He further suggested that students should develop a strong value system by being open to new ideas, learning them and unlearning outdates ideas in the process. This would help energize people around them. He said that learning about new cultures, paradigms should be ingrained as age should not be a factor for learning and everyone should learn to question as the hierarchy of ideas is more important than that of men and women.
