Most of these children were out of school.
He participated in the campaign at the invitation of UNICEF and the Jharkhand government.
Addressing a gathering of parents and children, he said, ''India was currently undergoing major changes and the younger generation would reap the benefit tomorrow. One can say that India of tomorrow will be lovely, but only those who have the strength will succeed, adding that the strength will come from education.
