At a time when thousands of students are falling victim to depressions across the globe for witnessing their academic chores so badly affected by Covid-19, MOTIVATION comes as a handy book to re-energize their minds and channelize them towards positivity.
A total of 2.60 crore students study in different colleges, followed by 70 lakh students in universities and 20 lakh in the standalone institutions in India.
“The basic objective of preparing this document is to stimulate more than three crore students of higher education of the country about different prospects of activities even after the confinement of spaces due to the COVID-19 pandemic”, said Dr. Ankuran Dutta, managing trustee of ARMT.
Dutta added, “This brief, but comprehensive document with 10 important concepts will enable human resources to foresee the new way of life that depends upon the mental strength rather than the physical one. It will motivate them to be academically and mentally healthy”.
The document has been highly shared and forwarded to students’ groups of different colleges and universities since it is publicly made available on ARMT’s website https://www.armt.in/covid-19.
“We have also uploaded the document on our University website as it will help students to remain motivated in these difficult times,” said Prof. Birinchi Kumar Das, Vice Chancellor of Bhattadev University.
