaching style existing in the country should change.
