ABOUT 30% of Indian youngsters in the country have left school and many are involved in crime, Makkal Osai reported.
The paper quoted Natural Resources and Environment Minister Datuk Seri G. Palanivel, who advised these students that they had avenues to pursue their education.
“Among these are technical training institutes,” he said.
Although many of them achieved educational excellence in secondary schools, there were some – about 30% – who were unable to cope with their studies and had opted out, the minister said after opening a Higher Education seminar for STPM and SPM students at Universiti Malaya campus on Saturday.
Palanivel called on social organisations to provide guidance and motivation to these Indian students who had left school.
> Tamil Nesan reported that veteran South Indian actress Manorama, fondly known as aachi by her fans, was admitted to a private hospital in Chennai, Tamil Nadu Sunday evening. She might have to undergo angioplasty.
The paper reported that she was now in coma at the intensive care unit.
Manorama, who has acted in over 1,000 films spanning over five decades, is one of the finest comedians of the southern film industry.
