"I apologize for speaking the bad word": Suriya gets emotional
By Vivek Raj | Galatta | 01:56 PM
Actor Suriya has often spoken about the importance of education for all students despite his busy schedule. Speaking at a press conference held by the Agaram Foundation on the National Education Policy Draft, the star said, "The Federal Government issued National Educational Policy Report which still did not join the awareness, which is why the press meet was held. The Central Government issued the Educational Policy Report until 3rd Standard, first entrance exam, giving equal importance to education by selecting the options equivalently. This is a matter of the lives 30 Crore students so this can change only if parents and teachers take initiatives to ensure the right Education for their children."
Suriya continued saying, "For the past 10 years, over 30% of the students have been going to schools that do not have any teachers. If you ask the students who have come here, they will tell you the same. 30% of the students are writing their 12th standard exams without any teachers in their schools. How can you expect them to write the NEET exam? How can they write 6-8 semesters when there are no teachers? Then, there are entrance examinations. Children clear several entrance exams right from the 3rd standard, in 5th class, till their 12th standard. They do so much hard work and they go through so much stress and tension. And, once they pass all these, they are told none of these matter and that they have to write only one exam, which will serve as their entry for a degree course. We all have seen the problems that have come out in the NEET entrance exams. When they introduced it, approximately 1,80,000 students from government schools had written the Medical Entrance Examinations out of which only one student had qualified under the NEET quota. This year, nearly 60% of the students have cleared the NEET exam and they belong to the 12th standard batch from last year after joining a private coaching centre. This is affecting the balance that exists in our society and in a huge manner. If this is the case for NEET alone, the same policy is being planned next for all other exams."

Filming on Soorarai Pottru has been progressing at a steady pace ever since production kicked off a while back with the film also including composer G. V. Prakash Kumar scoring music. There is plenty of excitement surrounding the ambitious venture considering Suriya is sporting a short hairstyle reminiscent to his look in films like Nandha and Shree early in his career.
